Tonight there is a special guest at the game.

The number 9 recruit in the country Lance Stephenson is a shooting guard who many feel is a great talent. Some feel that he could be the #1 recruit, but mental issues are holding him back.

Even though Rivals.com and ESPN are not saying Maryland is one of his choices, he is at the game and there is a small chance that he might come here. He might also go to his local school St. Johns University.

Mental issues? Like he's crazy? If so, I imagine there's a fellowship endowed by Ron Artest at St. John's waiting for him.

By the way - great start to the second half for Maryland. I <3 Landon Milbourne.

He's a potentially huge recruit, a special talent which could change Md overnight. He is a teammate of Padgett and had been rumored to have an interest in Md, I also think this is an official visit. Good job by GW and staff, now they need to close the deal!!

Nice win for Gary and the players. They played pretty good defense and only had 7 turnovers. I don't ever remember having so few in a game. Mosley, Milbourne, Bowie and Vasquez had good games. Mosley started in place of Hayes and Johnny Holiday on the postgame show said to Gary that the move seemed to be good for both players. I believe they each had eight. Gary said he wanted Eric to watch the first 4 minutes of the game to get a feel for the flow. Gary appeared to be much calmer tonight, as expected, and he thought the Yellow uniforms helped.

Vasquez thanked God on the postgame show and couldn't stop giving Gary praise. He said he is the best coach he ever had and he is a great coach over and over. Chris asked him if he knew he was close to a triple double at the end of the game and I believe Bowie missed a layup that would have given it to him. He said yeah and I will forgive him but you know how hard it is to get a triple double? Man I worked so hard to get it. Surprised? He tries to say the right things and then blows it with these kind of comments. It's always me, me, me. 11 points 10 rebounds and 9 asists. Very Good game but he still wasted a number of threes where he should have tried to penetrate to get a better shot. It will never change but we won the game. I hope our top recruit Lance Stephenson from NY was impressed with the Comcast Center and our win tonight. If he is a top guard he should easily see how he could fit in to our lineup next year. 14-7 and 3-4 in the ACC.

Tonight, Gary...

a) Literally came out swinging. Instead of his normal fist pump, he came out, stopped near the out of bounds line, turned to the students, and basically threw a right hook. It was awesome.

b) Got a handshake and a smile from President Mote at the bench after walking over there after the fist pump.

c) Stuck around after talking with Johnny and Chris to stand and listen to the alma mater, when normally he would head back to the locker room. Clearly an extremely emotional game for him, and it was great to be reminded just how much he loves this place - and from the way the fans sounded, loud throughout and chanting his name near the end, how much they love him.

HOF Gary

Thanks for the info Busta!

I love Gary and hope he can somehow magically turn this program back in the right direction. I'd hope for him to be the one that gets us back on track 100 x's more than for it to be someone else.

At this point, I don't think he'll do it, but I'm begging to be proved wrong here.

    • I would offer 4 years for $75-80 million. Trade for Lopez and the rotation would be more than set. 
    • Distinctly remember having a debate with @DrungoHazewoodseveral years ago about McGriff’s candidacy. I wonder if he’s changed his tune. 
    • It's only 2 pages if you take out duplicate posts and unrelated to Gibson posts. It is decibel going to be a long offseason.  Haha
    • He's currently #12. If he collects the entire contract, he will be in the top 2-3. Verlander likely still beats him with this next contract, but I agree it's still close. My point is that ToR starters are wickedly expensive and if Grayson becomes one, as many have postulated he might, having him early in his career when he is cost contained and thoughtfully dispositioning him when he becomes expensive will have an enormous impact on the finances of the ball club. I think mores than Adley and Gunnar but I could be very wrong. 
    • I’m willing to wait and be patient until the end of the offseason. What choice do any of us really have? But if the Orioles plan is to “nickel and dime” Free Agents, go bargain bin shopping, rely on prospect growth, and convince fans they are still in a rebuild with a “limited budget”; I think this will tell me all I need to know. The first name may have changed with ownership, but the last name is still the same. If we don’t spend big now with this minuscule payroll when will we ever? If arb is going to be used as a reason to not spend on Free Agency will it get better when our younger players get more expensive through raises? My greatest hope is that the Orioles actually care about their fans and MORE IMPORTANTLY about winning a championship. I know to each his/her own, but I will never be able to get behind billions budgeting and pinching pennies to make more millions.
    • It’s a huge problem in our society today that if something gets said three times on Twitter, people will take it for a fact.  Let’s just wait until we have an authoritative report.   
    • Reveal show had detail it was in-person meeting today (so Kim Ng couldn't be working on her Orioles trades).    Chipper had a travel-cancelling illness, and was replaced by some old Diamondbacks exec the current HOF president could get on short notice. Congrats Crime Dog.    I either forgot or never knew the detail from Harold Reynolds after the announcement it was Kirby Puckett who bestowed the nickname on a Japan tour.
