It's a bombshell, and seemingly out of leftfield; but it's true.  Terrell Stoglin is leaving the University of Maryland after two seasons.  Apparently, he never bought into Turgeon's system and the coach's view for their future together.

The result is that Stoglin has been encouraged to leave the program.  It's shocking, but Mark Turgeon has a vision and that apparently doesn't include a shoot-first guard with an uncanny knack for finding the bottom of the basket.

Where does that leave the Terps? To put in simply, very young but very talented.  Once the incoming freshman join the squad, the Terps will have the most talent we've seen in years.  What they'll be lacking is a proven scorer who's not afraid to take the big shot in crunch time.  I'd be lying if I thought that Nick Faust was ready to step in and assume that role right away.  He's not, despite the fact that he is clearly the most talented returning player on the roster.

the Terps were a sexy pick to land in the Top 25 by a few prognosticators.  Now?  Who knows?  The Terps still need a reliable point guard (I'm not sure Pe'shon can get it done) and now they need to find 20ppg from the incoming class.

I trust Mark Turgeon.  The guy was born with a basketball in his hand; but this turn of events lowers my expectations for next season and that is an alarming reality.

Update: Now we're hearing that dual one-year suspensions for both Mychal Parker and Terrell Stoglin prompted their departures.  I have no word on what either did to warrant the suspension other than "violating the student athlete code of conduct".  That could mean anything but the story is developing and clearly there is more to it than what the initial reports are saying

Update II:  Word is that Terrell Stoglin failed three drug tests.  I'm not about to preach because lord knows that smoking weed is a relatively normal activity for college sophomores.  However, college sophomores that harbor dreams of playing professional sports need to hold themselves to a higher standard.  This is really hard to believe.  The program just can't catch a break.   This article was originally published at http://www.Turtle-Soup.com.
