B1G 2014 // Welcome to the Smoking Room: Terrapin Edition

There's so much more to Maryland than just seafood and pigskin. Let's explore, shall we?

Good afternoon, OTE. After what has been a very active three-and-a-half days in Comment Land, I hope there is still some interest in entering the Smoking Room, where we can continue our great conversation on all things Maryland.

This week, it's time to talk Terps. Per usual, this is the forum to learn about and discuss University of Maryland sports, culture, and grab bag.

I personally look forward to power rankings of the Top-5 and Bottom-5 calzones at D.P. Dough.
