Terps coaching search part 2 - My wish list

I'm sure those of you who read my post on Mike Leach are saying, "So wise guy, if not Mike Leach then who?" Well I can't tell you exactly who it's going to be. And unfortunately, if I was going...

Terps coaching search part 1 - Stay away from the loony bin

Welcome to the first half of my analysis of the search for the next Terps football head coach. Make sure to check back later in the day as well; the second half isn't far behind. As you may have heard...

24/7 Part 2: Hockey is hard

After watching Part 1 of this series, I criticized HBO for making every day with the Penguins a party, and every day with the Caps a nightmare. I'm happy to report that Part 2 was significantly more balanced, perhaps because...

Thursday thoughts on the rivalry

Judging by the build-up to tonight's game and next week's Winter Classic, it's clear that the Penguins are the team that Caps fans consider their No. 1 rival. Most Penguin fans will tell you that Philadelphia is their No. 1...

End of the Road

When I heard Gilbert Arenas was traded to the Magic I immediately felt a sense of relief.  Somehow Ernie Grunfeld was able to find a team that would actually take Gilbert’s contract.  It allowed the Wizards to clear some long-term...

The "Alexander Semin is Your Crazy Ex-girlfriend" scale

In last night’s game against New Jersey, Alexander Semin was on another level. Unfortunately, that level was on the “Alexander Semin Is Your Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Scale, where he topped out at Level 4 (the Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes”). Let’s look...

Is United cheap?

United passed on the likes of Jimmy Conrad, Guillermo Barros Schelotto and Juan Pablo Angel in last week's expansion draft, choosing the less-expensive options of Josh Wolff and Joseph Ngwenya. Then they traded Troy Perkins - who was scheduled to...

Washington on the Pacific

I am an expatriate Washingtonian living on the west coast, always complaining how I can't get The Washington Post home delivery or C-SPAN 3. This means I plan my annual budget starting with NFL Sunday Ticket ("eh, the kids can...

Foolishness in College Park

After years of waiting, Terrapin Nation has finally received what it had been craving: national recognition for the football program. Unfortunately, it was nowhere near the kind of recognition that it coveted. It came at the expense of Ralph Friedgen,...

Heart Ralphitations

In September of 2006, I wrote a column for The Diamondback defending Ralph Friedgen. The team was coming off back-to-back five win seasons, and some of the students were starting to get a little restless that the team had looked...

Shanahan is right where he should be

After watching the Redskins battle the Cowpies on Sunday a slew of memories, emotions, and trivial facts came rushing back. It then became clear to me, for the first time this season, why Mike Shanahan was the right man to...

A weekend to remember

Up in Connecticut where I live, the Redskins-Cowboys game was not televised. Oh, how the mighty have fallen!  Remember when the whole country would always get this one? When across America, people who had never been to either Dallas or...

In defense of Flip Saunders

One of the least surprising results of a bad season is an outcry from fans to fire the coach. Calls for Flip Saunders’ job have become almost a meme on message boards, fan sites and in my e-mail inbox. Complaints...
