The Maryland Terrapins, most commonly referred to as the Terps, represent the University of Maryland, College Park in NCAA sports. The University of Maryland is an NCAA Division I-A school that belongs to the Atlantic Coast Conference and currently sponsors 27 varsity sports. Their mascot is Testudo the Turtle, who was born in 1932, when Dr. Curley Byrd suggested that the school's mascot should be the diamondback terrapin.

History

The University of Maryland, College Park was established in 1856, but joined the ACC in 1953. Between 1921 and 1953, the Terps were part of the Southern Conference, and seceded with six other SoCon schools to form the ACC. The Southern Conference (or SoCon) is a college athletic conference affiliated with the NCAAs Division I. SoCon football teams compete in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision (formerly known as I-AA). ...


The school's sports teams are called the Terrapins, and the mascot of the University is a diamondback terrapin named Testudo, which is Latin for "a shed wheeled up to a wall used by the ancient Romans to protect an attacking force". For years the school colors were black and gold. After World War I, new coach Clark Shaughnessy came to Maryland from Stanford University and brought a supply of that school's uniforms with him. Combining those colors with the old black and gold, the university's official colors were amended to match those that appear on the Maryland State Flag: black, gold, red, and white, though red and white are now the primary colors. Black and gold are almost exclusively used as accent colors and during academic processions at commencement ceremonies.


Traditions

The University of Maryland has a number of traditions associated with the school's athletics programs. Traditionally, Maryland athletics have put the emphasis on fair play and competition over the outcome of a particular contest.


Songs & Chants

Victory Song The Maryland Victory Song was written in 1928 by Thornton W. Allen, a student at the university. It is played frequently during Terp Basketball and Football games. During Football games, it is played after every touchdown the Terps score, regardless of whether the team is winning or losing, celebrating the immediate victory of accomplishment. Ironically, the "Victory" song is played even after defeat. The lyrics are as follows:


Maryland we're all behind you,
Raise high the black and gold.
For there is nothing half so glorious,
As to see our team victorious.
We've got the team boys,
We've got the steam boys,
So keep on fighting, don't give in!
M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D
Maryland will win


During the M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D section of the victory song, Terrapins fans show their clenched fists, and alternate pumping them in the air, beginning with their right fist on the "M" and alternating between left and right with each letter of the MARYLAND. The motion resembles someone climbing a ladder.


Alma Mater & Fight Song Other official school songs include the school's Alma Mater and Fight Song. Each of these are played at every home football game during the pregame festivities. The theme song to the 1980s cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been adopted as an unofficial school song. Fans generally shout the "Turtle Power" and "Heroes in a half-shell" lyrics in the chorus. In basketball competitions, when Maryland is all but assured of a win, an impromptu version of Steam's "Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him) Goodbye" is performed to wish the competitor a farewell and good luck in future games. This may be accompanied by a rousing chant of "o-ver-ra-ted", if in fact the quality of the visiting team's play is not up to the standards of their current ranking. The song is also sung to call attention to players on the other team who foul out of the game. TMNT redirects here. ...


"Hey, You Suck!" A popular saying among the students at Maryland, and one that has created much embarrassment for the university is a simple "Hey, You Suck!" directed at opponents. Students have incorporated the phrase into Gary Glitter's popular sports anthem "Rock and Roll Part Two" (often referred to as the "Hey Song"), leading the school to cease playing the song. They have also incorporated it into the traditional "Na-na-na Na Hey Hey Goodbye" song uttered by sports fans following a foul-out of an opposing basketball player. Currently at basketball games immediately prior to tipoff, and at football games following a Terrapins touchdown, the student section begins performing an impromptu a cappella version of "Rock and Roll Part Two", as the band was banned from playing the song. Paul Francis Gadd aka Gary Glitter (born May 8, 1944) is a platinum selling English rock and pop singer and songwriter who had a string of chart successes with a collection of 1970s glam rock hits including Rock and Roll parts 1 & 2, I Love You Love Me Love, I... Rock and Roll, also known as The Hey Song, is a song performed by British glam rocker Gary Glitter that was released in 1972 as a single and on the album Glitter. ... This article is about the vocal technique. ...


Football

Key Plays At football games, Terp fans also shake their keys in addition to the newspapers to signify urgency ("Key" Plays). This is usually done at the direction of the Student Section unofficial Lead Motivator, "Special K." This has been done by other groups of fans throughout the country


Move those Chains During a football contest, when the Terps achieve a first down, the students advise the sideline chain crew to "move the chains" by hollering and pointing toward the first down.


Basketball

At the beginning of each men's basketball game, Maryland Coach Gary Williams pumps his fist to signify a good game. Gary B. Williams (born March 4, 1945 in Collingswood, New Jersey, United States) is the current head coach of the University of Marylands Mens basketball team. ...


Midnight Madness Midnight Madness was originally started by Maryland Head Coach Lefty Driesell in 1970. Midnight Madness is held at the earliest time the Men's Basketball Team can practice, which used to be midnight on the first day of practice. Students would attend the practice and over the years it has evolved into a circus-like atmosphere, including light shows, magic shows, the mascot trampoline challenge, skits, food, beverage, and other fanfare. Charles Lefty Driesell (born December 25, 1931) is a retired college basketball coach. ...


Recently, Maryland and some other schools have moved the start of Midnight Madness to earlier in the day - generally around 7 o'clock - with permission of the NCAA, of course. This is to encourage more families and fans who aren't even students to attend the event. As a result of this change, Midnight Madness has been rebranded as "Maryland Madness".


Free Throw Wave Students hold their arms above their heads when players are shooting free throws during a basketball contest. When the home team is shooting a free throw, and successfully completes the task, the students will drop their arms to their side, in addition to uttering a "whoomp" sound.


Newspaper Shaking Maryland students attempt to read the newspaper as the opposing team is being introduced. They shake the paper as they read. When the opposing team's introductions are finished, the students crumple up the paper into a ball and throw it into the air. Magazines may also be substituted.


Also while the students are attempting to read their newspapers, it is a common practice for them to yell "sucks!" after each name of the opposing team and coaching staff is read, to voice their displeasure of an uncomfortable presence in the area.


For example: "(PA announcer) 'The head coach of the Blue Devils, Mike Krzyzewski.' (Students will articulate) 'Sucks!'" It is timed such that it is heard continuously.


Other traditions

Beanies Between the years of 1920 - 1960, freshman students were mandated to wear beanies all over campus, including sporting events. These were known as "rat caps" for guys and "rabbit caps" for gals. A few students keep this tradition alive even today.


The Wave During times of extreme excitement during a sporting event, the fans will conduct a human "wave" that engulfs the stadium. The wave involves fans standing up in tandem in a particular section. As that section starts to sit down, the adjoining section begins to rise, simulating a water-wave. This action continues across the stadium as the frenzy rises. A significant amount of hollaring accompanies the wave.


The Crew The Crew is an exceptionally dedicated group of Men's Soccer fans. They generally sit behind the goal the opposing team is defending and berate the opposing goalie, referring to him by formal (given) name. Members of the Crew often travel to away games to continue to support their Terps. The Crew also organize activities to join the soccer environment.


Rivalries

While the Terps do not have a generally recognized school rival overall, they do share a select history both within the ACC and beyond the conference.


Duke - Basketball

The Maryland-Duke rivalry in men's basketball has taken on interest in recent years. Some trace the origins of the rivalry to a game played at Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 9, 2000, in which Maryland, led by Juan Dixon's 31 points, upset then second-ranked Duke, ending the Blue Devils' streaks of 31 consecutive ACC victories and 46 consecutive home victories. The two teams would go on to meet in the finals of the ACC tournament, where Duke would prevail, taking two out of three meetings that season.

The two teams entered the 2001-02 season among the national championship favorites. They met twice during the regular season: a 21-point Duke victory in Durham, and a 14-point Maryland victory in top-ranked Duke's final visit to Cole Field House. The College Park matchup is noted for a memorable play before halftime, as Jason Williams, attempting to set up Duke's last shot, turned his eyes towards Coach K for instruction. As he did, Steve Blake stole the ball from him and scored on a lay-up, giving Maryland an eight-point lead and momentum. In the NCAA's, Duke would be upset in the Sweet Sixteen by fifth-seeded Indiana; Maryland would go on to win the title, defeating that very same Indiana team in the championship game.

On January 18, 2003, Duke, relying heavily on a highly-touted freshman class, came to the newly-opened Comcast Center undefeated and top-ranked. Maryland, which was able to start five seniors, overcame a halftime deficit and won by 15 in a manner reminiscient of the teams' previous meeting. Duke would go on to win the rematch a month later, and the following season, took the regular-season series. The home game of the series was notorious for ESPN microphones picking up the Terps student section chanting "Fuck you, JJ!" at Blue Devil point guard JJ Redick as he attempted two late free throws, which caused the ACC to fine Maryland an undisclosed sum of money and reprimand the administration, asking them to better control their students. is the 18th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Maryland ended the 2003-04 regular season with a 7-9 conference record. With wins against Wisconsin, top-ranked Florida, and North Carolina, Maryland entered the ACC tournament as a probable team to make the NCAAs. Sixth-seeded Maryland upset third-seeded Wake Forest and second-seeded North Carolina State to advance to final game against top-seeded Duke. Maryland led for much of the first half, while Duke made a run in the second, leading by 12 with less than five minutes left in regulation. Maryland, buoyed by the play of John Gilchrist, made a series of plays down the stretch to tie the game at 77 at the end of regulation. With many on Duke's team, including Shelden Williams, in foul trouble or disqualified, Maryland went on to outscore Duke 18-10 in overtime, resulting in a 95-87 victory and the school's first ACC tournament title in 20 years.

In the 2004-05 season, Maryland swept the Blue Devils, becoming the first conference team to do so since Wake Forest did nearly a decade earlier. They also became the first school to win three straight games against Duke since Michigan accomplished the feat in 1995, 1996, and 1997. The victories over Duke were negated, however, by losses to supposedly weaker conference foes like Miami, North Carolina State, and Clemson, who defeated the Terrapins three times during the season. Maryland was relegated to the NIT; Duke won the conference tournament, earned a one-seed, and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen for the eighth consecutive year.

Duke was a national championship favorite during the 2005-06 season, and was able to sweep a Maryland team rife with internal issues and underachieving players. Maryland, despite an 8-8 record, went back to the NIT and lost in the first round; Duke earned another conference title, another one-seed, and another trip to the Sweet Sixteen.


As of March 2007, Duke holds a 101-60 lead in the all-time series. Since the 1999-2000 season, however, Duke holds an 11-9 advantage. Maryland won both of its games against Duke in 2007, completing its second sweep of Duke in 3 years. The game is the source of frenzied fan interest in College Park and has drawn large television audiences.


Because of the intense nature of the rivalry in Men's Basketball, dislike between the schools has spilled over to other sports, notably men's soccer and women's basketball.


Penn State - Football

The series between the Terrapins and Nittany Lions has been dominated by Penn State University. The lone Maryland win in the modern era came in 1961. 1984 the Terps lost freshman safety Anthony Brown of Portsmouth, Va. following a nightclub shooting incident prior to a Penn State game. In recent years, Penn State has drawn the ire of Maryland fans by successfully recruiting some greater Washington, D.C., area players, an area that had previously been successful for Maryland. Most notably, Forestville, Maryland high school football standout Antonio Logan-El, after initially giving a verbal commitment to the Terrapins, instead chose the Lions over Maryland on live television at the ESPN Zone in Baltimore, MD in 2006. Logan-El has since transferred to Towson University. The schools met nearly every year between 1960 and 1993 with Penn State winning 70-7 in the final installment of the series. The teams are not scheduled to meet anytime through 2013. The Pennsylvania State University The Pennsylvania State University (commonly known as Penn State) is a state-related land-grant university in Pennsylvania, with over 80,000 students at 24 campuses throughout the state. ...


Virginia - Football

The Terrapins and Cavaliers have met in football since 1913, but have met annually since 1957 although Virginia joined the Atlantic Coast Conference in 1954. The series has included a stretch from 1969 through 1987 when the Terps defeated the Cavaliers, including a conference championship clinching win in 1984 at Charlottesville. Virginia would turn the tables on the Terps from 1988 through 2000, with the exception of Maryland winning in 1990 in Charlottesville and 1991 in College Park. The most heartbreaking game in the series for the Terps came in the final game of the 1999 season where the Terps were leading 30-27 with less than 30 seconds remaining in regulation where they gave up a late touchdown to the Cavaliers, thus losing by 4 points, 34-30, even though LaMont Jordan ran for a single-game school record 306 yards, which still stands to this day. That loss by the Terps denied them a possible bowl invitation and a winning season. The Virginia Cavaliers are the athletics teams of the University of Virginia. ...

LaMont Jordan is a National Football League running back, currently playing for the New York Jets. ...


Until Maryland won at Charlottesville in 2006 and Virginia won at College Park in 2007, the recent history of the series had both teams alternating wins at their home field since 2000 (Maryland winning in 2001, 2003 and 2005, Virginia winning in 2000, 2002, and 2004). As of October 2006, Maryland has the lead in the overall series, 41-29-2.


West Virginia - Football

Maryland and West Virginia share a competitive rivalry in football. The series is the longest current continuous non-conference series for either school, the two teams having met each year since 1980. As of September 2007, the series stands at 23-21-2 in favor of West Virginia. When Ralph Friedgen became head coach of the football team in 2001, he reportedly was offered a chance either to continue or discontinue the annual scheduling of the Terps-Mountaineers matchup, and he chose to maintain the games and the budding 21st-century rivalry. After the Terps won four straight against West Virginia from 2001-2004 (including the 2004 Gator Bowl), the Mountaineers have bounced back, winning the last four. Especially disheartening to Maryland fans has been the play of running back Steve Slaton, who joined the Mountainers after having his scholarship to Maryland revoked by Ralph Freidgen. Slaton got his revenge in the 2006 and 2007 meetings, racking up a total of 332 yards and 5 touchdowns. The series will take a brief hiatus in 2008 and 2009 as Maryland begins a home-and-home series with California. The series is rumored to resume in 2010.

Johns Hopkins University and the Terps have a long-standing rivalry in lacrosse. Both teams are located in the state of Maryland, which geographically categorizes JHU as a "regional" rival.

ACC in General

To the students, every school in the ACC is designated a competitive match, considering Maryland has no true rival. Due to the frequency (mostly round-robin format) in which the teams play in a variety of sports, there is some bad blood from individuals toward every other ACC school. As the ACC expansion in 2005 increased the number of teams to 12, this has diluted the ability of Maryland to continue a round robin schedule with most schools.
