Maryland Basketball (Please Read)

Ok this has to be said.  A lot of people on this forum are die hard Maryland fans, alums, and current students (like myself).  We love Maryland.  There is something we need to accept though and that is that the Terps are not even close to a top tier basketball program.  I think Gary Williams gets way too much credit.  He is a great coach who has won one Natty and one ACC tournament in his 20 some years at Maryland.  That is not elite.  Ok now lets look at exposure.  People get excited here when our games are televised on ESPN3.com....that is pathetic.  I don't care if teams like Kentucky don't win national championships, either do we.  You know what they do?  They get exposure, they are always on TV, they get big time recruits, which means buzz, which eventually turns into more people at the stadium and more money for the school....but wait Gary is an X's and O's guy.  Well that might have worked 10 years ago, but in this day in college basketball you have to pull talent.  The amount of talent at there is increasing rapidly and so is the amount of up and coming programs that are pulling in big name recruits.  A lot of people need a reality check and need to see us for what we are.  A school that has had inconsistent success in the past years, but is afraid to make that jump to a consistent program that pull is talent (locally) and elsewhere.  Jordan Williams is literally our only good player.  Mosley is literally terrible, like he is horrible.  Awesome he can play defense!  He can also turn the ball over 5 times a game and go 20% from the field every night.  We are young, yes I know, but if those young guys were Tristen Thompson or Terrence Jones we would not be complaining right now.  Instead they are Hawk and Stoglin.  Reality check everyone.
