Not bad. Not bad at all folks. Really liking what I've seen out of this team thus far in our first taste of ACC action. Only thing I'm a little disappointed by is the Faust injury, but in spite of that, it was crazy to see how ridiculously deep this team is. Seth Allen for both 6th man AND ACC RoY anyone? I knew the kid could score, but I didn't think he'd be this proficient, this quick. And at 6'1", who could of imagined him being as pesky a defender as he's been this year, especially in this game against VT.

All together, impressive start; if we can keep this up, maybe that easy early part of our schedule will have been well worth it. Wink

Hell of a game vs the Hokies! If only we could get the wizards to play like that! Laughing

Pretty much a flawless game and it's great to know we have lots of options outside of Wells and Len on offense. It's exciting already and this is only the start of a great season.

But I thought Seth Allen couldn't be a successful guard in the ACC? Laughing

Got some love from Grantland today:

Maryland, on the other hand they look quite well. Mark Turgeon's Terps have an amazing opportunity in a weak ACC, and they just aced their first test by clobbering Virginia Tech (another contender for the empty spot below Duke). At 13-1, the Terps have been excellent all year; in fact, the only game they dropped was their first, a close loss to Kentucky in Brooklyn. Turgeon has gathered a nice group of recruits (unlike Gary Williams, he's actually willing to spend time around the AAU scene, which helps), center Alex Len has turned into one of the 15 best big men in the country, and there's a resurgent sense of pride in College Park. I wish I could say the Terps were my dark-horse pick to challenge Duke and possibly even win the ACC, but I'm already late to the game. As of now, they look like the second-best team in the conference.

With Layman's big game, I wonder if he starts the next one. He still seems like a streaky player and one great half isn't going to undo all of that, but even if Faust is healthy it's also true that Layman adds an outside shooting threat that Faust doesn't bring. In the end, I'm not sure the 'starter' label will even matter that much as both will likely get a good run in the rotation as long as Layman doesn't fall back off the map.

We're getting there. Like someone said previously, a few more signature ACC wins and I'm sure we'll be in the top 25. I definitely feel we're a stronger team than the 21st and below teams, but they've all had some more 'marquee' wins than we have, so it's whatever. Just gotta be patient; we'll get there.

FWIW, - Vitale had us ranked 24.

I'm interested to see how Turgeon works the starting lineup this season. I think Padgett is better off the bench and doesn't bring anything more than the freshmen, I think the offense flows much better with Mitchell and Cleare in the post. PeShon plays efficient PG for us and I like the mixture of guards and wing players we can play with him.

PeShon/Wells/Faust/Mitchell/Len is an awesome starting five. We have an interchangeable starting five (yet young) that can matchup with anyone, and I think this team is just as dangerous on offense as they are on defense Shocked

Quick question, was the VT game on TV. I didn't get a chance to watch it, just listened on the radio in the car. Looking at my ESPN Scorecenter app, the FSU game is listed as on ESPN3, as was the VT game. Just wondering because I definitely want to watch this game on the big screen with my roomates or even possibly go out to pickles or something. Any info that anyone can give is much appreciated.

It was on TV. Usually most MD games are blacked out on ESPN3 (from my experience) as they're typically broadcast on either the CW (closer to Baltimore) and/or my20 (closer to College Park/DMV).

Alright thanks! I figured as much. It looked like most of the games were listed as ESPN3, so I don't know if that's just ESPN indicating where it would be on its family of networks.

Well, last night went about how I figured it would. The fact that we could have won it last night if not for Seth Allen's boneheaded shot says a lot to me. Maryland will have games like this because they are so young. I have faith going forward.

On that note, Pe'Shon is looking bad. I know Pe from working in athletics, and I have friends who still do, and they insist he's not the same this year. I didn't think he was the same last year either.

Yea, that second half was very bleh. Don't think it was a particularly bad loss, as FSU was a good team last year and matches up well with us IMO. Would be nice to go see us win in Miami, though, would "right the ship" so-to-speak in that it would almost make up for the FSU loss in terms of expectations.

In the second half I was a little disappointed that Turg didnt call a TO in the 0 points/FG's run we were having. Seemed like the boys really started pressing and taking awful drives and shots. Would have helped maybe to reset the offense a little bit.

He's really been a force over the past two games in your dominant performances. Laughing

You guys are taking the ACC by storm!
