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 team out. Over the first 30 minutes of every game, the Terps look like one of the best teams in the ACC.  Over the final 10 minutes, they look like the absolute worst team in college basketball.  Everything goes out the window.  Free throw shooting, shot selection, turnovers, you name it.

My head hurts. I can't talk about it anymore. On to other things.

Aside from being a terrible announcer who couldn't tell the difference between a block and charge if his life depended on it, Jason Williams, did make a point about the Terps remaining schedule.  They have opportunities.  The games will be tough, but if the Terps can slay a dragon or two; they'll be making a case for the big Dance. 

Don't laugh.  A win at Duke this Saturday and it will be a legitimate topic of conversation.  To win, the Terps will have to play a complete 40 minutes.  Something that hasn't happened all season.  It has to happen sometime right?

I think the Terps will need to win either at Duke or at UNC to have a legitimate shot at the NCAAs.  They may need to sweep UVA too.  It's not a likely scenario but it could happen.

Before I go, I need to say a word about Stoglin.  He is simply masterful at times. I've always thought that Stoglin wouldn't be able to find a place at that next level, but he's converted me.  The guy can flat out score against anyone.  He's got an incredible array of shots.  Did anyone see that teardrop in the second half?  Where'd that come from?  He's too small for a shooting guard and he's no point guard by anyone's definition but he'll find his way in The League.  I just hope he doesn't leave early.

For a team that is barely sniffing the post season, we Terp fans sure do fret over players leaving early for the NBA don't we?  I think we should be prepared for a Jordan Williams-esque speculation come May; but I think Terrell will be back.  I said the same about Williams, but I'm hoping that Jordan serves as a cautionary tale.  Did anyone notice that Jordan was quietly assigned to the Springfield Armor of the D-League last month?  Hopefully Mr. Stoglin did.

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 Fall Apart; Lose 56-45

CJ Brown almost did it by himself.  Outside of Justus Pickett and Davin Meggett he had no help.  Brown set  a school records for rushing yards by a QB and he put 45 points up against the #24 ranked defense in the nation. Yet it was not enough.  Not even close.  That's because Maryland's receivers are the worst I've ever [...] Read More »

Clemson Game Thread

Tonight the Terps can reach the promised land of 10 wins.  By no means is this the biggest hurdle left in their path; but it is a major one nonetheless.  Clemson is clearly capable of making life extremely difficult for our skill players and the Terps will not be taking them lightly.Of course, after Saturday's heroics; there's always the possibilit [...] Read More »

Clemson Game Day Thread

From here on out, every game the Terps play is the "biggest game of the season" and should be treated as such.  But in my view, tonight's game carries a little extra weight.  A road win at Clemson will prove to the country that Maryland is for real and not just a good team feasting on lesser opponents.Clemson's coach, Oliver Purnell has called the [...] Read More »

Maryland In Sole Possession of First Place in the ACC Atlantic

Not only is that headline ridiculous, it's true.  The Terps are currently the only team in their division without a loss.  If the season ended today, we would be playing in the ACC Championship Game.  I think we can now all agree that the ACC is crazy.  The quality is lacking but anything can happen.The Terps squeaked by today.  They still made ple [...] Read More »

Maryland vs. Clemson Preview and Thread

Clemson comes to town today and frankly, I'm not excited.  In fact, it could be a blood letting.  Maryland is in complete disarray and reeling from losses to schools with next no football pedigree.  It is not exactly the best time to host perennial power, Clemson.The loss last week to Rutgers officially lowered the floor for the season. There is no [...] Read More »

Opportunity Knocks in Clemson, SC

Make no mistake. The Terps are a long shot to make the NCAAs. However, a loss at Clemson on Tuesday, will not eliminate the Terps. Maryland is not expected to beat the #8 team in the RPI on the road. So, the Terps have no expectations and nothing to lose. Add that to the fact that this is the MD's only shot to gain a modicum of revenge against [...] Read More »

Terps Adjust, Beat Clemson!!!!

Wow.I'm nearly speechless. For anyone who watched this team play in the first half, we had no business to be on the same field as Clemson. They ran it down our throats all day long in the first half. It was men against boys. The offense shot itself in the foot and settled for field goals.But then...It all turned around!Chris Cosh has gotten his [...] Read More »

Can the Terps Defy Death (Valley)?

Winning a football game in Death Valley is a rare occurance for Clemson opponents. Few venues in the ACC boast a larger capacity than the 81,473 seats in Memorial Stadium. The Terps have posted victories in Death Valley only three times since 1985- roughly 27% of the time.\par\parThe odds are against the Terps this time around too. Before the s [...] Read More »
