Once up to speed, Maryland flourished in second half against Wolfpack

Senior guard Greivis Vasquez said the Terrapins grew "too comfortable" with the slow pace N.C. State dictated during the first half of Wednesday night's game. Part of that may have been because of Maryland's fatigue. Regardless, the Terrapins seemed out of sync on offense before the intermission against the Wolfpack. They shot 33.3 percent and made just 1 of 5 three-point attempts (20 percent).

"Nothing was good in the first half," Coach Gary Williams said when asked about his team's shot selection before the break. "Our timing in our offense, our defensive intensity -- so that was just a product of the way we played in the first half."

Maryland started producing better shots for itself in the second half once it was able to elevate the tempo and fluster N.C. State with its press defense. Williams said it helped that the Terrapins got more layups in the second half, and that's certainly true.

But Maryland's overall rhythm seemed to improve once its defense started forcing N.C. State to commit silly errors. The Terrapins appeared to shoot with more confidence, as if they expected their attempts to go in, rather than hoping that they would fall. Maryland shot 56 percent and made 4 of 8 three-point attempts (50 percent) after the intermission.

"It was real slow in the first half and they were able to do whatever they wanted to do," said junior guard Adrian Bowie, who drained two three-pointers during Maryland's second-half comeback surge. "They ran their offense at their speed, and that wasn't our type of speed."

Sorry barno but I'm not og-barno. As hugh pointed out yesterday, me posting early isn't happening. That post from og-barno was at 8:45 am here. I was sound asleep in my bed, all snuggled in with the dog and cat. Only reason I'm actually up now is because Fed Ed woke me up banging on my door to deliver a box of win (not box win, but a box of wine bottles mind you).

Also, I loved how yet again you are the instigator. Could've tried to keep harmony going but nope, you again had to be the instigator.

Loved my quotes too. Of course the ones about him not being able to both talk the talk and walk the walk was right on. He did stink it up last year when he ran his mouth about Cameron. Also my quote about him going to the NBA was right too since no NBA scout viewed him (at the time) as nothing more than a 2nd round pick, if that.

However, there is this nice quote of yours:

A gag order on Beavis Vasquez is long, long overdue. I love his play (when he is under control) but the crap he does after he makes a shot makes me embarrassed to be a MD fan.

Posted by: Barno1 | January 13, 2009 1:41 PM


So, barno, Vasquez's antics makes you embarrassed to be a MD fan. Hum, interesting no? You, being embarrassed to be a MD fan because of Vasquez. Seems like it's the pot calling the kettle black no?

Also it's funny that it's okay for Barno to be wrong in all of his predictions (skins, synder, cerrato, 'skins playoffs, Terps not going 2-11) because if you're a kook-aid drinking homer and you're wrong it's okay, because you're a homer.

Yet, if you are actually looking at things through reality and call 'em as you see 'em, and end up either right or wrong that makes you some sort of fakey-fan that is a bandwagon jumper.

Ah, gotta love it.

As for the game, amazing comeback and play in the 2nd half. Gary-The-God actually earned his paycheck last night by outcoaching Lowe. Hayes must've found my stash of old mushrooms or something because he stunk worse than some of the self-appointed private investigators and their sleuthing on here.

Glad to see they were able to overcome a double-digit deficit, on the road no less. That should build character come tournament time.

Atleast now with 8 ACC wins, we're already guaranteed to have a better ACC record than last year.

acebojangles, I work from home so I get to set my own hours. Usually at 8:45 I'm sleeping snuggled in bed.

Also, if you've been following the blog this week, I recently told Hugh that my gf was in Nebraska for 2 weeks for school. While there she bought some wine (for us and some for friends) and mailed it home. See, alcohol can be mailed to the state I live in (California).

So instead of trying to pack 6 bottles of wine into her suitcase and worry about it cracking and breaking and leaking in her suitcase and since you can't carry-on liquid on the plane anymore she Fed-Ex'd it home and it came this morning.

Also, I gotta love from few entries ago Barno1's Vasquez/racism post. It was typical Fox News antics too. The old "I'm not saying anybody is racist BUT........."

That's straight out of the Fox News playbook and if anyone saw John Stewart on O'Reilly last week you saw him call out Bill'O and the network for doing just the same.

Of course I think it's pretty obvious who the fox news followers/hardcore rightwingers are on here. They're the same kook-aid drinking bunch that want to shout out, drown out, and mock anyone that has a differing opinion. Same tactics Bush and Cheney used when they were in office.

And yet, section340304020302 here you are, commenting towards/about me rather regularly.

There's irony hidden in there somewhere.

Posted by: Poopy_McPoop | February 18, 2010 2:17 PM | Report abuse

Poopy,

Where to start?

First off, there is no doubt whatsoever that you are OG_Barno and claiming otherwise is just pointless. As someone on the DC sports bog mockingly said to you last week when you did it: "It must be Barno1's other stalker, Booby_McBoob." I honestly couldn't care less that you have to resort to those childish tactics, if you think impostering me is good for a laugh, by all means please continue.

Second off, for I guess the six or maybe seventh time, I am not a fan of Sean Hannity nor Glen Beck. Don't know how many times I have to point this out to you before you get it through your thick skull. I can see how a freak like you might see the entire world in areas of black and white, but I got news for you: there are conservatives out there who aren't in lock step with every conservative pundit on tv.

Third off, I stand by my stance that I'm in favor of a gag order on Vasquez before big games, and I stand by my statement that his shimmies are embarrassing to me. As I said before "you are not a bigot if you don't like the shimmies". This is not even remotely the pot calling the kettle black--though I can understand how it might be pretty difficult for you to find ways to call me a hypocrite, so sometimes you gotta reach a little (or in this case, a lot).

Forth, absolutely love how you are ignored your most foolish comment about Vasquez and the Terps being brought up (which you had asked me to do) in which you said Terps fans "are pitching major wood in your shorts right now but we'll see how you all are feeling come late Feb '10 when .500-Gary and the Terps are struggling to stay a .500 in the ACC." Hah!

Fifth, love how you keep pointing out my statement that 2-11 from the Terps football this season wasn't possible. As if ANY terp fan thought we might be 2-11 this year. Yeah, real damning statement you got there Poop. Piece of advice little guy: If you're going to try to effectively mock my predictions you're much better off pointing to my Redskins comments last year, they were much more outside the mainstream opinion of the team. Though on the Terp Insider, don't think too many people would find those relevant right now.

Last but not least, I know arguing/debating with you is completely pointless. You'll try to divert attention from all of my counterpoints and make some other idiotic comment in retort, ignoring every point I just made. This is your m.o., and why I have long believed there is no point in engaging with you.

You're right barno, you got me. I was off base with my .500 Terps this year. That what you wanted to hear? Of all these quotes you posted, that was the only one where I was actually wrong. Heavens to besty. You got me. That what you wanted to hear?

Other than that, what of my "damning" quotes were so off-base? Other than calling Gary-The-God a boozehound, none. And that one, while maybe not so nice, isn't totally off the mark, as there are legendary stories of Gary boozing it up (like that pic of him in Ocean City, or even the few times I saw him WITH MY OWN EYES at EJ's Landing throwing back drinks). But don't let facts get in the way of your agenda.

Atleast Vasquez doesn't make me embarrassed to be a Terp fan.

Secondly, believe what you want (and you will) but i'm not og-barno, not hypen-poop or anyone else.

However, I do think I'd get along very very well with those people who are posting under those names. Because we both get kicks out of you (and others) who get your panties all in a bunch over the fake/imposter posters.

I love you guys. You always get on your soap box and say "I don't/won't address so-and-so" and than do it on a daily basis. Not too long ago barno you said you were done addressing me but you never stopped. We actually had some good back and forth's lately. Priceless.

Finally, Barno, or section3202020, or anyone else for that matter wants too, how bout you fly out here to so-cal. Southwest has some pretty cheap flights, just as long as your not as fat as Kevin Smith. We've got numerous airports (LAX, Burbank, Long Beach, John Wayne, Ontario). I'll pick you up, and than you can lick, suck, massage, fondle, drool over my freshly manscaped nether-region.

And to think what with all the harmony and Simpsons talk I was starting to come around. What a fool I was. You're the same

The blog was in harmony but Barno couldn't have that. He had to go to his Karl Rove playbook of trying to divide and conquer.

And than there's this, posted by someone else who posts on this very website:

"No, my issue with Barno is the dripping sanctimony with which he confronts those who lack his passion and conviction. Rather than debate on the merits of an argument, he casts doubt about the loyalty of others, thus positioning his own loyalty as superior and, therefore, Barno, himself, as superior to the rest of us. The way he writes, it's not about him being right and you being wrong, it's all about him being better than you because his affection is so much more meaningful. It's not okay for Barno to be a sanctimonious jerk."

Poopy,

Why didn't you tell us who posted that comment about me being sanctimonious? Oh that's right, because it wasn't on this blog. It was on Redskins Insider, and it was written by a guy named PDiddy, who never stopped attacking me after he started a global warming debate and I called him out for not understanding the key issues of the debate. He was a global warming alarmist who simply could not stand someone questioning his claims.

Gee, a little context goes a long way. Not that someone that goes around posing as people he disagrees with would ever provide a little context in his attacks.

And no, I have no interest in debating global warming with you on this blog pal.

We've had wine from Arizona, Washington State, and since my gf was in Nebraska she wanted to get some local wine for us to try. Now, will it be as good as stuff from Napa? Who knows but we'll find out this weekend when we crack open a bottle.

It even happened last week when it was The Simpson's that brought us together.

Barno and I remind me of me and my brother. Growing up we'd beat the tar out of each other, said the most god-aweful things to each other, do anything to get the other one in trouble, etc.

But when push came to shove we knew we had each others back.

I'd almost venture to guess that's how Barno and I are. If we were actually to throw stuff out there we'd probably find we have way more similarities (Simpsons, dogs, etc.) than differences (how the Terps program should be).

Who knows.

Those are nice dogs dixon. One day we hope to adopt a pitbull. We also, one day hope to have enough land so we can have atleast one cow (a brown cow mind you, just so we can everyday say "how now brown cow?") and a horse.

Our current dog that I mentioned, our Jack Russell, makes me want to always have a JRT and at some point I want to get an Alaskan Malamute/husky type dog. Of course we'd most likely get that dog once we move away from So-Cal, since having a dog like that is borderline moronic with the types of hot summers we have here.

Back in Maryland, my gf's old boss had a dog that was 3/4 wolf and 1/4 husky. It was the biggest dog ever (seriously, a grown man could practically ride this thing) but it was the nicest dog on the planet and got along just fine with our JRT. Would be neat to have a dog like that (although this specific dog was illegal to have in MD).

Let me just say that I'm not really an advocate of any cable news channels whatsoever, but what I'm saying is that you spend a lot of time and energy projecting that how great it is to live in SoCal but yet spend an inordinate amount of time posting on this board to the point that you get irate when someone questions your posting identity as if being poopy on this board defines you. And it goes beyond being a fan because from what i can tell, you are so far removed from the reality of Terps bball and football programs. your opinion here is likely based on reading box scores or sports center highlights. You have no interesting or valuable insights about the team, but maybe it's not your fault. I'd be interested to know when the last time was that you actually attended a MD sports event. Maybe you're detached from MD teams and should find something else. Or just stick to watching cartoons.

Is that why i regularly post links to websites that show terp games (channelsurfing.net, justintv, atdhe.net) so people like myself, can actually still watch and follow the terps. Many times I'll hook up the computer to the tv so I can watch the Terps just like I would if I was watching them in my living room if I was still living in MD.

So no, there you're actually wrong.

As for the impostors, sure like others, at times it feels almost like a violation when an impostor posts as you and the minions and rubes of this blog can't tell the difference. Ultimately though it doesn't matter and that's why I've said I'd probably get along very well with the impostors because we all find it somewhat kinda funny too.

As for the last time I was at a UMD event, it was UMD/Miami football when the 'Canes came up to CP.

Since the Terps don't get out to the West Coast much I don't get much of a chance to see them. Does that somehow make me any less of a fan? It seem like to you games attended = fandom.

As for providing insight into any particular game, that's almost kinda pointless. It's pretty easy to repeat what analysts say and to come off as knowledgeable.

But I always say (if you go back through old posts) that, in terms of Terps basketball, if you limit turnovers and limit opposing teams offensive rebounds you'll win more games than you lose.

I'm definitely not detached from MD sports teams (whether that be UMD teams or just MD teams in general, 'Skins, Caps, Wiz, O's, DCU)

Finally, I can't lie, it isn't too shabby living in so-cal. From weather, to sports, to the music scent, etc. I definitely don't ever plan on moving back east unless it's to live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Barno/Garo, you are such a bore.

Poopy and I don't agree on everthing, but we do agree on what a gutless jerk you are.

I have to laugh at how you seem to feel that any topic you venture into is totally acceptable and everyone want to know about it, while at the same time you tell people things like... "this is no place to be saying this or that about this or that.

And it's also funny, your ego is so big, that you broadcast all your views about stalkers... even bringing in what others think about your stalkers. Your ego is so big my guess is that you are your own stalker.

Here is the bottom line Garo: Most of us don't give a rat's a*s what you think. We only know you as a pathetic koolaid drinker who spends a great deal of time 1) attacking anyone who disagrees with him 2) cuttting a pasting others' comments often out of context and usually gratuitously and 3) living in a dream world that the Maryland basketball program has been anyting other than mediocre for 6 stinking years.
