As I was leaving the court at Comcast Center after Friday's season opening game, I thought I heard Gary Williams mention on his post-game radio show something about his team being booed during its 29-point win over Bucknell.
Maybe my hearing is going along with some other things, but I never heard any boos.
I went as far as to ask a few friends who were at the game, and a couple of them said they might have heard a smattering of boos early on, but nothing vicious. A couple of them didn't know what I was talking about.
It might have come when the Terps were missing their first eight shots, but again, I never heard them.
If you were at the game (and not many can claim to that since the place was barely half-filled), I'd love to know if you heard the boos. I know I heard them last season when Maryland blew that huge lead at home against Clemson, but that was understandable given the situation and the point in the season.
But booing a team in its first game?
Williams has been known to motivate his team over the years by using that us-against-the-world mentality, and it usually has worked.
Is this real or imagined?
By the way, I am planning on get my hearing checked, just to be sure I won't miss them the next time.
