Maryland starts the season tonight against Hampton in the 2K Sports College Hoops Classic benefiting Coaches versus Cancer. Gary Williams seemed in high spirits during his first radio show of the season last night. I think coach Williams has been reinvigorated in the off season and this season will be more enjoyable for the fans and Williams that the last two awful seasons.
Freshman Jerome Burney will have his foot examined this week and if he is cleared will begin practice immediately.
Freshman Eric Hayes and Greivis Vasquez will split time at the point guard position tonight but I have a feeling that Vasquez is slightly ahead of Hayes at the moment.
Apparently all you need is a Sweet Sixteen appearance and a high ranking to be an elite program these days. It also seems that you just need to be a sophomoric college paper hack to get hired by a newspaper as a "sports journalist".
