Well this is not the way I wanted to start my week. Stoglin has decided to sacrifice his remaining two years of eligibility and enter the NBA draft. Pankey tweeted that MD fans weren't going to like the news today, but I had no idea the news would be this bad - then I read it last night. Thank God Sam Cassell signed with MD because we have some serious points to replace. That top 3 finish in the ACC next year looks less likely after today's news.
The wing spot appeared to be a strength for MD next year. With the loss of Parker and Stoglin, MD is seriously thin. Positions 1 - 3 will be manned by: Howard, Layman, Allen, Cassell, and Faust.
Late Aprils fools joke by chance? Please!!! I think heart broken sums up my feelings right now.
Could Stoglin's departure mean that the 2012 class isn't over? Does MD make a late run at Savon Goodman or Jerron Wilbut?
If Turge doesn't add another guard this year, I would not be suprised if he didnt add a PG and two wings in next years class. 2013 will definately be a 3 man class now, assuming 2012 is in fact done.
Update: Apparently Parker and Stoglin were to be suspended for one year for "violation of team rules." Link here: http://maryland.247sports.com/Board/67/UM-Release-On-Stoglin-and-Parker-9339893
Let the speculation begin..
