While Maryland fans are still licking the wounds of another lost football season, they can find solace north of the border.

When the Toronto Argonauts defeated the Calgary Stampeders on Sunday, 35-22, to claim the 100th Grey Cup (the Super Bowl equivalent in the Canadian Football League), it was none other than former Terp Scott Milanovich leading the way. Not on the field, but as the team's head coach.

Millanovich is in his first year as Toronto's head coach after bouncing around the CFL for the last decade at various coaching positions. Ironically, he last played professional football in 2003 as a member of the Stampeders, the very team he beat in the Grey Cup.

Arguablly one of the most proliofcs passers in Maryland history, Millanovich's name is all over the Terrapin record books. Millanovich played quarterback at Martyland from 1992-1995 and still holds numerous Maryland records including career marks for pass attempts (982), completions (650), yards (7,301), and touchdowns (29).
