Pearman, Goins out against Winston-Salem State

Junior guard David Pearman is dressed in street clothes and will not play tonight against Winston-Salem State. Pearman, who did not practice Monday, has a sprained right knee, according to a team spokesman. Pearman will be re-evaluated prior to Sunday's match-up against Florida Atlantic.

Sophomore forward Steve Goins also will not play tonight for the Terrapins as he continues to deal with a lingering knee injury. Goins and Pearman have logged a combined 13 minutes this season, so these injuries likely had little effect on tonight's playing rotation.

Because proper finacial support is a necessary ingredient to elite success and I don't think D. Yow provides the necessary support. Maybe Gary is not very efficient with his budget, but I don't think so.

Maybe too it's because not all UMD fans take the rout petecard and I take, which is to expect greatness year-in and year-out and since the majority seem to take the other approach (that above average to average is okay with them) the administration and Yow don't feel quite the pressure to provide it's following with greatness year-in and year-out.

If you guys were half the fans me and Petecard are, maybe Maryland wouldn't suck every year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poopy - You are right in that you have to have those high expectations but we don't have the history of a North Carolina, Kentucky, UCLA or Kansas. Don't get me wrong, we're definitely up there and we do have a history and we need to push the championship but you earn that. It doesn't just fall into your lap. Gary has done a great job. Does he have some flaws, of course. What coach doesn't? But your expectations each year need to be realistic.

North Carolina might not expect anything less than a championship since they were the last team to do that but that's not realistic this year because of their youth. I think a realistic expectation for us this year would be a Sweet 16 birth and anything beyond that is icing on the cake. That's not to say I don't want a championship and think we should be shooting for that consistently but you have to be able to look at your team and make a true assessment.

I hate losing more than anything in the world and think we should win every game no matter what, but that's just not going to happen. But I go in with those expectations and hope that we do come out on top.

You call yourself a "DiehardTerp" but evidently not as diehard as me and Petecard. You accept mediocrity, while me and Petecard accept nothing less than final fours and national championships. And if your god Gary can't get us there, then it's time to move on to a REAL coach that can! This is what separate the fans like you from the real fans like me and Petecard.

If Gary doesn't get us to at the very least the final four this year or win an ACC title, it's time for him to take a permanent vacation over to bentleys. Adios Garyland!
