Photos: Maryland's Basketball Team Has A Live Turtle At Its Media Day

Expectations are high in College Park, Md. Maryland's men's basketball team is starting the season ranked No. 3 in the USA TODAY Coaches' Poll - the Terrapins' highest initial ranking since 2001-02, when it won the national title - as Mark Turgeon has a squad with clear national championship potential. 

So, there's some pressure surrounding Melo Trimble and the Big Ten favorite Terps. 

The mood is light at Maryland's media day this afternoon, though. There's a live turtle on the court; it's taken a picture with Trimble and Juan Dixon, among others.

The Terps will be feared this season, no doubt.
