Well isn’t this just a match made in heaven. Looks like the Terps’ postseason will play out on the hallowed blue fields of the Humanitarian Bowl, and neither side could be any less excited.
Tampa was the Dream Girl.
Even as the news was announced, Maryland fans began turning up their noses at Boise, while the Idaho Statesman fired back that the Terps have no sizzle. I agree, man. After all, this is Boise, son! Some mediocre East Coast school just isn’t going to cut it for them in the sizzle department. Maryland may have a little sizzle, but Idaho needs some Blue Field type sizzle! It’s a whole nuther level!
What Idaho really wanted was Ball State love, but when Ball State flaked out and told them to talk to the hand, it drove Boise into the arms of the handsome but odd-smelling Terps, who still pathetically hold out hope that that cute girl from Charlotte is going to call back.
Charlotte was the safety girl.
So now, here we are. Two oddballs nobody wanted, finding each other in Boise. Some might call it fate. Don’t you think, deep down, perhaps we both knew we’d find each other here? So let’s just get this over with, shall we?
I just hope everyone can get drunk enough to stomach the experience. Sometimes, that’s all you can hope for.
Come on in, Maryland. We’re so very proud to have you.
