Maryland football supporters have raised about $46,000 so the Terps can fly round trip to games at Wake Forest and North Carolina State instead of taking the bus one way.
“It’s nice knowing there is the possibility of making a difference,” said Larry Grabenstein, chairman of the Maryland Gridiron Network, a booster group that raises money for special football projects. “Many universities are experiencing these types of fiscal pressures for the first time in a while, and it’s because of the nature of the recession.”
Shout out to the Maryland Gridiron Network for coming through in the clutch. Now, if they could only work to keep All-Americans in state to play for the Terps, they would be one step closer to being like other power conferences who make money with bowl games, tournament appearances, big-time sponsorships, etc.
