It's hard to believe something this wonderful got lost in the insanity of Maryland officially joining the Big Ten, but it did, and for that I apologize.
The Big Ten mascots celebrated Maryland joining the league at Nationals Park in Washington. McLouth donned a Michigan helmet and flexed hard alongside the Spartan.
It's hard for mascots to look menacing, but it's also pretty difficult for Nate McLouth to look menacing, so I'm not sure I believe the animous is real. The animous is real between Michigan and Michigan State, as are many rivalries in the Terps' new conference.
They might be a little more fierce than the picture lets on, though.
