A Night in the Ravens Den

Pittsburgh won the game, the Ravens could not catch up. For once, Baltimore’s other Birds (not the Orioles) were out hit at the end. The Ravens need some offensive playmakers. A Plaxico Burress type receiver would do wonders for Joe Flacco’s numbers. This is not as much about the game as about the party. It […]

On the Record for the NFL

Quick picks for Sunday’s Contests With the last word on the Ravens being that two defensive starters are out, we have to go with the Steelers in a straight up pick. Six points is a lot if you are going with the spread. With the spread figured in, I would take Baltimore. In addition, I […]

Is the Sky Falling Again in Terpland?

I am not chicken little, but everytime we lose a basketball game (or football game) the vox populi calls for the coaches head. I am not pollyanna either. Just because we win, does not make everything ok. What we need from the fans and media is a bit of a level head. Hearing Gary from […]

Too Big to Fail

There has been much talk of institutions, like banks or GM that are too big to fail. My take on Barrack Obama’s time as president-elect is that he is the real ‘too big to fail’ for American liberals. All of the questionable nominees and scandals * that have already befallen the fledgling presidency are scary. […]

Where Do I Begin? by Michael Weiss

Last night was devastating. For 30 minutes, Maryland played with “fire in their belly” and ran Miami off the court. It appeared that Miami was out of shape and over the hill. Adrian Bowe was blowing by defenders. Gary wasn’t yelling (well lets just say as loud as he usually is). Baxton Dupree was…..well, he […]

The Team fits Gary

This is a good team for the coaching style of Gary Williams. They seem tough, willing to play defense at a frenetic level, and have young men committed to a team rebounding concept. Teammates Adrian Bowie (sophomore guard) and Sean Mosely (guard/forward freshman) have been junkyard dog tough in crunch time. Many already know YMCA […]

Olde Tyme Football

That was some olde tyme football in both the Ravens Titans game and the Eagles Giants match up. That is the way playoff football is supposed look and feel. In both games, you could tell the players, coaches and probably owners did not like each other. The controlled violence of professional football was on display. […]

Football Update

Conference Championship week in the NFL is a good time to produce a football update. Our first football update this week is for Josh Portis and Darrius Heyward Bey from the Terps. Josh Portis ended up at Division II California of Pennsylvania. Located near Pittsburgh at 250 University Ave., California, PA 15419 View Larger Map) […]

Pitt Picks our Pocket (again)

The Terps seem to have lost their top choice for 2010 point guard to Pitt. Isiah Epps (4 stars, Plainfield, NJ) made a verbal commitment to the Pitt Panthers in the last 24 hours. So that is a big story. Remember, it is verbal. Mr. Epps did not sign anything, so maybe it is a […]

A Bounce Back

One win can change a season. One singular effort of determination. An act of defiance. Sometimes it does not matter if you are too small, can’t shoot straight or have to play out of position. It may not concern you that the Internet message boards think your team stinks. Even if you have an 11 […]
