COLLEGE PARK  -  This is not how Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon envisioned the Terps would enter the Big Ten Conference. Coming off a disappointing 17-15 season and having lost half his scholarship players in a tumultuous four-week stretch this spring, Turgeon begins his fourth year at Maryland under increased scrutiny and facing more pressure than at any other point in his coaching career. Despite speculation that he finds himself on the proverbial hot seat for the first time in his 17 seasons as a Division I head coach, Turgeon said that what the Terps lost in experience with the departures of five transfers, they more than make up for in cohesiveness.

After three years of pain, Maryland football fans just wanted a chance to party in the waning days of a season. So smiles abounded in Annapolis on Friday as Terps supporters gathered to celebrate the program's first bowl appearance since 2010. The Military Bowl might be far from the pinnacle of college football. And plenty of Maryland fans might retain misgivings about third-year coach Randy Edsall. But given the negativity that surrounded the program just a few months ago, as injuries threatened to derail another season, the late-December game against Marshall struck many as a perfectly fine holiday gift.

At the office of the Terrapin Club, the athletic booster organization of the University of Maryland, College Park, the fax machine started humming Monday morning. It hasn't stopped since. "People were lined up outside the door when we got here on Monday," said Andrew Plenn, the club's executive director. "I haven't seen anything like it in my 10 years." These weren't just people buying tickets to the Final Four; they were also people joining the Terrapin Club or upgrading memberships to ensure access to tickets.

Andy Geiger, the University of Maryland's athletic director, said yesterday that one answer to his department's multimillion-dollar deficit may be to focus on greatly expanding membership in the Terrapin Club.Geiger said the sports booster organization needs to more than triple its rolls, from its current 3,200 members to more than 10,000."We've got to go out and ask," Geiger said, referring to the ways that new members could be recruited.

As a former student athlete at the University of Maryland and current member of the Terrapin Club, I was shocked and angered by the University's move from the ACC to the Big Ten ("UM to leave ACC for Big Ten in '14," Nov. 20). Then I saw today's paper, revealing that of all the Big Ten schools, Maryland has the smallest endowment fund. And how much time Maryland coaches have to spend on fundraising at the expense of coaching. So while it's easy to blame the administration, it sounds like we Marylanders and Terrapin alumni haven't done a great job at supporting our university, and can blame ourselves as well.

About 600 Terrapin basketball season ticket holders were told this week that they would probably have to donate more - in some cases hundreds of dollars more - to the University of Maryland's athletic program by Tuesday or risk not having a seat at the arena that will open in the fall. "I love basketball. I'm from Indiana. But it strikes me as something is not quite right with this," Alan Armstrong of Columbia said. Armstrong has purchased season tickets for nine years and donated at least $125 annually to the Terrapin Club booster group for many of those years.

COLLEGE PARK - There are too many bowl scenarios to determine for certain where Maryland will end up, but the school seems to have a willing suitor in the Military Bowl, which calls the Terps "a logical choice. " Another possibility for Maryland: the AdvoCare V100 Bowl, formerly the Independence Bowl. The bowl - to be played in Shreveport, La., on Dec. 31 - sent a scout to College Park for Maryland's game against Syracuse on Nov. 9. It is planning to send a representative to Saturday's Terps home game against Boston College to scout both teams, bowl spokesman Stefan Nolet said.

It's not hard to determine what consistently sells tickets to University of Maryland sporting events: winning teams. But speakers at a sparsely-attended Maryland forum said Monday that the university also needs to better address fans' concerns by creating more football tailgating options around Byrd Stadium, making games more family-friendly, curbing profanity at Comcast Center basketball games and continuing to push Maryland's "brand" in the region....

Kevin Anderson's Maryland athletic director contract is for five years at $401,015 annually, but it contains a provision that could potentially keep him at the university much longer, according to a copy of the document obtained Tuesday. The contract says the five-year term shall be automatically extended each Sept. 30 by one year unless either party -- Anderson or Maryland -- "informs the other in writing that ... it does not want to extend this contract for an additional year. " In addition to the base salary, the contract offers up to $50,000 collectively in incentives for athletes' graduation rates and academic achievements, athletic fundraising, and team success.

Seven years of loyalty mean little at Maryland In 1995, being a fan of college basketball, I decided to try to buy season tickets for Maryland basketball. I went to College Park, where I was informed that I would have to join the Terrapin Club to apply for season tickets. I did so, even though I am a graduate of Loyola College in Baltimore. I paid the membership cost, which I recall was about $50. In future years, it would increase and is now $125 annually. This membership puts me on the mailing list for offers to buy season tickets to football, lacrosse and women's basketball games, as well as Hall of Fame dinners and the like at College Park.

Partisanship is the hallmark of Glendening's rule The Sun's article "Glendening relishes role outside Md." (Sept. 16) noted that Gov. Parris N. Glendening plans to devote his last year in office to campaigning for Democrats. That's nothing new. For the past seven years, Mr. Glendening has acted more like governor of the Democratic Party than governor of Maryland. His budgets have overwhelmingly favored Democratic constituencies. He has appointed an overwhelmingly Democratic judiciary and used "Smart Growth" to attack jurisdictions such as Carroll County that vote Republican.
