Maryland Minute 12.29.11: Graham, Rhodes Will Be Raised to Rafters

Rhodes_mediumAgain, apologies for the lack of posts this week. I'm getting home today, so things should return to normal pretty soon.

Ernie Graham and Johnny Rhodes will have their names in the rafters
Well done and well-deserved on both; I'm a bit surprised Johnny (over to the right) wasn't up there already. Still surprised about no Adrian Branch.

WBB: Terps defeat Elena Delle Donne and Delaware, remain undefeated
This was a pretty big win, given that the Blue Hens feature EDD and were undefeated and #19th in the country. Maryland, in case you've forgotten, is still undefeated this year and 5th in the country.

Caleb Rowe named MVP of Offense-Defense Bowl
That's really impressive, when you consider the roster included some top-150 guys like P.J. Williams, Malcolm Lewis, Brionte Dunn, Orlando Thomas, Gabriel Marks, and Se'Von Pittman. You have to think that he'll see a major boost in the rankings after doing so well here and at the Shrine Bowl.

Mark Turgeon on Maryland's newfound depth
Worth a read even though we all know how good it is. I still love his press conferences.

"Nick shoots two air balls," Turgeon said. "When you have six scholarship guys, it’s like ‘Hey, you’re all right, buddy.’ He shoots two air balls when you have nine, [you say] ‘Quit shooting the ball. Drive it.’

Mike Locksley introduces himself on YouTube
He goes back to the whole "multiple" thing and says a lot of nothing, but if you're craving some Locksley it's at least something.

James Franklin, Vanderbilt football have found new life after only one season - The Washington Post
Sad face.

(But why is the WaPo writing about this? Last time I checked Nashville wasn't in the D.C. area. Obviously James has some Maryland ties, but he's not a Maryland native or anything. I know the answer to this, but I figured I'd ask the question anyway.)

Last second edit/addition to today's MM - Listen to Dave talk Terps Football & Basketball on WBAL with Qadry Ismail

I was on WBAL 1090 AM in Baltimore on Wednesday (forgot to get a link up) talking Terps football and basketball with Qadry "The Missile" Ismail. Check it out.
