Let's be honest. Even in the midst of Turtle Trap Week (not to be confused with Trutle Tarp Week), you couldn't care less about watching YouTube clips of Jordan Steffy, Darius Heyward-Bey, and Josh Portis. You already know that Maryland isn't the greatest team in the world. I mean, they lost to Middle Tennessee State last week 24-14!
So who needs advance YouTube clips of their tendencies? Not me. But what Turtle Week does provide is an excuse to show some classic clips of some Teenage Mutant Ninja Terrapins!
OH NO IT'S EXO-SHREDDER KICKING SOME TMNT SHELL! I'll bet he dined on some TURTLE SOUP that night! Hint to Jahvid and Kevin: see the Shredder. Be the Shredder.
But let's give these Teenage Mutant Ninja Terrapins their due. They're effective in limited doses against cannon fodder. Which is actually a pretty good way of describing the rest of the ACC.
This is, for my money, the greatest movie clip of all time. For a number of reasons. Ninja, ninja rap!
Who else even remembered that there was a TMNT 3 made? Not many people, judging by the fact that there is an incredible dearth of other TMNT 3 clips on YouTube.
One can only hope that Maryland Terrapins have a blooper reel as fascinating as this one after this Saturday's game.
But let's be charitable. It's not all fun and games around here, and there are highlights of the Terrapins football team. Such as this promo film:
Or this one of 2007 Terp football:
The Terrapins are known for having a great set of WRs this year. You got Emani Lee-Odai, Danny Oquendo, Isaiah Williams, LaQuan Williams, and Darrius Heyward-Bey.
Here's more on Heyward-Bey.
Heres a rather sick catch by Danny Oquendo:
The coaches name is Ralph Freidgen. He's a big man.
Before his first game:
Here he is dancing after winning the ACC Championship:
Interview after knocking off NC State:
What Maryland Terrapin themed YouTube Thursday would be complete without their theme song? Not this one!
Oh god, that is so good. Brings back great memories. Hopefully, Coach Tedford will teach the team to be ninja teens this weekend! Go Bears!
