About

Turtle Soup is a blog and forum developed for Terrapin fans all over the world to commiserate about the successes and failings of our beloved Terps.

  • Jeremy Gold: I was born in Baltimore, MD and I have two degrees from the University of Maryland. A BS in Finance and an MBA. My father and sister graduated from Maryland as did 90% of the significant friends in my life. It’s safe to say that being a Terp is in my blood. My career has taken me to Chicago where I currently reside. I still catch most of the Terp games although you will see me occasionally gripe about not being able to get the game in Big Ten country. I started Turtle Soup in 2004. I had just graduated with my MBA and was in the process of starting my career anew. While searching for a Terps blog or message board, I was unable to find one that didn’t charge a fee. So, I started one. Originally called “Herman Veal Chops” (named after a former Terp with a bit of a checkered past), Evan Brunell and the good folks at MVN found me and recruited me as a staff writer which continued until August 30, 2008 where Turtle Soup struck out on our own due to MVN closing its college sports coverage. I enjoy writing about my beloved Terps, but I am not a monolith. I also cheer for the Ravens, Orioles and Wizards. As for my day job, I work in online media for Advertising.com.
  • Gregg Kanner: I am a sports producer for WJBK-TV in Detroit, Michigan, but was born and raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland. I’m a huge fan of all D.C. teams and graduated from the University of Maryland in 1997. I watch all the local D.C. teams play thanks to satellite receivers at work and the NBA and NHL packages at home. I watch Comcast Sportsnet Midatlantic nearly every day. I’m up on the teams!

  1. I hope all is well.

    We wanted to let you guys know that today we’re running a solid interview with former Terp Steve Blake on the front page of hoopstvonline.com.

    He had some great things to say about GW and a couple comments on the off season turmoil at Maryland.

    Thought your readers might be interested in checking it out.

    Thanks

  2. Hey guys, my name is Michael Rubin and I am 28 years old and a P.E Teacher in Eldersburg, Maryland. I am a huge Terps fan and have been my whole life. As a matter of fact, due to my love for the Terps, I have been a die-hard fan of the Cincinnati Bengals since 1988. Boomer led me to a few happy years but since then it has been 20 years of anguish and frustration. I have created a website called Recruiting Scoop (www.recruitingscoop.com) in which I will provide up-to-date information on all the recruiting happenings. I will cover the Terps recruits in football, men’s and women’s basketball as well as recruits from Maryland who are looking elsewhere. I was wondering if you guys would check out my website and if you like it, put it in your blog roll and of course I would do the same for your site. I appreciate you taking the time to check it out.

  3. I think Jin Soo Kim is the satr of the offense. If Gary would get his head out of his arse and stop playing Hayes, he would see the Kim is the best way to go for this Terps offense.

  4. Gregg,

    I didn’t realize you were in the Detroit area. I am a Md grad living in Royal Oak. I thought I was the only Terp fan in Michigan. I need to get a different tv package because I have to watch most of the games on ESPN360 (which blows). I used to be able to get all the games a few years ago when the Terps were still nationally relevant.
    By the way, how shitty is the weather here?!

  5. Good afternoon,
    This is Barrett from PressBox, a sports media company. I wanted to pass along two articles we recently published about the Maryland Terrapins — a feature about Jordan Williams and a story about student-athletes using scooters on campus. We cover the Terps all year long, so you and your readers can check our Web site for more information about their teams. Enjoy the links below and please feel free to share them with anyone else you think might be interested in them.
