Just a quick note here that Illinois DE Michael Buchanan, who will be a senior this year and is expected to be the anchor piece of the Illinis d-line, broke his jaw in a fight. IT is wired shut to heal.
My cousin had to have his jaw surgically broken to correct a breathing problem and had it wired to heal. Despite excellent nutritional science, you'll still lose weight if you can't eat, and lose weight he did. About 40 lbs in the 6 weeks or so he had to be wired shut.
I'm thinking Buchanan isn't going to be at playing weight till October at the earliest, and he'll probably have lost a good deal of strength and stamina too. Bad sign for Tim Beckman's first year?
