SI: Terrell Stoglin poised for breakout year
SI's Luke Winn has developed a formula of sorts for identifying breakout sophomores. It nailed Jordan Hamilton, Reggie Johnson, and Maalik Wayns last year, and this year Winn calls Stoglin the #1 freshman poised for a big sophomore year.
To which I reply: duh. Stogs took over the game at times last season despite being on the floor with Jordan Williams, Dino Gregory, and Cliff Tucker. With those three gone, I have no doubt he'll turn his chucker-ish tendencies up to 11, which will result in some groans but a lot of points.
Maryland Coach Randy Edsall: Quarterback Danny O’Brien is ‘a rare individual’
A lot of strong words from Edsall about DOB, none of them particularly surprising.
Another "Danny O'Brien is awesome" piece
This time from SI. And I think we can all agree that he is. Also focuses on Edsall quite a bit.
Boost Mobile Elite 24 roster announced
Of note: Nate Britt, Aquille Carr, Robert Carter, the Harrisons, Amile Jefferson, and Mitch McGary. It's on ESPNU on August 27 at 7. And while I know McGary and the Harrisons should excite me, I really want to see Carr in action.
Torian Graham hearing from schools, Maryland included
Has heard from the Terps in addition to Kentucky, Baylor, FSU, and Clemson, plus Texas, which has already offered. Can probably write off FSU and Clemson, which means early competition - still with plenty of time to change - is Texas, Baylor, and Kentucky.
Terps Have To Replace Stars In Hunt For Second Straight ACC Title - Terrapin Station
A preview of the 4th-ranked men's soccer team from our friends at Terrapin State. Lots and lots to replace. Can't wait to see Alex Shinsky in action, but I'm a tad worried about the youth and inexperience at keeper.
Will Yeatman picks up 2 catches for 14 yards in NFL (preseason) debut
Also, Josh Portis went 5/9 with a TD in his action with the Seahawks. Three more decent performances and he might have himself a spot on the squad.
So, Texas A&M might be headed for the SEC
More on this forthcoming.
