Kevin Barnes out for season…me to try out for secondary

News out of College Park yesterday, and it’s bad. Bad. It’s bad news. Looks like they’re gonna shut down Kevin Barnes for the season after he injured his shoulder last weekend. The team isn’t saying what happened, but I’d guess he at least sprained an AC joint and may have torn a rotator cuff.

Excuse me one second.

GODDA**ITFU$%SHI&@$$HO&EMOTHERBI$C*N&RXF#$!AS$SHITCOCK!

Barnes is one of our favorite players around here, as he was crucial both as a playmaker and a leader. Thus, his loss could change the entire personality of this defense. Since he’s a fifth-year senior, he’s played his last down as a Terp. But since he’ll probably be playing on Sundays, I guess it’s the best thing for his career, blah blah blah.

This makes an already banged-up secondary all the weaker. They already lost CB Richard Taylor, and suddenly a lot of freshman are in the mix.

One thing’s for sure…everything will be decidedly less nasty without Kevin Barnes on the field. And that’s a damn shame.

Jordan Williams says he’ll play for Terps

Good news on the basketball recruiting trail. For a change.

It looks like coveted big man Jordan Williams has committed to the Terps.  If everything goes according to plan — and lately, that’s a BIG if for us when it comes to recruiting — the 6’9″ Connecticut product will join next season’s frontcourt as a freshman along with James Padgett. Williams is ranked 16th and Padgett 21st in Scout.com’s national rankings for 2009 centers.

Williams seems to have a good head on his shoulders, but given the team’s recent run of bad fortune, bad apples, and seeming inability to close the deal with recruits, perhaps you’ll forgive me if I hold off on popping the bubbly. But no matter how you slice it, it’s a welcome piece of good news. Goterps.
