Buy Terps season tickets and $ave

UPDATE: I missed the fact that Maryland previously sent out the huge Edsall-themed ad, seen below, to the same mailing list. That doesn't really change his lack of prominence in this week's ad, but it's worth noting. Apologies. When people were bandying about various names for the Terps head...

Gary Williams says Terps must unite

Maryland AD Kevin Anderson has managed to quickly become something of a lightning rod among Terps fans. Witness the comments on this blog item, for example. Gary Williams, though, thinks it's time for unity, something he says the Terps have long lacked. When asked about Anderson on the Junkies...

Scott Van Pelt on the Friedgen firing

ESPN's Scott Van Pelt is certainly one of the most visible Maryland super fans in the country, never hiding his Terptitude on TV or the radio and frequently coming home for games. So I think maybe he had his finger on the pulse when ESPN 980's Kevin Sheehan asked him...

When Ralph Friedgen had a drink with Gary Williams

Since this seems to be the season to write long, emotional blog posts about departing sports figures, let me direct you to Kevin Van Valkenburg's top-notch farewell to Ralph Friedgen for the Baltimore Sun.
