Watch Testudo fail at whack-a-mole at halftime of a Maryland women’s soccer game

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

At halftime of Maryland women’s soccer’s double-overtime 1-0 win over Richmond, the Terps brought out some interesting entertainment.

Testudo took place in a live-action game of whack-a-mole, and the human moles came out victorious.

It appears everyone learned from Rickon Stark’s failures and zig-zagged their way to safety. (Also, if you wanted a spoiler alert for that, just wait until you catch up.) It can’t be easy running around it that costume, and by the end Testudo tries to throw the hammer to get anybody and still comes up short.

Testudo might need ask some members of the 4-0-1 women’s soccer team for pointers on how to take a better angle to the target. However, I hear DJ Durkin is recruiting some of the night’s winners to add even more depth behind his “Presidential Backfield.”

Randy Edsall got his first win as the head coach of UConn, and it’s been a while since the team had to break out the victory formation. The Huskies took a couple warmups in the waning minutes of their 27-20 win over Holy Cross of the FCS.

It’s nice to see the Huskies were able to pull out the win. They weren’t looking so hot after the first half.
