PressBox, the Baltimore sports magazine, ran a cover story on Maryland Coach Randy Edsall in its latest issue, focusing on the Terps’ attempts to own the city of Baltimore. Excerpt:

“From my days growing up in southern Pennsylvania, I’ve known that Baltimore is a great football city,” Edsall said. “They’re developing some good football talent up there — talent we can recruit. And Baltimore’s the largest city in the state. To me, it just makes so much sense for us to get more people up there behind us.”

But even though Baltimore is a football town, it’s not necessarily a Terps football town.

As Maryland’s athletic department gears up a pricey marketing and promotions campaign to win the heart of Baltimore fans in time for its move from the Atlantic Coast Conference to the Big Ten on July 1, 2014, it will try to bridge the 33-mile gap that separates Baltimore from College Park.

Which makes sense. Meanwhile, those 33 miles could likely be bridged with the amount of crabs set before Edsall for this photo shoot. The caption says they come from Baltimore’s Costas Inn; to find out more about the Costas Inn, visit Read the rest of the story here.
