Maryland at Illinois

Recommended Posts

First place in the Big Ten on the line tonight at 8 PM on FS1.

Illinois is a 3 point favorite.

Another tough matchup for Jalen Smith, as Kofi Cockburn, Illinois' 7'0" center is their key player, he is averaging 14.0/9.2.

Cockburn was held to 9/8 in their first meeting in December, a 59-58 Maryland victory.

I am looking forward to another good game.

I'm not good at analyzing post positioning, is Smith getting bullied out?  My first glance is that we're just getting terrible bounces off the iron, and Smith is sliding over to help defend a drive to the basket and leaving himself out of position.

I'm not sure if we can go with a 4 guard lineup vs Illinois, their post players are a bit too good for that.

I don't know why you guys are still surprised when Terps start slow.  That's kind of their MO.

Just finish the half strong.  Terps are a second half team.

The Terps didn't start slow.  They're actually playing pretty well offensively.  Illinois started off red hot.

I've got a good feeling about this game.  We took a pretty big punch in the mouth, from both the horrible officiating (stupid as hell double-T for nothing) and from Illinois hitting some nutty shots.

    • I like Hays in left and Mullins is center.  Hays does not seem to dive as much in left.  Keeping Hays healthy is key and if playing left keeps him on the field that is what I would do.
    • Who had Aaron Boone in the 2021 managerial Deadpool? 
    • Interesting historical fact... That clip in the Blues Traveler above... the two steam engines slamming into each other at high speed. That really happened. Caused a real tragedy. The Union Pacific RR or Southern Pacific of the 1870's-1880's, I forget... They were going to decommission/scrap two old Engines. So they figured... they might as well make some money off it. So they SOLD TICKETS! Fired up the two steam engines on the day, and ran them headlong into each other at full speed. They miscalculated... when the trains hit each other, boilers at full steam 212+ degrees... they sprayed rivets and metal fragments for MILES. ALL over the assembled crowd who BOUGHT TICKETS. Don't remember if anyone died but many, many bloody injuries. A tragic scene. All for the cause of a bunch of RR whores trying to squeeze every dollar out of every situation they faced. Capitalism at it's BEST!
