Where was all the bluster last night. Great pitching will always overshadow banging your chest after bloop singles. Eric Hosmer went a lame 0-4.
Here’s hoping for a giants sweep though I still believe KC wins in 7 games.
Though was disappointed John Wall didn’t play, I cant blame the Wizards for not playing him. Kevin Seraphin was extremely impressive in defeat.
The World Series was so boring I watched the end of the match on the BTN. 22 kills by Ashleigh Crutcher.
“We’re excited about the year, obviously. We’ve had a great spring, summer and fall. It’s been really good for us and our guys have really improved. You’re going to love covering this team because you all like to be around winners and I know you like being around good kids. This has been a low-maintenance team and a lot of fun to coach. You’re going to have fun covering them just like I’m having a blast coaching them right now.”
On team chemistry:
“They are getting along great. I think we have a group of guys coming back who are very determined to be successful. They’ve worked extremely hard and we have a group of new guys who are very good basketball players and also very humble. I think there is a respect factor among our team. They respect each other’s abilities and this group seems to really get along between the lines and understand each other’s games. It’s been great so far. Now we haven’t gotten into playing time yet, it’s just practice time. Playing time changes things, but they’ve really been together. It’s been a good mesh.”
On the impact of the highly-regarded incoming freshman class:
“I don’t think our young guys are feeling pressure. I think there is a reason they are ranked so high, because they are such good players. They can handle it. It’s a good group of new guys.”
On moving into the Big Ten:
“The league is obviously a big change, but the thing with us is we are going from a great league to another great league. It’s not like we are dropping down six levels. Arguably we could be moving up. The Big Ten has been the best league in the country the last four years. They’ve had the most Sweet Sixteen teams, the most Elite Eights, the most Final Fours and the most first-team All Americans. It’s a heck of a league. It has coaches that I really respect. I’ve followed their programs and they do a tremendous job.”
Excerpt from terrapintimes.com
It was a weekend full of highs and lows for junior college point guard Jaylen Brantley (Odessa College/Odessa, Texas). The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Springfield, Mass., native took what he called an “outstanding” official visit to Maryland Oct. 17-18, but on the night of Oct. 18 he learned one of his best friends had died in an automobile accident.
Brantley left College Park, Md., early for Massachusetts, although he did ultimately commit to Mark Turgeon’s program on the morning of Oct. 20. Brantley was not immediately available for comment following his UMD pledge, although his mother, Angela Cayode, who accompanied her son on the visit, confirmed the commitment.
“Jaylen did just commit to Maryland, and we’re very, very excited about it. But he’s with family right now, because this death [to his friend] has rocked his world,” said Cayode, who was joined on the College Park trip by her brother and Brantley’s uncle, Kerny Cayode. “It was a horrible death, and it’s heartbreaking because this [the commitment] was such a big moment for Jaylen, and then this [the accident] happened. He was very excited about Maryland, but he doesn’t want to take away from the person he lost and their family.”
Senior forward Evan Smotrycz sustained a fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his left foot and will miss 4-6 weeks, head coach Mark Turgeon announced Sunday. Smotrycz suffered the injury at the conclusion of Friday night’s practice prior to Maryland Madness. He is scheduled to have surgery later this week.”We are really disappointed for Evan, but knowing his high character and tireless work ethic, we have full confidence he will return and finish strong in his senior season,” Turgeon said. “We have confidence that our front court players will step up in Evan’s absence.”

The Maryland men’s soccer team picked up a marquee road victory Sunday when it topped No. 5 Indiana, 2-1, at Armstrong Stadium.
Senior Alex Shinsky and sophomore Alex Crognale both scored for Maryland (7-5-2, 3-2-1 Big Ten) which notched its fourth-straight victory. It is the first road win for the Terps this season, who have downed top-five ranked foes two consecutive weekends.
The second-ranked Maryland field hockey team (13-2, 5-1 B1G) beat Big Ten opponent Rutgers 4-0 Sunday at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. Junior Sarah Sprink scored twice to lead the Terrapins.
The Terrapins controlled both ends of the field to win their last eight games since Sept. 26. Maryland outshot Rutgers (6-9, 1-6), 26-5 with 14 penalty corners to the Scarlet Knights’ two.
Sprink opened the scoring just under five minutes in when she banged in a shot off a penalty corner set up by Katie Gerzabek and Anna Dessoye.
In the 12th minute, senior Maxine Fluharty buried a rebound off another penalty corner to make it a two-goal lead for the Terps. Maryland led 2-0 at halftime.
