Street clothes report

We're about 50 minutes from tip-off here at Comcast Center. The Maryland players (10 of them, at least) are going through warm-ups out on the court and students are steadily filing into the stands.

Among those Terrapins not warming up are sophomore forwards Jin Soo Choi and Steve Goins, both of whom are sitting on the bench in street clothes. Choi is out with a right ankle sprain, while Goins is out with a lingering knee injury.

Not present is junior forward Dino Gregory, who continues to serve a suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules. Under the terms of the suspension, Gregory is not allowed to be at Comcast Center during games. He did not suit up for Friday night's regular season opener against Charleston Southern, nor did he suit up in Maryland's exhibition game against Indiana (Pa.) on Nov. 3.

Nah - never fell for the "Poopy-"...in reality, the guy was not original enough to be you. Seriously, your style is a quick comment, his was guns blazing; and he got boring quickly. Wanted to make sure. Ok, rooting for Miami - I get it. They used to be such a force and still are one the NFL's best feeder programs. Of course, I'm old enough to remember the "Miracle in Miami" so have a hard time hating them like I do UVA. The duke fan thing was a dead giveaway - I may not hate Duke, but I'm not a fan. Back in the day, when the ACC let in Florida State, I was ticked off because I thought Miami was the more natural fit of the Florida schools. Their decision to join the ACC is an indictment of Notre Dame - since the ACC shares the money, all of the schools have the ability to support good programs year after year across all sports. In the BE, its every school for itself and alumni contributions mater far more. I assume in a games b/w Miami and Md you root for MD - correct? Of course I'd accept some qualifications on that - for instance if Miami football was undefeated and in the National title hunt and MD was as crappy as they are this year. You get the general idea.

Good to hear you didn't fall for the ruse HGR, unlike a few other country-rubes who did.

As for Miami, as I said before I actually started rooting for the 'Canes because of their baseball team than transfered that fandom over to their football team (back before they were even in the Big East and were a "free-lance" conference team, much like Notre Dame football. As a kid I wanted to play baseball at The U as much as anything.

In terms of rooting for the 'Canes/Terps you pretty much got it right. However I'll always go with the Terps basketball team over the 'Canes but for baseball/football it's kinda a gut-wrencher.

Oh well. I'm sure barno will hop all over this and try to say something about my Terp "fandom" and he'll try to get my diploma revoked or something but oh well.
