Terps Tumble and Top 25 Ballot

A tremendous atmosphere at Comcast Center last night as Maryland played host to 5th ranked Duke (I had them 6th).  Not a seat to be found, nor a disparaging remark spared as the Terps looked for that first signature win of the season.

But a funny thing happened on the way to a riotous night on Route 1.  The Terps failed to show up.

Pathetic perimeter defense allowed for open look after open look.  Kyle Singler is good, but he looked like ChristianLaettner circa 1992.

The reality of the 2010-2011 Terps is they’re a year away from making some noise in March.  Nick Faust comes on board next season and is that real shooter they need.  Combined with the growth of this large freshman class and all will be well.

In the meantime, enjoy the journey and hope that somehow they can find four  days of magic in Charlotte for the ACC Tourney.

Here’s my ballot this week, and yes, Harvard is still there.  Although, I believe North Carolina though will re-join the class next week.
