Fear the turtle...sculpture...

I am pleased to point my readers (especially my Maryland fan readers) to the Turtle Wax blog, which I’m adding to the Blog Roll. Turtle Wax is all Terps, all the time, not just basketball.

Head on over there and read up: Turtle Wax Blog.

The nifty Terrapin sculpture is from the equally nifty Fear the Turtle website, which is sponsored by the University of Maryland and whose sole purpose, it seems, is to spread incredible terror of the mighty Terrapin across the land. As I understand it, chelonaphobia, a.k.a ‘fear of turtles’, is up 19% across the U.S., Mexico and Canada since it’s inception.


Isaiah Philmore out of the ACC basketball recruiting mix

September 18, 2008

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that Isaiah Philmore (F, 6’7″, 2009), once in the ACC mix with offers from Miami, Virginia and Virginia Tech, has narrowed his list to nine schools, none of which are in the ACC. We are no longer tracking Philmore as an ACC target.

Philmore’s list as of now is George Washington, Oklahoma State, South Florida, Providence, St. Joseph’s, Temple, UMass, Central Florida and Michigan.
