Win Puts Maryland in Decent Company

By Orlin Wagner - AP One of the standard lines about the Terps during this year's crisis of confidence went like this: "A review of NCAA tournament records shows that no national champion in the past 18 seasons has regressed so quickly." I devoured and appreciated The Post's series...

Gary on Recruiting Geeks and Making the Tourney

Can't jump, huh? Check this. (Photos by John Bazemore - AP Gary Williams has been mostly gracious in victory this week, refusing to gloat about his critics, or the media, or the experts, or anyone else. He's argued that this tourney berth wasn't about redemption, but was merely about...

Cooley Discusses Trade Rumors

I guess there are some sort of legitimate Jay Cutler-to-D.C. trade rumors. Maybe there are even legitimate Chris Cooley-to-Cleveland trade rumors, but this sure isn't one of them. In an entirely non-funny and non-Satirical Bleacher Report item bizarrely labeled "Humor" and "Satire," Cooley was off to Cleveland and Cutler to...

John Thompson's Pick for UVA Job: Boze

Caps Fans Remain ... Unique?

Every time I go down this road, I get a few predictable responses. Some say I'm encouraging coarse fan behavior, and contributing to the increasing crassness of professional sporting arenas. Some say that any anti-Pittsburgh accessories reveal that Caps fans, and the D.C. media, are unnaturally obsessed with Western...

An assortment of random things learned at the Caps game Saturday night. Pretending last night's game never happened. * Yes, those were cowbells you heard all over the arena.
