This has been one of the worst refereed games I’ve seen this year as far as ticky tack fouls.  Let them play!  Such an irritating game to watch.

It's infuriating because they flip flop between calling ticky tack fouls and letting them play through a ton of contact.  No consistency.

Stix was totally awful today.  Worst game he’s played in months.

You don't think it has something to do with Wesson having 70 lbs on him and being allowed to play with 9 fouls?

That probably has something to do with it.  IIRC, he didn’t play well last time we played OSU.

Stix struggles with good big bodies around him. Tough game for him but they weren't looking for him at all in the second half. Typically Turgeon offense and throwing up 9000 3s when behind instead of slowly eating away at the lead. Saying that, Stix struggling and not being much of a factor and the biased tic-tac refereeing was a combo MD couldn't over come.

Makes me wonder about his NBA future.  Is he going to be able to compete with guys who have 50+ lbs on him?  He’s an ok 3 point shooter but nothing special.

Give some credit to Ohio state though, they played well, hit their free throws, and were the better team today.  Games like this remind me not to get too excited over the Terps this year. Too much parity in college basketball and MD will always be an up and down bi polar team. You might get the Terps that can win the National Championship or you may get the team that beats a team with a sub-.500 record by one point.

He's still young, but he's a stretch-4 being asked to be a center because the team has no front court depth.

He's playing at the 5.  He's probably an NBA stretch 4, especially if he improves his shot.

I don't think he's a star in the NBA though.

The 3 ball got the Terps back in it.  Wesson being allowed to do whatever he wanted in the paint by the refs kind of took away any sort of post game for the Terps.  Not to take away from his basketball skills, he's also really good, but when you're good and have the refs on your side, there's not much you can do.

    • 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. 
    • o   Young man, you're no Walter Johnson.   o
    • 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.
