TerpBlogging 4

Well, the ACC tournament starts tomorrow. Maryland plays Clemson at 12 Noon. This doesn't bode well for the Terps, as they were swept by Clemson in the regular season. (according to CBS sportsline, this is the first time this has happened since '96-'97) Coach Williams says there'll be a lineup change, and I have to say that it's about time. We can't give up 90 points to Clemson and expect to go far into the NCAA tournament. If we play as we have the last five games, the Terps will be NIT-bound for sure. No one wants to be NIT-bound in the ACC.

But there's no telling whether Maryland will be able to come out of nowhere to run the table like they did last year. Any one of the top eight teams has a chance to win this tournament, and even Clemson has a much better shot than they normally would have. It should be an interesting ACC tournament for sure. Don't be shocked if you don't see any of the top three seeds in the final round.
Here's hoping. ^_^

PostScript: By the way, what the smurf is with 12-18 Oakland? They should probably rename themselves "Illinois Fodder"
