You got the facts right and the conclusion wrong. We've been mediocre so long that it's the only thing that matters. NO ONE cares about mediocre Maryland vs shitty Wake on Raycom, and it's not exactly a phenomenon unique to our fanbase. Who cares?
Seriously, I bet every ACC team has a Duke package. It would be dumb not to and to think that implies a Duke obsession is ridiculous.
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
I've never hated duke players as much as I've hated duke in general.
Kyle Singler was the worst. Absolute worst.
Just curious- is there any reason why we have to chant " F*%k Duke? It's on ESPN and it just make us look dumb. When I see other colleges yelling that stuff on tv, it makes them look stupid.
Make it the loudest building in college basketball. Make up creative chants that will make people laugh and want to join in.
Here's the real challenge- figure out how to make the other ACC games as loud as the Duke game. We make a big deal about Duke. Every ACC game should be loud!
It;s not just about the students- I see alumni standing up and cheering for a Duke game but sitting down for other ACC games.
Won't happen this year since they got rid of Zombie Nation
I don't think you can say the UVa game was much more important, but obviously the home loss to UVa hurt. There are still seven regular season games yet to be played so the final chapter has yet to be written. As the next game up, the Duke game is huge as a win over Duke would put the Terps back in the NCAA tourney picture. (Duke is likely going to be at worst a #2 seed in the NCAA tourney so a win over Duke is big on any team's resume.) On the other hand a loss versus Duke means that the Terps may well be looking at having to go 5-1 the rest of the way to get in the tourney--a pretty unlikely scenario.
LOL at this thread. All of the "stop obsessing over duke posters" obsess over NC State. I'm sure we should all hate NC State more than a flop happy, hand checking team that robbed of two NCs in a row.
Please bring back R&R Part II. I don't know what this has to do with this thread, but I heard it played during a couple of other games recently and our accapella version simply doesn't do it justice. It was a good attempt to keep that tradition going, but it's just silly that it's sung right after the opening tip. I know the band otherwise just plays music over it if you try to start it before the game. I just wish they would bring that back.
Just got this:
So you have a Duke ticket and you are probably guarding it with your life. Some of you perhaps even hired a watchdog - or pet hamster. Either way, can you believe it's almost here? Your Maryland Men's Basketball team faces off against #2 Duke this Saturday, February 16, in the most anticipated rivalry matchup of the season. For some of you, it will be your first one. For others, it will be the continuation of a tradition you've experienced for years. Either way, before the weekend arrives, here are a few things you need to know:
1. COME EARLY! Students will be allowed to start lining up at 6 a.m. on the morning of the game. The doors for the event will open at 3:00 p.m. for students only. Why is this time earlier than usual? Because we have a little something special planned for you...and we need you all there to pull it off. So plan accordingly and arrive at Comcast Center with plenty of time to allow you entrance into the building as soon as possible. Remember, there is no re-entry for the game after you enter.
2. PRIZES! Did we mention we have a surprise for you? So, if "the Duke game" isn't reason enough to arrive as early as possible, perhaps the chance to play a few games and win cool prizes will be! Any student who arrives inside the building by 3:30pm will automatically be entered to win a 40" LCD TV, Dre Beats Headphones, a basketball autographed by Terp legend Juan Dixon and more!
3. FREE T-SHIRT! The first 4,000 students will receive a special t-shirt, courtesy of New York Life and Maryland Athletics. What color? Let's just say that you are in for a treat.
4. SHOW YOUR MARYLAND PRIDE! There is nothing like gameday at the University of Maryland and you, the students, play a huge part in that! Arrive early, cheer loud and be respectful of the fans around you. Click here to view a special message from Coach Turgeon, Johnny Holliday, Nick Faust and a few others!
5. STUDENT TICKET POLICY REMINDER - Students must present a valid UMCP student ID with their game ticket. Any saved seat that remains unoccupied at 5:45 p.m. will be become open seating.
We'll see you at the game - Go Terps!
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
Oh no, they are so going to do a harlem shake video or some crap.
I bet it's a pride shirt.
im hearing pg plaza is the spot!
Hopefully it's a B1G shirt.
Definitely sounds like a pride shirt. Lucky bastards.
Making a line is overrated. Last year I showed up 4 hrs before the game n the line was towards the end. I still got seats next to the court. I better enjoy that since May is looming fast. Anyone know how much season tickets are for young alumni?
That'd be amazing
I've heard it's gonna be a different color shirt depending on where you're sitting, kinda like Operation 54K against Miami last year, except hopefully without the whole "White Pride" fiasco. Also, to the people mentioning the "first 4,000 students" getting t-shirts, 4,000 is the capacity of the student section, so it's actually everyone with a student ticket getting a t-shirt.
