|Maryland Got "Their Guy"|
This is a great career move for Turgeon as well. He was wise in leaving a successful Wichita State team for a successful Texas A&M (Billy Gillispie to Kentucky) squad. Now he leaves for one of the best jobs in the ACC. This is also his first job at a "basketball school" in an area that is full of high school talent that wants to attend.
The bottom line for Turgeon is this: At Texas A&M he was playing second fiddle at a second fiddle institution in Texas. No matter how much he won in College Station, football would always be king. No matter how much he won, the state of Texas will always be Longhorn Country. Now he will get the notoriety he deserves on a national level, because he WILL win big at Maryland.
