Maryland Terrapins

1.We Burn Couches Better Than You. We Burn Couches....YES we do! Maryland has a history of causing town riots up and down Route 1 in College Park after meaningful victories (and losses). The most famous was in 2002, with 18 arrests, $10,000 worth of damage and eight trips to the hospital after the National Championship.

2. I'm Mike Jones! Because of his shared name with Rapper Mike Jones, Terrapins senior guard Mike Jones gets a giant "Who?!" yelled when his name is announced after a made basket. Jones also set the Maryland record for 3-pointers made in a game early this season with nine.


3. The Italian ACC. Maryland hoops alum, and gun aficionado Lonny Baxter has made it to Italy after serving a two-month prison sentence. He is currently averaging seven points and four rebounds for the Italian League's Mens Sana Basketball. The 2004 League Champions are frequently referred to as Montepaschi Siena (due to the sponsorship from a Siena bank), and the team starts three former ACC standouts in Baxter, Terrell McIntyre and 2001 ACC Player of the Year Joseph Forte. — Awful Announcing
