The Fans, the Crowd, the Letter

Here is one of the interesting e-mails I got after today's story. What does everyone think?

"Interesting that Maryland is concerned about attendance at football games. Ask them about the insulting letter they sent to season ticket holders a couple of years ago about how much they were contributing to the Terrapin club. I had season tickets for many years even when they were losers and were lucky to get 20,000 fans in the stadium. My wife & i commuted 1 1/2 hours each way to and from PA for the games. The money was more important than the fans so after that letter I choose to not return, and I will never set foot in that stadium again. So don't complain, they got what they wanted. Big contributors that
don't stick around in so-so times."

I honestly don't recall such a letter. Perhaps it went out to non-Terrapin Club season ticket holders?

Perhaps this guy should include the details of the letter...

Barring a drastic change of heart, it appears unlikely that Dunbar running back Tavon Austin will stay in Maryland for college.
Austin told's Mike Farrell this week that he’s narrowed his list of schools to three.
“I haven’t taken any official visits lately,” Austin explained. “I went to West Virginia a little while back and that went pretty good. I’m not going to take all five of them.
“I’m taking an official to UNC on November 7, and I think I might make my decision after that. I’m looking at West Virginia, North Carolina and Michigan right now, but I might not make it to Michigan. I’d say West Virginia is leading by a little bit.”
• In Mike Farrell’s Weekly Whispers column, the analyst says that Hawkins and his Quince Orchard teammate, defensive end Jason Ankrah, have been impressed with Penn State’s 8-0 start.
Speaking of Penn State, numerous prospects who didn’t have interest in the Nittany Lions suddenly are interested after the team’s awesome start. While Gaithersburg (Md.) Quince Orchard defensive end Jason Ankrah has always loved Penn State, teammate Travis Hawkins - a cornerback - once again is showing a lot of interest.
* Jelani Jenkins and Isaac Holmes will be signing with the University of Florida.

Go Tar Heels !
