The decision to place Maryland undergrad and junior mechanical engineering student Sam Hollenbach as starting quarterback is "all but settled" according to an August 5, 2005 article in the Sports section of the Washington Post.
"It is still going to be a competitive situation and there is still a lot of football to be played on the practice fields before our first game, so you never know," states Terps Football coach Ralph Friedgen. "But what he has shown is that he will not turn the ball over, he is a quick study and he continues to improve."
The first scheduled Terps Football game is set for Saturday, September 3, 2005 against Navy in Baltimore, aired on CSTV at 6:00 p.m.
