You know what really grinds my gears?

Ah, that info was not available to me.

Although that sort of deflates the argument anyway, if they reviewed it and came up with a .6 second runoff.

Oh, i honestly don't know...I left the TV for a second and next thing i know, there was 4.4 seconds on the clock. Didn't know why. Wasn't payign attention enough at the time.

But whatever, to blame is on the refs is a joke. Duke may have hit a longer shot at the buzzer or maybe they win in OT.

For Clemson to allow that to happen is a joke and that's why they lost and to put it on anything else is a joke(though typical stuff for this board).

Yeah, it is typical for a few to do that, you act like it's the majority of people and like it's mostly in regards to the Terps. I'm obviously going back to the other thread in the Terps section that revolved around this to formulate that opinion.

Yet, again, posters on here complain about O's and Ravens games just as much, and some fans of other teams do the same thing. This has nothing to do with Maryland fans or this website, it's basically like this with all teams.

Yeah, I honestly don't know how much time should have been left on the clock, would have to see the replay.

You are right, which is why i mentioned guys like you in the other thread, so it is obvious i am not talking about you guys.

And btw, how rare is it for the home clock(for ANY home team) to favor the home team? My guess is it happens alot but it is not always magnified.

End of the day, if Clemson stops the ball, none of this matters and it falls on them and for anyone to deny that is clueless and totally missing the point.

Yeah, Clemson screwed up, no doubt. I'm just tired of your attacks on the Maryland fanbase when most other fanbases are the same way regarding refs, including O's and Ravens fans judging by this site. Everytime one fan complains, doesn't mean you have to say something like "typical Maryland fan." When Ravens fans complain on here about the refs, and they do basically every game, I don't see you bashing them.

I don't recall seeing it every game like we normally do with MD games on here.

However, i also very rarely read Orioles game threads.

Haven't seen alot of it in Ravens game threads.(not saying it isn't there)

My problem with Terp fans(in general) is that MD has never lost a game because they just sucked or got outplayed. There is always something else. That is the impression i get from several people on here.

I think the refs were even brought up in the Miami lost...They shot 20% from the field and you feel the need to bring up the refs? Please.

It happens on Ravens and O's game threads quite a bit, I would say at a similiar rate as on MD threads.

Again, just like with every team, there are going to be fans who complain about the refs a lot, but I don't see any basis for generalizing the Terp fanbase like you do.

Find me one person who thinks MD has never lost a game because they sucked or got outplayed. I assuming that was just a huge exaggeration on your part.

Concerning the Miami game, I just looked through the thread, and one person mentioned the refs, that person being BTerp, the same person that seems to complain about the refs in most Ravens games including their last one.

Bottomline, almost all game threads which have a lot of particapation will have at least one person complaining about a call or the refs in general, that's just the way it is across the board, has nothing to do with Terps fans.

Maybe you feel the way you do because your a Duke fan, and MD fans along with all other ACC teams fans complain about the refs when going against Duke, especially at Duke. And a lot of that is justifiable. That brings me to another point, sometimes there are calls that are obviously wrong, should no one say anything about that?

Of course they should mention it and refs can effect the outcome of a game in a big way but still, it gets brought up too much by Terps fans IMO.

Gets brought up about the same amount compared to other fans including the O's and Ravens. It seems like you just have this perception in your head and then proceed to blow every complaint out of proportion. The Miami game is an example of that, there was 1 post complaining about the refs from a guy that you must see complain about the refs in Ravens game threads on a consistent basis, yet, you use that to support your viewpoint.

Again, maybe against Duke it gets brought up more than usual, that's it though, and there's often good reason for it.

in that same secton did you see the nerd when i looked like the team would lose?

My problem with Duke as a Md fan is there arrogance and it comes from the top, K and his little protage Wojo. Watch how they act,like they can do no wrong. Then ESPN and Dickie V do nothing but shill for them.

Ask G Arneas about K, he doesnt have anything good to say about him.

Arenas is just upset that he got cut and didn't make the US team.

He also said that if K called him and asked him to come play for him, he would. So, he doesn't have that big of a problem with him.

End of the day Gilbert, play some defense and you are on the team.

And i agree that ESPN and Vitale are annoying when it comes to putting Duke on a pedestal(yes, it even gets to me at times). But that is not the fault of Duke, coach K or anyone else affliated with Duke....Well unless you want to blame them for the enormous success they have had.

Set, shoot and make a 3 in .6 seconds? What are you talking about? I didn't see any of that(i didn't see the whole game)

BTW, .6 seconds is what you need for a catch and shoot.

That is what you need to adequately get the ball out of your hands. The ball can be in the air when the clock is at 0.0. I believe there should have been around 3 or 3.5 seconds left and it would have make a pretty big difference.

Who knows what happens in OT, just speculation. Sucks for Clemson, but they put themselves in that situation.

I still think Duke got a nice call there, but they made the most of it as well. They still had to make the shot, even though they had way too much time.

Clemson did get screwed with the clock, but there is no excuse for that defense at the end of the game. They made it really easy for Duke at the end there.

    • I love this Yasmani Grandal slash line: .121/.372/.288, good for a wRC+ of 108.  He’s basically been an excellent offensive catcher despite a .121 batting average and just 5 extra base hits. 
    • During telecast, Holt compared Don Cesar to Doug Jones and Big Ben agreed.  His "dead fish" was elevated close to the surface last night but most of the dead fish I have seen float pretty good.  🐟
    • Sorry about that.  All I can see is that someone did it - can't tell who.  
    • Love that a 6 IP, 1.00 WHIP (0 BB), 0 ER start in which he had a low pitch count and was only pulled for a pinch hitter in a situation that clearly called for it is so ho-hum / expected at this point  
    • Game 36, May 11 Defense arguably cost us this game in the 9th inning.    With one out and runners on first and second, Hays dove for a soft liner in the gap but came well short of catching it.   Mullins fielded it cleanly on a hop and relayed it to Urias, who turned and threw home well wide and past Severino while the runner scored from 2B.   The play was backed up, but the bad throw allowed Jonathan Villar, who had been on 1B, to advance to 3B with only one out.   With the infield in, the hitter bounced a grounder to Mancini, whose throw to Severino came in head-high and Severino’s tag was late.   If the throw had been knee high, it would have been very close at the plate, though I can’t say Villar definitely would have been out.  I’d also say Mancini’s throw was a bit fluttery in addition to coming in too high.    The first play was notable in several respects.   First, Hays’ dive was ill-advised, as he really wasn’t close to catching it.   Second, Mullins made the decision to relay the ball to Urias rather than throw directly home, which was probably the right decision given his weak arm (even his relay throw was a one-hopper) but an outfielder with a stronger arm might have been able to nail the runner at the plate.   Third, with Mullins having made that decision, it was a mistake for Urias to turn and throw home.   And then, his throw wasn’t good.   Even so, Severino might have been able to stop it from getting past him, though the play properly was scored as an error on Urias.   So all around, a very disappointing play.     
    • Man I hope it works out for this kid. He's so close.
    • Right. I used to prefer Hall because of his actual elite upside as a lefty. His control issues became more apparent as Rodriguez's upside started to emerge as elite too, so I flipped. I know elite's a word that we shouldn't throw around a ton, but the upside of these two is off the charts and they're at a better spot arguably than any group we've had here in a long time. Think of this list of misses and good but not great guys. Loewen was supposed to be awesome, but never performed. Matt Riley was hyped, but rushed and seemingly didn't have the maturity for the gig. Matusz was a top pick, but without elite stuff. Arrieta was pretty electric in the minors and was grouped with Matusz/Hernandez and others, so that was certainly a nice crop. Gausman didn't have the 3rd pitch. Harvey does have an elite arm was hurt almost from the jump. Even Bundy's crazy elite profile was tempered almost immediately by velocity drops and shoulder issues. Then there's Hobgoo..... These two have crossed time/stuff/performance hurdles that many of our other guys haven't. They're not here yet. They have risk, and Hall still does with command for sure, but they're the best top 2 pitching prospects we've paired since McDonald/Mussina, IMO.
