Just wanted to thank everyone who signed up for the D1scourse Challenge. There will, of course, be weekly updates as well as a prize for the winner this season.
A few stats on the team names among the 50 entries before moving on to other business later in the day:
* Current Maryland football players mentioned: Jordan Steffy, Chris Turner, Josh Portis, Kevin Barnes
* Former Maryland football players mentioned: Scott McBrien, LaMont Jordan, Steve Suter
* Players/coaches from Maryland basketball, past and present, mentioned: Mario Lucas, Bambale Osby
* Past ill-advised marketing campaigns mention: The Vandwagon (and not by me, even if one of my first ever fantasy team names was the Abandoned Vandwagons)
* Team names with some variation of Terp/Terps/Terpz/Terrapins: Nine
* Former college basketball coaches used as team names: One (Barry Hinson).
More coming later on in the day. Just not on the D1scourse Challenge.
