Maryland vs BC

Maryland kicks off the ACC season on the road against a team that looks eerily similar to the Terps: BC.  I say that BC is similar because they have been competitive with good teams (see UConn and Providence) but can't seem to beat any of those teams. 

I'm probably being too nice to BC.  Maryland is definitely better than they are.  BC is at home and Maryland hasn't done anything on the road in forever.  One has to assume this will be a nail biter.

Let's be clear.  Maryland cannot afford to lose this game.  Four losses at this point is basically the worst case scenario for the Terps and adding a fifth before January would be devastating.

Roddy Peters is likely starting at PG so one hopes that the offense will look better.  I'd also like to see MD take advantage of its athleticism and press more.  It clearly worked against GW and should be effective against any team that doesn't have outstanding guard play.

BB&T: Maryland vs George Washington

Do you remember when the BB&T Tournament used to be a high quality affair?  Much like the decline of the Terps fortunes over the years, so too has the BB&T sank to mediocrity.  Now, it just basically an annual game with either George Mason or George Washington.  Georgetown is the only thing keep this from being a great regional tournament but alas [...] Read More »

ACC/B1G Challenge: Maryland vs #5 Ohio State

The ACC got off to an excellent start last night in the annual clash with the B1G.  Surely, Terp fans now feel conflicted given that we will officially be switching sides next year.  Please allow me to dispose you of any inclination you have to root for the B1G this year.  The Terps are in the ACC and we need the ACC to be rated as high as possible [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs NC State

This game should be called "Your rivals have a bigger rivals than you so we just stuck the to of you together" Game or the "Leftover Bowl".  Nothing is more depressing on "Rivalry Saturday" than realizing that you have no real rival.  It reinforces the mediocrity and irrelevance.  Oh well.  A new future begins next season. The Terps can salvage [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Morgan State

Don't you just hate games like this?  Maryland is coming off an encouraging yet tiring weekend of games at the Paradise Jam and has a big game coming up next week against top 10 Ohio State. Yet, tonight there is a tune-up game against Morgan State to contend with. This feels like the dreaded "trap game" to me.  Morgan State stinks but the young [...] Read More »

Dalonte Hill Resigns; Juan Dixon Joins Staff; Dustin Clark Promoted

In a surprise move (for me), Dalonte Hill resigned today effective immediately.  His DUIs and and related struggles have been well publicized but I really thought he'd have another chance. Not the case.  I don't know much about Dustin Clark other than that he has been filling in on the recruiting side while Hill was out with a leave of absence. [...] Read More »

Paradise Jam Final: Maryland vs Providence

Quite simply, this a huge game for Maryland.  Providence is a good team and Maryland needs a win against a quality team. I think the Terps need to focus on shot selection (as always) and rebounding. I'm rushing to get out of work so I will try to add some commentary later. [...] Read More »

Paradise Jam: Maryland vs. Northern Iowa

Here we go.  The Terps have a chance to salvage a bit from the weekend after yesterday's Tour de Force of ineptitude from Randy Edsall. Are they up to the task?  Unfortunately, the signs point to no. Offensively, the Terps looked lost in the first half against Marist, one of the worst teams in the entire NCAA.  Turgeon continues to let Nick F [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs BC

Today we find out if Maryland figured out all the problems last week against Virginia Tech or if they will descend back into ineptitude. BC is capable and will be ready to play.  I expect a tough contest. A win and it will be hard to argue that Randy Edsall hasn't had a successful season.  It would be a miraculous turnaround from the way we f [...] Read More »

Paradise Jam: Terps vs Marist

Today is the first day of the rest season.  Let's see if the Terps can bounce back from that HORRIFIC loss at home to Oregon State. First things first.  It's time for Turgeon to make some tough choices. 1.  Roddy Peters must start at PG.  Dez Wells is not a PG at this level.  Plain and simple.  Peters is raw but he can handle the rock and kno [...] Read More »
