Beating NCST? Just kill me. Actually kill our students for such a dumb move.
Whatever, let the motherfuckers celebrate. When's the last time we beat a top 15 team at home?
any student who stormed the court and is reading this...HEY...YOU SUCK!
Assume it was a buzzer beater
Lame, but it's the first big win we've had under Turgeon. Just be glad the place was packed.
Kinda ambivalent about it. There hasn't been much to celebrate about in FB or BB in, well, a really long time...
Seriously? Who cares? They're college kids celebrating. Maybe we should all just enjoy it for a few minutes before blasting college kids for being too excited about their school winning a game.
Who gives a fuck.
Xactly. U crumudgeons weren't in college once?
At first I was about to get all OWG about it but then I realized that this exuberance and enthusiasm are signs that our program is experiencing rebirth. It's tremendous.
Good lord you grinch-ass MFer....Let the kids have their fun...
seriously. fuck any old ass curmudgeon who has a problem with it.
EXACTLY. Who the fuck are all the cool people on here that get to decide when it's appropriate to get fucking excited and when it isnt??? Lame as shit to not be excited about this. "Only celebrate when I say it's appropriate." Fuck off.
I'm ok with 90% of court rushes, but for fucking NC State? Shameful.
Fucking embarrassing, the students should be ashamed. Truly pathetic.
Anyone who puts "rules" on court rushing is delusional about their fandom. You don't win extra points for acting "above it".
I'm betting, as a player, court rushes feel awesome and rewarding, and that is ALL that matters. Kids want to come to that kind of environment.
This. Seth Davis is on Twitter trying to argue that Maryland won't "respond well to a taste of success" because the fans went nuts. As if they would come out and beat Duke by 35 if the fans had just silently walked out of the arena in an orderly fashion, but now are going to be too cocky or something.
No not "this". It's small time. People who think it's fun whenever also probably worry more about the dip being served when they are watching the game than the game itself.
Not acting above anything, but there is a reason everyone including svp is calling our fans out now - cause its pathetic.
The almuni who sit around talking shit about our players all game rather than cheering like the students are so superior. Nobody should celebrate unless the most grumpy alum says it's allowed.
It was a big win, versus a good team, with a last second shot.
Give it a break.
What is pathetic about it? Is the committee less likely to put us in as an at-large team because our fans overreacted? Is our team less likely to play well in the next game because our fans reacted to their win with overwhelming enthusiasm? Are recruits less likely to come to Maryland because they think our fans get just a little too excited when the basketball team does well?
I don't even know wtf that dip comment is supposed to mean, but please tell me why a court storming should be viewed as a negative for our program, and then I'll be all aboard the "NEVER TOUCH THE SACRED HARDWOOD, STUDENTS" bandwagon.
i cant believe we have so many fans that think this is OK. what if we did it vs an unranked opponent? still ok?
Whatever. Doesn't really piss me off anymore; let the kids have fun. Also, IIRC we rushed the court against NC State in 2000 when we were ranked and they weren't.
After two shitty losses, a big win against a top 15 team with a last second shot, seriously? rushing court is just an emotional move, when you get emotional, you show it. I was jumping up and down in my house and my wife and kids thought I was crazy, but I don't give a fuck because I'm too damn excited to care!

outside of losers (aka diehards - naw really, just losers) like us ... turgeon just arrived to Maryland today with this staple win (against the ACC pre-season champs).
we all knew the work he was doing (recruiting, prestige, etc), but non-diehards (aka non-losers) don't know that.
who the fuck cares.
maryland just beat the #14 team in the country. now run and tell UNC, to hide your kids, hide your wife and hide your husband b/c we rapin everyone out here.
