  1. PG County should simply donate the land to the American Legion or VFW. It'll be in private hands and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
  2. A big problem at National Harbor, in DC and northern Virginia. https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/local/illegal-dirt-bikes-and-atvs-swarm-national-harbor-streets/2017/06/27/20037560-5b4a-11e7-aa69-3964a7d55207_video.html https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/dozens-of-illegal-dirtbikes-atvs-choke-the-streets-of-national-harbor/2017/06/26/0174b718-5aa9-11e7-9fc6-c7ef4bc58d13_story.html?utm_term=.0f579ea7e4b2
  3. Just like Redskins QB Kirk Cousins making $24 million, which puts him above Aaron Rodgers, Je Flacco, Eli Manning, Big Ben, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, Tom Brady, etc.
  4. Jim Rogers, Marc Faber (Dr. Doom) and Peter Schiff have all been consistently negative over the past decade.
  5. There was a similar incident that occurred several years ago but the ambulance was stolen as Beltway Plaza in Greenbelt and resulted in a fatality. The thief was a white guy from Montgomery County. http://wjla.com/news/crime/stolen-ambulance-crashes-in-greenbelt-three-people-trapped-injured-109805
  6. Most likely Code 1.
  7. The Baltimore residents turned on Charles quickly after he expressed empathy for police.
  8. Ryan Odom did a great job turning around UMBC basketball in his first year. I hope he sticks around and builds a basketball program that can compete and win consistently year and year. With all the basketall talent in the State of Maryland, I wouldn't mind seeing a second college basketball team competing at the national level. Ideally I'd like to see UMBC play basketball in the Atlantic Ten Conference. UMBC would have rivals like La Salle and St. Joseph's to the north and George Washington, George Mason and VCU to the south. That's some pretty decent college basketball.
  9. For some reason, I can't get into Big Ten basketball. Never did like it.
  10. I haven't posted here in years. Some good news regarding football for a change. Hope Durkin has turned the program around. http://www.si.com/college-football/2016/12/12/college-football-recruiting-2017-classes
  11. Maryland gets another four star recruit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztvbQDWpafs
  12. I remember Maryland going up against Clemson during the Bobby Ross era. Those were tough fought games that could've gone either way. Maryland certainly has fallen on hard times. But I think Maryland finally has an administration in place that supports football. Just look at how the Cole Field House is being re-purposed.
  13. Randy Edsall apologizing to UConn for the way he left: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZZ6JnKAzyY After enduring 6 consecutive losing seasons, most UConn fans are ready to accept Edsall apology and move forward.
  14. With both Al Golden and Greg Schiano available, I'm surprised that UConn would bring back Randy Edsall. He left on bad terms, and his teams could never defeat ranked opponents.
  15. Even though John Graham hasn't done much, I hope he remains on the team.
  16. http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/writer/bruce-Feldman/24392033/talking-maryland-loyalty-and-coaching-with-ralph-friedgen
  17. But it may be all for naught of the P5 breaks away from the conferences and forms a separate league that functions like the NFL, with an 8 school playoff and equal national TV revenue sharing. Boy, Maryland would be a big loser under this scenario, at least in the short term.
  18. With Franklin at Penn State and Ralph at Rutgers, Maryland now has in-conference football rivals that the ACC had never really provided.
  19. Ralph is returning to college football as OC at Rutgers, Maryland's new rival. I tried posting the link but couldn't get it to paste.
  20. Any thoughts of Towson State changing its name to Maryland State and upgrading its athletic programs? Apparently that's the big thing now, at least at some schools that have directional names and are upgrading their football programs. For example, University of Southwestern Louisiana to University of Louisiana Lafayette; or Southwest Missouri State University to Missouri State University.
  21. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/terrapins-insider/wp/2014/01/14/maryland-alleges-acc-tried-to-lure-big-ten-schools-away/#comments
  22. At least Maryland isn't as bad as UMass whose AD hired this week their former HC, Mark Whipple, who was unemployed this past football season. And, believe it or not, the fans are happy with the hire. Of course, he coached UMass when it played in Division 1-AA and was generally successful on the field. The transition to BCS hasn't been smooth, and the faculty is rebelling about funds being diverted from academics. LOL!!!
  23. There's a picture of him on the Internet coaching college players invited to participate in the Medal of Honor Bowl in Charleston, SC. The picture was taken last week. The Fridge still fills out his sweatshirt.
  24. I think Doug Gansler is trying to resurrect his failing candidacy for governorship by getting the two parties to agree to a settlement so he could proclaim Maryland as the winner.
  25. Christine Brennan covered the Washington Redskins for the Washington Post during the Joe Gibbs era.
