      That picture was taken 1/2 hour before tip off that’s just unfair 🙂 . Before we start to kill MD lets look at the area teams as well. Who else averages 12,000 people? MD ranks 25th in the country in attendance for 2013. How does that equate to a restaurant that no one goes to? Czabe you are a trolling clown.

While guys like Jay Wright were traveling to High School games 3 states away to watch recruits on a rare off-day, Gary was at Bentley’s getting liquored-up with Steve Bisciotti, or flying out to watch the ponies with his buddy Rick Pitino. Gary deserves credit for building the program back up after the NCAA probation, but he also deserves credit for letting the program slide after the National Championship.
