Get well soon Ondre!
only hurts our lack of play making ability on the DLine
get well Ondre. this really sucks.
Get well soon, Peewee!
A really crappy part of this is that he cannot take a medical redshirt because this was the 5th game.
I was wondering about this because in the press conference Hoke said they may need to appeal for a medical redshirt. Does that mean NCAA sometimes makes exception to the 30% of the season rule?
+1 for the Kansas City reference.
Hopefully, his recorvery is full and expeditious. Between the hospital and the staff, he's definitely in excellent hands, of course.
Well, fuck this.
Huge bummer, hopefully he rehabs well and can come back better than ever. Hate to see him lose out on any development, but next year was his year anyway.
Silver lining (if there is any for an injury) is that if we had to lose our #2 option at any defensive position, NT was proobably the one to do it. Washington is very good, and the games that are most likely to threaten our defense (NW, Neb, OSU) wouldn't see very much of the NT anyway. I could see us moving Henry over to NT for the rest of the season and be pretty much fine.
Damn. Get well soon Ondre
It sucks, but I guess every team goes through stuff like this and one can only expect a speedy recovery. Will be interesting to see how Mattison compensates, though, as teams like MSU and OSU will undoubtedly try to establish inside running even more and try to wear down what looks to be basically Washington and, I guess, Ash.
Thankfully, Washington is the starter and Ash has game experience. Black/HenryGlasgow should provide well enough dept for the other position that Washington/Ash can get the job done.
Also, I hope Ryan comes back just as good, if not better than before so Beyer can move back down to the line and provide depth there as well.
Wasn't either Heitzman/Wormley/Strobel a NT/DT before? I thought one of them was a tackle size that could still flip-flop back to inside if they HAD to.
Just put some tussin on it
Bottle gets low, put some water in the bottle...mo tussin.
Hope you recovery goes well
Has he played in every game so far? I think if he has only played in <4 games he can still get a medical redshirt.
He didn't record any stats against ND, but he played.
A heartbreaker. Had the feeling that he was in the midst of quantum leap. Get well, big fella.
This just really sucks.
DAAAAAAAMMIIIIT!!!!!! Any chance of a medical RS at this point??
No. If it had happened in the 4th game of the season, then he would get a medical redshirt, but since it happened in the 5th game, there is no chance of a redshirt.
that bites. Isnt the rule 30% of games played? 4 out of 13 = 30%
Even with the Big 10 championship game 5 out of 14 = 35%
Can't wait till you can walk again.
Get well soon, Ondre! I hate it for the guy.
For those struggling with the news:
That's 6 torn ACLs since the start of last year. Fuck.
This absolutely sucks. I feel for Pipkins as he was really making some strides, I thought, this year. I hope he can get a medical-redshirt, but more importantly, a complete recovery. This guy is a HUGE piece to our D-line moving forward.
The only silver lining I can see out of this is that Poggi and Henry get to step in more (Assuming Poggi isn't redshirting).
Such a Blow! Get well soon, Pipkins!
noooooooooo get well soon peewee
doing the Lachman test on his knee, which is never a good sign since all it tests for is a torn ACL.
I feel bad for him. Here's hoping he recovers quickly and without any problems.
You almost always do a Lachman's when any athlete reports knee pain. The trainers (or more likely, the lower-extremity Ortho) performing a Lachman's after a knee injury doesn't really provide any hints as to pathology.
Who gets those snaps now? True Freshman? Or do we just go smaller?
That seems most likely to me, FWIW.
Q Wash will probably have to suck it up and take more snaps, with Ash spelling him as needed instead of a true rotation like with Pipkins. I think Henry sticks at 3 tech since Black should be lifted for a bigger body in short yardage situations.
Next man up.
...go away. Stay away.
Georgia lost their other RB and a starting WR to ACLs Saturday, http://sports.yahoo.com/news/injuries-impacting-no-7-georgias-165708582--ncaaf.html
The AC Elephant is not making this easy on me.
Get well Peewee the team needs you and the fans are pulling for you...This is the time that seperates the men from the boys..you can take it easy and gain bad weight and not push hard...or you can come back stronger and more determined than ever..good luck kid
And no medical redshirt either. This just sucks. Hopefully he can stay in shape or this will cost him two full years.
Why no medical redshirt he's only played in 5 games?
Because he's played in five games...
Damn... Get well big guy.
He's fine he came back in the game on the next offensive drive
