Just Win Baby... Please!

3/6/2009 9:40:47 PM Here we are.\par

Just hours from the biggest game of the season for us fans.\~ But we all need to remember it's the biggest game of some of the players' lives.\~ In the final day of the regular season, the Terps have it all in front of them.\~ Win a game against a rival on their home floor and they nearly clinch a spot in the NCAA Tournament.\~\par
\par
It's that simple.\par
\par
It's that difficult.\par
\par
There are no sure things with this Terps team, we all know that.\~ They are not talented enough to blow a team out.\~ In fact, they haven't blown a team out since December when we played Elon.\~ So don't expect it today.\~ Expect a usual battle between a bottom team in the ACC on their home floor and an overachieving team that has a ton of heart and desire.\~ I'm not sure it will be enough, especially with all this on the line, but I sure hope it will be.\par
\par
We haven't had a good history in 3 of the last 4 years in winning games at the end of the season that we have to win.\~ Today, that can change.\~ Today we can make it happen.\~ Today we take that step back towards having the rest of the country 'Fear The Turtle' once again.\par
\par
If we play like we have the past 5 games, we will win this.\~ Everything has broken our way this week to set up the Terps for an NCAA bid.\~ If they lose against Virginia, we don't deserve to go.\~\par
\par
Everyone knows what is riding on this game.\~ You think we are nervous, think about the players.\~ But despite our limitations, we are a better team that Virginia.\~ We are a better team than the one that beat UVA earlier in the season, now they just have to prove it.\par
\par
I said earlier in the year that these guys were losers, that they did not come through in the clutch and didn't have the confidence to win close games.\~ Despite the losses to Wake and Duke, this team has proven it can win in the clutch, and it can win close games.\~ In the past month, the Terps have proven they are winners and they just need to do that just one more time.\~\par
\par
The tournament starts today.\~\par
\par
This is Round 1.\~\par
\par
Let's get it done and move on.
