Zeros in a Half Shell: Maryland Basketball disgrace


More evidence that Thug U lives in College Park Maryland.


Of all the scholarship players who entered the Maryland men’s basketball program between 1997 and 2000 NONE of them graduated from the University of Maryland. Maryland was the only program in the country that failed to graduate any of its recruits within six years, a NCAA statistic analysis showed today.

The program’s graduation success rate, calculated by an NCAA formula, fell for the third straight year at a time when graduation rates are rising nationally for men’s basketball programs. The number shows that none of starters and top reserves of Maryland’s 2002 national championship team graduated within six years of entering school (Really? I thought that en route to busting caps off at the White House young Lonny Baxter would have picked up his degree in Thugology, HomoThug Anatomy or whatever it is you guys “study” at that place).


These people are very successful people,” Maryland coach Gary Williams said. “If you go to school to improve yourself economically, where have they failed (same place you have, in the classroom)? They make more than the average college graduate. Far more. If you’re judging them just based on getting a degree, then OK, they haven’t gotten a degree.”

HAAAAAAA and you wonder why his players don’t graduate. Nice attitude G. Maybe if you didn’t sit around figuring out how to improve YOURSELF economically and concentrated on what is right, which includes, but is not limited to, getting a damn college degree, your team wouldn’t be DEAD LAST in the entire nation for academic standing. I mean, you make the Maryland Football team look like, nah, forget it, they may have a better graduation rate than you, but they still look like some damn thugz….


(look at this Maryland student after a big win against Duke, these cats are animals)

I know, I know, Maryland’s academic standards are waaaaaay up. I know. I’ve heard it before. And all those rioters that burn cars, destroy property and beat the living snot out of random people are just townies from PG County looking to cause trouble. I know. But what about this riot tape from the 2002 National Championship “celebration,” looks like students to me:

Hey Murrland, you haven’t been a serious contender for the National Title since Juan and Machine Gun Lonny left. You’ve had more players arrested and suspended in the past four years than you’ve had recognized for any ACC or National Awards. Your recruits suck so much that no national recruiting analyst even takes you guys seriously (and Gtown is whoopin your candy ass in these recruiting battles every single year!!!) anymore. Your arena is a testament to your complete lack of class and Gary’s penchant for placing cash in his sweat infested grubby little pockets (and by the way, Comcast cable sucks..believe me, I have it)!!! Finally, your fans are the lowest form of humankind.


Believe me, Duke grads know this to be true because most of you miscreants end up washing our cars, mopping our floors, changing our oil, serving us our fries or receiving dollars from us at the local strip clubs.


YOU SUCK and you’ve been exposed for exactly what you are, a bunch of losers whose only delight comes from the occasional upset of a real program (with real recruits who actually graduate) like Duke, UNC, Wake, really, the entire ACC.


You’re a joke. Go back into your shell or go home and brush that tooth.. You will not make the NCAAs this year. You’re incoming class, outside of Braxton Dupree (and even he isn’t that hot) is a joke and your coach is more of a spaz than Psycho Tea.


(Stop cryin’)

To say your squad is suspect this year would be a gross understatement, hell, there isn’t one cat on the team worth a nickel except Greivius Vasquez and I’m sure yall pay him in pesos, not dollars, so I’m not even sure how that gets worked out. Enjoy the year and enjoy having had the rare distinction of being DEAD LAST in all of AMERICA in graduation rates. No child left behind? Even George Dubyah would be a genius compared to you losers. Now get back to washing my car and don’t forget wipe down my rims. You know the BMW Cabrio has a tendency to accumulate a lot of break dust, especially on the front tires.. OUT.

    Hey Lake, YOU SUCK!

    This is a b.s. post. I typically ignore these ignorant rants, but I couldn’t let this one go by.

    No, MD does not give their b-ball players fake 3-year sociology degrees and move their parents from Alaska and Chicago to Durham and set them up with jobs. Maybe they should, since the Duke-Media Industrial Complex seems to these kinds of tactics represent “everything that is right with college basketball.” A fair amount of these kids went to play pro ball somewhere, which is a much better scenario than a lot of college grads end up in. This is such a non-story.

    We are talking about a period of time that was 7-10 years ago….

    Who cares that Terps don’t graduate?

    Who cares the University of Maryland men’s basketball team was the only squad in the country that didn’t graduate a player within six years of enrolling between 1997 and 2000.

    […] Your team has a zero percent graduation rate (literally, your scholarship players never graduate…from […]

  3. TERPGRAD Says:

    I totally agree this kid lake is upset because the team he just ripped beat the number one team on the road. Dont be madd because gary can take 4 star recruits no one has ever heard of and coach them to beat teams stacked with 5 stars. And dont give me this shit that our fans are bad people i seem to remember a time in cameron when the crazies were chanting crack head mom to dixon. Thats so much more fucked up then us making fun of your skinny white boys who cant dunk. And I don’t know if you ever looked at a usa today ranking but maryland is a a top 10 public university, and myself and all of my fellow alumni friends either have great jobs or are attending grad school. And be happy at least maryland can beat that nba team in carolina, i would bet money right now you pussies get your asses handed to you.

  4. Lake Arlington Says:

    Haa. what? Maryland barely beat UNC, which was a good win no question, but they lost to Ohio and American…Maryland has always been a spoiler team, but they and Gary lack the character to play hard every night out…

    Come on man, nobody had a chant about Juan Dixon’s supposed crackhead mother. You Maryland thugs are ridiculous with your propaganda to justify your trashy behavior. Top 10 public University? So what.. believe me when I tell you I’m not impressed.. Go burn a car.

  5. Lake Arlington Says:

    Terp grads are awfully quiet today.. I wonder why. LOL

  6. Jack Says:

    Wow. We beat a good team and some fool goes on a trash rant, and we are supposed to care. Terps are what we are. Some of the fans are pretty damn bad, and ought to be punished.
    It is a shame that the players don’t get a degree. A shame that GW doesn’t push more for it. Oh well. The system allows it. Don’t complain about the team that takes any kind of advantage of it, just show how this hurts people other than the ones who make the choice not to finish with a degree.

    or just shut the heck up ya dipwad

    Basketball Grad Rates: Selected Others
    North Carolina 82%
    Syracuse 75%
    Santa Clara 75%
    Michigan St. 73%
    Gonzaga 55%
    Duke 50%
    Connecticut 50%
    Kansas 43%
    Kentucky 33%
    Georgia Tech 31%
    Maryland 30%

    Still not great, but it does show that an ignoramous with an agenda will go to any lengths to prove an illegitimate point. IE, embellish, shout louder, exaggerate, berate…the faint of heart are sure to follow. If you’re genuinely interested the ACTUAL graduation rates of various schools, you’ll need to check out “The Bootleg’s Graduation Rate Analysis” which takes into consideration the ACTUAL percentage of players graduated and discounts any and all indiosyncracies built into the NCAA’s tabulation process.

    Hey Lake,

    You are a racist prick. Ghetto U? What the hell is that supposed to mean? Maryland was the first ACC school to integrate which is more than we can say for dook and their notoriously racist fans. Remarks like “Ghetto U” only serve to reinforce the sad and racist history of dook’s elitist and bigoted alumni. Way to be on the wrong side of history, Dook fans!

    I know facts are inconvenient to your thesis, but no Maryland student has ever been arrested in one of those post-game riots. All of the arrests that occurred were non-students who just joined in on the celebration.

    But hey, I guess if insult is the highest form of flattery, then Dook has much to be proud of. Check out: Now that is a professionally done and carefully thought out site. Just slightly above this piece of shit site.

  9. Lake Arlington Says:

    I don’t recall EVER saying “Ghetto U” dumbass…. Thug U is what your school is… Ghetto U is some creation by a mental midget like yourself so that you can strengthen your weak arguments as you ride on my nuts on my site.

    Right, on one hand Maryland had to be integrated, then on the other, it doesn’t have a racist history? All ACC schools have a bigoted history, how is what I’m saying bigoted?

    Right, just because Maryland doesn’t graduate any of their players and your students riot no matter if they win or lose, I’m suddenly racist? I get it. They haven’t been arrested? First off, how could you know that to be true and secondly, so what? Does that mean they aren’t committing crimes, destroying property and showing the entire ACC how ridiculous your school is?

    TruthaboutDuke is well thought out? I’ve been to that site before, I actually think it’s funny… the difference between you and me, is that I don’t dick ride the dude who puts that together, I just laugh and move on.. believe me, I’m not flattering Maryland… and it’s imitation that’s the highest form of flattery, not insult, you idiot. Go back to school…
