Eating Crowing and It Tastes So Delectable!

After my beloved Terps fell to 3-6 in the ACC, I had all but resigned myself to Maryland stumbling their way to a third straight NIT (see my "Everything New Is Old Again" post). Five straight wins later, including today's 89-87 upset of North Carolina, and the freshman PG's, Vasquez and Hayes, have Terp fans giddy about the years ahead, the seniors are playing the best ball of their careers, Gary Williams has more than silenced the vitriolic windbag fans who wanted him fired, and the team, for all intents and purposes, has locked up an NCAA bid. With two games left in the regular season--at Duke on Wednesday and at home against NC State on Saturday--my pre-season prognostication of a 9-7 finish in the ACC is well within their grasp. Heck, 10-6 isn't out of the question.

Now, I'm trying not to get ahead of myself. I don't think the Terps are going to make a run at their second national title or anything, but a Sweet 16 trip certainly seems reasonable. Regardless of when the Terps' season ends, they've made this season remarkably enjoyable, and that's all a fan can ask.

    It soothes my heart to see that the Terps beat the Dukies again after watching A&M lose in a classic slugfest with Texas. Fear the turtle.

    A&M is the real deal, though. They're going to be a tough out in March. Law is just ridiculous!
