Skerry will be gone at Towson after this year. Someone is going to hire him for a major job. Guaranteed.

What are on basing this on, his current 7-6 record. Skerry isn't going anywhere after this season. You should probably wait until he wins something first before making a guarantee.

Why do you keep posting this?

Because Turge did not want him....And he is a real, honest to God point guard. Even next year, Turge will have almost no decent big men, no pure point guard and a bazillion combo guards.

Turgeon will never turn this program back into a perrenial top 25 team. Whatever he's doing, his team does not show up on too many occasions and his recruits are starting to less and less exciting.

Where did you get that Turgeon didn't want him? He split as soon as Williams retired.

Turge chased him off for Allen. Turge had been on Allen hard before he accepted the Md job.

As soon as Williams retired, Gibbs wanted to be released from his offer. Although Turgeon did recruit Allen while he was at Texas A&M, I doubt Turgeon would have chased Gibbs off with the few scholarship players he had during his first year.

Turge went hard with Len and Faust ----less effort on Anderson and no effort on Gibbs because of his preference for Allen. Faust, Anderson and Gibbs asked for their release and it was up to Turge as to how hard he went after them. Gibbs actually floated for a while before committing.

Are you going to throw Martin Breunig's name at us, too? He was another Gary recruit who left when Turgeon arrived. He scored 37 points in 2 years and is off to Montana.

Let's also remember that Gibbs is at his 3rd school, so Texas fanned on him as well.

Turgeon has enough problems right now - Sterling Gibbs isn't even on the list right now. Let's get him some offensive plays and substitution patterns first.

I'm pretty sure when folks were calling for Gary Williams' head, I made a comment to the effect of "be careful what you wish for." Yeah, it was probably time for Gary to step aside (and I thought he handled that well), but coaching at a big-time program ain't as easy as it looks.

I totally agree with. As always when calling for somebody to move on, you have to stop and think the replacement might not be better.

Being a top level college coach has to be hard, given that a majority of your top is more recruiting than coaching. For a college as Md, with a bit higher standards academically than some others, that doesn't help.

But, its hard to compete with the name school like Duke, Ky, UCLA, and many others, those schools dont have to recruit, they just have to open the door.

Then, you thrown in the fact that its a state school, and not as big as budget as some of the other top NCAA level 1 schools.

Maryland is a great job. He has plenty of assets to work with. His recruits haven't turned out to be as good as advertised. His best players make the same mistakes over and over again. I like Turgeon, but he is not getting it done. He better have a hell of an ACC season. Others can do better with the so called limits of our program.

Why does Shaq Cleare start still? Why does he even play? He cannot even catch the ball on the limited instances that he puts himself in position to rebound or catch a post pass.

I am not asking this team to compete with UCLA, Duke, or Kentucky, but we should be able to compete with Boston U. and other such powerhouses.

What makes people think Maryland can hire someone better than Turgeon? UMD hasn't made the tourney since 10' and for the first time since Wade was coaching in the 90's Turg has put a fence around the DMV area. Not to mention Turg has an 8 yr contract and a ridiculous buyout. I understand the frustration but the future of Terps basketball is still bright.

Do you have any evidence to back that up? So far the group that Turgeon has brought in has a low basketball IQ, he can't recruit a point guard (Allen is a 2 guard also), he hasn't developed anyone yet, and he refuses to admit his recruiting failure by putting Cleare back out there game after game. Cleare is so bad, so bad.

I know we say the future of the program is bright, but even when I see that we've got the #10 recruiting class coming in next year, 3 of our 4 players are guards. That leaves us with:

3 combo guards running point (Allen/Peters/Trimble)

2 freshmen shooting guards (Wiley, Nickens)

2 inconsistent, out-of-control wing players/emergency point guards (Wells/Faust)

2 "stretch 4s" that get killed on defense (Layman, Smotrycz)

3 below-the-rim bigger guys who are limited (Mitchell, Cleare, Graham)

2 taller athletic projects (Dodd, Reed)

I don't have the confidence that Turgeon would be able to manage 14 people well (or even 12 if a couple of players leave), and they're all redundant.

    • With the the number 9 hitter Gio Urshela starting off the inning, and then the two left-handers at the top of the lineup, Hyde brings in Left -handed reliever Richard Bleier to pitch the 7th. Bleier does his job and gets three straight groundball outs. Though Hays led the inning off with a single, the Orioles went quietly afterwards.

    • Buoyed by his big strikeout, Hyde surprisingly let Cobb to go back out for the 6th. The Yankees though finally got on the board when Luke Voit smacked a one-out home to left center off Cobb to make it 5-1 but Cobb gout the last two outs, ending his game. Cobb allowed one run on seven hits and walk, while striking out six. Otero got the Orioles 1-2-3 in the bottom of the inning.

    • Cobb has kept the Yankees off the board, but the Yankees had run his pitch count up to 74 pitches so manager Brandon Hyde started to warm up Miguel Castro in case Cobb gets in trouble with the heart of the order coming up. Sure enough, the Yankees were able to put runners on 1st and 3rd with a walk and a two-out single by Torres. At 95 pitches, and one out away from being able to pick up the win, Hyde had a tough choice to make with Stanton coming to the plate. With Castro ready and watching, Hyde decides to let his veteran face Stanton. Stanton runs the count to 2-2 when on his 100th pitch, Cobb gets Stanton to swing and miss on knucklecurve to end the threat. In the bottom of the inning, Tanaka got two quick outs before Nunez took a 1-0 fastball and deposited just to the left of the scoreboard in RF for his second home run of the year, pushing the Orioles lead to 5-0. That ended Tanaka's outing as the Yankees brought in reliever Dan Otero. Sisco met him with a single but Davis flew out to end the inning.

    • Ruiz stays hot The Yankees put together a two-out rally to put runners on 2nd and 3rd after an Andujar double, but Cobb got LaMahieu to line out sharply to Hays in center field. The Orioles were back on to their scoring ways when Rio Ruiz smacked a two-out double down the right field line that Mason Williams was able to score on from 1st to make it 4-0.
