Turtle-Soup.com RSS Feed http://www.turtle-soup.com/ This is the website syndication feed for the Turtle-Soup.com Big Ten Tournament Thread I wasn’t able to put up a thread for the Michigan game. I was dealing with 3 sick kids. It was a rare miss on my part. That’s why I didn’t show up on Saturday. I can’t explain the Terps failure to show. That performance was pathetic and sadly, not that surprising.  Turgeon said the loss “woke them up”. Pleeeeaaaaaase! It’s the last game of the season. Now it’s off to the Big Ten Tournament and frankly, I’m not expecting much. Wisconsin probably beats them unless they’ve someh... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4597/2018/02/28/big-ten-tournament-thread/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=big-ten-tournament-thread Turtle-Soup.com 2/28/2018 10:36:43 PM Maryland vs Northwestern Here we are. The last road game of the season! It’s on an off campus dump called the Allstate Arena (formerly Rosemont Horizon). Fun fact: the mayor of Rosemont (population 2200) makes more money than the Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel. Don’t you just love Illinois politics? The Terps have a shot .500 in the conference but they need to win out. That starts tonight with a Northwestern squad that is inferior in every way to the Terps. It will go down to the wire of course. A win and leas... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4596/2018/02/19/maryland-vs-northwestern/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-northwestern Turtle-Soup.com 2/19/2018 5:42:57 PM Maryland vs Rutgers Who’s ready to out the string. Terps seem far removed from at-large consideration. Injuries have clearly impacted the season but to be this far out of it in mid-February is really unacceptable. I’m not sure there is a team with a better roster pedigree in a worse position than our Terps. Rutgers has given teams trouble but Maryland should be able to dispatch them easily. http://www.turtle-soup.com/4595/2018/02/17/maryland-vs-rutgers/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-rutgers Turtle-Soup.com 2/17/2018 3:14:28 PM Maryland vs Nebraska Maryland's tournament hopes seems to be the thing that will never die. Based on what the sharps say, the Terrapins can still play their way into the Tournament. to do so, Maryland must win on the road. Nebraska has feasted on inferior Big Ten opponents and have won 7 of 8. They are playing very well and it's going to be really tough to win today. Maryland must win if they want to make the Tournament. It's hard to envision a bid if Illinois is our only road win all year. If we win and it's a big ... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4593/2018/02/13/maryland-vs-nebraska/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-nebraska Turtle-Soup.com 2/13/2018 4:16:56 PM Maryland vs Northwestern This season crumbling all around us. Almost no chance for Maryland to make the dance now. Many folks are talking about how next year will be so much better with all the talent we have coming and injured players returning. Perhaps. I look at the current squad and see 4 guys who are supposed to make up next year’s nucleus (Huerter, Cowan, Bruno, Morsell) playing big minutes. Draw your own conclusions but all is not well in college park right now. http://www.turtle-soup.com/4592/2018/02/09/maryland-vs-northwestern/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-northwestern Turtle-Soup.com 2/9/2018 10:59:23 PM Maryland vs. Penn State The Terps have had very little success on the road this year so despite the fact that this is a winnable game; it is not going to be easy. At 16-9, the Terps need to win 6 of their last 7 games to get off the bubble and into the field. The schedule is there for the taking but with the decimated roster, Maryland will need to be great every night. That includes tonight in State College. http://www.turtle-soup.com/4591/2018/02/07/maryland-vs-penn-state/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-penn-state Turtle-Soup.com 2/7/2018 5:56:10 PM Maryland vs Wisconsin The Terps limp in to Comcast to take ona poor Wisconsin team.  Maryland is in desperate straights. They really can’t afford to lose anymore games and now Ceko appears to be out for an extended period of time. The injuries afflicting this team are astounding. Today represents a chance to right the ship and build some momentum for the final push into March. The schedule will be easier but the Terps need to play much better if they hope to merit consideration for the dance.... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4590/2018/02/04/maryland-vs-wisconsin/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-wisconsin Turtle-Soup.com 2/4/2018 8:43:12 AM Maryland vs Purdue on a business trip so can’t do a write up. We are going to lose this game and it sucks http://www.turtle-soup.com/4588/2018/01/31/maryland-vs-purdue/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-purdue Turtle-Soup.com 1/31/2018 8:21:24 PM Maryland vs Michigan State Apologies for not getting a game thread up against Indiana. My 2 year old got diagnosed with the flu and with infants at home, it was a bit hectic. Everyone is ok now. The Terps on the other hand, keep giving away games. Indiana was another example a blown lead in the last 5 minutes. Incredibly, Joe Lunardi has Maryland listed as the “first team out” so the season is absolutely not ruined but they’ve got to start putting a big win it two on the board. Today would be a great day to star... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4586/2018/01/28/maryland-vs-michigan-state/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-michigan-state Turtle-Soup.com 1/28/2018 10:55:34 AM Maryland vs. Minnesota I hope you are all recovered from Monday night. That was gut-wrenching. There are no moral victories. College Basketball is a zero sum game. You either win or you lose. Perhaps, there is some solace to be gleaned from the way the team fought back from 10 points down late in the game, although, the argument can be made that giving away a 14-point outweighs the comeback. In the final analysis, it doesn't matter. The Terps lost. Now at 14-6, the Terps are losing their margin for error. With game... http://www.turtle-soup.com/4585/2018/01/18/maryland-vs-minnesota/?utm_source=www.turtle-soup.com&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=maryland-vs-minnesota Turtle-Soup.com 1/18/2018 2:28:49 PM
