Mosley Expected To Start

Freshman guard Sean Mosley went down midway through the second half Wednesday night against Duke with an apparent ankle injury. He left the game but later returned to action, with a noticeable limp.

Earlier today, Gary Williams said Mosley practiced for about half of Friday's workout and was expected to participate fully in today's session.

"I’m just gonna put him out there and see what he can do," Williams said. "He wasn’t complaining, but see, with Sean you never know. He wouldn’t tell you if he couldn’t play. Some guys you have to push to get back. With Sean you’ve gotta take it easy and make sure he’s okay."

Williams said he expected Mosley to start tomorrow night against North Carolina State and that the injury -- which was to Mosley's left ankle -- was not as severe as the right ankle injury that limited Mosley during preseason. Mosley entered the starting lineup Jan. 31 against Miami and has established himself as a consistent defensive presence since then.

What a joke. Prisbell and Yanda make INSINUATIONS in the Post about Terp recruiting and then pretend to OBJECTIVELY cover the team. If this is UNBIASED journalism, I am glad the print industry is DYING. How about mentioning Nike/Thompson link or following through on PROMISES to investigate shady AAU dealings instead of this anti-Maryland CRUSADE. Where are the mods????

I didn't see much insinuating about it. The article just came right out and suggested there was something off with the Terps' recruiting.

Not that it was corrupted, or engaging in shady practices -- in fact, the opposite. They portrayed the Maryland coaches in a favorable light in comparison with guys like Calhoun. They certainly didn't extoll the virtues of those AAU summer-league types as a class. Gary's objections to that circus were recorded.

The one thing they did emphasize was the number of top-tier athletes from this area whose parents (as well as the kids) suggested that Gary didn't seem to want to deal with them.

So what's so unfair about that?

I don't know why you can't be a loyal Maryland fan and still question some aspect of the recruiting process...

I totally support Coach Williams and appreciate all he's done for UMD. I did not mind the Post series on recruiting and in fact , if you read all 3 parts, I think it showed Coach Williams in a positive light. There is nothing particularly negative in today's article except for the father's (funny) comment about the shoes. Also I appreciate the extra coverage UMD gets from The Insider. Is there a Hoya insider? Hokie insider? UVA insider? I'm asking; I don't know. I enjoy reading the blog and all the comments even when I don't agree with them. Maybe some of us take it too seriously sometimes.
