Article detailing Yousiff Hemida’s fight with tragedy

Recommended Posts

Nice article, thank you for sharing.  I'm still not sure why he just didn't use his redshirt this year though.  Obviously that's a decision involving both the wrestler and the coach.  But it just makes sense to me- guy takes a off semester to deal with a difficult family situation, guy loses his mother and grandfather in the same week, guy isn't back on the may until January.  I'm about 99% positive Hemida gets a full ride, so I doubt it was a money thing.  Likewise, it's not like the Terps were pushing for a championship season and desperately needed his points.  In fact with UMD's only other NCAA qualifiers graduating, his experience and leadership would be vital with a young team next year.  Take the spring off, stay active on the mat and in freestyle (which he is good at), hit the weights, etc.  Well, I guess we'll never know.

Maybe McCoy knew he needed him to wrestle to possibly keep his job. 

If true, that marks an incredibly selfish decision.  I guess it's not fair to speculate and/or assume the worst, so I'll just chalk it up to one of the hundreds of strange decisions McCoy made over the last few years with the Terps.
