BTN Adds Maryland Experts to its Talent Roster

Network to dedicate entire day of programming to Maryland Athletics on July 31

CHICAGO – BTN is welcoming the University of Maryland to the conference in a B1G way, adding Maryland experts to its on-air roster and planning a full day of programming dedicated to Maryland Athletics.

Joining BTN’s on-air roster are Scott McBrien, former Maryland quarterback and Shawne Merriman, a former Maryland linebacker, 2005 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and three-time NFL Pro Bowl selection.  McBrien will serve as a game analyst and Merriman will be a studio analyst.

Returning to BTN as a studio analyst is Gary Williams, coach of the 2002 NCAA champion basketball team and 2014 College Basketball Hall of Fame inductee.  New to the team are Dan Bonner, longtime ACC announcer, and Drew Nicholas, a member of the 2002 National Champion Terrapin basketball team.  Nicholas will be studio analysts while Bonner will be a game analyst. Additionally, former Maryland basketball player Christy Winters-Scott will serve as both a studio and game analyst for women’s basketball.

New play-by-play announcers will include Joe Beninati, the voice of the Washington Capitals (football, lacrosse); Dave Johnson, voice of the Washington Wizards and DC United (soccer); and Frank Hanrahan, voice of the Washington Mystics and morning anchor on WNEW Radio (football sideline, women’s basketball ).

BTN will televise at least 40 football games this fall, including Maryland versus 2013 Big Ten Champion and Rose Bowl victor Michigan State at Byrd Stadium on Nov. 15, as well as James Madison at Maryland on Aug. 30 and West Virginia at Maryland on Sept. 13. Television arrangements for Maryland’s remaining games will be announced six to 12 days in advance.

“Maryland Day” on BTN will be Thursday, July 31, and will feature some of the most memorable games in Terrapin history.

At 10 AM ET, the network will air The Big Ten Welcomes Maryland, a 60-minute show hosted by BTN’s Dave Revsine. Revsine will be joined in studio by Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, while BTN football analyst Gerry DiNardo discusses the history and future of Maryland football and BTN basketball analyst Jim Jackson shares his perspective on Terrapin hoops. Also featured on the show will be interviews with Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson, football coach Randy Edsall, men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon and former basketball standouts Juan Dixon and John Lucas.

ACC commissioner Swofford: “We wish Maryland well”

Posted on 21 July 2014 by WNST Staff

ACC Commissioner John Swofford was asked about the league’s ongoing litigation with the University of Maryland Sunday at the league’s football kickoff media event. The following is a transcription of the interaction, courtesy of TheACC.com…

Q. July 10th was the coordinating day and deadline for Maryland and the ACC to meet with the mediator. Was that deadline met, and
what can you tell us about where that process stands?

JOHN SWOFFORD: David, I’m really not at liberty to respond to your specific question. We generally will not be commenting on that case. It’s still in process, and what I’ve said before is that we wish Maryland well. They were a quality member
of this league for 60 years, and our league feels that it has a responsibility to the Atlantic Coast Conference member institutions to live by our constitution and bylaws as they leave the league. And I’ll leave it at that.

Maryland WR Diggs named to Walter Champ Player of the Year Watch List

Posted on 18 July 2014 by WNST Staff

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs has been named to the 2014 Walter Camp Award Watch List, given to college football’s player of the year, the Walter Camp Foundation announced Friday.

Diggs is one of 50 players and one of only eight wide receivers to be named to the watch list for the nation’s fourth-oldest individual college football accolade.

In addition to the Walter Camp Award Watch List, Diggs has been named to three others during the preseason: the Biletnikoff Award Watch List, the Maxwell Award Watch List and Paul Hornung Award Watch List.

The Gaithersburg, Md., native finished second on the team in receptions and receiving yards last season despite missing the last five games with a leg injury. In seven games, Diggs had 34 receptions for 587 yards and three touchdowns and averaged 83.9 yards receiving per game.

Diggs enters the 2014 season averaging 156.0 career all-purpose yards per game, which is the second-most nationally among returning FBS players.

The watch list will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists in mid-November. The 2014 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, which is voted on by the 125 NCAA Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors, will be announced live on ESPN SportsCenter on Thursday, Dec. 11.  The winner will then receive his trophy at the Foundation’s annual national awards banquet onJan. 17, 2015, at the Yale University Commons in New Haven.

For more information on the award and to see the complete watch list, visit waltercamp.org.
