Terps maul Ohio State

That headline feels good to write. It's been the opposite (and embarrassing) the past two years I had to give this one a little time to digest; that game showcased what we knew that Terps were capable of offensively the whole year. It was flat out a treat to watch. I think the loss at Michigan fired the guys up; that loss should have never happened and they know it. 

This is the perfect time to get the offense firing on all cylinders too. Northwestern comes to town next week, then the Terps travel to East Lansing before hosting the surging Hawkeyes. That's going to be a tough stretch of games. The Terps need to take at least two out of the three. 

Melo didn't play the last 8+ minutes of the game and didn't record double-digit points, and the Terps still won by 35. Isn't that something? RCJ was dominant, he looked in the zone. When he's like that, he's unstoppable. That was also the best game I've seen Sulaimon play in a Terps uniform, it reminded me of all the times he used to torch the Terps as a Dookie. 

Jake has quietly regained a lot of the praise he was garnering during the preseason. Still, he seems to drift in and out of games a lot. He misses the easy plays and messes up the little things. For this team to be as good as they can be, he needs to polish his game. 

Honestly, there aren't not many negative claims you can make about this team, it would just be nitpicking. They are not perfect, but they are darn good. The Iowa game is going to be a real test, and there is a good chance they don't win it if Iowa's sharpshooters get hot. But just like the Michigan game, I'm not sure a loss to Iowa would matter all that much. This team seems destined for a 1 or 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and once they get there the only thing that matters is how they play in March. Until then, everything else is just speculation.

#3 Maryland vs Ohio State

The Terps look to rebound from their disappointing loss at Michigan on Tuesday. Everyone knows that road games are tough and Michigan is no slouch of an opponent but the loss stung for a couple of reasons.  First, many top 10 teams lost so the Terps could have solidified their status among this year's elite. Perhaps, more disturbing [...] Read More »

#3 Maryland vs Michigan

Maryland continues its road trip tonight in Ann Arbor when the Terps take on a pretty good Wolverines squad.  As last Saturday proved yet again, any road game is going to be very tough.  Wisconsin provided Maryland with all it could handle and if not for Melo Trimble's heroics, would have surely taken us to the limit in overtime.  That said, th [...] Read More »

#3 Maryland vs Wisconsin

The Terps head to Wisconsin this afternoon to face a struggling team in a tough place to play. Indeed, while the Badgers have struggled, the reputation of the Kohl Center warrants respect. What's more, the Teros will get Wisconsin's best shot. As the number 3 team in the country, struggling teams will look at a game against the Terps as a way to ri [...] Read More »

#3 Maryland vs Rutgers

The Terps won convincingly with a wire to wire double digit win against Northwestern. I was there and it wasn't even as close as the score indicated. It was men against boys. The Terps dominated every facet of the game. I also got to see a Chris Collins temper tantrum which was nice. I also had the opportunity to watch the OU vs KU game last n [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs Northwestern

There are two ways to look at Wednesday's way-too-close for comfort win against Penn State. The positive view of which I tend ascribe is that never again will Trimble/Layman/Sulaimon/Carter shoot a combined 9-36 from the field. It wasn't like Penn State was paying incredible defense, the guys were just missing open looks. The win actually prov [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs Penn State

The Terps kick off Big Ten conference play tonight against conference minnow Penn State. While no game should be taken for granted, I can't imagine the Nittany Lions will be coming into the Xfinity Center and causing too much of a fight. We've seen Maryland keep teams in games with poor defense and this may happen again but the result won't be in d [...] Read More »

#4 Maryland vs Marshall

Is it still basketball season? Feels like no given the Terps have played exactly one game in the last two weeks. Tonight is the final non-conference tune-up when Marshall visits College Park. This game  should not and will not be close.  Terps fans should concern themselves not with the final score but with the sharpness of the Terps on b [...] Read More »

#6 Terps vs Princeton

The Terps play in the good 'ol Baltimore Arena tonight as the take on the Princeton Tigers.  The Bawlmer Arena is to arenas what LaGuardia is to airports: a relic of the past that outlived its usefulness 25 years ago. To me, it stands a monolith to Baltimore's futile efforts to masquerade as a major sports town. Yes I love the Ravens and Oriol [...] Read More »

#6 Maryland vs UMES

The Terps have entered the final stretch of the non-conference season. UMES comes to College Park tonight and they are surely the worst team the Terps will play all season. UMES is fresh off a 50-point drubbing at the hands of Michigan State and I expect the Terps to demonstrate no mercy either. Despite beating UConn at the Garden on Tues [...] Read More »
