One of our readers, DrWoody, shared an awesome picture with us showing the crabs his son caught on the South River last weekend, freshly steams and surrounded by cans of Old Bay and a giant Maryland banner. It is, in a word, awesome.

Challenge Accepted: Testudo Times writers answer Mark Turgeon's call

Earlier this week, Maryland head basketball coach Mark Turgeon took part in the ALS Ice bucket challenge. In doing so, he also challenged all of Terpnation to accept the challenge and participate. On Friday, Pete Volk, Todd Carton and myself accepted the challenge and doused ourselves in ice in the ODK Foundation on the mall of Maryland's campus. If you'd like to participate in the ALS Challenge, we'd love to see your videos.

Looks like the signage on what was formally the Comcast Center has changed. A new xfinity Center sign is now up and it looks like additional ones will be coming where former Comcast ones once were.

Offensive lineman Sean Christie likely out for the year

10
Buoklpgcuaanmdw
Via Roman Stubbs of the Post, it appears lineman Sean Christie will be out for the year after having surgery on a torn knee ligament. Christie would have most likely redshirted anyway, so in that regard it won't really hurt Maryland on the field this year, but it does mean he won't gain valuable experience and reps on the practice squad this season, which obviously would have been helpful heading into 2015.

How Reed's loss will impact Terps in 2014 & beyond

69

Trayvon Reed would have helped provide Maryland with an excellent rim defender and depth in the front court in 2014-2015. But his loss beyond that will likely be minimal for the Terps.
