I was born to two Maryland graduates about 18 years ago, and it was on that day i became a Terps fan. I remember the good times, the Natty in a hotel room in Florida, as the whole family cheered so loud the neighbors had to tell us to quiet down. I remember the Orange bowl for football, along with the ensuing few years of success for the new coach Ralph Friedgen. Then the down years where our teams were led by Joel Statham and Nik Caner-Medley, guys who weren't quite good enough to follow up on such success. This year signaled the end of my high-school days, and it was highlighted by the greatest day of my life, the day i was accepted into Maryland.
Now, although i am also very excited about my education, i can't help but burst from the inside with excitement for the sports games. But as i come in, the only coaches i ever knew for my two favorite sports, Ralph Friedgen and Gary, depart, and the new era of coaches, Edsall and Turgeon arrive. These coaches will define the peak of my Maryland fandom, and i for one and extremely excited for the future. I will be at every game i can possibly attend, study my ass off, and try to be as proud a Terp as i can be. I absolutely love this site, and have been an almost daily visitor for around a year now. I just thought i should share my excitement because i simply can't contain it. I'm more than happy to be a part of this community and will be a part of it for the next 4 years. Go Terps! Truly a dream come true for me
