Marylands Tips Off Basketball Season In Style Vs Kenucky Tonight

What a night we have in front of us!  Win or lose, blowout or close game, it is just great to be on the national stage again.  What's more, the Terps get to debut their new prized guard Dezmine Wells not to mention the Brooklyn-esque gray faux flannel uniforms. 

Fresh off being cleared by the NCAA, Wells instantly becomes one of the team's best offensive options.  The Terps are now likely to go with a three-guard set (Wells, Faust, Howard) with SF Jake Layman taking a seat on the bench to make room for Dez.

I feel infinitely better about the Terps offensively with Wells in the lineup.  He's a proven scorer with NCAA Tournament experience (something no one else on the roster possesses) and he is top flight athletic talent.  With Wells and Faust in the backcourt, the Terps will ooze athleticism.  Will it be enough to compete with Kentucky, remains to be seen.

In the front court, the Terps have bodies.  Len is the shot blocker and the puu puu platter of Padgett, Shaq Cleare, and Chuck Mitchell should hold their own on the boards.

On the bench, I expect the aforementioned Layman and Seth Allen to provide a needed offensive spark when called upon.

As ALWAYS, for Maryland to have a chance, they will need to limit turnovers, hit free throws, and rebound the ball.  If they do that, they'll be in it to the end.

It's crazy to say this, but if they somehow win this game, it will probably catapult the Terps into the Top 25.  What's more, it will serve a gigantic shitburger to the Harrison twins.  Boy, wouldn't that be glorious!

Go Terps

Maryland - Georgia Tech Thread

The Terps will attempt to redefine the term "Linebacker U" as a freshman reserve linebacker will start at quarterback. How we got here has been well documented.  It will either be a legendary moment or a laughable one. Let's hope for the former. [...] Read More »

2012-13 Kicks Off With IUP Exhibition

To paraphrase the great Charles Barkley, I don't know anything about Indiana University of Pennsylvania but they in trouble.  At least I hope they are. Maryland begins tonight what I think will be one of the most intriguing seasons in recent history.  The Terps finished last season with a 17-15 record and embodied the term mediocrity.& [...] Read More »

And Then There Was None. Rowe Out For The Year

We've now officially entered unchartered territory as the Terps have lost an unprecedented 4th QB to a season-ending injury.  The new QB is rumored to freshman Linebacker, Shawn Petty, who quarterbacked Greenbelt's Eleanor Roosevelt High School last year.  If Petty goes down, which at this point you need to prepare for, Brian McMahon a fr [...] Read More »

I Strongly Dislike Randy Edsall

Randy Edsall sucks as a tactical game coach.  End of Story.  The last eight minutes of the game against BC were a clinic on how to coach a game to lose.   The Terps force a turnover inside the BC 40-yard line and instead of putting the game away; Edsall goes conservative and BC forces a three and out. We punt it back to BC a [...] Read More »

BC Game Thread

The Caleb Rowe Era begins in earnest today against a dreadful BC team.  As long as Rowe doesn't hurt us, the Terps should have enough in the tank to win this one. The Terps have a really good going on great defense and that's what we need to lean on. Diggs and Rowe will need to make just enough big plays to keep us ahead of the Eagles. [...] Read More »

Hills To Burns To Rowe In Less Than A Week

Since the moment that Brad Craddock missed that 33 yard field goal on Saturday, nothing has gone right for the football team.  Both newly anointed starting QB, Devin Burns and starting wideout Marcus Leak are now gone for the season with foot injuries. True freshman, Caleb Rowe is now the only QB on the roster.  Leak and Burns now find [...] Read More »

Maryland vs NC State Thread

I'm getting this up right at kickoff. Sorry for the delay. I've been at a sales conference all week.  Terps have a chance to make a statement that they are for real today. A won and Maryland is a legit division contender and a likely bowl participant. It should be a defensive battle and come down to the wire. Go Terps! [...] Read More »

Roddy Peters Decision Thread

Fresh off an in-home visit from Dalonte Hill and Mark Turgeon, the #3 ranked PG (#47 overall) will announce his decision tomorrow.  Maryland, and Xavier are the favorites to land his services. In terms of a booby prize for not getting the Harrison, Peters would be amazing.  We all know that the Harrisons were "one and done" g [...] Read More »
