    Maryland can beat NC State. Will they? thats another question.
    if maryland wins just one, they better hope alot of other bubble teams dont win a game in their tourneys.
    2 wins puts them back in

    Maryland is so inconsistent though...they could come out and play like +%+! against NC State or they could blow them out

    UMD is really inconsistent, but I think Gary Williams will try his hardest to get these guys to play, because he is on the bubble.


    I know the ACC is up and down the east coast but its something different about it being in Atlanta.....it belongs in NC

    well you would think he would have done that against 2-win UVA.. [​IMG]
    really though, MD already beat NC State on the road and they should have no problem on a neutral court. but even if they did win, they would almost certainly get destroyed by Wake the following round. so yeah... NIT. [​IMG]


    that Virginia Tech-Miami is a good matchup. it will most likely serve as an elimination game for the tourney.

    they jusy played Wake and let the game get away.

    yeah, they played Wakeat HOME on senior night, and Dave Neal had the game of his life.

    on a neutral court, they would slaughter us.

    Please don't try to hop back on the fair-weather train if we do make the tournament.

    fairweather train? [​IMG] believe me... if i was a fairweather fan, i would have hopped off LONG ago, back when the NIT appearances first startedrolling in. i have supported the team in every game they have played this year, and i would be happy as anything if we did make the tournament.

    but i'm just being realistic. and reality says, this team has choked 4 out of the last 5 years when tournament hopes were at hand. and after that weak #!%performance against UVA with the season on the line, why should i actually believe that anything different will happen this year?

    but we'll see... beating Wake Forest with such a gap in talent would certainly be one of Gary's finest moments as a coach.

    ^ Gotcha. It just pisses me off to see a fan of any team write that team off before the season is over. You wouldn't be happy with the players if theyquit on us, so you shouldn't quit on them.

    With that said, I think it's obvious that Gary would love to make a run this year more than any other year (given the negative attention he's gottenthis season), it's just a matter of whether the players will play with the passion that Gary displays on the sidelines. Look at some of the gameswe've lost this year:

    @ Miami by 2
    @ FSU by 3 in OT
    vs. BC
    vs. Wake
    @ UVA

    Those are all games that we GAVE away. You can knock on our "lack of talent" all you want, but this team is capable of beating any team on a givennight. Hopefully the Terps are on they're game this weekend and don't take a dump. The good thing is, we control our own destiny. While teams likeCreighton and Davidson watch and wait, we can boost our resume by winning a few games and surpass some of the bubble teams. I absolutely cannot wait until thetournament begins.

    GO TERPS, Let's make an '04esque run!!!

    VT/Miami is basically a play-out game. i hope McClinton lights it up and leads Miami to a couple wins to solidify a tourney bid.
