Terps Fall Short In Brooklyn...Again

Some quick hits:

-There are no moral victories. 

-There were some things to be encouraged about but we all need to remember that Maryland STUNK for 32 minutes of the game.

-Faust is a Pee I Gee PIG.  18 shots! He made 5 of them.  Faust is sure he is a crunch time guy.  He's not.  His shot selection is horrendous.

-Dez is not a point guard.  Roddy will be very good eventually, but he is not ready to run the offense.

-Smotrycz is a player.  He shoots, he can put it on the floor and he can pass.  Lots to like.

-Charles Mitchell is the key to the season.  He is a monster in the paint.  I love him.  The offense could be running through him by the end of the season.

-Shaquille Cleare is lost.  He's got no offensive game was a step slow on defense.  I'm at a loss to describe what's going on with him.  He reminds of Braxton Dupree Part Deux.

-Jake Layman looked good.  He needs to get the ball more.

-The Terps took WAY too many threes.  They need to take more jump shots closer in.  Mitchell can open things up if he can score in the paint.

-Turgeon stayed with zone for WAY too long. It was atrocious.  The team could not run it and it help UConn run up 48 points in the first half.  It was shameful. 

-The Terps started slow AGAIN.  The Terps came up short in Brooklyn AGAIN.  Someone on this team needs to learn how to win.

Maryland vs UConn Game Thread

The Terps kick this season off in a few hours and excitement is building throughout Terpland. A couple things to watch for... Last year, Alex Len dominated Kentucky and Terp fans everywhere thought we'd see that for the rest of the year.  We were wrong.  The lesson:  don't take anything that happens tonight too seriously. Ha [...] Read More »

It's Basketball Season!

It's hard to fathom, but basketball season is upon us.  It's the most wonderful time of the year.  Maryland tips off the season against UConn in Brooklyn this Friday.  I think the game is a toss up.  Surely, Maryland is going to be better than last year's team.  Yes the Terps have lost a lottery pick but I think the Ter [...] Read More »

Things to consider for tomorrow's game Clemson is coming off a blow out loss 6 of the top 7 Terps are out of the game including the starting QB, RB, top two wideouts, best cover corner, and the top pass rusher. It's homecoming. Maryland will be lucky to have 50,000 fans at the stadium. There are currently 325,000 alumni most of whom [...] Read More »

Disaster In Winston-Salem, Season In Jeopardy

The only thing that could have made yesterday's debacle worse would have been all of the QB's on the roster tearing their ACLs in a freak accident on the way back to College Park. Diggs and Long are now gone for the season.  Brandon Ross is injured.  CJ Brown isn't right.  The team showed no fight against a pedestrian Wake squad.& [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs Wake Forest

Today we learn which Terps team we will have for the final stretch of the season.  Will it be the one that CJ Brown led to an impressive 4-0 start or will it be the team that got embarrassed at FSU and barely escaped with a win against lowly UVA? There is no doubt that the Terps will be greatly improved with the dynamic CJ Brown directing t [...] Read More »

Maryland Escapes With A Win Against Virginia

The Terps won today but it didn't feel that great. Virginia came within a makeable FG attempt of beating Maryland in College Park.  That would have been a disastrous end to the game and rivalry for that matter. What went right?  Mostly, the offense played well.  Rowe made some big throws and the Terps moved the ball on the ground. [...] Read More »

Gameday: Maryland vs UVA

The question for today's game is: can the Terps move past last week's drubbing and prevent a decent into mediocrity.  With or without CJ Brown, Maryland should beat UVA at home nine times out of ten. Only the wrong mental approach can stop the Terps. Everything I've read indicates the players and coaching staff were angry after last week's [...] Read More »

FSU Knew When The Terps Were Running Or Passing

For me, one of the more unfortunate aspects of the Saturday's Tallahassee Beatdown was that it forced sports writers to dredge up the equally awful 70-7 drubbing Penn State meted out to the Terps in 1993. I was at that nightmare of a game. If it is any solace, that game was WORSE.  It was at home and if I remember correctly, the majority of th [...] Read More »

Gameday: #25 Maryland vs. #8 Florida State

The older I get, the harder it is to remember little things like "when was the last time the football team or the basketball team was ranked?".  I'm too lazy to look it up but I know that it has been too long.  In order to keep the current "ranked" status from being a fleeting one, the Terps are going to need a Her [...] Read More »
