Maryland vs Georgia Tech

Maryland begins its ACC season in earnest today.  The ACC season is always crucial but this time it feels especially poignant. 

The Terps have a lackluster non-conference schedule with embarrassing losses against BU and Oregon State and winnable games against UConn and GW that ultimately also ended in losses. These results put an extra weight on the ACC season. 

There is reason for optimism.  The return of Seth Allen has steadied the offense.  Allen and Roddy Peters are natural ball handlers and they now share the point guard duties.  That allows Dez Wells and Nick Faust to return to their natural positions. 

Graham and Dodd are pushing Charles Mitchell and Shaq Cleare in the post and we know that Turgeon will go with the hot hand / best effort in the low block.

All this gives us reason to hope that Maryland can turn it on in January and February.  Georgia Tech is beatable. A win and the Terps are 2-0 headed to a huge opportunity in Pittsburgh on Monday. A win there and the Terps are off and running. 

They would be back in the thick of things.  It starts today.

Maryland vs NC Central

The Terps have a matinee tipoff against a frisky and experienced NC Central squad. This is a game that is likely to be competitive throughout.  Turgeon is still figuring out his lineup as his bigs have underperformed and Seth Allen is back in the fold. Jonathan Graham and Damonte Dodd are on the ascendancy while Mitchell and Cleare are [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Tulsa

Seth Allen is slated to make his return today.  If you think that is a panacea for what ails this team, think again.  Allen will help but this team looks completely lost on both ends of the court. I've been converted from a Turgeon fan to a Turgeon critic.  The players are not just failing to get better, they are regressing. Faust [...] Read More »

Military Bowl: Maryland vs Marshall

It's Maryland! It's Marshall! Who's not excited for the 2013 Military Bowl? Seriously, it's hard to get pumped to play the Thundering Herd but at least it takes out mind off the PATHETIC basketball team. In my opinion, bowl games like this should not exist.  If Maryland can't be granted an opponent that is not better than all but one [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Boston University

Sorry for the late start here.  All you need to know about this team is defined by Roddy Peters's plus/minus in the Florida Atlantic game.  Turgeon needs to stay with the kid as he makes the offense go.  That's it. Go and do it. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Florida Atlantic

It's pad the schedule time for the basketball team with four cupcakes scheduled between now and the new year.  The Terps should emerge 10-4 with a 17 game ACC slate in front of them.  Wounded but not dead, the Terps must continue to improve.  The road win at BC was nice in that it was a road win and the Terps lost the lead but de [...] Read More »

College Cup: Maryland vs Virginia

Yeah that's right.  I'm putting up a soccer thread.  Deal with it. The Terps are in their EIGHTH College Cup in 16 years and have a shot at their THIRD national championship in the last 8 years.  Would we love to see some of that success with basketball, eh? This has been an interesting season for the Terps.  They started [...] Read More »

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 ar [...] Read More »

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 region [...] 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 h [...] Read More »
