Done. I think I stuttered in there a bit...it was quick and heartfelt, though.

lulz...at least there wouldn't have been a non-conference collapse and infrequent Minnesota collapse.

I could be off base here and not reading properly....
...but Nebraska looks a hell of a lot better than Michigan right now, regardless of the above.
|10 hours 32 min ago||Thanks. And the more I||
Thanks. And the more I thought about my questioning the more I actually knew the answer as you point out. This whole head injury thing where we really cannot "see" the damage done is a scary thing. On site screening is a definite help in this effort to identify these injuries, but in my pure opinion does not do the full job needed to fully diagnose true brain injuries on the spot. That being said, the game of football is likely, hell it's quite obvious, a terrible sport and game for athletes, as much as I hate to admit it. I've played the game and in retrospect seen teammates and even opponents suffering from these seemingly legitimate head injury effects, on the field of play. Lineman and linebackers on damn near every damn play are likely suffering from these brain damaging effects (I know to some this isn't exactly a newsflash): See the recently deceased and unfortuante end-of-life scenarios of former NFL and lifelong football players whose brains have helped the science and understanding in all of this).

Am I wrong to say that even some/certain immediate concussions wouldn't show up on a CT scan? I.e. this whole CTE thing with the NFL...where we really don't know what is going on with the brains of atheletes who suffer "traumatic" hits to the head/brain. Is it wrong to say that some of this stuff doesn't show up immediately, via imaging, and even "personal evaulation"; and that's nothing against the people trying to help these situations, but it seems a really unknown spectrum at this point. And that last point shows that we should really err on the side of precaution on all of this "head injury stuff", even though the game of football is very similar to the hockey aspect in that injuries aren't shared for pretty ignorant reasons.
*agree with your most recent post, just a moment ago

I've noted I'm not an alum so I know what I type and opine doesn't hold much weight, but at this point I think you're on to something with this; real change needs to happen and current students are the first in line to help make this change come true (nothing against students who aren't in the mood for this bullshit tactic, unfortunate as it's repurcussions may really uphold).

These motherfuckers...I don't even know anymore. How incompetent do you have to be before you're released from you're godamn job. Especially Dave Brandon...aside from the fiasco over the weekend, the fact that this asshole still has a job going on Tuesday shows how ridiculous this has all become.
I'm not an alum but I truly feel sorry for you all for putting up with this and hardly being able to do anything about it.

Jesus...you're on here enough, do some more research on the subject.

Interesting. Thanks for the insight. Though, does he REALLY not do much with the team, because they've been a solid program for a pretty decent chunk of years now, even with Miles gone.
|16 hours 56 min ago||Exactly...Even to some Jim||
Exactly...Even to some Jim wouldn't suffice. I get it, a fan base this large and dare I say, informed(?), will be a bit polarizing at times but with this coaching thing, it's terrible topic to discuss

Oh those are different (species of maize)!
I'm sure it was in jest, and it was well timed. We need some good, dry humor these days.

....Nevermind. I'm just sick and tired of people nitpicking who can and can't be considered a Michigan coach.l

Nice! And man, I honestly didn't even realize or think about how much that song relates to our current issues with this program and our fandom...and just everything in general (though one could probably fit that song to fit any theme in life if so inclined).

When you see someone High Jump, as in track and field, they are doing the Fosbury Flop. Innocent, I promise!

|1 day 21 hours ago||Yesterday was a culmination||
Yesterday was a culmination of lot of bad and even more bad happened. Anything that could go wrong seemingly did. Morris gets his shit rocked, Gardner comes in FINALLY, and has his fucking helmet come off. What are the odds that little scenario happens? Well, for Michigan, those odds seemed pretty good yesterday. So the backup is of course no where near ready and instead of calling a timeout, Morris goes back in. Holy hell. Again, everything bad happened and even as Hoke is already under the microscope, all of the shitty bad that happened yesterday was amplified because what's already occuring with this terrible football program. It was an odd day and I wasn't even there.
|1 day 23 hours ago||It was a concussion.||
It was a concussion. Any hit like that to the brain will result in a concussion, the severity and symptoms varying from person to person and incident to incident, but a concussion nonetheless. Oh, and it was OBVIOUS as all hell, yesterday.
