Pretty much an embarrassment of a performance, but not unexpected. Watch the Terps won't win the Big-10 tourney and will be out before the Sweet 16 once again. 

It is what it is and it is what it will always be as long as Turgeon is coach. Same story, Poor on the road, long stretches of having no idea what they are doing, no depth and players that lose their cool because they can't control their emotions. This is just a Turgeon team that caught a few programs like Michigan State in a down year.

Cowan getting tackled on every possession yet can’t get a call.  You can’t blame him for the technicals.

How in the world did he do anything with his butt on the floor, 5 feet away from every other player?

At some point he has to realize everytime there is a little contact on a drive it's not going to be a foul. For a senior, he sure hasn't acted like a senior of late.

After seeing the replay, he wasn’t fouled there.  He’s been on the floor a lot tonight, though.

I guess I missed something, but that was it, he was yelling for a foul to be called at the refs?

He's always on the floor which is why he's no longer getting fouls, even on questionable plays. He's need to man up, act like a senior, get up and run back down court and let Turgeon battle with the refs. I get the feeling that although he can hit some really big shots late in games, he's a bit of an adversity mental midget.

That's what it looked like to me on the replay.

I don't why I keep having to tell you guys, but this is a second half team.  Has been all year.  

Terps will make a 2nd half run.  And I put my money where my mouth is.  I've done well betting Terps 2nd half odds this year 😁

I agree with you, I expect them to make a run.  They always do.  But will they overcome a 16 point deficit?  The odds are not high.

Yea, I did not see him getting fouled at all on that play at all.  And I agree he needs to be more mature at that point, poor senior leadership.   Leave the complaining the coach.

They need to play super hard on defense and cannot miss the easy put backs and other buckets.   They were due for a let down, just need to finish strong and be hot coming in the tourney(s).

Don't see it with 3 fouls on Stix. Shooting should pick up by default but too steep a hill.

    • 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.
