Maryland quarterback Scott Zolak said he's not concerned with duplicating his record-setting debut this Saturday against West Virginia.
"I'm not worried at all; I just went out and played last Saturday, and I'm going to do the same thing this Saturday," he said of his effort in a 20-13 victory over Virginia Tech. He completed a school-record 28 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns against the Hokies.
"Expectations are for people on the outside to talk about," he continued. "I just try to do whatever I need to do for us to win."
If anything, said the fifth-year senior, he expects the game to be decided by defense.
"They've got a very good defense with a lot of tough, big hitters, but we do too -- that's how it always is when we play them."
Wide receiver Barry Johnson, who was hobbled by sore legs and was listed with the third team in the week leading to the opener, will probably start for the Terrapins against West Virginia, according to Coach Joe Krivak.
Johnson, who caught 43 passes last season, was one of the few Maryland receivers who didn't make a catch against the Hokies -- in part because of his injuries and also because he was used as a reserve tight end due to a shortage of players at that position.
"I suspect we'll go with Johnson and Norris Hanes but we'll play four, maybe six different people at wide receiver," Krivak said. "We practice that many people and I'm not afraid to use any of them at any time."
