From our time together, I know that many of you are Maryland Terrapins fans like myself. I used to have season tickets, and there was a time where my passion for Maryland equaled my love of the Wizards. Even today, as the basketball program fades more into mediocrity, the Terps are one of my first loves.
That's why I encourage everyone to check out Testudo Times, the brand new SB Nation Maryland Terrapins blog. I have no idea where the blogger came from, but already, I like what I see. I'm already registered, and I'm sure a number of you will follow suit.
This opening paragraph was the one that pulled me in.
You know what it’s like to be in the Final Four, up by ten with less than a minute left and lose. You know what it’s like to be winning 24-3 with a minute to go in the third and the ball at the three and lose. You know how it feels to continuously lose home-town recruits to hated rivals. You know the feeling of perhaps the greatest player to ever play in the ACC (in our opinion, at least) die far too young. You know the pain of Joel Statham. You are aware of losing to American and Ohio, back to back. You’ve experienced the sensation of dealing with great coaches perhaps lessening, and average ADs ruining the program. Not to mention losing Terrance Jennings, Bobby Maze, Ken Bowman, Gus Gilchrest, and Tyree Evans all in one recruiting class.
Yup, sounds about right.
