"@SethDavisHoops This is why I'm such a fuddy duddy about court storms. If you act like you've been there before, maybe you'll get there again."
"@SethDavisHoops Maryland fans have been all over me about not ranking them. So they act like they won a title by beating the 14th ranked team. Turgeon too."
"@SethDavisHoops I remember when Missouri beat Kansas last year the Mizzou players told the fans not to rush the court. That's a winning attitude."
Just shut your fucking mouth Seth Davis...no one respects you, silver spoon motherf*cker...The nerve to call out Turgeon for getting excited over that win. I hope he gets hit by a bus. That's all.
I will agree with you regarding the Turgeon statement
Damn, if only there was a thread on this board named "Seth Davis" you could have posted this in!
Glad there isn't another thread on this with the same title.
"Turgeon has 3 key guys on current roster - Allen, Dez, and Jake - that have not improved." -Orioleterp
This guy doesnt need two threads. He's a reporter, not the selection committee chair.
Fuck him. The fact is this was Turgeon's first Maryland win against a ranked team at home. Turge and crew have been here about 20 months. Imagine slogging through last season, getting rid of some shitbags he inherited, and all of the other crap he has had to deal with. So you get an important win over a ranked team that your team's psyche desperately needed and now a douchebag like Seth Davis wants to criticize our coach for having some emotion after the win. I'm delighted Turge looked like Gary after we beat Georgetown.
Hey Seth Davis - go fuck yourself you communist douchbag motherfucker.
If you're so smart, why aren't you rich?
I'm almost positive rankings and winning aren't hurt by court stormings.

He's in that class of media type that never played sports at any significant level, not even high school. Daddy was a major washington lawyer/power broker, gets Seth into Duke. Seth gets to go write sports in New Haven for a few years and then winds up at CNNSI. Classic born on third and thinks he hit a triple. I never think much of guys like him or Mike Greenberg. I'd much rather hear what Bilas or Doris Burke has to say. And notice they never make those kind of dumb judgments about storming the court or whatever. It's always people who never played like Greenberg or Davis or Peter King.
Seth is from the area and grew up on Maryland basketball. He's clearly trolling after all the shit he took on Twitter for not ranking us.
Obvious troll is obvious.
I like this phrase...you're exactly right..it's impossible to respect someone like him who has never played a sport at a high level. This transcends all sports I think...unless you know what it's like to compete and be an athlete you have no perspective on what it's really like. And to call out our coach...god what a joke, he wouldn't last 5 minutes as a college basketball coach. Fucking piece of shit.
That being said, we also have like 10 threads on the 2 boards here saying mostly the same thing about storming the court.
Follow me on Twitter @Konartistnupe
Last year during his buy/sell column, he had a so-so terps as a buy. It's not like he hates the Terps.
He is just a guy with a column and a few contacts, that also doesn't know much of anything about hoops. He's clearly trolling and not worth worrying about.
Strange he called out Turgeon considering he was noticeably down on the win last night. He wasn't pleased with the way the team played in a lot of respects, so I'm not sure why Davis is calling him out for being overly excited about beating NC State.
I assume he's referencing Turgeon being giddy and jumping around as time expired. He was clearly pretty pumped at first, and rightfully so imo.
He also had some sort of callout against NC State fans like "maybe you shouldn't have celebrated so hard for beating Duke." Twitter is great in many ways, but it turns a lot of previously reasonable sports writers into blatant trolls either because they get bitter at all the criticism they get or they know it will generate more followers/hits.
I tend to think this is pretty irrelevant, myself. And, yeah, generally Davis isn't particularly anti-UMD (he's no Doyel), but he's being a trolling douche here.
Must not be an athlete or former athlete yourself
Thing is, Turgeon's just a very excitable/demonstrative coach on the sidelines in general. He gets excited and runs around and jumps during big runs in the middle of the game too. It's not like he's this calm, quiet guy in general and what we saw last night was out of the ordinary for him because he thought it was such an amazing win. I also think a lot of it had to do with the dramatic way the game ended. I think if we had just dominated them and won by 15 and there were no end-of-game dramatics, I don't think you would have seen the jumping around and so much emotion.
Yes I agree...I remember him celebrating the same way last year after we beat Miami...he might not have been pleased with how we played but he's still damn excited we won..just like all of us
You don't need to be a quark to talk about quantum mechanics. And analyzing sports isn't quantum mechanics.*
Did you learn that kind of logic at Maryland? (I sure as shit hope not.)

He doesn't deserve one thread. Or even posts in the twitter thread.
