None of that mattered against a sloppy Georgia Tech squad.
Now, everybody knows we have some residual love for the Terps since that’s how we grew up – under the spell of the Lefthander. Yep, we were lucky enough to have a parental unit that would drag our butt to old Cole Field House to see Lefty’s boys – John Lucas, Len Elmore, Tom McMillan, Mo Howard, to name a few. The icing on this cake was when Mrs. T.A.H. (a devout Tar Heel) bought coach Gary Williams a drink in a Washington D.C. watering hole and was thanked with the parting shot “anybody who hates Duke is O.K. by me.”
Over the past few years, we have remained perplexed by Maryland’s inconsistency and inability to replicate the National Championship caliber-squad of Juan Dixon, Lenny Baxter, Chris Wilcox and Steve Blake. But, we still have a soft spot for the kids of College Park.
