Virginia can't score 51 points.
Hands down - the stupidest argument I've seen posted on this board.
It seems that for every real piece of interesting news posted on the board, there is a butt load of whiney bitching about non-issues. WTF is it with some MD fans??
Leave the students alone, first they get slammed for apathy - not showing up for games, then they get slammed for being excited. It was a big ending to a big game. It was fine.

Now THAT was funny
Just a bunch of old and/or sad people whining and complaining lol
I'm sure people here would be mocking UVA or Wake Forest if they did something similar. I don't care though. I was at the game and it was a good student crowd and atmosphere throughout. If they keep that up for home games, I don't really care if they storm the court afterward. For the record, I think it was more the circumstances of winning in the last second of the game than because we beat #14 NC State, but it doesn't really matter to me either way.
I say.. let them sing
I actually think it's the younger folks that over-analyze this, but I'm not 100% sure of everybody's ages here. I'm 49 and I think the kids at the game should do what kids have always done -- whatever the hell they decide for themselves.
24 yr old grad, and I think it was small time...not as bad as rushing the field after beating 5-6 miami after their teammate had just died in '06, but this was still stupid.
It was ncst. Rushing the court against a program we urinated on for 20 yrs is embarrassing. It means we respect moo u and think they are good. This is not acceptable. I'd rather see us rush the court after beating unc. This is like rushing the court after beating wake. Yuck.
I was excited. But there s a difference between a boner and premature ejaculation. Understand which tonight was.
I use bar soap but fuck nickleback
im not saying im okay with this. im just saying i dont care. we won, so fuck it
"Small time" has no actual meaning. It's made up, a figment of your imagination that has no bearing on anything. We aren't losing recruits because of "small time" court rushing. USNEWS isn't going to lower our ranking because of "small time" court rushing. It is only relevant to some fantasy world that you and the Hogies of the world spend your time daydreaming in. This is the same mythical world in which GV shimmying brings shame upon us because real players act like they've "been there".
As for svp, i say this with no malice, but he is paid to find random sports topics to talk about. That is to say, it's just fodder for his job, I don't take his words on it seriously.
Someone on the internet thinks we're uncool? Oh how will we ever live with ourselves!
Storming the court after beating the Wuffies means the terrorists have won.
Reflection of the "participation ribbon" generation. I love that this team gutted out a win, but it wasn't a very well played game. It's NC State. Be patient and save that move for the big wins that are hopefully to come.
Sweet sample size! The players on this team seemed to be into it...
Then you should see how the entire team celebrated with the students on the court. I guess you were busy posting and didn't see how much fun Alex Len was having at the center of the crowd.

Oral is killing it in this thread. The hang up with rushing the court is about some obsession with NC State that I'll never understand. I'm so indifferent about them I just can't make myself hate them.
This was our signature win of the season. We now have a good tournament resume. We won it with a last second shot, .9 seconds left. The players were jumping up and down and screaming at mid court. The students had been cheering their lungs out the entire game. They rushed the court and the players celebrated with them. The players loved it, the students loved it and the coach loved it so shut up about it.
I can only assume that all the students who rushed the court were really loud the entire game right? Cause that certainly wasn't the case for a lot of the students there.
I gave it some thought this morning and changed my stance on it. While I did not storm because I thought it was ridiculous at the time, I am okay with it now for a few reasons...
1. It was an emotional last-second win against a ranked team
2. This team REALLY needed a statement win and finally got it
3. Many of these students have never witnessed a win like that. Our last ranked win was Duke in 2010 and many of the students have been exposed to subpar basketball since attending Maryland
Anyway, who really cares when it's all said and done. In a week nobody will be talking about us storming the court. We won the game and got our statement win that we so desperately needed...hopefully this team finally has some confidence and can roll.
again this team hasn't won a game against a ranked team in 3 years ... the team MD just beat previously dethroned the #1 team in the nation.
this and the upset over duke later this year will be the only times they rush the court.
and turgeon said the name "Greivis" last night (no last name) in his press conference (even though he wasn't here for GV) ... awesome.
