Maryland DE Roman Braglio tells how he committed
Greg Gattuso is awesome. Significantly awesomer than even Sollazzo.

I just didn't know how to say it. I walked out and asked my father, "How do I say it?" He said, "What do you mean, how do you say it? Walk back in there and say you want to be a Terp." Coach Gattuso was walking out and he was like, "Roman, what's wrong?" I said, "Nothing, Coach. I want to be a Terp." He threw me over his shoulder and ran into Coach Edsall's office like, "We got him. We got him."

I will now never be able to get the image of a giddy Greg Gattuso carrying someone 6-4 and 260 over his shoulder into Randy Edsall's office. -BB
