Gary Williams - Quote of the Year

Dan Steinberg at the WaPo has summarized an extensive interview that Gary Williams gave on ESPN's 980 AM yesterday afternoon.  Here's what Gary had to say about recruiting:"The penalty that the Alabama football team got, for instance; they have to forfeit games, ok?

#10 Maryland vs #2 Memphis: Live Gameday Thread

After watching last night's upsets; it is amazing to contemplate the dramatic change in fortunes for Maryland and its fans.  We are one of only three standard bearers for the ACC who remain in the field.  Maryland, Duke, and Carolina.Historically that looks right; but who could have imagined that this season would have turned out this way?

NCAA Tournament Gameday Thread -#10 Terps vs. #7 Cal

I must say that I very much enjoyed writing this headline.  It's been a rocky road for Gary Williams and the Terps.  A road that has been dissected and analyzed to death by everyone in the state of Maryland and beyond.  None of that matters now.Today's game is why the players play and why us fans watch.  The first round of the NCAA Tournament is a [...] Read More »

Butler Did It. Terps Did Not.

What an awful day.It started by me going to FIVE different sports bars in Chicago to look for the game. None of them had it.

Winning U-G-L-Y

Stephen Curry got star treatment by the officials today. Make no mistake. He is a legit player. But that call against Ibekwe that fouled him out? Pleeeaaase. I thought I was watching Dwayne Wade in the NBA Finals last year. The kid can shoot, but he has not earned that yet.Regardless, Maryland cannot expect to win more games turning the ball over l [...] Read More »
