Maryland Minute 10.19.09 - Leslie Speculation

The fact that I care where C.J. Leslie was on his Friday night is probably a sign that I take recruiting too seriously.

Where was C.J. Leslie on the night of October 16th?

We know he wasn't at Kentucky's Big Blue Madness and according to one UK blog, we may be very surprised when we find out where he was.  The blogger is just speculating and he admits that it's only a "rumor." But this coupled with the fact that he's already cancelled a UK visit is certainly an interesting development. Remember when Kentucky was supposed to be his "leader," and he was going to commit after their MM? This recruitment just keeps getting weirder.

"2010 forward C.J. Leslie was expected at the event, but was not there; I have been told from an unverified source that there is more to this story and I am working hard to find out more. Let me say this – if this rumor is indeed true, the Big Blue Nation will be very surprised when they find out were Leslie was last night."

Football Team Not Giving Up

Actually a really encouraging article from the Washington Times. Even if the fans have given up, the team seems to be marching forward.

"We bust our ass. The effort's there. Our team practices harder than any team I've ever been here with, on defense I know. It's definitely frustrating." - Alex Wujciak

"Every game we come out and we're fired up and we believe we're going to win," Turner said. "We just have to keep doing that. Things are going to go right for us at some point. I know it's getting down to the nitty-gritty, and we need to start getting wins. They're must-win games. But I think that right there is inspiration enough."

Funny how we lost but still moved up a spot in the rankings. If only the ACC standings worked like this. 

Concerned About a Weak Midnight Madness? Don't Fret

Justin Young, brining the logic:

In all of my years of covering recruiting, I’ve never heard a recruit say he committed to the school because a coach awkwardly danced in front of the student body, drove in on a race car or preached to the followers for 10 minutes. Rappers, dunk contests and intra-squad scrimmages are fun, sure, but they aren’t the recruiting tool that they are perceived to be.

Terps not last in turnover margin --- but closing - D1SCOURSE - Washington Times

Thanks to Patrick Stevens at the Times for pointing this out. Nothing like giving the ball away almost 2x's per's pretty much a miracle we've won two games ~ homertuck
