Bob Haynie had the Terps' guy from Pressbox on who broke this news...as saying Gilchrist lost an appeal from the conference, because the rule for transferring within the ACC is TWO years, not one.

Yet apparently nobody knew this outside the university.

All I will say is that I demand Keith Cavanaugh's head on a platter. How did he not inform anyone of this over the past year (Haynie, who does the weekly show with him, admitted as much)?

There is something REALLY fishy here...

I have made some comments on Gilchrist that resulted from emotion and were in poor taste and for that I apologize.

But this is now beyond ridiculous. I feel bad for anyone that is getting bad advice and this appears to be the case with Gilchrist. His "personal advisor" Terelle Woody is really not doing Gus any favors.

I really hope that this young man grows up and soon or he'll be just another washed up athlete wondering "what if".

I'm kinda confused about what you are saying here. How does Keith Cavanaugh deserve blame?

He's not a Terps guy, he's a recruiting guy. He will stop at nothing to bad mouth the Maryland program, so take everything he says about the Terps (not neccesarily the Gilchrist situation, but anything Maryland related) with a grain of salt. He's a Maryland alum who feels snubbed by Gary and the program and has adopted Duke or anything Mike Brey related as his favorites. He's a very knowledgable guy, but has it in for Maryland in a big way.

I have always said that Brey would be a perfect replacement for Williams if Maryland does ever get rid of him, which as a Carolina fan I certainly hope they do.

Heck, I would try to get Mark Few away from Gonzaga :noidea:

I just see him as a West Coast guy. Great coach though, he's done an unreal job at a small school like Gonzaga.

Who cares where he has been. Don't you think he would have a real good shot at being successful in the ACC?

Gary's achilles heel in the last 4 years has been recruiting, and now this offseason kicks the program right in the Jimmy again. I understand just how much GW has done for the program, but it is time for a coaching change.

I think he could succeed anywhere, but I don't think he's interested in moving East. His name came up at South Carolina, Tennessee, Iowa and I'm sure others the past few years.

As for Gary Williams recruiting, people always bring up how he's struggled recently. He's never been a good recruiter, from Boston College to Ohio State to Maryland. Jimmy Jackson, Danny Miller, Travis Garrison, and Mike Jones are the only McDonald's guys i can think of off the top of my head. Johnny Rhodes too. His recruiting "problems" have always been there. He's always had good assistants like Art Perry, Dave Dickerson, and Billy Hahn working their tails off for him. As far as prospects go, I don't think Maryland is any worse off then they've ever been. He's just not developing the current guys like he did with Juan Dixon, Steven Blake, Lonny Baxter and guys from your two Final Four teams.

    • We’ll always have the no-hitter…
    • Do we know what his velocity was today? I know he doesn't light up the gun but was he at his normal? 
    • Longterm he’s probably that missing RH SU/MR that we’ve been looking for since the Fuji trade.  It’s probably Suarez vs Ramírez vs Tate for 1-2 bullpen spots. Wells and one of Irvin/Means could be in the bullpen mix as well.  Depth is good to have. I wouldn’t sleep on Ramirez either. Elias has shown a knack from adding relievers through trade or waivers. 
    • There's not a single high level prospect on the team he pitched against tonight and even the one out he got was crushed
    • Let’s tap the brakes on his move to the bullpen. His stuff plays and he can get outs. Best of all, he doesn’t walk anyone. He challenges hitters and gets weak contact. With our defense, I’d rather him give up the occasional double or flared hit to the outfield than to see walks. Keep him in the starting rotation until he proves he doesn’t belong. Wells and Irvin both have experience in the pen and frankly for Irvin, though I love him, has a real tough time throwing strikes at times.    anyway, let’s see what the old dog can do.
    • I could see Suarez sticking in a bullpen role long term with the movement on his fastball. Also he might be able to throw a 2 to 3 more MPH harder not having to worry about trying to pitch six innings. The Orioles have done a good job finding pitchers who weren't expected to do much in recent years and it would be cool if Suarez is another find.
    • I mean, heres where we really find out if Holliday is cut out for the majors and if he has the character to fight through major adversity right off the bat right?  Saw a good point that there was a guy previously that started 4 of 55, and that was ole #8.  Mike Trout didnt get his batting average up to .200 until May 31st of his first season.  Ideal? Absolutely not.  But when the franchises all-time hits leader started with the same slump its something to pay attention to.
