    Team History
    The Maryland Terrapins football team represents the University of Maryland, College Park in the sport of American football. The Terrapins compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Since 1950, the Terrapins have played their home games at Byrd Stadium in College Park, Maryland. The team's official colors of red, white, black, and gold have been in use in some combination since the 1920s and are taken from the state flag, and the nickname of the "Terrapins" (often abbreviated as "Terps") was adopted in 1933 after a turtle species native to the state. Maryland shares storied rivalries with Virginia and West Virginia.
    The program's achievements have included one NCAA-recognized national championships,[1] nine ACC championships, two Southern Conference championships, eleven consensus All-Americans, several Hall of Fame inductees, and twenty-four bowl game appearances. Maryland possesses the third-most ACC championships with nine, which places them behind Clemson (13) and Florida State (12). Many former Terrapins players and coaches have gone on to careers in professional football including 15 first-round NFL Draft picks.[2]
    The first officially recognized football team was fielded in 1892, and excluding a brief hiatus in 1895, Maryland has competed in college football each season since. Harry C. "Curley" Byrd, a student-athlete at Maryland, became head football coach in 1911 and served in that role for two decades before he became the university president. The Terrapins had consistent on-field success between 1947 and 1955. Maryland then suffered a period of mediocrity, until 1972, when the program again rose to national prominence under coaches Jerry Claiborne and Bobby Ross. The football program underwent another period of lackluster performance beginning in 1986 and lasting until 2001, when Ralph Friedgen was hired as head coach and engineered a first-year turnaround that culminated in a conference championship. In the following years, the Terrapins made regular postseason appearances, but were unable to match the success of Friedgen's first season.

    Maryland Squeaks by the Utah State Fightin Mormons

    Maryland Squeaks by 24 - 17 with most of our offense coming off of FF and INT-TD. Lots of work to do on offense

    Maryland Falls to UCONN 31 - 21

    After throwing 4 INT's, Maryland's QB ate himself into a coma by eating Big Mac's and Supersized French Fries. First drive of game was the hint of what was to come while the CPU rushed 3 Defenders leading to a FF which eventually led to a TD. For whatever reason the CPU depth chart had my best WR 5th string behind a FS. The only people that could catch a damn cold were my TE's and HB's my WR's have hands of brick. Hopefully their Junior year will be better than their Sophomore.
