Maryland vs Miami

I'd say half the Terp fans out there are Ravens fans and the other half are Skins fans.  The former are riding high right now after the most exhilarating win in franchise history. 

The unlikely playoff run has proven the power leadership can have on helping teams achieve goals. Ray Lewis has inspired the team to play at a level they've not reached all year.   After the atrocious second half against Florida State, our Terps are in dire need of such leadership.

The collapse was complete and total.  The guards turned the ball over, the bigs stopped rebounding and finishing.  Sometimes, teams need to lose a game or two like this to be reminded of what it takes to close teams out and win games (See the Ravens losses to the Redskins and Steelers).

Now, the Terps neeed to demonstrate they've learned from the FSU loss.  Miami presents a difficult road test, in an arena that has been a house of horrors for the Terps.  FSU proved that nothing comes easy in the ACC and tonight's tilt will be no exception.

Everyone needs to play better.  Dez Wells is the Terps' Ray Lewis (it's true) and he needs to get the team ready to believe that they can win.

Maryland vs Florida State

Greetings from CES and Las Vegas!  I've been at this insane conference all week and barely have 30 seconds to throw up this post.  This is a huge game for Maryland heading into a two-game stretch including the first ACC road game (Miami) and then our first ranked open since Kentucky (NC State).  Maryland must win this game at hom [...] Read More »

Terps Crush Hokies, 94-71

In the history of Maryland basketball, the Terps have had better ACC openers, but I don't remember them. Granted, Virginia Tech is not Duke, but good teams (dare I say great?) blow out average teams and that's what happened today at the Comcast Center. What a dominant performance! Watching the game, you never got the sense that the Hokies ever h [...] Read More »

ACC Opener: VaTech vs Maryland

We are finally here Terp fans! Turgeon and crew are set to tip off at Noon ET tomorrow.   Virginia Tech poses an interesting test.  They have some nice wins (Ok St) and some perplexing losses (Georgia Southern). The Hokies sport the leading scorer in the ACC (Erick Green) but lack depth.  They remind me of last year's Terps squad. [...] Read More »

Maryland vs IUPUI

I can't recall the last time that Maryland played a game on New Year's Day.  I thought there was an unwritten rule that the holiday was reserved exclusively for football.  I guess that has deteriorated now that the good bowl games all happen after the first of the year.  No matter.  Today's Terps game shouldn't be too exciting.& [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Delaware State

The Cupcake Parade continues.  I'm sure that the team feels like we do and are ready to get the real season underway.  Alas, we have two more of these games left.  Delaware St. may be the worst of all the teams we play.  The Terps are coming off a lackluster second half against a game Stonybrook squad.  Coach Turgeon wi [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Stonybrook

They're baaaaaaack! the Terps are finally back tonight after the annual Finals Week lay off.  It's been a pretty successful week considering that the Terps have moved up more that 20 spots in the most recent RPI rating.  Maryland now sits at #35. That's great for a team that hasn't beaten a ranked opponent (or played one) all year. &nb [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Monmouth

Jeez, these cupcake games are getting tedious.  We are all anxious to see how this team will fare against real competition.  We got a taste of it vs. Northwestern and George Mason but it remains to be seen how good those two teams actually are.  Tonight we play Monmouth who sucks. Turgeon will likely go back to his regular starti [...] Read More »

Maryland vs South Carolina St Thread

It's cupcake season in College Park and the 7-1 Terps are making the most of it.  Coach Turgeon tinkered with his lineup against UMES and he indicated that he would do the same today.  With a team as deep as the one Turgeon has, why not?  It's fair to say that this team's second five could have beaten last year's starters.  [...] Read More »

Maryland vs UMES Thread

Man, this game crept up on me. I'm still at work! This is the first of a huge string of cupcakes that will take us into the ACC Season.  UMES might be the worst of the them all.  If you were looking for a 30+ point win, this could be it.  As per usual, we'll be watching and hoping for someone not named Logan Aronhalt to show s [...] Read More »
