College Football Matchup Has Redskins Fired Up

Last night’s ACC matchup between the Maryland Terrapins (Terps) and Miami Hurricanes (Canes) had the locker room buzzing at Redskins Park, and players fired up on Twitter.

Before the game, former Terps cornerback Kevin Barnes gave a preview before he headed to College Park to watch the game.

“It’s No. 1 Terps all the way, I wouldn’t go against them any day,” he said with a confident smile.  “We’ve got a few players out also, but I think we’re gonna pull ahead.”

Altogether in the locker room, there were six alums with a vested interest, two Terps and four Canes.  In light of the NCAA allegations and suspensions on Miami, there weren’t many players willing to lay down a friendly wager, but Barnes guaranteed, “If it gets ugly, I’m pretty sure there will be some trash talking.”

The Terps ended up fending off a late charge by Miami, securing a respectable 32-24 victory.  But the bigger story in the game was the new Under Armour uniforms unveiled by Maryland:

I’m not even from Maryland, but I feel ridiculous state pride right now.

Redskins players had mixed reactions watching at home.

There was the unsure:

It seems like uniforms might be moving in this direction across the board.  What’s your take?

    Turtle shell helmet was a bit much. I liked the game unis though! Definitely a different take. Sometimes flamboyant is good.

    Also, what monkeyhouse said. When was the last time anyone was actually talking about maryland football?! Now Danny O’Brien will be on more pro scouts radar.
