Tracking the Terps: A look at the decision to postpone U-VA game

And...so why was this decision made again?

"We needed to make a decision this morning because we needed to stop U-VA from traveling here, which they were about to," said Frank Brewer, associate vice president for facilities management.

I haven't been to many other ACC college towns so maybe some other people can chime in here.  CP is not one of the finer towns in America but are we really worse than Durham and Raleigh?

This article got me excited so I'm linking.  At this point, I'd be disappointed with anything less than a Sweet 16, a regular season title, or a conference tourney championship.

Brenda's squad is having a rough season.  A NCAA berth doesn't seem likely at this point.
