Given its partnership with sports apparel/clothier Under Armour, the University of Maryland has become the Oregon Ducks of the east coast. They’ve had more looks than Cal Ripken had batting stances. Some look amazing, others look like they belong in a bad comic book.

It’s a shame that the scheduling didn’t work out any better. How great would it have been to play the game at M&T Bank Stadium, close to the place where it all began?
