Calling all Terps Fans

In September, The Post will introduce a new reader-driven blog for fans, by fans, focused solely on Washington sports. To fill out our roster of fan bloggers, we're looking for two of our best, most die-hard Terps fans to weigh in on whatever's happening in the world of University of Maryland sports. While we'll ask all bloggers to occasionally weigh in on all the Washington professional teams, we're particularly interested in having a pair of established Terps voices as part of the project.

We're not just looking for regular fans, we're looking for fans who live and breathe the team, who are always scrambling for more information on Alex Wujciak's Nagurski chances and future Terps point guard Sterling Gibbs, who know about the offenses new lacrosse coach Scott Tillman helped run at Navy, and who watch WNBA games just to get a glimpse of Marissa Coleman and Kristi Toliver.

Although the blog will not launch until September, you can get started right away by filling out this form.

So let me get this right . . .The Washington Post is asking for fans to do thier job? Are you seriously asking for fans to provide up to date info that may not even be true? Are fans who come here looking for info going to question the veracity of the info on these blogs? Might want to think about this one a little bit more.

How do you define "die hard: fan? I hope you don't mean koolaid drinkers like Barno who think GW is a god. People shouldn't apply for this. Read the comments from last year and pick those you think fit your idea. It's simple for me, if you pick the wrong two i just won't read it.

Umm, I think we have already done this on our own. But, to give the guys the props that they deserve, I nominate Ben Broman and Dave Tucker from Testudotimes.com

larry31 has it exactly right. Terp fans already have testudotimes.com, which is exactly the blog you're describing. Just tell your Terrapin Insider blogger to link to their "Maryland Minute" post every morning, and you're set!

If you want to do Terp nation a favor and publish some great, original, Maryland-centric content from a legitimate, web-savvy journalist, why don't you hire Patrick Stevens (d1scourse.com) full time?

I actually tune in to this channel to READ whatever Petecard, Barno and the Sigma Chis, Poopy, carolinaterp and especially Russtinator, larry and Makhbar have to say. and thats just the tip of the iceberg. I especially like when they complain about the reporting and such.
The comments section is consistently more entertaining than the actual reporting.

Larry nailed it. Thats why we have the testudo times and tune into that everyday. Those guys do an excellent job across sports but mainly the two that matter - Men's BB and FB. For some reason, the comments section on their blog does not even come close to the commentary, insights and disagreements on this board, which why I tune in here first.

Besides, a ton of us are Baltimore Orioles fans which according to the WaPo is not a Washington Team.
