Bring on the Panic!

You're a broken record...GW rules! These kids are trying! Wait till next year! Try expressing one legitamate opinion.

Okay.  Bring it on.  I am so glad that I'm not like you Wowser, or LJT who just live to bash the kids, blame the greatest coach in the history of the University, and call for him to be fired. 

Put our record in the last 17 years up there with any school in the nation.  We aren't Duke/UNC/Kentucky, but it could be so, so, so much worse.  I know we all want the team to be good, but you gotta be realistic. 

Thursday night was a bad game.  A horribly frustrating game.  It exposed things this team must work on, but for not one second do I think that this one game proves that (and I'm taking this from a ton of the comments on the thread) EVERYONE ON THE TEAM EXCEPT JORDAN WILLIAMS AND KEITH BOOTH SUCK.

This team now is in a desperate place.  They will need to catch fire, win on the road, and finish the season with 9 wins in 10 games if we expect to make the tourney.  That's the way it is. 

Will I still be watching and rooting for them on Saturday afternoon?  Damn right.  It's a lot better than saying they all suck, then when they start playing better, jumping back on the bandwagon and talking shit. 

I'm as disappointed as any of you.  I've also watched a lot of sports, especially college basketball where I've seen young players have awful games and then have great careers.  Our freshmen haven't even played 20 games yet.  Give them a break. 

I know a lot of the comments on the thread were frustration from true fans, but I'm just sick of seeing the ones that are just made to piss people off. 

You think after what we just went through in the football program, that if they got rid of Gary, you think they'd get a big name that would be able to "walk that line" in recruiting?  I'm not confident in that.  Careful what you wish for.

I stand by my comments that this team will be very good by year's end.  Perhaps it'll be in the NIT, but I'm also confident we'll be ready to roll next year with a set rotation and everyone being on the same page. 

So, get over the one bad game we've had all season long and let's see if they can answer the bell on Saturday.

Terps-Va.Tech Thread

Welcome to the first day of the rest of the season. What's done is done.  We are a good team, could be a very good team.  But we are going to have to prove ourselves in the conference now. We have already put ourselves behind the 8-ball with the home loss to BC, so that makes tonight a MUST WIN.  There is no excuse not to come [...] Read More »

The Plan To Get The Terps Into The Dance

The season is just over half over.  The Terps sit at 11-6 and without a well-documented signature win; are likely on the outside of the NCAAs looking in.  What needs to happen in order for the Terps to get on to the right side of the bubble?  There is only one team on the calendar that is definitely better than the Terps (Duke).& [...] Read More »

Terps vs Villanova: Last Chance For Good Impression

The headline is true.  Tomorrow is the last chance for the Terps to make a statement outside of the ACC.  Villanova boasts a 15-1 record and is ranked #7 in the country.  A win in Philadelphia will erase many doubts about this year's Terps.  A victory would expunge all of the near misses the Terps have endured thus far.  [...] Read More »

Terps Cruise Past Hapless Deacons

In what universe does a team like Maryland shoot its worst FG% of the season and win on Tobacco Road?  Welcome to the ACC circa 2011.   Wake Forest is brutal and they may not be the worst in the conference (that would be reserved for Georgia Tech). The Terps will take it.  Tonight, MD was in desperate need of a win and they [...] Read More »

Wake Forest Thread

Greetings from Silicon Valley! I've been training on the west coast all week; so I've been a bit of the loop on the Soup. Sundays loss at Cameron obviously disappointed; but I believe (like Gregg), that we can take solace in the fact that the Terps played Duke closer at Cameron than any other opponent this year.  We even played better in [...] Read More »

Nothing To Be Upset About... Yet, Still Not Good

The headline sums it up for me. I came away from watching the game shrugging.  We are what we are.  We are a good team with a chance to be very good.  However, our problems are not going to go away.  - All four of our guards are inexperienced and have holes in their games.  - We are horrible at the free throw lin [...] Read More »

Maryland vs. Colgate Thread

Colgate is terrible.  They are 1-11. The Adonal Foyle years are long gone.  Unfortunately, this game won't provide much of a tune up for Duke this weekend. The only thing to watch for the player rotation that Gary Williams employs.  I wouldn't expect more than 8 guys to play against Duke so the first 8 in tonight will likely be p [...] Read More »
