The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

Bad news for the local jerks who slurped Randy Edsall.

Stone might turn pro after that gem.

Which is basically nobody. You have made up an entire strawman opponent that does not exist.

If he has a couple games like that in the tournament he is gone for sure.

Oddly, Psu is one of those bottom feeders who seem to play up to the potential of the team they are playing. Last year they lost to a ranked Maryland by 6 pts the first time they met and then by 3 the second time. Even though psu is historically one of the weakest big ten teams, they always seem to find ways to put a scare into much better teams. I've followed big ten sports for decades, and I've learned never to take psu for granted....no matter how bad their record is.

It's funny, I read a story by CSN that was saying that the Terps were forcing too many shots, etc.  I didn't see that.  I saw them missing tons of open jumpers, and some wide open 3's.  Some nights, the shots just don't fall.  PSU is another one of those "tweener" teams that the Terps have struggled with this year, but that really wasn't it.  They were running the offense, efficiently and not turning it over.  The Terps were tight, and also getting out rebounded - some of which were just unlucky bounces due to PSU's bricklaying skills. 

 

To me this win was one of the most impressive, if not for coming back from 13 down with 6 minutes to go, but even for Turg's coaching.  He coached this team up in this one.  I saw a team playing very smart in the second half, realizing that with their shots not falling, it was time to dish it off inside to Stone, and let the big man(kid) take over.  And boy did he ever!  Trimble was struggling with his shot, but he did a marvelous job of penetrating and finding Stone, whom PSU had no answer for. 

 

Back in 1998, the Terps were down by 18 to Wake with 3 minutes to go, and came back to win.  This game reminded me a lot of that.  The run to end the game was most impressive, when things evened out and the shots started falling.

I was thinking that all during the 2nd half.  I don't see how or why he'd return for a 2nd season unless he's injured.

Filmstudy the UNC game and you will see a couple hundred reasons why he may want to stay....at least a few hundred reasons why he should stay.

Competition is about to start getting a lot better.

I might have figured wrong ......
