Attendance at Byrd Stadium on Saturday for Maryland football’s 28-17 loss to Boston College was a season-low 29,945 fans. That’s paid attendance, not the actual number of lunatics who braved slushy conditions -- weather that would make postal carriers rethink their occupation -- to watch the Terps lose to the then-one-win Eagles.
Asked about the turnout, Maryland coach Randy Edsall called out the fans -- and name-checked the Orioles.
“I think whenever you support a team, or you have a team that you like, you support them regardless,” Edsall said on Tuesday, according to Jakob Engelke of Inside MD Sports. “There’s only seven games a year [at home] that you can get out and see. If you’re going to be a fan, be a fan and be out there all the time.”
