University of Maryland Starts Competitive Eating Team 2

The University of Maryland has the proud distinction of having the nation's first collegiate competitive eating club. Founded by Keith Solomon during his freshman year as a joke, the 30 member club now has a constitution and is officially recognized by the university. From the article: "'The goal is that we get these teams started at other universities so we could compete intercollegiately,' said Solomon, who has not yet cut his teeth in a sanctioned event but says he's particularly skilled at consuming large portions of hamburgers and Jell-o."
