Uh-oh. This doesn’t look good. This afternoon a five-page article about the Terps appeared on the WaPo home page. Evidently it’s all about recruiting. And it’s just the first in a three-part series. The name of that series? “Missed Shots.”
Here’s a choice excerpt:

A review of NCAA tournament records shows that no national champion in the past 18 seasons has regressed so quickly. How did this happen? Interviews with more than 50 coaches, players and others knowledgeable about the program reveal many explanations, and Williams, 63, is central to each of them.
