22 Todd Carton Setting the scene for my favorite quote from last night's WBB Banquet
21 cSq Sure is David...sure is
16 NattyBoAndOldBay This really has evolved.
13 Andrew Emmer [no title]
12 cSq I got your back
12 Andrew Emmer Speaking of Maryland commits in all-star games: I've been officially credentialed to cover the Capital Classic on April 26th
12 jarem Ditto
12 Dave Tucker Seems like a good time...
11 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe I hope this series ends with a Spencer Barks post.
11 tmagterp PC in the Sun today...
10 The GIF Oracle [no title]
10 say_al Thanks for the memories NICK
10 DJ Carver It's a public university
9 KStalz Um, in case you forgot
8 Dave Tucker It's true
8 Kevin Garcia Would they rather fight
8 Andrew Emmer You mean the one where you tried to argue that Juan and Kevin Ollie were comperable?
7 bballgodfather Turge better make the Tournament next year or he won't be doing any more recruiting for Maryland.
7 englandumd because freshman do make impacts on lots of teams.
7 SanFranTerp I can't believe you just spoiled this!
7 Terpific Here is a better question:
7 reborn579 [no title]
7 Lucky Horseshoe No
7 dirtycrabcakes Quitting
7 RandyJuan Speaking of Wiley....
6 englandumd the difference is your expectations for Turgeon and your belief that Gary underachieved are inconsistent beyond comprehension.
6 englandumd How do you know if someone has ready the books?
6 curterp Gary
6 Scaletta I want some gd football recruits.
6 Terrapin13 Found a gif that accurately describes how the basketball season went
6 Ethan.K Also not a bad position to be in if you're looking to become a head coach.
6 jelo77 Headlines out of Bloomington read
6 Terpific Can Maryland win out over Louisville?
6 HughGR I echo the "Please try to keep it respectful" sentiment stated above....
6 Jake Nazar Keep missing it
5 bball purist When some posters discussed this
5 Brendan Darr Oh we're making this argument in the face of the stats? Allow me...
5 englandumd just nonsense, freshman play meaningful minutes all the time, on nearly every team. Here's a list of ACC freshman who made more of a contribution that Roddy did.
5 Brendan Darr Okay, we'll go through this again. This is always fun. I can't wait for the "stats don't matter" argument that follows
5 testudbro And I apologize if it seemed like I was attacking you.
5 87 Rides A Surfboard Keep your crabcake and football hands off
5 Lucky Horseshoe yes it is ok to state your opinion
5 Andrew Emmer This.
5 testudbro Yeah, let's dismiss someone else's argument with a silly unrelated GIF. And I'll raise you not providing the "stats" I'm referring to.
5 englandumd no hard feelings at all, but one day, I'd like to know why he left, what his thought process was.
5 J-Pro Maybe they're just big country music fans
5 Yanik Mguaua for a 6'1" guard those rebound numbers are insane for 20 mins.
5 Andrew Emmer He's much more than a dunker
5 nmcvicker03 While I agree everyone should be reading it and watching it.
5 reborn579 [no title]
5 testudbro They're actual brothers? Like with a hard r?
5 CurrentTerp3 I'd like to know:
5 DJ Carver "coming aboard a sinking ship"
