Lethargic Fury

For the most part during yesterday's game, the Maryland student section (the portion of it that was filled, at least) was as boisterous as usual. But there was one slightly comical moment near the end of the first half that demonstrated the Terps players weren't the only ones having a hard time staying into the game.

With just less than five minutes remaining before halftime and Maryland up by just nine points, sophomore guard Adrian Bowie charged toward the basket on a breakaway for what likely would have been an emphatic dunk. But just as Bowie began to elevate he was grabbed from behind by Bryant forward Andrew Lyell. An intentional foul was called, and it initially seemed as though the rowdy crowd was going to let Lyell have it.

Several fans in the student section immediately attempted to start a profane chant, but got in only two or three refrains before it became evident the chant was not catching on with the rest of the crowd. The chant died a short, yet humerous, death that let Lyell know the sparse audience was not thrilled with his action, but it wasn't necessarily intent on voicing its displeasure either.

Bowie, by the way, sank both his free throws to ignite a 14-6 Terps run to close the half.

I loved this result:

West Virginia 31
UNC 30

I have seen better defense from a powder puff football league (he said with a dose of sarcasm).

Why would anyone let their son play football at a perennial loser like UNC.

Hclark. You are a D-bag. Either post something intelligent or go home. Don't you have some homework to do?

SY either remove hclark from posting on your blog or nobody will read it anymore. Time to take action? FREDTERP

Hi Steve,

I agree with FREDTERP44. It's time to block access to "hclark1." If you fail to do so, I may no longer participate in this blog.

(Fyi...my family and I have subscribed to the Washington Post for 3 generations.)
