Today in the SVP Lounge, CT, Dan and Matt kick off their fourth basketball season doing Red Shell Radio by previewing the much-hyped 2015/16 Maryland Terrapins men's basketball team. They answer a slew of BURNING questions about the squad, running down nearly every guy on the roster and dishing out HOT takes during this monstrous preview podcast.

Topics discussed include:

  • Hey guys it’s basketball season! We’re pumped!
  • Mark Turgeon from the HOT SEAT to the DRIVER SEAT
  • Entering the season, the biggest concern I have about this team is __________
  • Expectations could be a problem, Dan wants to be a top Ken Pomeroy rankings team
  • Romelo Trimble is the Big Ten preseason player of the year. Does he end up winning the actual award?
  • Obvz, Melo is the most important player on the team. Hopefully he doesn’t have to shoulder the bulk of the scoring work. Does his time at the Pan Am games affect his game?
  • How confident are you in Jaylen Brantley’s ability to effectively back-up Melo Trimble at the point guard position? He needs to take the ball up the court and spell Melo for 8-10 minutes
  • Dan will wear one of CT’s dirty t-shirts if Brantley plays more than 10 minutes a game
  • Is Rasheed Sulaimon the missing link? How does he fill the void left by Dez Wells?
  • The pod is excited about the fact that Sulaimon is a turncoat
  • The Terps have an embarrassment of riches in the front court
  • Diamond Stone has the luxury of progressing and not needing to perform immediately with Damonte Dodd and Michal Cekovsky
  • If there’s one thing Turgeon knows how to do, it's develop big men. All three of those guys could play well
  • What are the line-ups going to look like? Are they going big all the time? What will they look like when they go small?
  • Does Jake Layman emerge as a great, everyday player? Or will he continue to drift in and out of games?
  • Out of all the Mark Turgeon castaway’s that left the program following the 2013-14 season, who will have the best year? The worst?
  • CT hopes Nick Faust is junk out at Long Beach State
  • Which member of the show will make the biggest fool of themselves before/during/after the Princeton game in Baltimore
  • Does Dion Wiley emerge as a viable third guard or is he still another year away from being consistent?
  • Will Robert Carter be the second best player on the team? Don’t we always hear this about the transfer who sat out last season?
  • The guys share what they’ve been drinking throughout the show
  • Mark Turgeon is the star in this puzzle, but has the tough task of figuring out how to properly utilize nine to ten guys
  • How is this team’s mindset different from Turgeon's early disaster squads
  • Dan wishes Turgeon would have the team play faster, zone defense -- both have been effective at getting us back into games
  • Don’t forget about Jared Nickens!
  • Bench talk with Varun Ram, Kurt Auslander and Ivan Bender
  • Hot takes to end the show
