Injury Track (Basketball)

Not a good start. Already Hart, Hummel, and Terone are not 100%, and we haven't even started our first practice:

 

John Hart has foot surgery on 7/23 and out 12-16 wks.

 

"(Terone) Johnson has recovered from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in the summer, but remains out after a cyst below the knee that has bothered him."

 

"Hummel has progressed well despite having tendinitis in the non-surgically repaired knee." (forgive me seeing the glass half-empty, but tendinitis is never a good thing, esp. when we haven't even tested the knee with the brutal B1G)

 

Championships begin in the off-season. That's where the biggest improvements are made. It isn't enough just to show up during regular season but it's really during the off-season where guys spent hours honing their skill that makes a championship team. Already we are seeing our team in less than full strength, and I am not too optimistic. 

 

On the bright side, Barlow seems to be doing well (Painter said the athletic wing has been terrific in the offseason). But really, do you feel comfortable putting our season's hope on GDB? Having said that, as a junior, it's about time GDB matures and gets his act together.
