Terrapin Takes, Friday 6/14: Maryland Rankings, B1G Time Hate, NFL Terps


  • I’m not entirely sure why the Orlando Sentinel has the Maryland Terrapins on their radar, but then I’m not complaining about the exposure. Considering Randy Edsall’s tenure to this point, I shouldn’t be surprised that the Terps are ranked 77th overall this year by Ms. Romero of the Sentinel. She does have a realistic take on the Terps, and what their outlook looks like given the amount of players lost. But this guy’s Maryland Pride tinted shades this we can do better.
  • Matt Bracken of the Baltimore Sun gives us an article that should be shown at every single meeting with a new recruit (looking at you, Jalen Tabor and Damien Prince). It’s a picture gallery of the 31 Maryland Terrapins that are currently in the NFL. I know that there are plenty of other schools that might have more than Maryland, but I’m damn proud of every player on this list. Not to get emotional or anything, but I love how well these guys represent the school. None of them are slapping lawyer’s butts in the court room.
  • And so it begins: OffTackleEmpire.com on the SBNation network of sites decided to choose Maryland for their Friday hate piece, and it’s a doozie of an article. They hate that we don’t have a rival, think we’re the unwanted stepchild of the ACC, and more or less plow us sideways for our existence. I’ve got some choice words for this guy, and they’ll be going up today, so in the meantime just read it and enjoy it with a little laugh. With such passionate fans, the B1G will recognize us in no time.
  • Despite their webpage looking like a Geocities template, theOzone actually pumps out some decent content, and they recently did some long-term B1G predictions. In those, they praise Maryland and hate on new B1G addition Rutgers, which makes it A-OK with me. Give it a looksie here.
