Maryland @ Penn State

Recommended Posts

I'm glad for the win...but the pre-game handshake snub was BS. Edsall should suspend his three captains for one game each. (They're not going to beat Michigan State anyway)

I've never heard of a penalty for not shaking hands before. And not that I agree with what the Caps did at all, but PSU players seemed to be the ones jawing and chirping at Terps players during warmups and initiated that whole skirmish. That would be my guess for the whole no respect thing.

Emotions obviously ran high and those boys were definitely pumped up. I can see why everyone was so chippy.

I was born in 1961, which was the last time the Terps beat Penn State. Yeah, baby, now two wins in my lifetime:D

I was born in 1961 too. Now I feel old and depressed. Thanks for the info.:wedge:

1 game suspension? Okay B1G. Michigan's rapist kicker got nothing, but don't shake hands when you're the new team in the conference? Blasphemy!

To be fair it was really for Diggs shoving the ref in the face.

Really? That seems odd to me. Is there a film of that? It is hard for me to believe that a player that shoved an official in the face would not be disqualified from that game. Are you saying that he shoved an official and was not ejected?

There was the pre-game scrum and an official was trying to separate the players-

Diggs shoved the official inadvertently or so it appeared as other players were between Diggs and the official.

It wasn't that bad, but he still put his hands in a ref's face.

Wow. Ref looking right at him, too. I'm surprised that he wasn't disqualified.

Wow- I had only seen it in real or replay time and thought there was more of a 2 team scrum----thought it was less of a deal then this video.

    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
    • I wonder if he had a velocity spike his junior year and if that would make it less likely for him to have untapped velocity?
