terrapintimes.com reports that that the Coach is on his way to visit 2011 recruit Johnny O’Bryant. Johnny would be a power inside presence on the Terps.
If you are a regular listener to Terp Talk you have often heard me say that if I had a choice of Lance Stephenson or Greivis Vasquez for the next year , I clearly wanted Greivis. Now after Greivis’ announcement to return for his Senior year comes word from Jeff Barker and the Sun that Maryland is out of the recruitment for Born Ready, Lance Stephenson. This story is so complex it is impossible to make any rational observation about what happened. But perhaps the whole controversy surrounding the Brooklyn native was just too much for the Terrapins to deal with. Somehow or another I just don’t believe we have heard the last from Lance and Stretch, although it does appear as if it is over.
That’s the headline and topic for the show tonight. Dino will be in to co-host. The new studio has its phone now–410-296 6276. Call in and tell me Will Greivis return and if not will Lance be a Terp? Email any opinions on this matter to email@example.com. I would love to have some of ourr regular forum writers like terplaw and fkterp call in tonight.

The last time we spoke, I had reported that the Kansas decision was a done deal. Not according to the blog on Coast to Coast Recruiting that states inside info has him going to Maryland. The decision is set for March 31 at 11:45 in Miami. Who knows where this will lead?
Gary Williams and his Terrapins have returned to the NCAA Tourney. The Terrapins will face Mike Montgomery and his California Bears on Thursday afternoon at 2:55 in Kansas City. Coach Williams pointed out that this was the Terps 2nd appearance in 3 years in the NCAA’s and he was especially proud that in this time period 8 of his 10 seniors have graduated. The team erupted with with joy in their scouting room at 6:20 when the announcement was made over CBS. Sean Mosley weighed in on audio mosley-selection-sunday Senior Captain Dave Neal also on audiodave-neal-selection-sunday
For everyone I talked to over the weekend , I promised that we would be in and we were after the Wake game. I have to admit when I heard Arizona was in, I started to sweat a little. But in the long run Maryland was the strongest bubble team and it was fortunate because only 2 teams out of 10 or so got in. The Michigan State win on Thanksgiving day probably was the true convincing factor as well as Maryland’s brutal non-conference schedule.
ITs A GREAT DAY TO BE A TERP!!!!!!!
