The amount of love I have for GV, not to mention Hayes and Milbourne so far exceeds anyone on that second roster. A tragedy for Greivis to go out that way.
Option A in a heartbeat. I am still haunted by that loss. Plus w/ option B JW would have made some dumb ass decision at a critical time next year. He has proven to do that before.
A. Another chance to watch Grievis work his magic. I agree with others, this decision isn't particularly close. That Maryland team would have treated Northern Iowa as the mid-major it was. Maryland's experienced backcourt would have matched up much better against them than either michstate or kansas did. Not saying Maryland would have beaten kansas, but I feel confident that our guard play was a step above theirs (n.iowa's), and certainly above michstate (and their "football-style" of basketball).
I tried being reasonable once. I didn't like it.
This is really all that needs to be said.
This. I finally agree with you on something. It's ridiculous looking around here and people praising Turg for the good work he is doing with a talent deficient roster. Well the 900 lbs gorilla is that Gary is the only reason this program is sucking right now and people are scared to say it.
Colts is right. I can't believe no one around here is willing to admit Gary had some shortcomings when it came to recruiting these past few years.
When that shot went in -- that was the only time in my life that my jaw literally dropped and my mouth fell open...
Gary can't recruit, amirite??
Way too much voting with your heart and not your brain here.
B, and it's not really close for me.
I need Maryland basketball to be fun and relevant and ranked and buzz and whatever. That team would be in the top 10 right now. Take a second and really think about that. I'm sick of looking at my season tickets like they're a 2nd job I have to work at night to support my children. GV's last season was a blast. Double buzzer beater, Clemson, Duke senior night... I enjoyed so many games despite the ending. Yeah the dagger shot sucked, but fucking get over it already. All you people calling it the worst night of your life would have forgotten about it the second #9 Maryland rolled through top 5 Duke and Carolina this season. You might not think so, but I suspect you would. The only reason the Lucious shot still burns the way it does is because no one's put a band aid on it yet.
- You beat an Ali Farookmanesh led Northern Iowa team to punch our first ticket to the Elite 8 since 2002.
- You erase one of the most devastating fan memories of all time.
- You have 2 winnable game to reach a Final Four game in which we get to avenge what I almost refer to as a ref loss to Butler in 2007.
- You have 3 winnable games to have a shot at beating Duke for a National Championship

It's not possible to put a band aid on the college career of my favorite athlete ever ending abruptly in the most painful way imaginable.
The GV season was only so magical because we haven't had a truly great team in almost a decade. That's pathetic. That needs to be fixed.
I disagree with all of you.
That was a final four caliber team. Worst day ever.
I'm on the "A" Team for the recurring nightmare eradication alone.
Plus, Grevis shimmys his way to the FF. No contest.
FTR, I agree with just about all the arguments in favor of B. I just don't care. That MSU game will haunt me until the day I die.
