Maryland vs. Northwestern

Recommended Posts

37-25 at the half.  Maryland ends the half by putting on a passing clinic followed by a Stix jam.

Penn State lost, so if we win this we have a 1 game cushion.  We'll probably need it given the rest of our schedule.

Big Ten basketball doesn't have tiebreakers, so we would actually have a two game cushion for a shared Big Ten title and a one game cushion for a non-shared title.

Apparently MD felt like they had this game won and came out flat in the second half. Not surprising really. This should be a blow out game but that's not a Turgeon run team staple now is it? 

They'll win this, but this has become a dogfight as just about everyone but Stix has decided to take an early breather.

You know, besides about 10 minutes in the second half, they played really well tonight. Stix was absolutely a beast with 22 points and 19 rebounds tonight. 

Two game lead with Penn State's loss tonight, but a real tough last five games. Let's see what they got.

You know, as good as the Terps looked for most of the game, it's a bit unnerving that we played well for the most part yet couldn't put a 1-13 NW squad away.  Maybe it speaks to parity in the B1G, maybe NW had a really good game, but when we play decently well vs a bad team and it's not a laugher, it's no wonder why Maryland has about the most pessimistic fanbase of the top-10 teams.

I do think teams play their A games against us, but special teams typically put a stomping on these kinds of teams. This is a weird team though, but until they win the Big-10 conference and make it to the elite 8, I'm going to be skeptical.

Took my nephew to his first ever MD game tonight.     The closeish game kept him in it the whole time.     That’s the only positive I have.   They definitely fell asleep at the wheel for a while.

The other bright side is that the Terps continually show the ability to "turn it back on" when they need to when things get close. It would be nice if this team could focus for all 40 minutes. Saying that, Northwest did play very well during that span which highlighted even more.

Some of this is a lack of quality depth.  Turgeon pulled Stix I think when we were up 14, and NW proceeded to go on like a 9-2 run in about 4 minutes before Stix went back in and said "no" to NW.

 

BTW it dawned on me that your nightmare scenario must be for the Terps to lose to PSU in the B1G championship, then lose to PSU again in the national semifinal or the title game. 😝

I told my Son the other night it would be nice to see them play an entire game. That said, they are doing pretty good. We'll see what happens.

    • Well, the Orioles got off to a terrible start in what is hopefully Elias' final tankathon season. They owned the 28th pick in the 2022 MLB draft upon leaving Boston. However, they've now rallied up to the number four pick, just two games behind Colorado. The Elijah Green sweepstakes are under way!
    • Of course I knew him but I never watched him. I thought those cartoons were stupid, even as an 8-year old. Tom and Jerry too. But the Warner bros gang were brilliant.  i was very fond of Mighty Mouse, too. The artwork was stunning.
    • Dont hold you're breath.

    • I think a fan with a certain bit of refinement should understand that prospect rankings are not definitive statements on the health of a player development system.  What the O's need to be able to do to win consistently at the ML level is find and develop players better than their peers.  Taking Rutchsman doesn't actually resolve that issue.  Whiffing on 1-2 doesn't resolve that issue.  Neither does losing 100 games a year.  That issue is resolved in improving the O's processes in finding and developing amateur talent.  So if you want to criticize Elias or the rebuild, criticize that.  The fact that the O's stink in 2021, or 2020, or 2023, was predestined several years before it happened. You hit the O's biggest organizational failure on the head: The failure to develop quality pitching.  I've said this before and I'll say it again: The reason so many highly ranked minor league arms fail here and go on to do better elsewhere in some cases is because pitching for the O's is the most difficult pitching environment in the big leagues, and I don't think it is close.  Based on who and where you pitch, this is easily the worst place to pitch in the major leagues, other than maybe Colorado. So if Elias doesn't solve that particular riddle, he is mostly likely to fail.  I don't think he's infallible.  It's very possible he does fail.  But I'm not going to get up in arms about the O's being shit 2 and a half years into what I takes twice that time to favorably construct.
    • Those high rankings were almost solely the result of picking in the top 5 AND some good trading by MacPhail- who actually had a ML asset or two when he arrived unlike Elias. It was not a testament to the Orioles ability to find and develop players though. Before we go down this road, I think I should clearly state we don't seem to disagree.  I said 3-5 years.  You presented the Mariners as an example of doing it in 3 years.  Even if I accept the premise that they did what you say, that fits into the window I provided.
