ACC Tournament Thread Day One; Wake Forest Beckons

 The Terps limp into the ACC Tournament after a brutal OT loss at home to Virginia.  The loss encapsulated the entire ACC season.  Close but no cigar.  This Terps team can compete with just about anyone (sans UNC and Duke); but they seem incapable of closing out good teams. 

It's incredibly frustrating, but this about what we expected at the start of the season.  It's a shame because the Terps are two OT losses away from being .500 in the conference.

The Terps should be able to run past Wake.  Unfortunately, UNC looms on the other side.  That would be a perfect way to cap the season, but I'd prefer for Turgeon and the boys to focus on the task at hand. 

The tip off is terrible.  I'll be sitting in a conference room in Battle Creek, Michigan so I won't see a second of the game. I'll trust that the Terps can take care of business and get to 17 wins.

Before I go, I wanted to point out a new feature we rolled out on the site.  You may notice that on the right rail, there is a link to submit your own article for Turtle Soup. I've always felt that the site readers are the real attraction of the site; and I've now created a way for commentors to start their own threads.  I will still maintain editorial approval, so please only submit serious articles that relate to the Terps.

We hope you guys enjoy the new feature.

Jeckyll and Hyde Terps Hold Off Wake Forest

I'm convinced that these kids are going to give us all heart attacks before the season is through. At least we can't say that we haven't been warned.  Ever since the Terps have gotten to full strength, a familiar pattern has been established.  Often (not always), the Terps run out to a big lead in the first half (see Cornell and Wake), on [...] Read More »

Greivis' Math = We All Fail.

I apologize for publishing the obscenity below:9-27 FG (33%), 4-12 3PT, 8-11 FTs, 7 assists, 6 turnovers, 4 rebsThat's Vasquez' line from tonight's game.  It's an abomination.  27 shots?  12 threes point attempts? These numbers don't even illustrate how bad it was down the stretch.  J Will is open at the low block with a guard on him.  Greivis igno [...] Read More »

Rubber Meets the Road for Terps in Winston Salem

The following is an email exhange I had with my college buddy and fellow Souper, Dan Goodman.  I think it sums up both the importance of tonight's game and the state of mind of the fan base:Me:Tonight's game is HUGE.  Have they turned the corner and learned to play the right way?  If they can win these winnable road games (Wake and BC), we are look [...] Read More »

The Dyke (or Dike) Is Full Of Holes

That's the best analogy I can muster at this late hour for the football Terps.  When we fix the turnovers and penalties; the defense fails to show.Due to the horrendous start time; I missed the entire game.  Needless to say, I'm thankful in retrospect.  Wake rolled up 500 yards of total offense for the first time 4 years. Sure, Chris Turner threw 3 [...] Read More »

Terps vs. Wake Preview

Before we talk about tomorrow's game; I have a few housekeeping items.The previous post - Please ignore it. I was required to post that in order to get listed by Technorati.  Technorati is the largest blog search engine in the world.  I've never bothered to list Turtle Soup on it because I just wanted to organically grow the site.  While that is st [...] Read More »

Terps Rise To The Occasion Upend Wake

What a performance!  Tonight we saw the two "G's", Gary and Greivis at their absolute apex.  Greivis was sublime.  The team hummed with him in the game.  Total up his assists and his points (some of his assists led to threes) and he accounted for about 45 of the Terps 75 points.  Take away our FTs, and Greivis was involved in just about every baske [...] Read More »

Five Football Games Left

Can anyone figure this team out? Going back to last season, the Terps have won five straight contests against ranked opponents. They have also lost to Middle Tennessee State in that time.At 5-2, the Terps are still positioned incredibly well to have a successful season. However, if history is any kind of indicator; being positioned well is exact [...] Read More »

Jekyll Shows Up; Terps Rout Wake

Ah, how nice was it to see the good Terps again. We sure did miss you guys. Here's hoping you stick around for a while this time!I have to say, what a performance by the entire team on Saturday as Maryland dominated Wake 26-0. This was a total team effort and the first time all season the team has played a complete game. I think we need to call [...] Read More »
