Thursday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 19 March 2009 by Glenn Clark

Maryland 68, Cal 61

If Cal gets hot; they’ll win. I’m counting on them not getting hot. This should be the type of game where Landon Milbourne scores 24 using his size and range to his advantage.

Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 17 March 2009 by Glenn Clark

Your Orioles rotation will be Jeremy Guthrie, Koji Uehara, Adam Eaton, Hayden Penn, and Brian Bass.

I’d ALMOST bet money on it.

I’m not to torn up about Radhames Liz not being a part of the rotation. If this rebuilding plan DOES somehow work out; Liz’s future would be in the bullpen anyway. I don’t think Liz can pitch any more than I think Adam Eaton can pitch; they’re both terrible.

This is the problem with deciding that you have no desire to win and you’re just willing to throw anyone out on the mound. Adam Eaton is a guy no one wanted and he might well be the #2 starter if Uehara isn’t healthy.

Not that Uehara is much of a #2 starter anyway.

Friday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 13 March 2009 by Glenn Clark

Wake 68, Maryland 61

I just don’t see how Maryland competes with Wake’s size. I think they can compete; but I don’t see Eric Hayes keeping Wake honest with 5-6 shooting from outside again. I think this one dooms the Terps to the NIT.

UMBC 67, Binghamton 64

Binghamton has had a hell of a season; but I’ll go with the team that was there a season ago. I like the veteran presence of Greene and Proctor more than the studs the Bearcats have.

Morgan State 73, Coppin State 64

Lacrosse picks:
-Maryland 10, UMBC 6. It’s been a struggle to score for the Retrievers; who I don’t think can slow down the Terps enough to win.
-Syracuse 13, Hopkins 12. I think Hopkins will prove more in a loss than they have yet this season in a win.
-Loyola 7, St. John’s 5. I don’t think the Red Storm is as good as the team that beat Georgetown.
-Virginia 13, Towson 5. The Cavaliers are a different class than the Tigers.

Talk to you tomorrow.

Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 10 March 2009 by Glenn Clark

I understand why the Ravens are wary of giving a 35 year old receiver any sort of extension; I really do. But in the case of Derrick Mason, I think they’d do the right thing by adding an extra year to his contract. The Ravens have an issue at wide receiver right now; and they don’t have even as much as ONE wide receiver under contract past this season. I can’t see signing Derrick Mason as the type of thing that breaks the bank; and I don’t think Ozzie has anything to prove by ignoring him.

It really isn’t uncommon for a player going into the final year of his contract to want some more security. Even at 35, it isn’t unreasonable for the player who I believe was this team’s most valuable a season ago to not want to go into the final year of his deal.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say….

-Loyola 9, Bryant 5. Bryant beat Mt. St. Mary’s, but Loyola is a better team than Mount.
-Navy 8, Lehigh 5. It probably shouldn’t be this close; but a mid-week road trip doesn’t always lend to best performances.

Talk to you tomorrow.

Monday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 09 March 2009 by Glenn Clark

Thank God for Brenda Frese and her team.

For as upset and downtrodden as we get about the heartbreaks on the men’s side; Brenda’s team continues to give us memories and dazzling performances.

Yesterday’s ACC Championship was as good a basketball game-men or women-as I’ve seen this season. It was hard fought on both ends, with neither team giving up; and both teams doing amazing things to try to will themselves to a title. It was sparkling, it was fun.

Thank God for Brenda and those girls. Hearing the fight song after the Championship game yesterday was emotional again. Maybe not the SAME emotion as when Maryland beat Duke in 2004 on the men’s side; but pretty damn close.

Friday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 06 March 2009 by Glenn Clark

Maryland 80, Virginia 68.

I actually agree with Gary Williams (Save your jokes). This team is different than last year’s. I really think they have the heart to win tomorrow’s game. I’ll feel really stupid if I’m sitting in John Paul Jones Arena tomorrow and the Terps lose a road trip for the 3rd time since last summer that I’ve made.

As far as Towson, UMBC, and Loyola-I think they’ll combine to win two games in their respective conference tournaments. That being said; they’ll all lose in the first round.

-If this is the end for Matt Stover, he will be missed. He was everything for this franchise for a long time. I hope he will choose to retire instead of going elsewhere.

Lacrosse scores…..
-Loyola 11, Duke 10. Duke didn’t look that bad last Saturday, but the Hounds NEED to get this win to prove they can get over last year’s blowout losses.
-Hopkins 8, Hofstra 6. The Jays proved Tuesday they aren’t as bad as they looked against Princeton.
-Princeton 11, UMBC 7. The Tigers proved they were for real at M&T Bank Stadium.
-Maryland 13, Towson 6. One of these things unfortunately doesn’t belong….

Talk to you tomorrow in Charlottesville.

-Morgan 75, Coppin 71 tonight. This should be really good.

-The Terps will miss Jerome Burney the rest of the way. He had offered solid minutes inside for a team that doesn’t have a lot of solid inside minutes.

Talk to you tomorrow.
