program has definitely come a long way when I was in school, where we were glorified scrimmages for ACC teams.

so for those of us who don't know much about college baseball can we get an update on where we are for the ACC tournament and NCAAs

yeah, I would think so, maybe with some met expectations thrown in.

I need to see next year before I decide about the following year. It's not necessarily tourney or bust for me next year. It's close to that, but I could see a scenario where we don't make the tourney and I'd still want to see one more year.

I'm not advocating firing him at all, although would it suprise me if he's out in a year or two based on what I've seen so far, no it wouldn't.

but it didn't work, and Ram barely played in the ACC season, if he did at all.
Commented on Maryland basketball season review: Roddy Peters on Apr 18 2014, 9:07a
and if none of our freshman next year contribute anymore than Roddy did, we should just part ways with Turgeon right now, because he's not making it another year.

I think he explained himself pretty well.

first, I think he performed below expectations. I don't believe there's an argument the other way.

also left off Tyler Ennis because he was special, although I don't think he was any more hyped than Roddy, also Devin Wilson who was nice for Va Tech, but was on a bad team so I left him off

Varum Ram, which is a giant question I have coming away from this season.
Commented on Maryland basketball season review: Roddy Peters on Apr 17 2014, 10:33p
just nonsense, freshman play meaningful minutes all the time, on nearly every team. Here's a list of ACC freshman who made more of a contribution that Roddy did.

the difference is your expectations for Turgeon and your belief that Gary underachieved are inconsistent beyond comprehension.

yeah, the point isn't that he wasn't a star, it isn't that he wasn't a starter, it isn't that he didn't come in and run the team.

Old Bay is certainly used in crabcakes, however, if you are eating crabcakes you would have crabcake hands not Old Bay hands. So Old Bay hands are different.

sure.. it does. It's a type of player development. I don't think strength and conditioning has really been a problem though. That's been pretty good across the board.

Len and Allen are the two I'd say, however, I think Len was more about getting bigger and stronger as opposed to an actual skill improvement

the odd thing is that if we do surprise the B1G, I'm not saying it will happen, but if it does. The ACC is going to take a weird pride in it.
