It’s been a busy week for the University of Maryland, which said goodbye to the ACC with a block party outside of Nationals Park on Monday and officially marked its entrance into the Big Ten with an on-campus celebration — and Big Ten-themed ice cream – the following afternoon.
With the Terps’ first football game as a member of the Big Ten less than two months away, the school also unveiled a sleek 2014 season microsite.
In addition to ticket and schedule information, the site includes a BuzzFeed-style ‘Which Terp Are You?’ quiz. You answer five multiple-choice questions — from your favorite Route 1 restaurant, to your favorite Maryland uniform combination, to your favorite Jolly Rancher flavor — and the algorithm returns the name and photo of a football player on the current roster. (I got running back Brandon Ross; Dan, who likes grape Jolly Ranchers, got linebacker Matt Robinson.)
Photos from the school’s popular #ThinkB1G sunglasses campaign — which included current and former Maryland coaches and players, alumni, local celebrities and fans — are featured on the site. Here’s a sampling from Twitter, beginning with Maryland coaching legend Lefty Driesell rocking the special shades in front of Old Glory. Happy 4th.
