I've taken thousands of phone calls during my career as a radio host. I know better than to think the opinion of any one caller reflects a consensus among local sports fans.
But still, a call I received on local radio station 105.7 The Fan this weekend stands out. The caller was discussing Maryland's 51-41 win against Texas Sept. 2 and said (and I'm paraphrasing), "You know what I really learned yesterday? Just how bad Texas is!"
I don't believe that sentiment reflects the broader opinion held by Maryland fans. My own social media timelines and text inbox have been filled with either casual or hardcore Maryland fans who have offered far greater acclaim for the Terps' victory.
