It's great.
That being said, I really wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't bring up tonight's game against Maryland one more time. If you're in town, especially if you're a student, you should go. Gates open at 8. Games starts at 9:15. ESPN2. Wear white, and be proud of your school. I'm not going to get on a soapbox about it, but the team could use your support.

A little more in-depth view from the Maryland side of things for tonight's game.

The rest of the team won a whole bunch of award, it's pretty impressive stuff. I for one will miss Blair Brown.
