When I’m not banging my head against the wall after watching the Terps lose, I do have other hobbies. One of which is history. Well laying in bed this morning staring at the ceiling, one particular quote came to mind, Thomas Paine’s “These are the times to try men’s souls” speech. Actually the speech was [...]

The Washington Post is reporting that Jin Soo Kim has been reinstated by the NCAA, effective immediately. They are not reporting any details. Wow, some good news for once. Wouldn’t it be great if he plays Saturday and contributes to a victory. That would be poetic justice.
Let me start this whole article by first saying without Gary Williams, we probably wouldn’t have this website. His rebuilding of the program is one of the things that got me really excited about going to Maryland. Gary brought the program back from the depths of the ACC and made Maryland Basketball an event. Maybe [...]
This is the first part of a two part series where we look at the pro’s and con’s of keeping Gary Williams. Today’s installment will focus on why Gary needs to stay. With that, let’s begin. Economic times are tough no doubt about it. Ironically some of the hardest hit people in this crunch [...]
In a story that is becoming all too familiar, it was again a tale of two halves. The first was as good of offensive and defensive basketball as we Maryland fans had witnessed all season. And at the same time I was waiting for the inevitable collapse. And our boys did not disappoint. They went [...]
The Washington Post is reporting tonight that Jin Soo Kim has been declared academically ineligible. Their source also states that MD is appealing the decision and he will be able to practice with the team but not play for the time being. Anyone else get the feeling that the Terps are cursed?

It is kind of weird to be writing about the weather for a basketball game. Football, sure, but basketball is played indoors. Well I think it is worth pointing out that it is snowing in Maryland today. Now to most of the country this isn’t really news worthy. To Maryland it’s the second biggest story [...]
The good news is, that most of us don’t have very long to dwell on the Duke game. Let’s hope the rest of the team just kind of forgot about it and moved on quickly and are prepared for tonight’s game with the Eagles from BC. So here is all you need to know about [...]
Just want to take a few minutes to congratulate the Maryland Women’s Basketball team on yet another huge win. Last night the Lady Terps lead by Kristi Toliver (23 point, 18 in the 2nd half) and Marissa Coleman (22 points) defeated the #2 ranked UNC Lady Heels. We often sit around and talk about how [...]
