The incoming freshmen of the Maryland Terrapins basketball team have gotten a heard start on some intense team bonding, as they have all decided to get matching tattoos.

The team ink says "MBK" which stands for my brothers keeper, and guards Melo Trimble and Jared Nickens have already had their tattoos completed, while the three other recruits, Michal Cekovsky, Trayvon Reed, and Dion Wiley, have also signed on.

While their dedication to each other is certainly admirable, many on Twitter were quick to note that five players transferred out of the program last year alone. At least they didn't get Testudo tattoos.
