Connor Barth, a UNC alum and NC (Wilmington) native tore his achilles at a charity basketball game recently and will miss the entire season. The Bucs have signed vet Lawrence Tynes in his place.

This may impact the Bucs season as Barth was accurate and had very good range. Helps the Panthers indirectly but sad to see a local kid miss an entire season due to injury, even if he was a Tarheel. All the best for his recovery.

Yea, I can't imagine what would happen if a player like Steve Smith or someone hurt himself at say... a flag football game or some other nonsense? ;)

 

In all honestly though, it's worse than getting hurt at camp or at a game i'd say.

Lesson learned: Never do any thing for charity...unless she's hot.

It's just me, but I would be very careful playing sports outside of football if I was a lower tier/fringe guy.

That really sucks!!!!!!! Talk about a good guy.

When we were organizing a charity event for a free mental health clinic in Wilmington, Connor approached us about helping. We auctioned off a " date with Connor Barth". He is really a great person.

Sucks when bad things happen to good people. Wishing him a speedy recovery!!!!!!!

    • I like the use of props like in that old MTV allstar game where there was like 2 additional baskets above the main hoop. Could be interesting.

    • It seems like every year around draft time, huddle math kicks into full effect.  Somehow by puck 8 the top 20 prospects will magically be gone. Always amazes me.  Unless you are trading up to 1 draft a Peppers or Cam franchise can't miss prospect I don't see why this team would trade up with a pick in the top 10.  Use last years slump to your advantage and build your core.  Get 2-3 starting caliber (not necessary starters on this team but starting caliber) NFL players and some depth guys.  I like Fournette but there are other guys that can fill a role on this team who will be available.  No need to throw the draft away. Just my opinion. 
    • Oh hell, make it 28 points. Boy, the failcons could have used that.
