B. Maze, Be Amazed

Former Terps point guard commitment Bobby Maze has made quite an impression on Tennessee fans.

The Suitland native and Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College transfer has staked his claim on the Vols’ starting point guard job (see below), and recently offered his freestyle take on UT’s squad for the upcoming season on You Tube.

In the video, he also makes quick mention of his all-too-brief stint as a Maryland commitment.

Be amazed
This thing is not a game
Who am I to blame
Maryland never change

On the court, Maze has impressed the local media in Tennessee with his performances in the Rocky Top League. After watching Maze at a summer league game last week, The Mountain Press’ Jason Davis said he was ready to ‘pencil him in to this fall's starting lineup.’

Although he only scored 14 points, Maze delivered nine assists and showed a great ability to penetrate the lane and find the open man.

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about Maze was, in warm-ups he was taking mid-range jumpers and nailing them. Far too many modern players neglect the mid-range game in favor of jacking up ill-advised threes. Maze looked content to shoot the 15-footer, and he looked proficient at doing it. That's something UT needs.

Hope his NBA career works out. His Rap future is pretty much a dead end.

Maybe we are better off with out Maze. Seems like a real team player.

Glad he found a school.

Since the ACC has shut the door on career resume's like Maze and Evans, can someone please answer where our program is and do we have a shot of recruiting and playing competitively ever again. Maze and Evans were not the answer, but that was Gary's best answer, at best a no answer. At what level toward the conference bottom does this leave us?

I'm more embarrassed that we ever recruited this guy in the first place. Wow.

As for our program....until Gary decides to do some recruiting himself, I am afraid it won't improve. For whatever reason, he is unwilling or unable to recruit.

I'm ready for a coach willing to give 110% to the position/university.

Does Maryland have any eligible recruits for the 2008-09 class yet?

I think that it is high time we gave the head coach at Loyola very serious consideration as the new head coach at Maryland before someone else steals Jimmy. If not now, then when?

Keep in mind that Rap and Hippity Hop are not considered to be music
