Maryland Football: Tribute to The Bobby Ross Era 1982-86 (Revised)

I have revised a video that I had originally posted, but I made a few changes to it and added new music.
This is my small tribute to one of the most successful and memorable eras of Football at the University of Maryland, College Park. Bobby Ross became the head coach at Maryland prior to the 1982 season as the successor to the late Jerry Claiborne, who left Maryland for Kentucky. He completed the second three-peat in school history by winning the ACC from 1983 to 1985 (despite the fact that Clemson, who beat the Terps for the 1982 ACC title, were placed on NCAA probation for 1983 and 1984) matching Claiborne’s three-peat from 1974 to 1976, putting him among some of the successful coaches in school history. In 1986, following and disappointing 5-5-1 season and the after-effects of the untimely death of Len Bias that were affecting the Maryland Athletic Department at the time, Bobby would leave College Park with a record of 39 wins, 19 losses and 1 tie with 3 ACC Championships.
