MARYLAND RUMORS & GOSSIP

Can Dez Wells lead Maryland back to the NCAA Tournament?

When I first heard Maryland and Rutgers were added to the Big Ten, I was like “meh, whatever. At least Maryland basketball has a rich history. It’s pretty good.” Of course, then I realized the Terps have been pretty down, certainly by their standards, lately. (and the program always has players with really awesome names) Maybe things will be different this season? Perhaps we...

Turgeon starts anew at Maryland in Big Ten debut

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Mark Turgeon's fourth season at Maryland is shrouded by uncertainty. For one thing, the Terrapins are preparing to play basketball in the Big Ten for the first time.

Six Maryland Terrapins basketball players with AWESOME names

God Shamgod, Paris London, and Majestic Mapp. These are all actual names of well known college basketball players. But the Maryland Terrapins trump everybody, Exree Hipp. That just rules, plain and simple. And ever since America was introduced to Mr. Hipp in March of 1994, it’s called extra special attention to the names on the Maryland Terrapins basketball roster. Even their program’s...

Opposition Research: Scouting the Maryland Terrapins defense

Wisconsin is done with bye weeks (thank God) and it hits the ground running against one of the two newcomers to the Big Ten out of its second bye week. Most expected the next two weeks against the new guys in town to be a cakewalk, but so far this season Maryland and Rutgers have proven to be anything but pushovers. Given the upcoming slate of games in November for the Badgers, getting...

Maryland’s Anthony Nixon Flagged for “Removing his Helmet in Disgust”

Referees aren’t perfect, and they aren’t supposed to be. But at the same time, they’re not allowed to make up penalties on the fly, and that’s exactly what happened in today’s Iowa vs. Maryland game. In the second quarter, Maryland’s Anthony Nixon was flagged for “removing his helmet in disgust,” which means…uhhh….we don’t know. Next time Nixon takes off his...

Randy Edsall stretches to catch ball on the sidelines

Maryland head coach Randy Edsall only attempted one pass in his four years as a quarterback while at Syracuse University. On Saturday he showed that he may have been a pretty darn good wide receiver or defensive back, as he stretched to catch a pass from Iowa’s quarterback Jake Ruddock on the sidelines. Edsall really climbed the ladder to make the grab. It makes it kind of hard...

Vine: Maryland DB Anthony Nixon Penalized For ‘Removing His Helmet In Disgust’

We’ve all seen college football refs call silly penalties in the past, like a personal foul for “giving him the business” or a false start on “everyone but the center.” Today during Maryland’s game against Iowa, we saw a ref call one of the silliest penalties that we’ve ever seen. Terrapins DB Anthony Nixon took his helmet off while he was still on the field, and he...

Maryland player flagged for 'removing helmet in disgust'

Maryland's Anthony Nixon is a junior defensive back. On Saturday against Iowa, Nixon was called for a penalty that isn't heard too often. How many players can say they were called for "removing their helmet in disgust?" That should provide an interesting moment in the film room this week.

Mark Turgeon: Damonte Dodd would be our starting center, if season started tonight

Last season Dez Wells and Jake Layman led the Maryland Terrapins with 0.8 blocks per game. That stat alone shows the Terps lack of inside presence on defense a season ago. Head coach Mark Turgeon hopes to change that despite losing Charles Mitchell and Shaquille Cleare this summer to transfers. His answer may lie in 6-foot-11 sophomore Damonte Dodd. During a breakfast with boosters...

Big Ten Basketball Preview: #9 Maryland Terrapins

Welcome to the league, Maryland.  Sorry all your players are leaving.  Ok not all, and there's still talent here, but five of the team's eight top scorers transferred out - not graduated, but transferred which is pretty weird.  They still retained scorers #1, #3, and #4 and bring in a nice recruiting class so they won't be at the bottom of the conference, but I don...
