May you let your anger go and set you free. MD is awesome. Gary is King. Cool aid is my drink. Vasquez would be an All American if he had a front court.

Kim is a star, Mosely is a Star. Dupree will be fetching water for them soon. The future is bright I got to wear shades.

Apparently leading the ACC in assists makes you selfish, i guess that means that the whole team as well as Duke,UNC and all the rest are more selfish than him.

Like it or not, Vasquez is the emotional pulse of this team. He's a junior and leader of this team and i'd take him shooting over a freshman in his third game(covered or not). Look, if Vasquez was such an arrogant selfish prick like he is labeled, he would not be a captain. He's the type of borderline overpassionate sometimes obnoxious player that you're suppose to hate as a opponent and love when hes with you. Its to bad most people are so blinded by hate of him that you don't see that he is a great player who makes mistakes but mostly energizes this team.That shot, and his reaction energized the team and it played out in OT.

Why don't you look in the mirror and recite that rant you just gave us, because no one cares but you about your thoughts. I haven't seen one person praise Gary for this coaching job yet, there's nothing to praise. I will always enjoy watching the Terps and when they win, no matter how, I will celebrate it.
Thanks dude. Year in and year out I root for the TERPS minus the kool-aide. ANTI-GARY...go **** on T III's **** if you **worship** him so much! Nobody'd asking for you to crack an egg of basketball knowledge and it's obvious you hate UMD. Stick to the GTOWN blogs you POS. AND your cracks SUCK.

Look I am not going to talk about the kids on the team because no one on this forum recruited them and brought them here. Everyone in the country nows that MD will not win the NCAA title this year and that is fine, the question is will they get better, good enough to draw the attention of recruits that will get them there. Friday's win was a coaching win. Number one Braxton Dupree is a good kid but he is not a dominant center by any means so I won't expect him to get 15 points and 10 boards, if he does it's a bonus. Number two none of their low post players no how to use the glass Lonie Baxter was only six feet eight and killed bigger post players by using the glass, it allows you to play bigger against taller low post defenders. Number three the guards have to attack the basket constantly if not only to get fouls but to open opportunities for the kickout three pointers. If this is the kind of team we are going to have this year GW will have to maximize this teams talents and all his talent is on the perimeter. Last but not least GV has been called this and that this year but I have to say that dispite all that was said if you take him out of the three games this year we are 0-3. GV, Bowie, Milbourne, Tucker, and Hayes seem to be the only ones on the team that want to win the game not just play to stay on the court. I have a lot of hope for this years team because they are fighting from beggining to end but unless the front court stops playing like freshman and start playing like every game is their last they will have a long season.

What has been the biggest word used in college basketball the last 5 years??? It is PARITY, there are so many upsets every year, in the regular season and in the tournament. Vermont is a team who consistantly makes the tournament and this year is favored to do such that with a veteran team. Granted, we did our best, but this team found a way to win, that says a lot about their character.
For everyone criticizing Vazquez, you all have no freakin' clue about basketball. Look at his stat line, the guy does it all, scores, rebounds, assists, and makes clutch shots. If he was not on this team, we would have a losing season guaranteed, and we would have lost this game. Every great player takes bad shots, and tries to do a little too much, but would you rather have a scared player that is afraid to be just that. If you really don't like him, then just stop watching, nobody is making you watch him play.
Anti Gary, STOP WATCHING MARYLAND BASKETBALL!!! For the love of god, why do you continue to watch a team play that you hate so much. You really must have absolutely no life what so ever. If you hate Gary and every player on this team, find something else to do, instead of watch every minute and then just completely grill them on the baltimore sun message boards. Maybe they should hire your no life lazy **** to go out there and recruit, go into the depths of baltimore and find players or just SHUT THE **** UP!!!!
Lazy? No question I make two times the money you do chump? Lazy? Boy you just don't know. And by the way, your Terps are pathetic. And so is your coach. I bet I go deeper in the depths of Baltimore more than you ever will. Oh my bad, your sister does go to the the city and trick!!

I hope that you are not Bowers. If you are, your opinion will never matter. As you are one of those bums Gary gave a free ride to. If you were eligible this year, you might help Gary get 1 more ACC win.

Bye Gary. Elite programs don't give scholarships to Dave Neal, Braxton Dupree, and Dino Gregory. Elite programs also don't struggle against the likes of Vermont at home.
That said, I'm tired of a lot of people dissing Vasquez. Look, if Vasquez wasn't so high risk-high reward, Maryland would be even worse. Besides, he has to play like that since his supporting class is so pathetic.
YOU ARE RIGHT ON!!

Look I understand that the team is not at the elite level it should be but there is nothing that anyone here can do about it, so you just start attacking the first positive thing you can on this site about MD basketball. Yet everything you say can still never change the out come of what is going to happen to MD BB-ball this year. So like the team hate the team no one hear really give a s**t what you think so find something else to seem more pathetic than yourself. REALLY

I'm pretty sure someone with comments like these doesn't make a lot of money. Even if you do, I could care less, that doesn't change the fact that you are a complete loser with god awful comebacks "my sister tricks". Talking on baltimore sun message boards about a team and coach you can't stand is pathetic. There's a reason you're talking on message boards and not making decisions for any basketball team out there. There has to be more you can do with your time then ripping a team you hate.

gotta agree with the previous post. dude (eg. AntiGary), lighten up. it's only basketball. my guess is that if you have such sentiments about a diversion like college sports, your feelings towards humanity in general are downright misanthropic.
back to (un)reality...many have mentioned that vasquuz has the intensity that makes other teams hate him, but motivates his own teammates. what was the guy's name who played for nc state about 5 or 6 years ago that jacked blake (i believe)? his first two years were a little out of control, but he settled into the role of genuine leader and Terp tormentor. he was a small forward, i believe. anyhow, i imagine vasquez must have seen the tapes.

Right on! Notice how I got Bob from Towson/Manassas banned? Tag this loser's comments as offensive so he gets banned too. This Anti-Gary clown has got to go.

I guess Duke isn't elite either, since they squeaked by Rhode Island...

"Your Terps are pathetic"? Aren't they yours too? If they are not, why care about Gary Williams so much?
