The Wizards have been one of the least successful franchises in pro sports for three decades. And they’ve never started a season worse than this. If they don’t start winning, there will be more paper bag heads. Oh yes, there will be more.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER
* The A1 story on Maryland leaving the ACC.
* Tom McMillen absolutely shreds Maryland’s decision-making process.
* Students react to the news.
* Wizards game story. There is humor here, I think. Or something.
QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
McMillen, from Mike Wise’s column:
“To totally disregard the athletes and have this crammed down everyone’s throat over a weekend is just awful. This is the kind of thing that can be the tipping point for uncompensated athletes in money-making sports, who are left without any say and are basically becoming indentured servants to big schools.”
WHAT TO WATCH TODAY
Maryland hosts Lafayette at 8 on Comcast SportsNet. Georgetown faces Indiana at 10 on ESPN. All TV/Radio listings are here.

HANSBROUGH AND VESELY
This will make you feel better. Tyler Hansbrough tosses Jan Vesely around as if he were made of straw.
TERPS AND B1G
A great Diamondback graphic on Maryland in the Big Ten.
