ACC TOURNAMENT OPEN THREAD: Maryland vs. N.C. State

By Matt Bonesteel

Good evening.

It's game time. Maryland takes on North Carolina State in the first round of the ACC tournament. The Terrapins need a win tonight (and tomorrow, and Saturday, and probably Sunday).

The floor is yours in the comments.

Up 9 at half, should be up 25. We have to be much crisper against Duke tomorrow if we stand a chance.

Seems like Stoglin is rattled after missing that initial layup after a slick move to get wide open. Hopefully he gets that stroke back after the intermission.

Fun listening to Len Elmore and Mike Patrick mock the HOGs on ESPN2 right now.

Larry, if you are right, I will go back in my hole and disappear again, .........

Since nobody likes having to go back in their hole and disappear, this pretty much proves that CM is happier when UMD loses.....yep a real quality fan......I bet he is a real riot on the board of the school he actually attended and played sports for.....We are so glad you picked UMD to suckle up to! NOT

Good win for the Terps! 1 down and 3 to go! I guarantee if we lost the game, CM88 would have already been on here...gloating and ripping Gary....now after the win , he doesnt have much to say....I guess he will come on later and bring up the Reid article some more...

Cheers to You, CM88!!!!! Heres to at least 3 more years of misery for ya!!!!

"Barno, We ARE toast. You think beating NC State means anything? Why not just deal with the bottom line: We are going to miss the tournament this year for the 4th time in 5 years. Unacceptable. Gary's responsibility." -Petecard

One of my favorite Terps Insider comments from the 2008/09 season. Of course we went on to beat Wake Forest the next day and made the tourney. Not saying it's going to happen again this year but if Peter the Hate thinks we've got no shot, that bodes well for the Terps.

3 more wins to go. I said yesterday or 2 days ago we were gonna win it all.

I'm fully converted to the Church of Gary. Hallelujah!!!!!

We beat Duke by 20+ tomorrow. Book it.

Off topic, Barno, I so wanna hear your thoughts on the recent Bog postings about Cerrato (the Kindergarden Ninja) and his quotes where your boy (who you defended a good, good bit) takes no responsibility for the Redskins stinkness when he was there, while blaming everyone from here to Djibouti except himself.

Poop, I commented on a couple of those bog pieces. It's impossible to defend Cerrato's comments. He's out of line attacking Zorn. And he looks silly taking no responsibility for any of the Skins' failures. I'll always think he had a good eye for talent, but as far as putting together a team...he showed he's not GM material. And as far as personality goes, he's really come off as a d0uche in these interviews. It's embarrassing to follow.

Just remembered that superfan Petecard said he wouldn't be watching the Terps tonight. Or tomorrow night against Duke. If we win both of those games and make it to the semis on saturday then Pete might tune in. But as far as how we get there? Well, as far as Petecard is concerned, we might as well be playing Longwood on a wednesday in january than duke on a friday night in March...makes no difference...since we aren't winning a national title this year. Right Petey?

Nice win tonight. If they beat Duke but lose in the semi's, I'm good because at least they sent them home. CM88 must be pissed because as a fake Terp fan and a tool he hates to see them win.

And Barno and Poopy, I hate to break this to you guys but the Skins suck. Please keep the talk about little danny boys team confined to RI.
Thanks.

I love how all the little dbags, Section Barno and TerpfanMA come out after a huge win over that powerful NC state team. Meanwhile, only one of them could answer a simple question regarding an article, since the others where to retarded to, the one answer from Section was that it is a conspiracy theory by the Wash Post, and yes Gary may have done a bad job of recruiting, but oh well....great fans you guys are, again, loving the coach more than the team, cute crushes you guys have :)

DBAG #1, Terpfan, actually I said I would disappear because I care about the team more than the coach, but I guess you where too stupid to read or cut and paste that part, but good job lying and pretending again. Actually, I didnt come on here, because who cares if we beat NC State, it does nothing. If we beat Duke, then I will be happy and excited, if we lose, end of season, I dont really care about the NIT, eventhough you guys do and will spin is some pathetic way that I am not a fan.

DBAG #2 Barno, funny you should bring up the Skins, because in the other posting you mentioned you would be happy if we beat Duke and it would make your season,,,sounds like a typical loser fan that is ok with just beating Dallas and not going to the playoffs, again. Sound familiar underachiever/loser. Wow there is a great fan, someone that is ok with an NIT as long as we beat Duke...how old are you???? Btw, great job disappearing when the article came out and not addressing any of the truths, but now your back when we beat NC State, wooohooo, big accomplishment for you underachieving fans!

DBAG #3 Section....yeah, I only sit on here all year and hope for wins and then when we are going downhill, I ask for a coach that will try to recruit and get as back to the level we fans want. But I guess, getting pissed and laughing at Gary's pathetic coaching means I dont love MD??? Once again, you make such great points, moron! Didnt you just say Skins suck because of Snyder??? And I cant say the Terps suck because of Gary? Guess what, I am a Skins fan and a Terps fan, but we need new leadership for both teams, sorry you are too dumb to see that.

Great article today Ried!

Go Terps, hope we beat Duke and sweep the ACC so we can get into the NCAA's!!!!

Sorry, but being ok with the NIT's for a 4th year is for loser fans that accept failure...ie. BARNO, TerpfanMA, and Section

Congrats on being happy for being losers!!! :)

cm88, you make too much out of Jason Reid’s column. It’s not like the column is this big investigative piece. It’s just a rehash of Gary pros and cons, probably taken from blog postings. When you take out the fluff, Reid's opinion seems to be this: Gary should break the rules. Agree or not, this is what got us the sanctions under Bob Wade.

Let me set the record straight. No way does TerpfanMA deserve being lumped in the group with Barno and Section. He does believe GW should be able to coach for life, but that's about all I can fault him on. He is a straight shooter. Isn't it funny the way Barno brings up old quotes when it works for him and not against him? As this season totally unraveled he made one stupid prediction after another and it's as if id didn't happen. A win against NC State makes everything in the world right? Give me a break. Now, most important, Barno actually liked the totally lame defense of Gary blather that Elmore and Patrick put forth. It was sickening. Reminded me of the type of commentary that comes from MSNBC and the NY Times. You know, as long as they are one of us the facts don't matter. We will simply drown you in our bull s***. But Barno liked it... :)

Time to break the streak of losing to good teams. Otherwise this will be one of the most disappointing Terp seasons in recent memory (nowhere near as frustrating as McCray failing out). Beat Duke. Beat Duke with the bench. Live to play Saturday.

Mr.balls, I am not taking too much from the article, it seems like a very fair article that praises what Gary once did and was able to do, but he is now stuck in his stubborn ways and is failing...its exactly how I and others feel. He once did a great job, but because of his laziness/stubbornness, he is failing. It has nothing to do with cheating, many coaches do not cheat and are still able to get the top players, thats just one of his many excuses, like that he doesnt want the one and doners, etc.

Great win last night, I hope we can upset Duke, that would be fun to ruin their ACC.

Great win last night? Your fellow HOG Petecard doesn't think so. Pete thinks last night's win was "pitiful" (even though he didn't watch).

Feb 2nd, 2011. Our key game of the year. Two freshman PG's, adominant sophomore big man and a smothering defense hand Duke it's second straight loss and catapult the Terps into the national spotlight. Terps go on to a 4/5 seed and make the Sweet 16 for the first time in 8 years. They may even go a little deeper. Look to the future boys...

Barno, that was clearly in a period of hopeful enthusiasm. What about your quotes? Are we not worthy of their reposts? As you know, I did watch the game last night. That's why I commented on it. It was ugly and if you couldn't see that than you weren't watching...

When Petecard does it it's called "Hopeful enthusiam" when someone else does it it's called "one stupid prediction after another". Gotta love Petecard and his hilarious hypocrisies.
