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 »
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 »
"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 »

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.

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 »

Cekovsky is listed as the number #39 prospect in the class. He was rumored to be decided between Louisville and Arizona so this announcement is a major surprise. If you look on YouTube, you [...] Read More »
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. He'll be enshrined with all of the greats. Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, John Wooden, Dean Smith, Gary W [...] Read More »
It's hard to overstate how bitterly disappointing this past basketball season was for Maryland alumni and fans. The team did not make any of the expected gains and wound up far away from any of the goals they set at the beginning of the season. Mark Turgeon is the leader and face of the program. As such, the successes and failures fall on his [...] Read More »
