2023-2024 Terps Basketball

Recommended Posts

It's revealing that the Terps are 4 games in and nobody has started a thread for the 2023-24 season. This team is already 1-3 and appears to be headed for a really rough road. They've now lost 3 in a row after laying a big turd against Villanova. 

Very disappointing.

What an absolute disaster. Willard's teams are godawful on the road. Willard already looking like the wrong guy. I don't get what happened in the offseason. Brought in nobody from the portal and lost Hakim Heart. The freshmen look terrible. Also why are you heaving up endless threes when you can't shoot? Turgeon's teams used to do this nonstop and it drove me crazy.

I usually don't start following them until they get to the Big-10 games because usually they just beat up on the patsies, but apparently, they are the patsies. When was the last time this program started off 1-3? The Wade years? 

I don't follow them as closely as I had in the past, but last year's team seems to have some spunk but they really have stumbled out of the gate. 

Williard did not bring in any impact talent it seems. Maybe he's not the recruiter we were hoping he would be? 

And man, do his teams stink on the road. Wonder why?

    • Works for me,  as long as the first piece is a Norby type!  Only one of Ortiz/Westburg/Cowser/Kjerstad should be traded for Cease.  Let them pick one of them and a couple in the 8-15 range then a lottery pick or two if needed.  But giving up 2 of those is to pricy for the return.  I like Cease, but personally value him as a very solid #3 starter.  Sure, he COULD perform better than that,  but I wouldn't bet on it.  Maybe he reverts back to his 2022 form, but I think it more likely that what we get is what we saw from him in 2023, with an improvement in numbers due to the defense behind him. 
    • Exited about this kid and the future of our international signings. We have to remember the initial reporting don’t mean a whole lot. We’ve had success in the 100-500 k range too.
    • Downtown restaurants should like this too.  Much better for any local entertainment venues.
    • Cease is a solid MLB starting pitcher with 2 years of control  who's team has clearly made it known that he's available.  Of course there is a lot of interest.  There is a lot of interest in the Orioles' prospects, as well.  Fans of both teams are hopeful that their team will get maximum value for their assets in any trade.  I'm sure that it is sometimes difficult for GMs to reach a meeting of the minds on a player's value, in which case they need to work out a restructure of the discussed deal that may not include that player.  I think Elias' opinion on Ortiz is likely to be pretty close to what posters on this site are telling you.  If the White Sox GM views Ortiz as you do, it would seem that a deal between the two teams would most likely not have Ortiz included.  I'm sure that isn't all that unusual and the GMs just turn the page and look at working out a trade involving other players/prospects.  What confuses me is that you seem to rate Ortiz lower than we do and lower than the various sites rate him, but would like a trade of Cease for Cowser and Ortiz.  I'm against that deal because I think 2 prospects rated that highly would be an overpay.  It seems to me, you agree.  You simply rate Ortiz lower.  Seems to me that the answer in such an impasse that would make both parties happy would be to replace Ortiz with another prospect that is lower rated than Ortiz -- which would be of equal value in your mind, since you rate Ortiz lower and still think the proposed trade is a fair one.  Make sense?  Maybe replace Ortiz with Norby.
    • I would definitely do Westburg  and Cowser.
    • 100% agree with you.  Especially when you haves waves of prospects coming up behind these guys.
