Is this article over yet, I'm getting bored...

# Recs Commenter Comment Link
21 SpinningGamera The process of finding out that their s*** stank...
20 SpinningGamera Definitely frustrating...
20 SpinningGamera Noticed that we made a run after Smotrycz fouled out...
19 SpinningGamera [no title]
18 SpinningGamera $10M contract! you can't get me!
18 curterp How anyone can take a 4-second segment of that game,
14 Go Maryland It's going to take some time to get used to
14 Jeffro78 National champions 2014
14 ThreeTerp did you have something on your fingertips only to lose it out of bounds?
13 nmcvicker03 the amount of road wins turgeon has in 3 years.
12 Maryland1206 We should all just meet up one day and fight each other
12 HughGR For throwing a fit about a decisive bad call by ACC refs in Cameron?
11 zskins26 Just gotta hope a little harder now.
11 SpinningGamera [no title]
11 nonstopjoe Most everyone back you say - is that a threat or a promise?
11 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe I was genuinely happy when he fouled out.
10 testudbro Exactly, the entire game is Turgeon's fault, not just those 4 seconds.
10 SpinningGamera I was expecting this.....
10 HeroOfTheDay Turgeon is absolutely clueless in crucial moments
10 englandumd couple of things.
10 ES46NE10 There should be a widget on the front page counting down until we're officially in the B1G
9 gregmfisher Those are the 5 guys that need to play the most minutes
9 tiimbitz4786 That's your opinion
9 HughGR Is it possible McCardell is dealing with MORE WR talent on this season's Terps than he had while on the Skins?
9 HeroOfTheDay you are right
9 Andrew Emmer And that's just from visiting fans that have to watch Diggs and Long eat their team alive
9 englandumd I actually don't think I've made any of those points, so I recognized it wasn't directed at me. I just don't really get the point of articles like this.
9 Yanik Mguaua this really really really makes me appreciate testudo times.
9 englandumd I hate everything about this season.
9 Daniel Hamilton Bloggers are snarky: Fact
9 Terperator VCR? Really?
8 redterp02 am i in the minority
8 Maryland1206 I still don't agree
8 Go Maryland I'm not sure people post what they think are facts
8 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe Mike Jones?
8 kbuts151 Premium beer: Flying Dog.
8 curterp The last five minutes of the game,
8 SpinningGamera You insensitive clod! Smotrycz already feel horrible about his stats.
8 coldrushy Sorry
8 NAmstrong Broman was instrumental in convincing Ukrainians to abandon their old ties with the corrupt Russian federation and join the much more lucrative EU.
8 tiimbitz4786 Ugh...
8 Terpies NC Then she'd be seriously uncomfortable
8 ArbeeEye Faust does a lot of things well
8 AtlanticVerde [no title]
8 Big Squeezy Maryland Basketball:
8 retlag Seth Allen says: "We didn't do anything wrong."
8 Snappin Terp You can bet the Terps will not be matched up against a team from NC for at least 5 years.
7 Terpatude x3
7 kbuts151 The new Testudo shell is tacky and I hate it.
7 NYCSportsFan That stood out to me too
7 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe So you're telling me there's a chance?
7 Maryland1206 Lol, our non Dez/Seth players went 4-23
7 john.chacko [no title]
7 terpcommenter We nearly were this season
7 KHemer I could get used to Dinich not writing our ESPN stuff
7 TerrapinatHart the timeout is small compared to a shitload of turnovers
6 Andrew Emmer I would have said that too until recently
6 mdbasketballfan Great Post!
6 ES46NE10 faust-fduke dot png
6 Mike S. On how to take advantage of an unseasonably warm weekend in February:
6 MartinFinnucane Seriously?
6 nmcvicker03 I mean you're already the new princes of the ACC and we are the half man bastards
6 Asnis71 It appears the lack of Basketball IQ extends beyond just the court...
6 curterp How many times have we heard the phrase:
6 Maryland1206 These are high school players practicing for the Big 33 game. The game is pretty much an all star game between MD and PA
6 curterp I disagree,
6 SpinningGamera [no title]
6 LeoinMD Agreed.
6 say_al In response to Boeheim's comments
6 gburtona Evan Smotrycz's off the charts decline
6 RedTurtle If Turgeon gets fired
6 John Stephens I'm all for plastering the MD flag all over everything
6 tmagterp You Win!!
6 Wise Guy One of the things that drove me to start posting here…..
6 nmcvicker03 but….
6 John Stephens Yeah but
5 Brendan Darr That first comment set the tone for this (or every reaction piece after a loss).
5 PAWIII Did you leave something in San Francisco?
5 Maryland1206 fkterp killed a guy...
5 AtlanticVerde Lacrosse game of the week?
5 Terpatude I love our guys
5 retlag Scenario in my head:
5 rtpterrapin Under-reacted?
5 mb333terps I don't think anyone on this board has any hair.
5 Go Maryland Honestly
5 retlag Yes, he was responding to a provocative question, but he was ALSO lecturing Turgeon.
5 SliceMonkey Cuse fan here
5 NeonParkTerp Always nice to let dook know that they're not in our league.
5 Maryland1206 I think it's better to attack the basket there when Cuse isn't really set
5 cdmterp And if Turgeon called that timeout
5 Yanik Mguaua [no title]
5 nmcvicker03 oh come on guys.
5 biggerboy Also couldn't agree more
5 s.r.genovese Saw a stat on Twitter last night:
5 TerrapinatHart MD is only playing one day in the ACCT anyway
5 nmcvicker03 as soon as he went out
5 turgeon's army wu-tang is for the children
5 AtlanticVerde per UA Lacrosse twitter feed
5 KHemer Also TT is producing some of the best (if not THE best) Non-Rev stuff about MD sports on the internet
5 nmcvicker03 ok then...
5 englandumd right there with you, except my head is calling my heart an idiot and demanding it shut up so it doens't get too disapointed.
5 ES46NE10 what if I had Kate Upton sitting in my lap right now
