A New Low For Maryland Basketball

The headline is over the top you say?

Sure, the Terps have lost to Mid Majors at home over the last three years.  A trend so disturbing that it has forced me to reconsider why I even follow this team in the first place.   However, despite those annual December demoralizing defeats; the Terps have never been blown out by one of these teams.  Until tonight.

William and Mary eviscerated Maryland.  At no point in the last 30 minutes did Maryland look the part of an ACC team.  Instead, they look like a bunch of stiffs watching Vasquez chuck up bad shot after shot.  So much for senior leadership. Hayes turned in a epic stink bomb.  Milbourne largely disappeared too until the last 3 minutes.

In years past, I would have given you 1500 hundred words of fire and brimstone.  Now, I'm beaten down.  This team sucks. No big wins to speak of on the resume and mediocrity looms in the ACC.

These last 7 years have been so bad that it calls into question why this site even exists. Does William and Mary have a basketball blog? Morgan State?

I'm not going to engage in the same old Gary Williams needs to go discussion; but I will say this: the magic is gone.  I don't know why it's not here or where it went; but it's gone.

The worst part is that maybe Terrence Ross sees it too.  I just threw up in my mouth.

The Neverending Nightmare of Mediocrity Continues Unabated

What follows in an angry tirade.  If you prefer well-reasoned and coherent analysis, please scroll down and read Gregg's assessment.  If not, you can read my screed:I started this blog 6 fucking [...] Read More »

A Reckoning

Moments like these beg the question:  is it better to be a fan or should we all find another hobby?Maryland has never beaten an ACC opponent the way Duke trounced the Terps today.41 point loss.  The Terps only scored 44 points.Herm Edwards was ridiculed for telling the Chiefs they "could build on this!" after winning their first game of the 2008 se [...] Read More »

12 Minutes That Ruined The Season

I don't know how they did it, but they found a way to demoralize the fanbase just a little bit more than we all thought possible.That was a stomach punch game if ever there was one.What can Gary and crew possibly do for an encore? Trot out a fan at halftime and publicly disembowel him a la Braveheart? At this point, I think watching that would ma [...] Read More »

Just When I Thought I Was Out; They Keep Pulling Me Back In!

I admit. I jumped the gun a little. Here's the post (unedited) that I started writing with 10 minutes left to play. I'm still standing by most of my comments; but boy that Vasquez sure has a way of seizing the moment, eh? Shades of Drew Nicholas!Overtime illustrated what confidence can do for a team. They looked like a powerhouse out there. I [...] Read More »
