On the Maryland men's basketball team

The Terps have an extremely weak senior class with no direction or a consistent go-to guy. ... Gary Williams has allowed the program to sink to a low level; it's time to say, `Thanks, Gary, but a new direction is needed now.'

The senior class has been a definite bust, but the bigger issue is Gary Williams' future. I favor moving him out now but I doubt the administration will act for at least two more years. The obvious hope are the freshmen and the incoming recruiting class, which seems strong.

I wouldn't write off Gary Williams just yet. Eric Hayes and Greivis Vasquez are freshmen and James Gist is coming back next season. I think next season could be a good rebuilding year if we see the team is at least headed in the right direction.
