Okay, I just got to get this off my chest.
With the article today about Dematha's Head Coach being upset we weren't showing him or his players any love, I'm actually kind of pissed. As if the love we've shown them in the past has been recipricated. Yes, we have a few players on our roster from Dematha. Most notably Kenny Tate. But other than him, and an occasional player here and there, just how much do we get out of Dematha? In fact, in either football or basketball, Dematha has been the biggest heart ache for Terp fans on the recruiting trail imaginable. We beg and cajole and are mostly ignored by their best players. They send football players to Penn State and other programs. And in basketball, they send players to our direct rivals. And once in a while they send someone our way. We get the freaking scraps from a High School not five miles from our own campus!
My solution is to just tell Dematha to go to hell. They've been telling us to go to hell for years. We can find our recruits elsewhere, and there are many High School powerhouses out there that give us a lot more respect than the people at Dematha has!
