Trayvon Reed Is Gone

What..the..hell?

Trayvon Reed's career at Maryland is over before it even begins. He was kicked off the team today. Based on the reports, it is hard to blame anyone but Trayvon for getting kicked off the basketball team.

Apparently, he punched a cop over the theft of $5 worth of candy.  Let that one sink in.  It is inexcusable to steal and it is inexcusable to resist arrest but really PG Police? Really?  You couldn't let the 7 footer leave with a warning? 

He's an 18 year old kid and we all do stupid shit at that age, but this takes the cake.  A kid with so much to lose has nearly thrown it all away.  He'll never play in a Maryland uniform but that doesn't mean his career is over.  Perhaps another school will pick him up after he's completed his punishment over this incident.  Maybe he will play in Europe.  Who knows?  What matters is the Terps are one player short on a roster that was already lean. 

If you need me, I'll be in the corner of my room weeping in the fetal position.

Maryland Terps Make Their First Sweet 16 -- In Baseball

It's hard to believe but the Maryland Terrapins baseball team is on a roll. Up until about 3 years ago, baseball at Maryland was basically a joke.  Historically, Shipley Field only existed as a roadblock for freshman in the Ellicott and Denton quads from getting to class.  Now, baseball is the biggest sensation on campus. Thanks to an impressive [...] Read More »

Richaud Pack Joins, Michal Cekovsky Signs, Charles Mitchell Leaves

Lots of news coming out of College Park.  Charles Mitchell is leaving to be closer to his ailing Grandmother. I wish him the best.  Regardless of the circumstances the optics are bad for Turgeon.  Yes, Mitchell's departure seemingly has nothing to do with Turgeon and is of a personal nature.  Yet, it's another kid who didn't work out. In isolat [...] Read More »

Seth Allen To Transfer. What's Next?

"The night is dark and full of terrors".  So goes the admonition in HBO's Game of Thrones.  It also seems to be an appropriate theme for Mark Turgeon's offseason.  First he jettisons "dead weight" players who had underwhelmed: Faust, Cleare, Peters.  On paper, it looks like some housekeeping.  Apparently, Turgeon neglected to check with his remaini [...] Read More »

The Seth Allen Transfer Rumor Thread

My spider-sense is tingling.  I have a horrible feeling that this is going to turn out to be true.  Nothing is confirmed.  Turgeon is denying it (not surprising) and some players have come forward anonymously and said that Seth Allen has requested his release. this would be a brutal blow for the fans and the coaching staff. [...] Read More »

Women's Final Four: Terps vs Notre Dame

Today's thread is about the Lady Terps quest to slay the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Gary Williams's selection to be inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame.  This is the big one.
