Any Terps fans?

Postby Robert K. » Wed Jan 14, 2004 11:54 pm

I would've been hanging out here more tonight, but the MD vs. UNC game was close the whole way. :o

NFL football is my favorite sport to follow... but college basketball played at a high level (particularly ACC matchups) can be very exciting!

Go Terps! :D :P
Robert :D

Being a Maryland native I am a huge Terps fan. What a great game last night. The young team was able to pull out a big win last night. They have some tough games coming up real soon. Duke and Wake Forest are lurking.

No laughing here --- :oops: But.... What's a Terp? :hmm:

Not too up on my US College teams (Other than what I glean from Jeopardy!).

Thanks!

Talk about coaches, Gary Williams is a top-notch guy. Ever notice how the best college basketball coaches are humble, but intense guys. Coach K, Gary Williams, Pitino, new UNC coach (can't think of his name off the top of my head). You have your Bobby Knight's too but I would argue Williams, Coach K, Pitino are all much better coaches.

I love the Terps! Went to Lefty's b-ball camp way back when....and have followed the Terps both b-ball and football ever since. Agreed PS, Williams is a first class coach and a joy to watch. UNC's coach is the old Kansas coach...think his name may be Williams also, Roy Williams?

Terps Rock! My father son and I went down for the Gator Bowl this year. We were outnumbered by WVU fans 2-to-1 but by the end of the third quarter, it was all Terps baby!. To paraphrase Tony Kornheiser, combine football and basketball records for the past 3 years in Division I and there's only one team better, Oklahoma. They have their football chapionship, we have our basketball championship......btw, can we get Duke to change their mascot to the Duke Cowboys? Then I could just have one cowboys suck t-shirt!

haha I bet you guys aren't too excited to hear this but I am a hard core duke fan. By the way, they are currently ranked number 1 in the country, and the Terps aren't even in the top 25. I will enjoy hearing back from you!

Dokie! Screw Dokie! They're the pukes of college b-ball, with a fan base of front running bandwagoners. They do have a great coach, but that's all I'll give em.

Actually it's a turtle - check their mascot.

I was a huge Terp fan growing up in the DC area - John Lucas, Mo Howard, Len Elmore, Tom McMillan and all the great players/teams they had in the early-mid seventies. Remember the NCAA only allowed 16 teams back then in the NCAA tournament, and a lot of really good Maryland teams stayed home when they lost the ACC tournament - even after winning the regular season title. Etched in my memory is Lucas and other players crying on the bench after finishing in the top 10 nationally only to miss out cause of the 16 team rule (tournament winners). That really sucked. That was one major reason the rules regarding # of teams in tournament was changed.

It should be interesting with Tech and Miami moving to the ACC - neither brings much to the BBall arena, but I don't expect Duke to be winning many more football games anytime soon :)

It'll be interesting with the matchups coming up with the local flavors to 'em now - and the Tech UVa game might actually mean something more :)

Most ACC fans down here in the heart of ACC country aren't real thrilled with the new shakeup. It's all about the almighty dollar and football and will totally screw up basketball. We are so used to the head-to-head home/away matchups and with 3 more teams that will just make it impossible. So things change and not always for the better.
