Not feeling extremely confident against a Rutgers team that is 17-1 at home.

How can feel confident with the Terps in any situation? Haha. The only things consistent about this team are their awful starts and terrible 3-point shooting.

This is the worst shooting team I’ve seen in my life.  EVERY game we’re starting off 1-12 from 3pt range.  Teams can load up their defense in the post to prevent driving because they know we’ll miss a 3.  This team has been exposed.

What the hell was Turge thinking when he recruited Hakim Hart?  That is the ugliest shot in the Big Ten.  Turgeon’s recruiting has been very suspect for 2 years now.  Hart and the Mitchell twins was a complete failure and next year we have a low-end 3 star and an unranked played coming in.....🤦‍♂️

Yep, it's this year or bust because this team is going to be downright bad next year when Cowan and Stix are gone. Turgeon's recruiting has always been overrated if you ask me. His teams never have depth. He's good at getting that one two key guys but his team's always wear out late in the year because of all the minutes they have to play. 

Terps very well could pull this one out because they usually play much better in the second half, but it really is amazing how bad they shoot from 3-points yet Turgeon has nothing to go to besides letting Cowan drive and get hammered.

Maybe Turgeon is eyeing another job and has given up on recruiting?  Idk what other explanation there could be.  The fact that he hasn’t gotten a top 100 commit in consecutive years is just sad.  Even Northwestern gets top 100 guys.

Just checked and 247 now has Marcus Dockery as a 4 star and just outside the top 100.  He was previously a 3 star and ranked in the 250 range.

Good Lord, we can only hope. By the way, I hope Ayala is considering future work in the wall building business because he throws up a ton of bricks!

This game is over.  The Terps may fall ass backwards into the Big Ten title since MSU is losing to Penn State, but this looks like yet another Turgeon late season collapse.

As I said in the Michigan State thread, I wouldn’t be shocked if the Minnesota game ended up being the last win of the season.

That's coaching by the Rutgers coach. His player made a boneheaded move. Pulled him out. Nice job.

Look at how many open shots Rutgers has compared to everything Maryland puts up is contested. Why, because Turgeon's offense SSSSUUUUUUUCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKSSSSSSSS!

I hope the Terps do lose out so they don't win the Big-10 at this point. Then I hope they go one and done in the tourney and the Terps finally can Turgeon. I'm about done watching any Turgeon teams.

We’re going to get a 5 seed in the tourney and lose to a 12 seed mid-major that can shoot 3s.

Michigan State is now beating Penn State after being down by 20, I believe.  This team has choked away the outright Big Ten title and I have little confidence that they will get a share of the title.  They wouldn’t have even been in this position without 3 miracle wins, so maybe this team is just vastly overrated.

    • Uggh, I just found out my orioleshangout.com email is not working which is EXACTLY why we're in need of a regular system admin. If interested, please email me your resume at tonypente@gmail.com  Thanks  
    • Sam Haggerty will forever be the answer to a trivia question. I bet he’s so proud.
    • I will say after strikeout filled spring training, it's not a good sign to see him strike out in 5 of his first 10 AA PAs. I'll be honest, he has huge holes in that upper cut swing and I'm not sure why this hasn't been addressed at this point. They had all spring and alt camp to watch this swing and it appears to be a one plane upper cut swing with lots of holes.  He swings through a lot of pitches both fastball and curveballs. Maybe it's a timing issue, but his timing must have been off all spring so far because he was underwhelming in spring training and now has started off with a lot of miss. I've watched his PAs and they have mainly been against guys throwing 93 mph and above. Just something to watch as he continues.
    • Who knows, maybe the team picking second will go underslot! 
    • He turned a nice 3-6-3 DP in yesterday's game. Looked natural over there so its good to see he should have a place to play when they want to give him time off from catcher.
    • No, but he is literally paving his way every outing.  What he did yesterday was outstanding. This is pretty amazing.  The wild pitch not withstanding, it seems that the only thing missing was perhaps doing it in fewer pitches. I will say this, yesterday is a perfect example of why I am enjoying this year.  No there will be no WS for the Orioles this year.  But we have crossed through the channel of the horribleness that comes with a true rebuild.  From here we will get glimpses of better days as we see a foundation built.  I care not whether Severino continues and see no reason to bemoan him at all.  He is but a place holder as many of the current Orioles are.  I appreciate their efforts while we wait and I savor the days like yesterday.   John Means may not be extended or even kept for 4 years.  But he is a piece and he is going to either help us as a cornerstone or he is going to cost someone an a kings ransom.  That decision is not for me and not for today.  But TommyPickles asks a valid question.  John Means is not an "Ace" because he threw a No-Hitter yesterday.  But with every outing this year he is doing the work to earn the title.  Its fun.  I am loving it!!!
    • I doubt it will seem like that four years from now. Though the top 4 picks does seem to be coalescing around those 4. Still two months to go, a lot can change.
