After 60 some years as a charter member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the University of Maryland is now in the Big Ten which is a disturbance in the lives of long-time fans such as myself.
For some time, I've made it and point to attend at least one football game a season, but this year I waited too long. Early in the season I could have basked in the sun very comfortably as opposed to shivering in a cold November evening which is what I did last night.
Not surprisingly, my team lost to Michigan State. I've always heard that those Midwestern teams "travel well", that is, many of the fans attend away games. I've attended games in Byrd Stadium for half a century and never before have I seen so many fans from the visiting school.
