Terrapin Crime and Punishment?

A double-item for the folks in College Park, today. I wish it was good news. It’s not.

The University of Maryland has many notable alumni, ranging from Jim Henson through Nobel Laureates. In the sports side of things, there are pro athletes like Vernon Davis and Darius Heyward-Bey; potentially even more well-known as a proud Terp is ESPN anchor Scott Van Pelt. Right now, though, SVP isn’t that psyched about the lack of support the students in College Park have shown for a basketball team that still has a (slim) chance of making the tournament. He took his complaint to ESPN 980 after a Twitter rant earlier this week, commenting that he understands that students have classes, but “part of the college experience is living a little bit, outside I have to do my econ homework.”

The second part is the so-called, “punishment,” although it isn’t even close to related to the crime at hand. Testudo Times pointed out what could very well be new football uniforms for the Terrapins this fall. Yikes:

  1. Apparently MD students are all closet Duke fans, since thats the only team they actually come out to see.
