The Coach’s Corner – page 81 “We set the Guinness Book of Records on the day when 43,000 fans had tiger paws painted on them. At the Maryland game down here in 1983 we also got into the Guinness Book of Records by releasing 363,000 helium-filled balloons as the team came down the hill before the game. You talk about spectacular sights. That about topped them all.” Frank Howard Head football coach, 1940-69
