I'm really impressed with this blog. This represents the type of coverage the Terps deserve.

Once again the Post is distancing itself from the competition. Heather Dinich's blog underwhelmed me last year with the Baltimore Sun. I can offer no superlatives for the Sun's lackluster blog "Tracking the Terps" this year. Eric Prisbell is a much better reporter. Dinich got a job with ESPN because she's cute.

Keep up the great work!

Dinich is cute? Ok if you say so...

Charles, maybe you should have been reading Patrick Stevens' blog, D1scourse, the last 2 years or so.

The Terps will be lucky to finish with an overall .500 record. I love the Terps, but they have fallen into mediocrity and it seems mainly due to their recruiting woes. I am sure Gary can still coach about the same as he always could but he has been trying to strike gold twice by finding Lonnie Baxter and Juan Dixon clones and it just isnt working out. You can't rely on diamonds in the rough with every recruting class. I just hope Vermont doesnt sting them in that third game of the year.

Things from Jan.10th on look scary for the Terps. Even the Michigan State before that game looks to be a tough one.

if they can get some big men to step up they could be a player in the league, if not NIT here we come

Home game against Duke, at night, while classes are in session - I smell a couch-burning (literally)!

Patrick Stevens' awe-inspiring blog has sure turned pop-up ad heavy in its redesign. Makes you fight to read his (always excellent) content.

We better beat Miami and Tech this time, its just getting embarrassing losing to them all the time...

The end of the season is going to kill us. Every year we are a bubble team, this year our bubble will be hard to take with NC, Duke in the last 5 games!

Go ahead and assume you'll beat Michigan State, but it ain't gonna happen!

like they say you cant spell NIT without terrapins. 16 wins top. you have some upsets but looks like a another nit run for the terps. is gary ever on the hot seat?

Enjoy this year's epic run to the round of 32, "Duke Fan in MD."

Dinich only got her job at ESPN because she 1) went to a Little Eleven (Big Ten) school 2) opposes a college football playoff. Those are the requirements for being a college football "expert" at ESPN

I predict an undefeated road non-conference record: 0-0.

GW's just hangin' around to get 800 wins, no matter how many years it takes. Come on, Debbie Yow, he WAS a great coach and has done great things for the University but it's time for a change. The program's recent recruiting record; the graduation rate; the product on the floor. Fifteen wins is optimistic unless Goins is Joe Smith.

Realistically, seven ACC wins would be a reach with our unproven frontcourt players. Terps will need to go 11-3 or 10-4 before ACC action, which will be tough. The backcourt will not have the luxury of having their man double down on our post players. Open looks will be tough to come by in a half court set.
