NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Maryland Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

It’s the 142nd episode of the Testudo Times Podcast, and with the new year comes optimism about Maryland sports. That’s novel.

Thomas and Lamar joined me to start the new year with these topics and more:

  • Maryland’s growth over this recent stretch of wins, including in late-game execution, Bruno Fernando’s massive step forward and the improvement of the freshmen.
  • What is the ceiling for this team, and how will the upcoming tough stretch determine how good they can be?
  • Going over some strange women’s basketball results, including a loss at home to Rutgers, and a close win over Ohio State, and what it means going forward.
  • Football news and notes, including a transitive Sugar Bowl win, interesting comments from Mike Locksley on not going for Alabama commitments and players who may have transferred out.

Happy new year, and enjoy the show!
