Stay with it


After watching tonight's team, I have one message for all of us. Stay with it.

First, for the current MD students. I had season tickets from 2000 -- 2006. Back then the Duke game was big, sure, but EVERY home game was loud, packed and a really tough place for opposing teams to play. You want to really honor Gary? Bring it every night, like he did. Show up, pack the house for VT this Saturday, and help will the Terps to victory.

Second, for all of us, and most importantly for the team themselves. Stay patient with the schedule. It gets tougher before a potential little run at the end of the year. I still see this team finishing 8-8 in the ACC this year, which may not be enough for the tournament, but it would be a hell of an accomplishment considering where we started. Here is I how I see it playing out (VT - W, @MIA - L, UNC - L, @CLEM - W, @Duke - L, BC - W, @UVA - L, MIA - W, @GT - W, UNC - L, UVA - W). That means they will be 5-7 before winning 3 of 4 to close out the year 8-8.

Stay with this team. They are making progress, they are getting better. The team needs to stay positive with each other, trust their teammates, they need rabid support every game from the fans, and we all need stay encouraging.

Who knows, at 8-8, they will likely be the six seed in the ACC tournamenet, and maybe two wins gets them in, depending on how things shake out. Stay with it, it's working.
