Welcome Back Eric Hayes

It was announced today that Eric Hayes has joined the basketball team as a graduate assistant.  Who doesn't love that?  A coach's son, Hayes is the kind of player who you just knew would find his way into the coaching ranks himself one day.  Well, that day has come and I couldn't be happier.

He knows the game like the back of his hand, he's great with the fundamentals, and he's beginning a journey that could end with him being the Head Coach at Maryland one day.  The Terps needs guys like Hayes to enter the coaching ranks.  Just looking at the coaching tree that guys like Coach K and Bobby Knight built (yes I realize it's actually the same tree).  You get my point though. 

The Terps don't exactly have a deep bench in that department.  Sure, Dave Dickerson, Keith Booth, and Lonergan are floating around, but none of them are exactly interviewing for top flight jobs. Hayes has potential as a former point guard and coach's son.  He's also got the right demeanor to be a coach.

It's also nice to see how easy it is for Coach Turgeon to embrace the old regime.  He's always tipped his cap to Gary Williams (and rightly so of course), but he doesn't have to hire his former players when there are plenty of Turgeon's former players out there.  Classy. It's just a great move all the way around.

CJ Brown Is Out For The Year Thread

CJ Brown decided to end his season with a knee injury right about the same time that I was in back-to-back-to-back client meetings followed by an evening event in Minneapolis so I apologize for the late thread.  It's a big blow to the program considering Edsall clearly was building the offense around Brown's skill set.  That said, my [...] Read More »

Leaked Penn State Penalties

Here's a screenshot of what could be announced tomorrow. If true, the penalties are unprecedented.  It's hard to imagine but it now appears likely that there will be no football in State College in this year.  What's more, all current players will be allowed to transfer without penalty.  There will be no TV until 2015 and no footb [...] Read More »

Back to the FSU Exit Thing

FSU currently runs about a $2M budget deficit. Over the past couple of years, according to the USA Today, FSU’s spending has outstripped its revenues by roughly $8M. This from a school that can’t even win the middling ACC. Burt Reynolds or Lee Corso must be their staff accountant. But let’s entertain the financial issues that FSU will face shou [...] Read More »

Lax Championship Thread

I know precious little about Lacrosse; but I do have a rooting hierarchy.  Obviously, the Terps come first, forever and always.  After that, I root for Maryland-based schools in reverse order of their tradition of success.  As such, I root for Loyola over Hopkins and Navy and they give UMBC and Towson a run for their money too.  [...] Read More »

Maryland Becomes Boise State East

Get a good look at that, folks.  It could be the what you see when you walk into Byrd Stadium come September.  Nevermind that the product on this field is likely to compete 30% of its passes; we have new fancy artificial turf field. There is a fine line between being avant-garde and a laughingstock.  Personally, I don't think the [...] Read More »
