If you are a University of Maryland college basketball fan, there are plenty or reasons to be excited right now.

According to ESPN's Andy Katz, Athletic director Kevin Anderson and Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti are now in Arizona meeting with perhaps the soon-to-be former Arizona Wildcats coach, Sean Miller.

Bisciotti is a long-time supporter of the Maryland basketball program and a good friend of former coach Gary Williams. He will do anything to make sure Maryland basketball is back on top where it belongs, and hiring Sean Miller is definitely the best way to go.

Josiah Turner, Nick Johnson, Angelo Chol and Sidiki Johnson can all request and be granted release from their letters of intent to follow Miller if he leaves. All could contribute in some form or another immediately, especially Chol and Sidiki, who would be given the opportunity to start from the get-go. Adding one or both of them definitely would solve Maryland's front court issues next season and beyond, especially if Miller locks up Shaq Cleare for next year.

I would feel sorry for the people at the University of Arizona, as they looked to be righting the ship and found the right guy after Lute Olson retired. With Miller possibly leaving, they could be on their fourth or fifth coach since Lute stepped down. It definitely would bode well for Maryland though if they could pick up a few of their recruits for this coming season and beyond.

Be excited, Maryland. I feel we might start getting into a habit of cutting down the nets in April a lot.

And I do mean a lot.
