And now, a post in which we will not discuss Nerlens Noel, but instead a much happier topic: Maryland Midnight Madness is, like, tomorrow, y'all.

Maryland Madness primer: A Terps preview - WaPo
Read it and get excited. A fairly exhaustive piece from the always edifying Alex Prewitt.

Phil Booth will be there
A nice piece on the 2014 combo here from NBE, with the revelation that he will, indeed, be in the house tomorrow.

MSoc: #1 Terps heading to Duke
But hey, Friday ain't all about MM. The top-ranked Maryland men's soccer team is heading to Duke tomorrow at 7:00, and the game will be shown on ESPN3. Something nice to have on in the background while watching Gymkana.

And sorry, but we now transition to the oblong ball:

Maryland LB Darin Drakeford is thriving as a blitzer
I love me some Drakeford. Really happy to see him doing so well at WILL.

Virginia is treating rivalry matchup vs. Maryland like a ‘bowl game’ - Cavaliers Journal
For a fanbase that sometimes gets hate for being "small time", I have to say that at least we're not treating a game against a 2-4 opponent as a "bowl game" is a sign of progress.

Anthony Nixon a pleasant surprise - Washington Times
I didn't really notice Nixon at all on Saturday, but with a safety that's sometimes a good thing. The upshot is that the staff clearly trusts him and likes him, and that's a relief with Matt Robinson probably out.

Hey, Kenny Tate's still a "mid-round draft prospect"
I'm not so confident about that, but it's good to hear someone say it. Sadly, this someone also thinks Joe Vellano goes undrafted, which I agree with. One of the great injustices of football, but perhaps inevitable.
