NC State Thread

NC State is a bad team, so the Terps should be fine today.  You see, the Terps can't beat good teams, only the bad ones.  State qualifies as bad, so that mean a likely victory.

The Terps have virtually no chance of making the Tournament.  Aside from winning out and making a deep run into the ACC Tournament, the Terps are headed to the NIT.

It sucks.  Even during the dark Chris McCray / Nik Caner-Medley years, the Terps at least were a bubble team until the very end.  The current Terps won't have any drama come Selection Sunday.  They don't deserve to be considered and they won't be.

This is the reality that the Terps are facing in three weeks time if things continue down the current path.  Though likely, it does not have to be that way.  The Terps can find their way through the muck in which they find themselves.  Stoglin and Williams offer the best inside/outside combo College Park has seen in years.  Stoglin electrified the Cassel Center last Tuesday with his blinding quickness.  He was able to get to the lane at will, and he dished out 6 assists and dropped in 25 points.  Those are numbers that only future stars can contribute as freshman.

Well, the future is now.  The Terps need to turn the keys over to Stoglin and Howard.  Tucker, Mosley, and Bowie should be the ones with the short leashes.  The first turnover or ill-advised three should send that trio to the bench.

It can start today.  After NC State, the Seminoles come to town.  A win there and the Terps can start to think about winning out by finding victory in Chapel Hill.  If they can close out UVA in the final game; A trip to the ACC semifinals would put them back on the bubble. That's all they have to hold on to at this point. My hope is that the freshman are just crazy enough to believe in it.

Terps Squander Stoglin's Mastery

For all intents and purposes, the season is now over.  NIT here we come.  Adrian Bowie, Cliff Tucker, and Sean Mosley have gotten worse as the season has progressed.  They have been terrible in this last stretch of games. Despite their dreadful performances; the Terps were in this game to the end thanks to the dazzling play of Te [...] Read More »

Virginia Tech Thread

Sorry that I'm late getting the thread up; it's been a busy day at the office.  The Terps need to win their games.  That's the bottom line. Maybe tonight's the night they find some momentum.  Who knows?  It's an opportunity to get a little revenge.  Hopefully, the smell of Cliff Tucker's decomposing corpse won't interfere w [...] Read More »

Play The Freshman

The Terps have pretty much run out of chances this year.  The upperclassmen (Mosley included) have failed to elevate this team to victory during various crucial opportunities throughout the season.  As far as I'm concerned, their time is up. If the Terps are to find a way back into the season; it will need to come from the freshmen [...] Read More »

Terps Are An NIT Team

Today's game was lost in 2007.  You see, that was the year that Cliff Tucker, Adrian Bowie, and Dino Gregory came to campus. Of that illustrious group, Dino is the only one in the class who has improved during his time on campus.  If this were the 1990s, none of these kids would have even sniffed a campus visit, let alone play a combined [...] Read More »

Beat BC Or Busted Bubble

There is not a realistic scenario where the Terps can lose in Boston tomorrow and still make the Tournament.  Sure, they can lose; then catch fire and run the table.  Remember though that I said "realistic scenario".  If the Terps can't BC, they arent' winning at Tech and UNC. As for the matchup, the Terps should beat th [...] Read More »

Longwood Comes To Town (If That's Their Real Name)

If you had asked me whether I think it is more likely that the name "Longwood" belonged to a Division I University or an 80s Pornstar; I would have gone with Pornstar.  I mean is there a better porn name than "Richard Longwood"? My goodness. Regardless, the pathetic "Lancers" (that's their real mascot) come t [...] Read More »

There is a place to comment underneath the post so there can be an ongoing discussion of the recru [...] Read More »

2012 Basketball Recruting Targets

- Sterling Gibbs: 6'3" 18-lbs Scouting Grade: 91 Gibbs has grown two inches in between his junior and senior season.  He is the brother of Pitt's Ashton Gibbs and if he is anything like his brother (he is now taller than Ashton), then the Terps have their floor leader for the next 4 years.

Wake Forest Game Thread

I'm tempted to call this a trap game because the Terps will likely suffer a hangover after getting outclassed by Duke.  Well, if that is in the cards, I don't want to be a part of it. Wake is terrible.  Maryland is playing terrible.  Something's gotta give.  Actually it doesn't.  Maryland can play poorly and still beat [...] Read More »
