What Do We Need in 2015?

Based on our recruiting efforts, not much is clear about what Turge considers our areas of need for the 2015 class. What is clear is that we need someone to back-up Melo Trimble for the...


Basketball Scheduling: Just A Thought

It seems like every season we debate the strength - or lack thereof - of the upcoming basketball schedule: Is the risk of losing relatively tough games against decent competition better than...


Turge's Rotations

One of the bones of contention with Mark Turgeon over the years has been his rotations and substitution patterns. So, considering the players available for the upcoming season, how many players...


Henderson: Pros and Cons

Back in 2011, Terry Henderson was a Raleigh (N.C.) high school shooting guard many of us were hoping would commit to Maryland. He chose WVU instead; but after announcing he would transfer a few...


Who Will Be the First to Commit?

Melo Trimble committed to UMD on December 13, 2012, long before he would arrive in College Park as a freshman. That was exceptionally early for the 2014 class. Now, 18 months later, we're still...


UMD's (Long-Term) QB of the Future

Assuming Kai Locksley chooses not to join his Dad at Maryland, who will be the Terps' long-term quarterback of the future? Barring unforeseen circumstances, C.J. Brown will be the starter for...


Reed Out 8-12 Weeks With Broken Ankle

According to Jeff Ermann at IMS, incoming Maryland center Trayvon Reed will be sidelined 8-12 weeks with a broken ankle. That would mean he'd be unable to workout with the team until sometime in...


Basketball Transfers: I'm So Confused!

It feels so much better when I think I have a handle on the basketball recruiting plans. I mean, there are only five positions, plus a handful of nuances for a few of the positions (a...


Beyond Melo

When there is a McDonald's All-American coming to College Park, it's only natural for his name to crop up often when the conversation turns to the 2014-2015 basketball season. Romelo Trimble has...


My, How Quickly Things Change

A mere week ago, it seemed our primary focus for the 2015 basketball recruiting class was bigs: Another center and a power forward. Now, with the exodus of Roddy Peters, point guard would seem to...


Whose Loss Will Hurt the Most?

Nick Faust, Shaquille Cleare and Roddy Peters will not, according to multiple sources, wear a UMD uniform next season; and their absence could have a profound effect on the degree of success the...


Maryland's Athletic Power Forward Problem

It's been well documented that the Maryland basketball team is in dire need of an athletic power forward; a Chris Wilcox-type, who has the hops to provide some rim-protection, the muscle to...


UMD Basketball: A Perspective

This basketball season has not gone the way any of us expected in early October. That much is safe to say. Later in October, the player Turge was expecting to guide the team - Seth Allen - broke...


Questioning - Or Debating - a BB Recruiting Decision

I was surprised when Turge went gung-ho in his recruitment of Jared Nickens. Not that Nickens isn't worth the scholarship; he's fully capable of becoming a star at UMD. But as a small forward...


Which Program Is Harder to Build?

It's been alluded to peripherally in other threads recently, and seems like a valid topic for it's own debate: Is it more difficult to build a football program or basketball program at UMD? S...


Curb Our Frustration

Since 1939, there have been 20 teams which have won just one NCAA National Championship in basketball. Of those, Maryland is the most recent. There's no question the Natty was a tremendous...


Who Could Give Us That "Splash"

Let me preface this fanpost by saying I'm not in favor of getting rid of Randy Edsall at this time for multiple reasons: 1) I believe he needs more time to see what he can do for the UMD football...


What Can a PG Do That a Combo Guard Can't?

The return of Seth Allen has reopened the debate about him not being a true point guard. And that leaves me more than a bit confused. (I know, so what else is new, right?). It's been...


Gary vs. Turge: A two-year comparison

The comparisons were inevitable, I guess. Gary Williams, the beloved former UMD basketball coach (and alum), led the men’s basketball team to its only National Championship…ever. That, in...


Our Running Back Future

We finished the football regular season at 7-5 despite suffering numerous injuries, and did it with very few seniors. We also have a very good recruiting class coming in - with some luck it...


Some Encouraging Signs

After watching the Terps' basketball team stave off a Providence rally to win the Paradise Jam Tournament Monday - a game in which I suspect all of us were concerned we were about to witness an...


Is There A "Big" Solution?

Mark Turgeon has a "big" problem which may require a very creative solution. It became crystal clear after the Oregon State loss, that he's missing a key ingredient in the frontcourt....


What Should Turge Be Doing?

The loss to Oregon State was disappointing at best; and, predictably, there are plenty here who are placing the blame squarely on Mark Turgeon. Such is the nature of ardent fans. Very few...


The Argument For Starting Roddy At PG

Granted, we're only one game into the season, but to me, it's obvious we're a better team with Roddy Peters as our primary/starting PG. I appreciate Dez Wells wanting to assume that...


Biggest 2015 Basketball Need

Barring attrition, the 2014 basketball recruiting class is set, with PG Melo Trimble, SG Dion Wiley, SF Jared Nickens, and C Trayvon Reed. Thinking ahead, as I'm sure Turge & Co. have; what...


Maryland's Offense Moving Forward

So many questions, and so few answers after an embarrassment in Winston-Salem. Where does the Maryland football team go from here (and this only pertains to the offense)? First, who should...


More Touches for Diggs

Having your star player touch the ball just eight or ten times a game seems like a bit of a waste of talent to me. Now, I don't profess to be an expert when it comes to offensive sets and game...


To Become Elite

Football recruiting during the Randy Edsall era has been very encouraging. The talent he and his staff have brought in has been excellent with Stefon Diggs, Derwin Gray, Wes Brown, and a host of...


A Few Steps From Being B1G Ready

Just a few short months ago, I was thinking we would struggle mightily against the likes of Ohio State, Michigan, and several other teams in the B1G come September of 2014. But after watching us...
