Maryland Heads To UVA For Big Clash

 The Terps are getting better.  Despite losing PeShon Howard, the Terps cruised past BC on Thursday in what may have been their most complete game of the season.  The Terps got out in front early and they were able to maintain the lead for the entire game.

Virginia, on the other hand, is coming off back to back losses including a double digit loss at Clemson.  Surely, the Cavaliers will be desperate for a win.

Personally, I'd like nothing more than to beat UVA.  In the past, I've never looked at UVA as a rival; but recently I've noticed how arrogant and dickish their fans are.  A win today by the Terps today would put a damper on what has been the best UVA season in a decade. 

Statistically, the Terps match up well with the Cavaliers.  Maryland is a better rebounding team and UVA shoots better from the field; but overall their stat lines are close.

The Terps won't lack for motivation.  A win and the Terps will have a quality road win that is sure to help the RPI ranking.  It will aslo set up what could be a nice run to end the season.  A home revenge game at Miami looms during the coming week and the Terps will then travel to Georgia Tech.  Those games are winnable which means that today's game is key to the Terps getting to 18-10.  At 18-10; the Terps are a legitimate bubble team and should get to 20 wins (including ACCT) which would be a remarkable achievement.

BC Thread

 The Terps open up a huge four game stretch this evening when they host BC.  In succession, the Terps are home with BC, at UVA, home vs. Miami and at Georgia Tech. If the Terps go 4-0, they are on the bubble.  That would put the Terps at 8-6 in the ACC and 18-10 overall.  It starts tonight.  BC is terrible and the Terps [...] Read More »

Happy Trails DOB!

Just one year ago, it was all smiles for Terp fans and Danny O'Brien.  He was coming off a great freshman season and us fans were looking at 3 more years of possibly our best QB since Scott McBrien.   Now he's gone. And he is sprinting out the door. And I don't blame him one bit. While the future may be better for the football pr [...] Read More »

Beat Duke (Please)

 Well, the Terps are up against it now. Pe'shon Howard is lost for the year, and with him went our only reliable ball handler.  How can the Terps go on? Here's the case.  Pe was the Terps 4th or 5th best scorer.  He turned the ball over a lot for a PG he wasn't shooting that well from the floor.  As long as someone (Faust, [...] Read More »

Pe'Shon Howard Out For Year With Torn ACL

The headline says it all.  Jeff Ermann is reporting that Howard is out for the year.  That's about the worst news the Terps could get heading into tomorrow's Duke game. This is terrible news for a great kid like Pe'Shon who's already fought back from injury once this year.  I've been saying for weeks that the Terps have serious [...] Read More »

 Stefon Diggs, the 5th highest ranked football recruit in the nation is making his college choice public today at Looney's in College Park at 6pm this evening.

Terps Nab Elusive Road Win Vs Tigers

It finally happened for the first time in eight games.  The Terps pulled one off on the road.  Although, before the buzzer, our Jeckyl and Hyde Terps were at it again.  Over the final eight minutes, the Terps gave away a 14 point lead.  Clemson had a shot to win it at the end.  Unbelievable.  I can't figure this te [...] Read More »

Clemson Game Thread

Here we go again.  Another winnable road test for the Terps.  Our young Terps have been able to hang in with just about everyone they've played over the last month.  Unfortunately, they've come away with only one win.  That must change tonight if the Terps will harbor any hopes of the postseason (that includes NIT).  [...] Read More »

Terps To Entertain Carolina

Surely, today's game at Comcast is the last chance the Terps have to get a signature win. The road in the ACC has proven quite treacherous for the Terps and I expect it will continue to be.  Comcast, on the other hand, has seen the best of what the Terps have to offer.  If we discount the early season under manned loss to Illinois; the Te [...] Read More »

Refs Steal Game Away From Terps

 OK.  The headline belies reality somewhat.  Terps squandered chances in the second OT but I don't care.  You've got two teams who played their heart out and the referees were not up to the challenge of the moment. The second OT opened with a clear and blatant offensive goaltending call yet the whistle did not blow.  Th [...] Read More »
