If the Harrison Bros go to UMD, it is awesome two-fold. First, Maryland is truly back to being a hoops powerhouse. Second, they'd be out of the running for Peters, and Xavier desperately needs some recruits for 2013.


Do you root for the Terps when they're not playing Xavier?

Absolutely. I grew up a Terps fan, though my only real affiliation with the school is that 3 of my cousins go/went there and a lot of my friends currently are there.

The past few years I haven't paid as much attention to them (me being out here, and --you can call me a fairweather fan here-- because the Terps just haven't been good). But now that Turgeon is getting the team back on track (and adding Dez), I'll definitely watch as many games as I can from here on out.

I have only once rooted for Maryland against Xavier. Granted, it was in 2003 when I hadn't even heard of the school...but still, I find that a funny story. :D It was the second round game after Nicholas hit the buzzer-beater to beat UNCW. Then the six-seeded Terps upset David West and the three-seeded Musketeers.

Sure seems to be an awful lot of internet chatter saying it's the Terps.

Who knows, though. Truth be told, I've been over this story for the better part of a year now. I'll be excited if we get them, but won't be crushed if we don't.

That's exactly how I feel. I think them announcing now is great, though. If they come to MD, perfect. If not, plenty of time to focus on other options. It should be interesting.

The MD basketball cynic in me says the positive vibes that it's MD is to make picking UK more of a surprise. Sorry, that is just what following MD basketball recruiting over the last decade has done to me. Even if they anounce MD I 'll be concerned until they sign their LOI.

S. Cleare was a little cryptic earlier. Said he can't wait for some good news tomorrow. I don't know if he was just being hopeful, or he knows something.

Lunch with Turgeon yesterday is a bad sign IMO. Sounds like the father telling Mark ahead of time that they are going to UK.

Haha, well that is ONE way of looking at it. Or he was spending some QT with the coach while he was looking for a condo as has been reported ;) Half empty/half full :) Just a couple hours left...

I hope MD gets them.

There will be some loaded teams in the ACC very soon.

That's correct. Been wearing my Terps shirt all day for good luck.

Aaron and Andrew Harrison commit to Kentucky. Seem like good kids, best to them both. Maryland now needs to fully turn their attention to Roddy Peters, and Rysheed Jordan.

Dammit. Sort of expected it, but still.
