Slooooooow weekend. Small MM.
Elite 24: Brown, O'Bryant Semi-Impressive
When Brown is feeling it, he's fire. O'Bryant hustles like no one else and can actually handle a little; his strengths definitely lie in rebounding and his close offensive game.
Pe'Shon Howard Recruiting Johnny O'Bryant
That'd be good.
Sittin wit my bro @hoopordie11 talkin bout maryland yo show him love n follow him so he will be a terp
Pe'Shon was actually at the game, so he had a great chance to do some recruiting for MD with JOB, and hopefully Brown too.
Good Counsel Beats St. Xavier in Nationally Televised Game
Maybe not a big deal for some, but Good Counsel was on TV today against St. Xavier, a nationally-ranked team from Cincinnati. GC is going to be a tough team to beat in the WCAC this year; Stefon Diggs, the junior (2012) DB, is extraordinarily good. If whoever the new coach is for Maryland next year wants to make a statement in the recruiting game, Diggs is the one to get.
Vincent Croce, who's going to UVA, looked really good and will be a tough matchup ever year. Blake Countess was rather average, but he had his moments, especially in coverage.
Terps' comeback better be a big one - Baltimore Sun
Peter Schmuck says the painfully obvious:
In other words, there had better be a comeback or the Friedgen era might soon be over.
Thanks for coming in today, Peter.
Hey-Bey Starts "Dare to Dream" Initiative
As far as initiatives go, it's pretty tame - 30 local middle schoolers will get to go to UMD home games - and extraordinarily misleading considering the name and the reward, but at least he's getting involved with the program and the community. Can't hate on that.
My impression of Yow was very positive. She's known as a top administrator and an outstanding coach's coach. She's open and candid, addressing challenges frankly, but she also has a droll sense of humor.
Outstanding coach's coach, eh? Gary Williams may disagree.
