What Does the Barnes Injury Mean for Maryland's Chances?
So what does everyone think about the injury to Kevin Barnes? As I wrote in today’s newspaper, Barnes is likely lost for the season, which is a significant blow to Maryland’s defense and an unfortunate end to the career of one of Maryland’s defensive leaders. Coach Ralph Friedgen could elaborate on the nature and extend of Barnes’s injury after practice and after Barnes confers with doctors.
The interesting thing is: Look at where the remaining opponents rank nationally in passing offense:
North Carolina State 80th
Virginia Tech 114
North Carolina 78
Florida State 74
Boston College 81
For that matter, look at the rest of the conference in the pass offense category:
Georgia Tech 113
Wake Forest 53
So no team in the ACC ranks in the top 50 nationally in passing offense. Oh, what a conference!
