Terps Soccer Loses Opener to Michigan State, 4-3 in OT
Very emotional game. MSU tied it with less than a minute to go, then scored six minutes into overtime.

Don't worry too much; the game was close, and it's the second straight year Maryland lost their first game of the season. There's no doubt they'll be in it when it comes to the end of the season. Then again, four goals are a little problematic for Zac MacMath.

Oh, and it had to be Michigan State.

NCAA Soccer Preview - USA Today
It mostly focuses on Virginia, but Maryland's one of the teams to watch.

It all starts with goalie Zac MacMath for the Terrapins. He had seven shutouts and a 0.88 goals-against average for a team that reached the NCAA quarterfinals. Eight other starters return with senior forward Jason Herrick (nine goals in 2009) leading the attack.

Slightly jinx-y, I guess.

Kirby cuts it down to five, Maryland makes the list - ESPN
Queue the Porky Pig-esque "wh-wh-wh-wh-what?".

"I've got it down to five," said Kirby. "The five are USC, Florida, Maryland, North Carolina and Iowa."

Okay then. Dondi Kirby is a high-three star safety from Pennsylvania, but the offers are that of a four-star, national recruit. The offers are usually better than the rankings.

We need a true rivalry. I want some good old-fashioned hate.

Vasquez the real victim in Grizz contract dispute - The Memphis Edge
If GV's going to be sharing time as Mike Conley's backup with veteran Acie Law, it's a little unreasonable to expect him to be an all-rookie selection. So why do the Grizz want him to be one?

He'll be back for the first practice, but I wouldn't really be all that upset if this injury proved to be lingering.
