Maryland Minute - 12.07.10 - Terp Fan Support at Military Bowl

There has been a lot said about the Military Bowl - to attend or not attend; why spend $90 on a ticket; why did we get screwed in the selection process? I could go on and on. The main issue is and will continue to be that fans didn't come out in droves to Byrd this year to support this team. And if we don't make it to the ACC title game next year, we better show support at this game or bowls are going to continue to pass us over and the same thing could happen again.

I'm definitely going to try to attend. Heck, maybe we could do a Testudo Times meet-up and tailgate? But if you REALLY want people to attend, DON'T SCHEDULE THIS FREAKING GAME AT 2:30 ON A WEDNESDAY! And why are tickets for this more expensive than most of the other ACC Bowl games?

The argument Maryland needs to make to fans --- but isn't -
Great piece, as always, by Patrick Stevens about why spending $90 for the Military Bowl isn't that big a deal, had you been willing to drive/fly down to FL for a warm-weather bowl.

Bowl system needs to be blown up | |
Great piece by Bob Molinaro of the Virginian-Pilot, talking about how stupid the college bowl system is. Here is his take on MD:

When it comes to one ACC bowl team, I don't know whether to extend congratulations or condolences. On Dec. 29, Maryland plays East Carolina in the Military Bowl at RFK Stadium, just a hop, skip and pistol shot from the Terps' College Park campus. Busing across town to a bowl game is every boy's dream, isn't it?

More on the Baru commitment. For the record, I don't think Bobby Cremins did anything wrong here.
