UNC Game Thread

2/7/2010 9:04:22 AM Outside of the snow, the most popular discussion in College Park this weekend is about how this afternoon's contest against UNC is a "trap game"  Don't bet on it.  When your coach exhibits the kind of dedication we have seen from Gary Williams (as mentioned previously, he hasn't slept at his home since before the Florida State game); then you better believe that same focus will be on display from our players this afternoon.

The Terps are on the cusp of their best ACC season since 2003 and that means that there are no nights off. Huckleberry Hound and his crew of underachievers are not about to ruin things.  Sure, UNC has plenty of talent on their squad; but since when has that stopped the Terps?  Maryland has won three of the last four games against the Tarheels.  Those defeated Tarheels teams were certainly better than this year's version, and yet the Terps prevailed.

There's is a difference between confidence and complacency.  As fans, it is time we started believing in this team.  Save your doubts for next weekend.  I can already see the refs calling 2 quick touch fouls on JWill or Landon in an attempt to take the Terps out the game next week at Cameron. But that is a topic that can wait.

Now, it's time to take care of business and get some national recognition.  Go Terps.
