I respect the fact that you are probably a neuroscientist but how much have you actually studied this? I would like to see your sources with properly controlled samples when I can point to this from said Boston group:
Also, it is not just the Boston group behind this, and I am not sure what "very strong interest in marketing" means in this case. The other side has much stronger marketing interests.
There is very compelling evidence that the microscopic distribution of abnormal tau proteins (e.g. perivascular, deep sulcal, and superficial) is different in patients that show clinical symptoms consistent with CTE and have a history of repetitive brain trauma (Link)
Sure there is a sampling bias until healthy people start requesting their brains to be sliced up after they die. There is also likely some pathophysiological overlap and there have been publications about axonal trauma can up regulate the abnormal amyloid pathway (last link).
I believe concussion awareness is necessary and recognizing CTE as a distinct clinical enitity is part of that. Making contact sports safer is the ultimate goal.

Wait. It's crazy to do what now?

Probably a great DL coach and solid recruiter. Awful DC. Bad HC... he brought good talent to AA and we're enjoying an all-time great DL with really good DBs/Peppers. He could have been self aware, hired great people and been successful as a HC. He wasn't all of that. F Brandon anwyay.

Many people (not limited to the thread above) don't understand how research works. For someone to make an informed decision they should have more information than the people saying, 'well, duhhh.'
The end game is unknown at this point. Maybe they make changes to tackling techniques, equipment, or rules that result in very little risk. Maybe none of that shit works and we find another game to play.
If I knew there was a risk of brain damage, I would not have played. As it was, I went though 3 knee surgeries and have early arthritis. I knew that was a risk though.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe.||
... or they're trying help quantify risk and to fix it.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||How many of those guys would||
How many of those guys would you want on this team? Then pick 6 that would outplay Burke, LaVert, Stauskus, GR3, McG, THJ, and DMo.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||so... they seemed pretty||
so... they seemed pretty desperate. You think the Fisher era should have continued? He had a brief run that seemed like it was less about coaching than anyone who has ever coached.
|29 weeks 2 days ago||He didn't recruit the NT team||
He didn't recruit the NT team as a HC. If your whole deal is recruiting then keep it simple. You're a clown.

I don't want that as an alumus of UofM. K? I'll take the current situation a thousand times over.

Thank you! I hope he finds another team to support and probably already has. I'm serious but I don't say this as an AD.

I have a very reliable source that Wright is not totally clean wrt: Scottie Reynolds recruitment.
EDIT: HOW THE FUCK DO YOU THINK VILLANOVA IS MORE RELEVANT?

Started quite a bit when walton was injured.

That's as many as they won in more than twice the amount of time the OP covered... and he made the same number of non-Fab5 national championship games.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Because we know that you||
Because we know that you can't be the best at college basketball recruiting without making major sacrifices to your integrity, getting caught a second time would be a real bad look, and we're okay with the recent record (last two seasons notwithstanding, and it doesn't take much to think that that 'brief downturn' isn't the exception). I could go on.

I am sure they're restricted. It may not come out publicly, but they're restricted or they suck. You giving benefit of the doubt to Izzo means you're probably Sparty. Your history also suggests this.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||nope. you're just wrong.||
nope. you're just wrong.
Fisher has made the tourney 6 times in 16 years at SDSU, never got past the S16 (only went once) and has been accused of violating NCAA rules.
JB is about to make it in 6 out of 9 years here, 8 of 12 overall, with 3 elite 8s and a NTG appearance. No one is even sniffing a violation.

Every fan that feels likewise should stfu. thanks. you want amaker back?

he caught a nice pass from Peters...

Yep. Let's not put a fork in it just yet. Hand still hurts. Ha-ha. D Hart aches.

Bought tickets to a Rose Bowl as a student and they were just regular tickets. I'm not sure how good the seats will be though. Mine were up in a corner.
Who's gonna check UM student id's in FL anyway?

I think msu jumps OU. Otherwise looks about how it will be.

So did OSU. To the same team earlier in the season, by a week, sure. Not that it really matters but OSU has a better resume.

Exactly. Resources are the big difference. With B1G money and Under Armor money (Oregon lite) you can do a lot. Will almost certainly never win the B1G east before moving on, but getting into some nice bowls with the included tie-ins isn't out of the question. They both need to build programs. Maryland has better middle ground and ceiling if he stayed.

Robinson is a RS Sophomore... Nik was in the NBA by this time.

Morgan is playing hurt. It looks like a left shoulder/arm injury that definitely affected his play. It looked pretty clear between plays and especially after the last TD.
