When everything seems wrong, injuries like the one suffered by Jahvid Best bring everything into perspective. I fear the worst for this kid. Send up your prayers everyone.
Mike Lantry, 1972
Well said. It looked bad when they took him off the field.
edit: there's no damn way that was just a concussion.
He had a mild concussion last week. If he had one this week, it's a major one and it's going to end his season.
I'm only premed, but man that decerebrate posturing he had is not something you want to see
Explain "decerebrate posturing" to a Lit major.
After he lands on the ground you can see how his arms are stuck in a fully extended position. The more general term is abnormal posturing. Decerebrate refers to extension of the arms (or legs). It's a sign of a pretty damn serious brain/cord injury.
It's posts like this that make me happy to be a Michigan fan. I challenge you to find "decerebrate" on another football forum.
I'm not trying to be douchey or pedantic here... and I'm sure you had the best intentions when posting this.....
But dude... Did you see what happened to that kid? Is this really the right context for a congratulatory pat on the back to Michigan's fan base for being intelligent?
Thanks for the info. I've seen that arm and leg extension two other times this year (UDub vs. ND and Iowa vs. MSU) and I can't ever remember seeing it before.
FUCK. Wikipedia is reporting that he has died.
EDIT. Wiki has removed their statement that he was pronounced dead at 7:35pm.
honestly: I thought he might be.
Err don't believe everything you read on there.
Stephen Colbert didn't single handedly save the black bears?
I gasped audibly when I read this. Thank God Wikipedia is wrong.
Thoughts and prayers with you, Jahvid.
It takes a pretty pathetic individual to do that kind of wiki-trolling.
Wow. Thanks for posting that. This is a situation where being an athletic freak may have been a bad thing. Being able to get that much hops is great most of the time, unless you get hit in the air and fall in a way that you weren't expecting. I hope he's alright.
Oh Jesus Christ that's awful..... just saw a replay on FSN... Wow. Thoughts and prayers go out for him, hope he's ok.
you really say a prayer for him? Just askin
They just announced on the game broadcast that Best has a concussion and feeling in all his extremities. Very good news given how serious the injury could have been.
family the best.
I've never seen anything like that in a football game. That posturing was haunting. Thank God he seems to be okay, best wishes to him.
