FanPost

Dear Mr. Turgeon

Welcome to Maryland,

You have arrived at a fan base that has grandiose delusions every season. The shoes you have stepped into are bigger than you can imagine, yes you replaced Gillespie, a mere dwarf in a land of Giants. I come to set fourth the expectations:

First you must keep the program clean, we don't want a whiff of the NCAA poking around,

We expect you 10 more wins per season than is realistic, yes, that means you'll have to find a way to win 40 when you only schedule 30.

When you recruit, we'll be annoyed that you didn't get the 5 star kid from down the street in favor of the McDonalds all american from Massachusetts. 

With the talent you don't get, we expect you to sweep UNC and at least split with Duke every year.

Every year we'll be on the bubble, even if we go undefeated, we're still on the bubble.

if things don't go well, you have one grace year before we start calling for your head.

during that grace year we'll be calling for Kevin Anderson's head.

During your time here, you will be compared to Gary,

Lose and we'll say "Gary would have won"

Win and we'll say  "Gary would have won by more"

Thank you for coming to Maryland, I look forward to loving and hating you multiple times during any given day.

oh and P.S.

The NIT is not acceptable, and you better win a National Title before you miss the NIT
