Additional Big Ten Conference Logos
The Maryland Terrapins, commonly referred to as the Terps, consist of 19 men’s and women’s varsity intercollegiate athletic teams that represent the University of Maryland, College Park in National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I competition. Maryland was a founding member of the Southern Conference in 1921, a founding member of the Atlantic Coast Conference in 1952, and is now a member of the Big Ten Conference. The nickname was coined in 1932 by Harry C. “Curley” Byrd, then the school’s football coach and later the school’s president. Previously, Maryland teams were known as the “Old Liners”—a reference to the state’s nickname, “The Old Line State.” However, the school newspaper, The Diamondback, wanted a better nickname. Byrd thought “Terrapins” was a good choice because of the diamondback terrapins endemic to the Chesapeake Bay region. Byrd’s hometown of Crisfield was famous for the number of terrapins along its shores.
