A Message to Fans from Coach B and the Team . . .

On behalf of our entire program, a very heartfelt “thanks” goes out to each and every one of our fans that made the trip to the 2009 ACC Tournament in Greensboro, NC and all those that have supported us at any other time. In fact, “thanks” doesn’t seem like a strong enough word to express our feelings of gratitude. Simply stated, we couldn’t get it done without you.

What a beautiful sight, to be playing in Greensboro, NC and see a “Red Sea” of fans urging us on. There were certainly moments over the weekend when our team was tired and faced adversity and your vocal support helped our team reach down and find something extra in the tank. It propelled us to victory. The ACC is so competitive and full of tremendous programs, that every advantage we can get is crucial. I don’t think there was a headcount, but on championship Sunday, I believe that Maryland had a sizeable advantage in the stands.

I have no doubt in my mind that we have the best fanbase in the ACC. What we saw this past weekend, where so many of you made the 5-6 hour drive, combined with the fact that we own the ACC Attendance Record Book leaves no room for debate. We know you sacrificed your own time and money for us, which made us even happier that we could deliver an ACC Championship to you.

The players now have a couple days off to catch up with schoolwork and let their bodies recover from the grueling weekend and regular season. Our staff is already busy on the recruiting trail trying to find great kids worthy of your support. We will continue to do our best to keep this thing rolling.

From all of us, thank you again for being the ACC’s best fanbase. Go Terps!!!

What other coach would take the time to write a note like this to an informal (yet extremely valuable and informative - not to mention wonderfully Terp-biased) blog. Coach could clearly take the sole credit for this awesome win but she chooses to share the credit with her fans. Makes me love my Terps even more!!!

Any chance someone tivo'd this and wants to either upload it, or send it to me? Pretty pretty please? With Cherries and chocolate on top?

Over here in Aus, it's a bit hard to see the Regional FSN games ... it's on again, 15th of March, apparently too.

Thanks to Coach B. and the entire Terps family for acknowledging us fans. Though I couldn't make the trip I watched the semi-final and championship games with close friends back here in Maryland. I had to wear the same outfit both days to ensure victory (well some things were changed!LOL)This latest accomplishment in a LONG Maryland tradition is wonderful! Congrats, congrats, congrats.
