Morning links: Busy Wednesday with Maryland-Duke, Signing Day

By Matt Bonesteel

Good Morning. Happy Signing Day. Happy Maryland-Duke Day. Happy Groundhog Day. Anything else going on? (scans Wikipedia) Happy 34th birthday, Shakira!

Maryland-Duke links first:

Liz Clarke has a look at how Maryland is trying some novel approaches to keeping things orderly tonight, both before and after the game.

Release the hounds: Mike Wise ponders why everyone hates Duke.

Over at The 68, Eric Prisbell looks at how Maryland can make the NCAA tournament even without a win over the Blue Devils.

The Raleigh News & Observer looks at how Duke is trying to bounce back after its humbling loss to St. John's on Sunday.

Steve Yanda has an in-depth look at Randy Edsall's recruiting philosophy, and whether he'll need to amend it now that he has a higher-profile gig. Yanda has more on Edsall's recruting efforts here. Edsall scored a win on the recruiting front by persuading Bowie High's A.J. Hendy to keep his commitment to the Terps.

Be sure to check out for all your DMV Signing Day needs. Their Twitter feed is humming along.

I know today is Terps focused, but I really want to hear Barno's reaction to the Snyder lawsuit. Dude defends all things Danny, and I'm real curious his take on this one.

I'll just copy/paste what I wrote to Steinz last night:

Um, what the hell is Snyder thinking with this threatening the City Paper and the Post?? Never pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel!
I know you can' t comment, but just know that everyone will see his threats are baseless. I hated that McKenna piece probably just as much as Snyder did, but there is nothing in it to sue over. And as for a "coordinated effort" to cross-promote, give me a freakin break. That's what the full disclosure was for. You said you guys were close friends, end of story.

Sorry that you gotta deal with this.

Does Snyder not realize that this action only draws MORE attention to the piece which is now 3 months old?

If he should sue anyone it should be his PR advisors and his legal councel. Just an awful decision on their parts, no reason to pursue this course of action. At the end of the day, Snyders biggest failing by far is the way he deals with the media.

Good point. I had totally forgotten (I don't even think I read) the initial story but now, thanks to Danny Boy I have read it.

Maybe him and Peter Angelos have the same guy doing PR for them. 2 total morons.

As for Terps football, it'd be nice to have us get like a Top-5, -10 ranking for recruits something. One can hope.

As for the game tonight, everyone should load up on D batteries to chuck at Nolan Smith and Singler.
