The Official Maryland Terrapins Thread

I don't recall anyone guaranteeing they would lose. I recall several of us saying it was certainly possible they could lose and we were right.

In the tournament a win is a win though. With that said, they won't see next weekend if the carry that second half into Sunday.

 

No, there were several folks who said UMd will lose in first round.  Not going to point fingers as this is not a call-out, just a fun reminder that they were wrong.

 

And yes, those who said they could possibly lose were wrong - they won.  Too many folks here constantly talking this team down.

 

As far as 'seeing next weekend', it is a total game.  Can't just pick a few minutes and say "Well, if they play like that, they lose", because I could just as easily say "If they play like in these other minutes, they win the whole thing".

 

If you post predictions as early as late January, then you will be held to those predictions.  Lots of folks here who doubted this team would win the first game are flat out wrong.  Just admit it and go on.

You just can't help yourself, can you? Love a little instigating?

I looked back and did not see anyone calling for the Terps to lose, but some hoping they'd win. True fans will NEVER hope their team loses.

I thought the Terps actually played just okay in the first half, SDSU just stunk, and couldn't hit a shot outside the big frosh (who is a player). Played better in second half when Jackrabbits came out firing, but Terps fired right back. Some good ball that first 10-12 minutes second half.

Terps went into super passive mode, SDSU stayed hot, and, happily, Jake came to play, and Terps hung on.

This team definitely has the talent to make noise in this tournament, but 2014-15 Melo needs to show up soon.

The #Terps lead the country in rebounding (+15.5) and are second in the nation in field goal percentage (.498). #ncaaW

Please, go find the several folks that guaranteed a first round loss. Pretty sure they don't exist.

Also, I'd say biting fingernails in the final minute would indeed align with those that thought a loss was very possible. Considering they were very close to losing.

Perhaps you should take a look outside of this board where nearly anyone who knows anything about college basketball agrees that this team has too much talent to struggle as often as they do. There is a reason many outside of this board

had MD pegged as a first round loser and it had less to do with the the tradition of 12s knocking off 5s and more to do with how MD has played.

Unfortunately, as a fan of the team, I've been spot on with my assessment of this team dating back to December. The hope was the more they played, the more they would click. But they actually got worse towards the end of the season.

I'm pretty sure one thing we all have in common is the desire to see this team play to their potential and make a deep run. Where we differ is that I and many others believe they have underachieved to this point and you and a few others think it's all gravy.

I just got back from a wedding and I'm feeling no pain so here it goes. We advanced in the tourney unlike some higher seeds. Some of you are the whiniest little ****es I've ever come across.

Never have I've seen so called "fans" piss and moan like you even when they win. Please leave your "allegiance" to the Terps at the door and choose another team to root for. You sicken me and just be glad you aren't sitting on the bar stool next to me.

Oh yeah. Go Terps!

Hmm...

 

Questioning the fandom of Terps fans. Simply hilarious. I know that I have never heard or read that before. 

 

Not so sure that you understand the way you come across to most people. Sure we are all happy when they win.

That in no way excuses the team, program, players, or coaches from a solid blast from the fan base especially alumni like myself. 

 

Oh yeah, I don't need your approval of fandom. Go Terps !

While I think you guys are goofy and almost comical in your stance to defend all that is MD basketball, I'd be interested to see what you guys have to say about the Redskins in the Stadium when they clearly play like crap or lose games they shouldn't.

The majority MD fans I converse with in real life, on the Internet, and listen to on the radio and in the media have similar feelings and opinions to me on the this team.

I guess 95 percent of the fan base is whiny and KingGibbs and btfoom are the best fans in the world.

Edit: Just noticed the bar stool comment. Strikes me as the guy in a Redskin jersey fighting another Redskin fan coming down the ramps from the 400s. Rock on, dude.

Brah.  It's a MESSAGE BOARD to discuss things.  Discussions.  If you don't like to discuss how they play, don't participate.

 

Now lets go Terps and quit yer whining OMG.  You can't even enjoy yourself watching the game because you are too concerned about posters in here LOL.  Have a drink and relax.

Oh boy. All I can say is sorry for my unprovoked drunken rant lastnight. I beg my ES brethren for forgiveness. :)

Proof that I was "tipsy" lastnight? We hit the Taco Bell drive thru. I NEVER eat at Taco Bell. Other proof? I was a porn star as opposed to the usual Jack rabbit. :D

Things I hope to see this evening:

-A Terps victory!

-Matching Hawaii's intensity from the outset

-Dominate the boards. With Terps size advantage, they need to, and should, limit second chances for the Rainbows.

-Jake and Nickens continuing their solid shooting from the past few games.

-Melo picking up his game. Good shot selection, pressuring the Hawaii defense driving the lane, getting teammates involved, a 2 to 1 or better assist to turnover ratio.

This is NOT the start I was hoping for. Bad shooting, mediocre defense, getting killed on the boards.

Maybe worst part is super tool Gottlieb is doing the game. Thank goodness for the mute button.

Stupid mistakes.

 

Don't like Sulaimon's body language.  He rips his teammates too much on the court, in my opinion.

 

Trimble can't turn the ball over like that.  Bricks aren't helping.

 

Not the best feeling about this game  :(
