Brian Goodwin suspended for 2011 College Season

Ouch.

Sophomore OF Brian Goodwin has been suspended for the entire spring semester for "violating university policy," and will therefore miss the entire college baseball season.  No idea what he did, but it sounds like his malfeasance wasn't baseball related.  If forced to speculate, I'd say it sounds like serious academic misconduct.  But again, that's pure speculation.

For those who don't follow college baseball, Goodwin had a strong freshman debut at UNC and impressed scouts a whole bunch this past summer in the Cape Cod League.  Along with ASU's Deven Marrero, Stanford's Kenny Diekroger, and St. John's Jeremy Baltz, Goodwin was one of a handful of college bats in the discussion as potential high first-rounders in the 2012 draft. 

This will be a major blow to UNC's chances this year, and a year of missed development time will likely be a pretty big blow to Goodwin's draft status as well.
