Greetings from Raleigh, N.C., where I’m about to go get some dinner after an interesting day (and a very engaging one given the sort of stuff I got to witness during the early afternoon).

Steve Whyno clearly left everyone with more than enough goodies from this afternoon’s basketball exhibition. The goal on this end is not to get Wally Pipped.


Obviously, Jin Soo Kim might be a little more credible than I was giving him credit for as well. If he is a 15-minute-a-game-guy rather than half that, it will make Maryland a very curious team to defend throughout this season.

And, yes, Landon Milbourne and Cliff Tucker are going to be the Terps’ stat-stuffers this year (beyond Greivis Vasquez). For those who indulge in a fantasy college basketball league (to the consternation of the NCAA), they would be ideal selections.

On the football side, Maryland didn’t receive much help today. Clemson is officially pretty much done in the ACC’s Atlantic Division, but both Florida State and Wake Forest capitalized on the Terps’ loss on Thursday.

I’ll have a rundown of the league’s scenarios when before the end of the night, and obviously plenty more tomorrow in the regular Sunday features (D1scourse 30, Tracking the EagleBank Bowl, goodies from Ralph’s Sunday teleconference).
