Maryland vs Virginia, The Quest For Mediocrity

The headline says it all I think.  The Terps have limped through the ACC Season and are surely poised to be left out of the NCAA yet again. The only April excitement for us is whether or not five-star recruit Dwayne Morgan will choose the Terps on April 5th.

It's incredibly frustrating for fans but I think the program is on the way up. This team has just too much youth and too many flaws. It makes quality road wins just about impossible.  The last shot is today vs UVA.

A win guarantees Maryland nothing.  The Terps need to win the ACCT to get into the Dance now.

Maryland vs UNC

The Terps have their latest "must-win" game of the season tonight. It will be in the midst of a snowstorm.  If the crowd shows up, we should give UNC all they can handle. The last game against Wake was promising.  The team played a style that was reminiscent of the early season form.  Pe'shon Howard finally played well.  The Terps are still [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Wake

Terps are officially playing out the string.  Not even an unlikely 3-game winning streak to the end the season can save their NCAA hopes now. Wake sucks but somehow are tough at home.  I've given up hoping this team will figure it out.  Win or lose today, nothing changes about this season. [...] Read More »

Picking Up The Pieces

It's time for some tough love. Turgeon said the team would get better.  He was wrong.  He didn't count on Pe'shon Howard completely melting down.  Remember, Howard was averaging 6 assists/game before the ACC season started with very few turnovers. It was certain to expect a dip when the ACC season started but he degenerated to the point of being [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Georgia Tech

The calculus could not be simpler.  Win and the quest for an NCAA berth continues.  Lose and the dream of an at-large berth is over. If the team can't seem to find their focus based on the above, then forget the season anyway.  Winning on the road is hard no matter where it is, but Maryland faces two bottom of the conference teams this week (GT [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Clemson

The BC loss is lingering around the fan base like a stale fart.  There is no denying its stink.  Many of us are now ready to give up on the season.  While it's not really over (I think if the Terps win out they are getting an at-large bid) few fans think that is a realistic scenario. Regardless of what happens at home vs Clemson, the Terps play [...] Read More »

It's Time To Give Up Terp Fans

What a pathetic effort.  When will this program ever turn it around?  I am so sick of losing. The Terps have no answer when teams commit to doubling Alex Len.  And there you have it.  The Terps should not win another because it's that simple to beat them. Allen is our best option at point guard AND he's TERRIBLE at it. Did Cleare or Mitch [...] Read More »

Terps vs BC

This is the classic letdown game if ever there was one.  Everyone knows it. The fans, the coaches, the players (maybe, hopefully).  What can be done to prevent it?  Well, for one thing, Maryland needs to feed the post. Alex Len demonstrated on Saturday why he is a likely Lottery Pick in June.  If BC chooses to double-team him, Len must be effec [...] Read More »

We Beat Duke. Now What?

I've been going to the Comcast Center for the better part of 10 years and I've never seen the place quite like that.  With or without the student section's commercial break flash mob; the arena was electric for the entire game.  The stadium was a big factor in the victory.  The game was incredibly exciting yet HORRENDOUSLY officiated. Yes, Duke [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Duke

The season is almost over and I get the sense that Maryland is still trying to find its identity.  That's one of their key problems.  The Terps don't know who they are or what they do well. Wells and Faust want to get out and run yet the Terps are a dominant rebounding team which lends itself to the halfcourt offense.  Unfortunately, with no qua [...] Read More »
