Jake Nazar, HughGR, SpinningGamera, and ES46NE10 take home the commenting awards this week.

Happy Monday all! Hope you had a great weekend! Really glad to hear the news from Pete/Andrew about the Cekovsky and Reed likely ready to go from day one. Makes me much more optimistic about the season. Here's to hope we get a grad transfer or two to help on the guard front. Anyway, here is this week's installment of Turtle Talk Tallies.

35 ES46NE10 well when they're the conference's most recent national champion they can have the conference tournament near their place
30 snuggles596 I believe an assist would be refered to as a "Shamburger Helper"
24 Scaletta James Franklin
22 SpinningGamera [no title]
21 Righty Driesell Wow, Nick even air-balled his transfer!
20 NYCSportsFan I have a feeling we're all gonna need to start chipping in for these fruit baskets
19 drobon22 Faust
19 Asnis71 It's this Jake Nazar?
17 Big Squeezy Somehow, this is bad news
17 jelo77 He entered a situation where there was turnover in the Beaver program.
16 Terplaw It would be even funnier...
16 booth not boo Charminade?
16 Dave Tucker So apparently Craig Robinson just got fired from Oregon State...
15 NAmstrong .
15 HughGR How was Pe a malcontent?
15 Terpatude Polar Opposites
15 rvandegrift Pete, did he get fired for making an obvious bad choice by bringing in Nick?? LOL
14 SpinningGamera Basketball... and now football...
14 Mike S. Hmmm... no thanks. I'm going to continue "hating."
14 Terrapin13 God I'm tired of bad news
13 Zol Peruvian Chicken Friday!
13 Brendan Darr I'm choosing to believe this the B1G doing us a solid and forcing GTown/MD
13 Go Maryland That's funny
13 RedTurtle for chrome/firefox users
12 KStalz [no title]
12 ExreeHippsters Now the Hokies fans get to say...
12 BigLevadelphia [no title]
11 GCterpfan Something tells me that
11 englandumd one does not demote Brian Scalabrine and live to tell about it.
11 reborn579 Quinn Cook called Maryland his state
11 jelo77 I hope Devin Wilson beats him out for the point guard position.
11 cSq Im pretty sure the idiot
11 cSq ...
11 testudbro Every time I hit TT on my browser tab I have to pause and determine if I can emotionally handle any more bad news.
11 Go Maryland If you were to ask me who you rather have on your team
10 Terptown16 Multiple feel good stories coming out of TT?
10 tmagterp Nice!!
10 SpinningGamera like this???
10 Andrew Emmer Best comment ever.
10 Pete Volk Re: Cekovsky, he will be signing soon
10 HughGR And you made no specific reference to Peruvian Chicken.....
10 HughGR The last sentence of this quote says it all....
10 HughGR So the WaPo now wants more info to allow folks to comment.....
9 Dave Tucker Based on your comment and or username you're either a Nebraska fan...
9 MHoopsJr. Actually
9 BulletTerp Ugh. And some of us wonder why it seems we're having such bad charma lately with all the recent bad news
9 Mike S. Hmm.
9 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe Yea, they'll be a lot like these, but with one major upgrade:
9 1 proud terp If you can't stand the heat
9 Todd Carton I don't eat beef but I've found most people
9 NattyBoAndOldBay Maryland leaves ACC. Plays Georgetown and Virginia. Why don't we want this again?
9 terpfan11111 Yes, Turg must do a better job reading players minds and understanding what a 19 year old is thinking, shame on him... FIRE TURG!, for a lack of ESP
9 gregmfisher [no title]
9 Todd Carton On a more serious note
9 Jake Nazar If they're playing a Pitbull song in the background,
8 rvandegrift I have been skeptical as well of Grahams spot on the team
8 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe If I know Pete, he will let us know the moment it happens.
8 Pete Volk That's not necessarily true -- people with direct ties to the program certainly can have an agenda (like anyone else)
8 KStalz I may need to take a break from this site
8 SpinningGamera Shut up baby, I know it.
8 RedTurtle We can't gloss over the fact that he's very close
8 cSq ...
8 Delmarterp The Reality is
8 Big Squeezy Wearing a hat in Edsall's presence
7 AtlanticVerde A handy reference guide
7 say_al Mazyck
7 NYCSportsFan can't be Roddy
7 Terps12 Maryland keeps selling the fan base on the future
7 terps319 Well naturally we're going to hear about this stuff now.
7 Shellshocked After I Read
7 PaTerp you would think if he did what Turgeon told him to do
7 say_al [no title]
7 BulletTerp Don't know what all the B1G fans are complaining about in regards to the Conf BB Championship being held in DC in 2017
7 Somedumbguy And Purdue people should check out the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore. My understanding is they like trains.
7 NeonParkTerp No respect for the Terps from ESPN on the bracket show
7 Brendan Darr As long as we all agree to never go to Greensboro I think we'll get along (somewhat) fine.
7 ES46NE10 Damn, what happened to Darr
7 CurrentTerp3 His arm strength and accuracy are great
7 Terps2011 No offense
7 TerpFan2001 Strange
7 Terptown16 Darr going to Chicago
7 Imissterrellstokes My mistake
6 ES46NE10 We made sure that Comcast isn't built on some sort of Indian Burial Ground, right?
6 englandumd I'm down
6 CjcJones It is not speculation/rumors/conjecture
6 randomadam A few tips
6 Tom GM You can spin this all you want....

6 rvandegrift That you don't pay for
6 LeoinMD That's what we do best in Maryland.
6 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe [no title]
6 Brendan Plutschak I saw that
6 tmagterp You would think that Seth might have gotten the picture when...
6 Delmarterp The most important part of the message to me is
6 retlag That last goal is #2 on SportCenter's top 10 this morning.
6 RedTurtle Because we want Duke to come to College Park
6 nmcvicker03 Look...
6 Todd Carton Listen Davve Trucker
6 Mike S. Sappy story time.
6 HughGR I know Tyrek left the FB team dur to injury.....
6 rvandegrift Honestly all of this transfer crap is getting out of hand. Man TFU people!
6 Todd Carton Is it just me or
6 Todd Carton I've already got my beard.
6 Andrew_Lew If that was the case he'd be a PSU fan.
6 Yanik Mguaua hahaaa. startlight bonanza colorado medical.
6 TerpfanMA What evidence
6 LW1 right
6 terps319 Not saying you're wrong, but Jeff Baker had this to say.
6 HughGR This is exactly what every single visitor to DC should do.
6 Pete Volk For what it's worth
5 terpfan11111 You guys do realize that this happens, even to the Gary......funny how quickly some want to forget the past
5 KingLeoPride This picture says it all.
5 TerpfanMA To be clear
5 Todd Carton When he hits a game winner
5 BulletTerp It's time we sacrificed something to appease an obviously very upset Jobu
5 PAB522 I'm referring to the old Pete Volk-Bad news association joke
5 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe FTFY
5 Brendan Darr Hilarious
5 Imissterrellstokes So Maryland joined the ACC at its founding in 1953, and got the ACC tournament in DC just 52 years later
5 Mike S. It took me a good fifteen seconds to see that as anything other than a beer mug.
5 LW1 Mosley
5 LeftCoastTerp Full-on Flairathon
5 testudbro [no title]
5 NAmstrong Obligatory
5 Maryland1206 HughGR will help you move in if you'd like
5 Brendan Darr Whatevs
5 Yanik Mguaua [no title]
5 BulletTerp That is why this game is so important, and #BeatPSU is so appropriate
5 zschmook Stop sticking up for the guy
5 crazy turtle Not all bad news
5 jelo77 They like us, they really like us.
5 Daniel Hamilton Writing was on the wall.
5 ES46NE10 duck finds it way too close to cannibalism
5 dirtycrabcakes No
5 testudbro A lot of people just want to bash kids on their way out and glorify the kids that are coming into the program.
5 EricPat "Going Rambo"
5 say_al YES
5 terps319 That doesn't mean he wasn't.
5 Mike S. We all know the history.
5 jelo77 One cannot help but to root for people like Jon Graham.
5 Yanik Mguaua ...skirt -or- big boy pants
