Wednesday links

Steve Yanda is on his way to Pasadena to cover the BCS title game, so in his stead (and now that our blogging-software issues have been resolved, knock-wood), here's some Terrapins/ACC links to tide you over.

In case you missed the news yesterday, Maryland sophomore forward Jin Soo Choi is leaving the team to return to Korea.

In happier news, senior guard Greivis Vasquez is one of 20 finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, given to the nation's top point guard. Joining him from the ACC are Virginia Tech's Malcolm Delaney and Duke's Jon Scheyer.

On to No. 18 Florida State, which travels to College Park for the Terrapins' ACC opener on Sunday evening. Corey Clark of the Tallahassee Democrat writes that defense has been the Seminoles' strong point this season. Florida State is allowing teams to shoot only 33.7 percent this season, the best mark in the nation. The Seminoles (13-2, 1-0 ACC), who have won seven straight, also rank eighth in the country in blocked shots and ninth in points allowed.

Wake Forest point guard Ish Smith does just about everything right -- except shoot free throws. He's shooting 43 percent. The Terrapins travel to Winston-Salem on Tuesday for their ACC road opener.

The Charlotte Observer breaks down the ACC as conference play begins in earnest.

Why would you include a link the the Charlotte Observer that supposedly includes a "breakdown of the ACC" but has no discussion of Maryland. This is the Terrapin Insider right?

Well MDFan this Terrapin "Insider" only talks about Terp basketball and football with nary a mention of any of the other sports at UMD.

Shoot the Terps soccer team gets more mention on Goff's Soccer Insider.

Terrapin "Insider"? hahahahahahaha

Exactly. This blog should be renamed the "Terrapin Outsider".

Poopy-
You hit the nail on the head with your comment. There are so many other successful sports programs at MD that never gets recognized in this blog. To compare this blog to Goff's blog is just not fair. Goff's blog is read by thousands of people across the US on a daily basis and covers all teams, just not the DC area. But I don't have to tell you this because I see your comments all the time on his blog. Hopefully Yanda can take some pointers from Goff in the near future.
