I have wondered during the past month, as the Terps have revived their season.... how long can 5 guys keep up this pace, with practically no help from their bench?

I saw 5 guys that may be mentally and physically worn down, as they play 35 minutes a game - needing to rely on so much energy, so much hard work, to play sturdy defense and consistent offense.

This may be a rough week or so.

Even if the Terps did make the 'Big Dance', they would not get very far. Their inconsistent play (beat UNC) but lose to American and Ohio has been a killer all season long.

I wish the Terps the best anyway.

The Terps are so easy to predict...it's sickning. I'm an idiot for not finding a bookie and raking in the easy dough. Maryland always do the OPPOSITE of what people expect. I knew that as soon as Joe Lunardi and the rest of the "bracket experts" put Maryland in their final 65...they were going to start loosing again. That has ALWAYS been the deal with the Terps. I knew we would start saying, "hey, we're in...we got this thing in the bag" - and then wammo bammo: L-city.

After the Va. Tech debacle, no one is probably expecting them to win a road game against red-hot Miami...which is exactly what will probably happen.

I'm with you..... the Terps always look terrible when playing Miami and are something like 1-4 vs. them since they came into the conference 0-3 on the road....(who knew the `Canes would own us??)...anyhow we are sucking wind right now, we just got swept by a so-so VT team that was absoluely hammered the game before visting Comcast, but.... but.... but....... somehow i expect the Terps to win tomorrow.... we gotta win there sometime, it might as well be tomorrow...

Go Terps !
