Heads in the sand

Clemson 88 Maryland 73

Did We not know, in the backs of our minds, that this was a dangerous game for Maryland?

Washington Times coverage:

"A letdown turned into a meltdown last night for Maryland. The Terrapins lost to the ACC's worst team after beating two straight ranked opponents.

"Maryland, which had not lost to Clemson since 1997, travels to Miami on Saturday suddenly needing a victory to avoid falling back out of the polls and onto the NCAA bubble."

Turtle Soup was only slightly wary of Maryland's visit to Littlejohn. In the aftermath, however, he keeps a cool head and and takes a close look at the numbers.

That said, Oliver Purnell shuffles his lineup- and it works.
