DALY: Turgeon in ACC may be good as gold

Call me crazy — I’ve certainly been called worse — but I would have at least dialed David Robinson’s number and asked if he had any interest in college coaching. A three-quarters-court shot in the dark? Sure. But what have you got to lose? And consider what you’d have to gain: A brainy basketball legend with gold-plated local ties (Navy, Osbourn Park High School). Big men would beat a path to Robinson’s door, just as they flocked to John Thompson the Elder when he was taking Georgetown to the heights in the ‘80s and ‘90s.

But enough daydreaming. Maryland has wedded itself to Mark Turgeon, for richer or for poorer. For Anderson’s sake, it would help if it were the former.
