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 starting lineup and we'll hopefully see continued improvement from the shooters.  It's starting to scare everyone that there is only one reliable jump shooter (Aronhalt) on the floor.  If Faust and Wells could hit the 15 footer with regularity we'd be unstoppable with the way the big guys rebound.

But let's stick with the 15 footer for a moment.  Not all good shooters are good shooters from three point range.  I'd like to see Faust take some mid-range jumpers to see if he can get into a rhythm.  I'll bet if one or two of those fall, then the three-pointers will as well.  Wells should do the same.  His shooting is not quite as abysmal as Faust's but it could be better.

Mid-range jumpers are a lost art and I think it would make both of these guys more dangerous as defenders wouldn't be able to back off of them in anticipation of the dribble-drive.

Anyway, tonight should be another blowout.  My prediction:  25 point win.  20 rebound advantage.  18 assists.   10 turnovers.  7 3PTs.

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 »

Maryland vs George Mason Game Thread

The Terps take on George Mason in the 17th and perhaps last BB&T Classic tomorrow.  I say last because Coach Turgeon indicated in an interview that this may be Maryland's finale in the local game.  He points to the lack of attendance as one reason.  Turgeon put words to an incredibly disturbing trend.  Where are our fans?&nb [...] Read More »

Post Game Thoughts - MD v NU

I'm late getting to this due to some client responsibilities last night but I did want to put down a few thoughts about the game on Tuesday. - Welsh-Ryan Arena is wonderful and horrible at the same time.  Wonderful: There is not a bad seat in the house.  Horrible:  The seats are mostly wooden bleachers and it looks like you push i [...] Read More »

Maryland vs Northwestern - ACC v B1G Challenge

It's a Turtle Soup Reunion / Road Trip! Both Gregg and I will be in attendance in the gorgeous Welsh-Ryan Arena.  This will be my first look at this year's squad.  All I know about Northwestern is that their arena sucks and they run the Princeton offense.  They are also undefeated.  I would expect that only one team will [...] Read More »

Georgia Southern and UNC Threads

Our football team is playing hard but virtually unable to do anything offensively. Even so, they merit some space on today's game thread. The bigger game is against Georgia Southern at Comcast Center.  The basketball team needs play much better than what we saw in the second half vs. Lafayette.  Granted, Lafayette was on fire hitting 1 [...] Read More »

Lafayette v Maryland Thread

When you work digital advertising, the week before thanksgiving is always brutal. Today was no exception.  I'm just getting to this thread as the game is starting.   I don't know how much we'll learn from games against the Lafayette's of the world, but we have to make the best of them.  We should look for continued improvement and [...] Read More »

B1G Excitement

As an homage to our new conference namesake as well as an attempt to get everyone on board; I present 10 reasons to get excited about Maryland joining the B1G: 10.  We get our chance at revenge against Penn State for all those defeats not to mention the 70-7 drubbing that the disgraced one hung on us in 1993. Remember after this class gradu [...] Read More »

Done Deal: Maryland To Join B1G

There is a press conference scheduled at 2:30PM ET today (spoiler alert: the Big Ten Network is carrying it live) to officially announce that Maryland is joining the B1G Conference. I've made my feelings on the issue clear in the previous thread so I won't rehash them here.  I'll just summarize my feelings with the following:  you giv [...] Read More »
