Maryland vs James Madison

This is going to be a year of firsts for Maryland.  It starts today.  Maryland will take the field as a member of the Big Ten for the first time.  The Terps will play James Madison, an opponent they should roll.  That is of little importance because the college football season has started and that is a reason to rejoice.

Maryland is on the upswing.  We've got senior leadership in CJ Brown.  Athletic talent in Stefon Diggs.  The Terps are healthy. No, they won't go the National Championship playoffs.  No, they won't go the Rose Bowl.  Yes, they will have a good season.

This inaugural year in the Big Ten won't be an easy one with games against the likes of Mich St. Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State.  How many of those games can we win?  I believe. I believe that. I believe that we have the talent to beat at least two of those teams.  I think the most likely candidates are Penn State and Michigan but Wisconsin is wildly overrated so who knows?  All I know is that I am going to have more fun watching the Terps take on these opponents than watching them play Wake and NC State.

This is going to be a fun ride.  Go B1G or go home.

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 [...] Read More »

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 »

Moving Day: Faust, Cleare, Peters Transfer

Wow.  Three Terps have announced their intention to transfer from the University today.  Rising senior, Nick Faust, rising junior, Shaquille Cleare, and rising sophomore, Roddy Peters are leaving the program.  I can't recall a day where three players left the program. All three players have been tremendous disappointments. Faust oozes athleticis [...] Read More »
