Mark Turgeon: 10 Bold Predictions for Maryland Basketball in 2011-12

More than a week after Maryland tapped Mark Turgeon to replace Gary Williams, people still don't seem to know what to think.

Can a guy with no local ties fill the shoes of one of the state's biggest sporting icons? Can he recruit? Can the coach whose biggest moment was at Wichita State translate his success to the ACC? Can he recruit? Can he wipe the whiteboard clean and devise game plans that best serve his new charges, instead of the other way around?

And then, of course, there is the recruiting question.

All indications are that Turgeon is already hard at work, applying the full-court charm offensive and even signing a new player. But given that three players have already asked out of their letters of intent, there is evidence he may not be winning every single heart right out of the gate.

His ultimate success, or lack thereof, is, of course, still anybody's guess.

And that's where I come in. Do you like it when people tell you their guesses about things? Well, that's great, because you're in luck. So here are the 10 boldest possible guesses I felt I could make without seeming stupid or crazy.  Please enjoy.
