Turtle Talk Tallies: Comments and recs report from the week of May 12

Jake Nazar, 1 proud terp, and Andrew Emmer take home the commenting awards this week.

Happy Monday all! Hope you had a great weekend! Congrats to Terps Lax on making the Final Four! It gets to a point with sports like soccer and lax, that I just expect Maryland to be among the best. I should only hope that attitude can some day translate to basketball/football. Anyway, here is this week's installment of Turtle Talk Tallies.

P.S. - The article photo is of my dog. I am really running low on generic Maryland images to use for this article. There are only so many iterations of Testudo giving thumbs up that I can handle!

Here are some general stats for the week:

Total Comments were down 19% and Total Recs were down 22% from last week.

SpinningGamera's Total Recs were down 49% from last week and his rec to comment ratio was up 120%.

12 Terps_roc How do we handle good news? Do we burn stuff? I forget.....
11 Andrew Emmer hmmm what do they all have in common?
10 jelo77 The turnover at Oregon State bothered Nick and normally he is used to turnovers.
10 SpinningGamera It's a trap!
10 aamir.akram.5 This has to be one of the proudest moment for the University of Maryland that 4 of our Alumni will play for the U.S in the biggest sporting event in the world.
10 nmcvicker03 money...
10 Andrew Emmer No
9 1 proud terp This just in Alabama is involved in shady recruiting....

9 1 proud terp All of this bad news is starting to sound like a broken record...
9 1 proud terp * For the record, I've never fucked Izzo

8 El Goodd Terps13 PSU football in general
8 retlag Iowa @ Maryland a "layup" for the Hawkeyes?
8 GCterpfan I think most would prefer
8 Pete Volk I would say Mitchell has more than worked out as a prospect for Maryland
8 retlag This game made me smile.
8 Andrew Emmer "At it's worst" seems a tad harsh, no?
8 DJ Carver I think it's a bit odd
8 ThreeTerp good news gif
7 john.chacko Did someone forget to capitalize "Will Likely" in the title?
7 NeonParkTerp No respect for the Terps from ESPN on the bracket show
7 ImFromMarylandAndNobodyCanBeatMe This is the NCAA we're talking about.
7 jelo77 These kids should be called out when they do idiotic things. No passes for knuckleheads.
7 jelo77 Transfer to the treadmill.
7 Andrew Emmer University of Maryland, College Park
7 DJ Carver People usually dont want players who leave bc they question their coach
7 Mike S. Let's do the math:
7 chitsweire #goacc
7 reborn579 WE JUST HIT $25K!
6 say_al DIGGS
6 Ethan.K Quick
6 Mike S. Why? It was a germane comparison.
6 Sephtical And by that he means 'commit to Penn State' right?
6 dirtycrabcakes Izzo
6 GCterpfan If Mitchell is in the equation
6 say_al [no title]
6 Somedumbguy I guess its better than headline that reads "Edsall expects to be mired in mediocrity."
6 DJ Carver It's just...hilarious I guess
6 The GIF Oracle [no title]
6 Kevin Garcia The more I watch this
