They missed the big dance but since they're in the NiT it would be nice to see them win it. Progress.
Had Maryland won either game after beat duke each time, they would have been in.
Turgeon has impressed me, though. Maryland is going to be a force in men's college basketball for years if he keeps going like he is. Their deep and talented, and the only flaw in his recruiting so far is not getting a ball handler. Faust and Allen can both handle the ball, of course, but neither is a real passer.
lol len is not a top 5 pick
[QUOTE=HoustonRaven;613274]Curious. Please tell me how an opinion can be a "lie".
I am sure what he is referring to was the statement that Larranaga did far more with less than Turge. Except for Stoglin,who was a head case that was primarily interested in getting high, the cupboard was completely bare when Turge got hired. Larranaga is a good coach and did a great job coaching the players he inherited. He was a great fit for Miami.
Maryland was replacing a very good coach in Gary Williams who struggled his last few years as he got close to retirement age. It would have made no sense to hire Larranaga who will be 64 before the next season starts and be right back in the situation with a coach close to retirement. Turge has turned around recruiting, but the jury is still out on how successful he will be.
Good Lord, there are 68 teams that make it, how many more do you want? Do you want to go Buffalo Wild Wings style and expand it to 256 team? Sure, that list did not necessarily represent #1-68 in the country, but do you think that it's safe to say that at least the top 30 teams in the country based on their performance in the regular season and conference tourneys made it? If you're not in the top 30, I don't see how you can say that you should be the #1 just because you won a consolation tournament. A tournament made up of teams who weren't good enough to reach the top field of 68.
It would be like a team winning the Tire Bowl and trying to declare themselves champions over Alabama.
Yeah I respectfully think the OP's post is a bit of a reach. I mean the Wizards have beaten just about every serious title contender this year outside of San Antonio and no one is considering them an upper elchelon team let alone the best in the game. It did feel great to see UM knock off Duke not once but twice though.
Well, it's all a moot point anyway now.
