Let's face it: there's not much to talk about in July. Maryland's AD search is just beginning and won't be hitting full-throttle for another couple of months. Basketball recruiting is thankfully about to kick up, but there's no guarantee that'll lead to an exciting commitment (let's hope it does). And football won't start up until next month.
Luckily, though, there's something to help us pass the time: video games. EA Sports is releasing NCAA Football 11 next week, and they've sponsored a series of posts on college blogs - like us, Gobbler Country, Burnt Orange Nation, From the Rumble Seat, and a bunch more - to help them count down to the release.
These posts are entitled "Where We Come From", and as the name implies, they'll be used to reveal where we come from in terms of our fanhood - favorite teams, how we became a fan, etc. - and will hopefully inspire you guys to share your stories with us. Each day for the next week there's a topic; Dave or I will post our thoughts on it, and then we'll ask you guys to share yours. Simple.
The full schedule is below the jump, so you can get your thinking caps on ahead of time.Today: How I Became A Terp Fan
