Enechionyia is going to Temple.


Anxious , to end the recruiting process, former UMD basketball target Obi Enechionyia committed to play for the Temple Owls.


Most Critical Game

We're two games into the football season, we're 2-0, and we've won both games in an impressive fashion, on both sides of the ball. Collectively, it seems, we're cautiously giddy. But the...

(Former) UMD hoops target Geben Commits to Notre Dame


We can scratch Martin Geben off our list of 2014 hoops targets. The rising high school senior committed to the Fighting Irish.


Our QB Future

Looking forward, what will our quarterback situation look like in two years? Leading up to the 2015 season, who will be battling for the starting role? Assuming no serious injuries, C.J. Brown and...


The Alex Len Effect (a.k.a. "ALE")

There is good news and bad news pertaining to Trayvon Reed's verbal commitment to Maryland. Fortunately, it's mostly good news. The first piece of good news is that the Alex Len Effect has...


UMD: A Football School?

Have you ever noticed how, over time, people sometimes begin looking like their spouse, or their pet? Maryland has been a basketball school for years; nay, decades. And it has been a member of a...


Best Pro Prospect

The recent discussion about the 2015 Mock Draft made me wonder which current Maryland basketball player has the best chance of having a long-term NBA career. Granted the 2015 NBA draft is two...


We're Back!

Considering it wasn't long ago that B1G Ben Broman bid a fond farewell, and considering the initial shock when four new writers were added; I have to say that the coverage of Alex Len's and the NBA...


The Final Puzzle Piece

Now that Jared Nickens is on board for the Terps' 2014 basketball class - joining Romelo Trimble and Dion Wiley - the next obvious question is: Who's next? Most everyone, myself included,...


...and Wiley's coattails will include

With the commitment of one of the top five shooting guards - 5* on ESPN - Dion Wiley to UMD, it's possible a tidal-wave of recruiting activity will follow (we can hope, anyway). There are a...


And Sir Barton goes to...

With the transfer of Pe'Shon Howard, the big question for the UMD basketball team is: Who is our point guard going into the 2013-14 season? IMO, we need to get Antonio Barton, an experienced,...


All SG eggs in one Wiley basket

Does it concern anyone else that Dion Wiley appears to be the only four-star-or-better shooting guard with solid interest in Maryland in the 2014 recruiting class? Phil Booth appears headed for...


Small Ball

It seemed like most were more than a bit puzzled by Mark Turgeon's attempt to lure former Rutgers guard Eli Carter to College Park. Carter was definitely not a point guard, and that's clearly the...


PG or C; Which Is the Most Critical Need?

Assuming the speculation that Alex Len will opt for the NBA draft is true - does anyone really NOT believe it? - the Terps basketball team may have another gaping hole in its roster. Len's...


The Must-Gets

Jake Nazar did an excellent job running down the top 2014 football prospects in the DMV area, in his recently-completed three-part series. But that prompted a question. What are the critical...



To offer a degree of perspective: I work part-time as a sportswriter for my local newspaper. I cover, primarily, football and basketball games, and have been doing it for almost 40 years. After...


NIT: Why It's Better For This Team

So, we were snubbed by the NCAAT selection committee; it's not the end of the world. In fact, the argument could be made that playing in the NIT is better for this UMD team. Yes, we beat Duke...


MPF (Most Promising Freshman)

The regular season is over, for better or worse; and many of our hopes for the season rested upon four freshmen. This isn't a question of how they did, but which one shows the most promise. We...


What if Pe Had Played Against Duke?

There are several ways to look at this topic, and the fact that we beat #2 Duke makes the debate far less painful than it might have been otherwise. We committed 26 turnovers - pretty ugly - and...


Len, A "Mean Streak", and the NBA

Much has been said on this board about Alex Len being a lottery pick in the upcoming NBA draft. Personally, I think he'll declare for the draft, and be selected in the top 10. But that doesn't...


Helmet Stickers, Red Shirts, and Hidden Gems

Now that we know what the 2013 football recruiting class looks like, it's time for an assessment of the quality of the class. Taken as a whole, ranking in the top 30 or so in the country is an...


Analyzing Our Turnover Issues

Turnovers have been an issue all season, from the first game against UK, through all of the cupcakes, and certainly in conference play. I fully expected that our turnover rate would increase pretty...


Making the Case for Len Coming Back

Let me preface this argument by saying there's at least a 75% chance that Alex Len will accept the lure of the money being thrown his way as a certain NBA lottery pick. That being said, there's a...


The Argument for Starting Sunshine

Ask any basketball coach, and he'll tell you that some players are simply better when they come off the bench. Doesn't it make sense, then, that other players are better when they start? That, in...


Grading the Faust-at-PG Experiment

After two straight disappointing in-conference losses, Mark Turgeon decided to start Nick Faust at point guard against NC State Wednesday night - the result was a thrilling, 51-50, win over the...


Alex Len: NBA Stock Assessment

With scouts from about half of the teams in the NBA on hand at College Park, Maryland's win over Virginia Tech was an opportunity for Alex Len to shine. He finished with 16 points and 9 rebounds...


Dez's Maryland Career

It seems nearly everyone now believes Alex Len will become a lottery pick in the 2013 NBA draft - possibly the top pick, almost certainly in the Top 10. At the same time, it seems few believe Nick...


More on the Vaughn Front

A few weeks ago I noticed that Rivals listed 5-star wing Rashad Vaughn as having "high" interest in UMD. Ranked #12 nationally, that's at least mildly encouraging, considering Maryland was the only...


Ranking the Four Freshmen

When UMD's four freshman arrived at College Park, the recruiting services had them ranked as follows: 1) Shaq Cleare 2) Jake Layman 3) Charles Mitchell 4) Seth Allen At this point in the...
