Terps jump to No. 22 in national AP Top 25 poll

Terps jump to No. 22 in national AP Top 25 poll

Maryland basketball keeps moving on up.

After landing the last spot in the AP’s Top 25 last week, the Big Ten-leading Terps (17-2 overall, 5-1 Big Ten) continue their climb in the ranks, now sitting at No. 22 as of Monday. However, despite the conference standings, they're still behind No. 15 Wisconsin (16-3, 5-1) and No. 20 Purdue (16-4, 5-2).

Heading into Tuesday’s home matchup against Rutgers, Maryland is riding a four-game win streak with its last loss on Jan. 1 against Nebraska (9-10, 3-4).

Since cracking the Top 25, the Terps played one game last week — an 84-76 win over Iowa (11-9, 3-4) on the road with junior guard Melo Trimble leading the way with 20 points.

Freshman forward Justin Jackson also made waves last week, netting 12 points and a team-high nine rebounds, earning him the Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week honor, the conference announced Monday.

Maryland takes on the Scarlet Knights (12-8, 1-6) on Tuesday at the XFINITY Center at 7 p.m.

The Redskins newest coach has a rap video in his honor

The Redskins newest coach has a rap video in his honor

On Monday morning, the Redskins made several new coaching hires official, including Jim Tomsula as the new defensive line coach.

Tomsula was out of football in 2016 after serving as the 49ers head coach for the 2015 season in which the team finished 5-11.

Despite struggling as a head coach, Tomsula gained an odd, if not heavy cult following. It made little sense considering he has the look and demeanor of someone who was put on this earth to coach football and coach football only. But through the glories of the internet came this:

The Jimmy Tomsula rap song.

It's just a demo, and I suppose the full version could be out there somewhere since this song is over a year old. But there's something hypnotizing about 60 consecutive seconds of "Open up my shirt like im Jimmy Tom-Sula."

How long before we begin hearing this song at FedEx Field on Sundays?
