Big Ten fans, sooner or later we're going to have massive flamefests with the Terps like we do with each other, so lets get to know our enemy.
1) Why a turtle of all animals? It isn't exactly a fighting animal.

An homage to the bay.
I would really recommend that you tread lightly. You'd much rather this board be your friend than enemy.

You obviously haven't seen the commercial with the roaring turtle

That sounds glorious.
This should answer your question:

My question is, your uniforms....the BIG generally doesn't do the "Oregon" thing....Do y'all have "normal" jerseys to wear or is it always the Nascar look?
The BIG does however, usually has one game when a team will wear a "throwback" jersey paying homage to a championship team of their past or something of the like....Does Under Armour do that for you?
Okay, my question: What's with all the Bojangles stuff? I've been reading your board for the last couple of days and I don't get it.
Umm the last time we won a football champions our uniform looked like this
pretty sure that's not allowed anymore
As far as our football coach is concerned, University of Maryland football did not exist before January 2011. He has done everything he can to remove any proof of any teams that were not coached by him.
These are are "normal" uniforms this year, but we have at least 4 other designs (white ops, black ops, white pride, black pride).
The ACC is a piece of shit white trash redneck conference, and everything is sponsored by Bojangles Chicken or Food Lion. These crappy businesses are basically nonexistent except in the south, so they constantly remind us that we're outsiders in this cheap backwoods conference.
Here's the real answer:
i'm not a fan of all the different uni's teams wear, I like tradition....USC, PSU (until this year, names on jerseys), Bama, tOSU, Okla, Texas......teams that know they don't have to "jazz" it up every week, they have the history...
I'm also not a fan of some of our "throwback" stuff, but I have to say, the helmet for the game this week looks badass...
Those "tradition" schools generally have consistently had solid programs. We haven't. Sure we have some bright spots (like the early 50s), but we also have entire decades of embarrassment (90s).
Look at what the uniforms did for Oregon. Nobody cared about them. Then they got the uniforms and people started talking about them and wanting to watch them. Recruits became interested in them, and they got good.
Last year when we unveiled our "pride" uniforms, suddenly Maryland football was the #1 topic on all of the sports shows. Sure a lot of people said "they're awful", but you know what - they were talking about us; something nobody would be doing if they wore regular uniforms. Plus, when every old white guy hates them, chances are the kids we'd want to recruit like them.
I mean this with all do respect....you should read this and take it to heart. Pissing contests are great and all but I'm pretty sure you guys have never seen the likes of our fans before.
9/21/2010...RIP Old IMS.
Sorry, the uniforms are here to stay. We've always wanted to be the Oregon of the Midwest.
I come in peace.
Detroit asphyxiation has prepared me for Old Bay asphyxiation :)
Well I've been a Michigan fan on the MSU or Ohio board. gtfo is the standard greeting.
When I thought of Maryland I thought of our capital and gentlemen fans. Why do you say the B1G hasn't seen the likes of your fans?
Roving grape squads.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
I guess you also don't understand why there is a flag on our football helmets?
Yeah whats the roving (g)rape squads I see here?
No, enlighten us. Your uni's are fantastically ugly. Ugly but fantastically so.
If you think our (special) uniforms aren't absolutely gorgeous, you can get out of our conference.
