I grew up in Maryland in the DC suburbs watching the Terps. I loved watching Lefty, Len Bias, and the whole slew of great Terrapin players. The ACC is the best conference in basketball. Back then we had Dean Smith and the great Carolina teams and players. It does not get bigger than Jordan. Right? Right. So that's why I love the Terps.
I went to school at UVM so enough said about that!
So today my worlds collided.
UVM announced that they have hired Mike Lonergan to take over for Tom Brennan who is retiring after this season. Lonergan is an assistant coach at Maryland.
How weird is that??
I'm all smiles!
[UPDATE: I just have to include these comments from Lonergan posted on the Terps Web Site. You KNOW this means a UVM-MD game as soon as they can schedule it. Wow!!]
I hope the Catamounts get in if they lose in the American East tourney.
If the Cats lose in the America East to BU or maybe Northeastern - I think that they have a shot to get in. If they lose to Stony Brook then they are finished!
Of course I think that the'll sweep the America East, because if they make the finals the'll play the Championship game in Burlington.
The America east will be tough. Fortunately BU Northeastern probably will have to play each other.
