What is this... a promo for the event? Selling seats on this blog? Oh, that's just great.

If they had a Hall of Legends for recruiting he would be staying home.

Pete,

You are a grumpy man with a sense of humor. You remind me of....Gary Williams.

Funny post, by the way.

Larry, good to hear from you.

I'm not sure many of my friends would call me "grumpy," but I am a demanding fan easily frustrated by the lack of a really strong commitment to being an elite program. I can live with (but not like) a football program that just never gets near the top, but basketball at Maryland should be different.

As you know I don't knock (rather applaud) GW's game coaching.

Pete,

The vibe I am getting from College Park is that Fridge and GW feel liberated with the exit of Yow.

I am convinced MD (and their B-W TV market)will be part of a 16-team Big 10 within 5 years.

The new AD will be an improvement over Yow, just from a morale standpoint.

It is hard for f-ball or b-ball to succeed at an "elite" level while trying to support a 27 team athletic dept.

Just have to wait and see what happens with the new AD.
