That certainly looks like season ending torn achilles tendon.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||Zordich||
I have a friend who played in the NFL and at Penn St with Zordich and remains good friends with him still. Of course he said he is a great guy but that should be taken with a grain of salt. FWIW, he has very high character, integrity, and intensity. He also has great connections in Ohio that should help tremendously with recruiting. Of note Pelini definitely wanted to keep on the YSU staff. Durkin is the main connection bringing Zordich in. Harbaugh has obviously signed off on it.

I first met Stuart Scott in Allegheny Hospital in Pittsburgh before a MNF. He came in with abdominal pain and general malaise. During the surgery we discovered it was much worse than appendicitis.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||He just checked in||
Now playing in the bowl game.
|42 weeks 1 hour ago||In Canton||
In Ohio they think he's coming. Of note, they are to the point now that they WANT him to come. They don't want Michigan to be as bad as we have been. They are certainly not afraid at all.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I'll be there too||
Don't have tickets yet and forgot my Tigers hat so a yellow M hat will have to do. We are staying for Sunday as well.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||The Masters is the ultimate sporting event||
1. Yes, this is my favorite sporting event of the year. March Madness is great but I would only enjoy that more than the Masters if Michigan won the whole thing.
2. My most memorable Masters was the 1995 Ben Crenshaw after his mentor Harvey Penick had died. He broke down on the green after he sunk the putt.
Greatest shot, Tiger 2005 16th green chip in.
3. I want Rory to win. I'm looking for some younger guys to get behind and breakout to winning several tournaments a year.
My two picks to win would be Adam Scott or Rory McIlroy.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Thanks, great work||
Thanks for creating and sharing those. Now my office computer is ready for football season.
I have a good picture but can''t post it.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Tom Brady is an excellent representative for Michigan||
Getting Tom Brady involved in this program is such a great opportunity. He is an excellent speaker, teacher, and motivator. Everyone I know that has played with him has told me the same thing. I fully agree with keeping him as involved as he has time for.
I went to high school with Drew Henson and played varsity with him (he was a year behind me). When I was at Michigan, my freshman year with football ended nicely ('97). Sophomore year I of course wanted Henson to play because he was my friend, my teammate, and I knew first-hand what a phenomenal athlete he was. I didn't dislike Brady, I just wanted Drew to play.
I still remember the last game I watched Brady play at Michigan. We had made the trip to Miami to play Alabama and a certain Shaun Alexander. We were trailing most of the game but Brady kept leading us back and refused to let us lose. I remember walking out of the stadium after the win and marveling about how good Brady really was.
In my professional life, I had the privilege to train underneath Brady's orthopaedic surgeon and I got to meet him and talk to him a few times as a patient. He is very humble, friendly, and will talk with you about anything. There are many stories about him and Giselle being very kind to all the medical staff and having them over to their house. He remembers everyone's name. I had a Michigan tie he appreciated during office visits and even knew the name of my high school when I told him I knew Drew. He also played most of the 2010 season with a fracture in his foot. (This was not publicly disclosed until after the season and surgery)
Everything about Tom Brady being a hard worker, smart, team player, tough, and competitor is absolutely true as far as I know. I hope he continues to be an asset to this program.
I'm not sure he will have the time to be a coach for us in the future (he just built a small house in Cali), but being around from time to time as a consultant would certainly help.

Marshall was originally committed to Ohio.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||4.5-5 months||
I let my patients back to full contact at around 5 months. Usually their shoulder is feeling pretty good by 2 weeks. Takes a lot of physical therapy to get the motion back.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Just when I thought I couldn't hate softball anymore||
I can't take another minute. I'll just have watch the youtubes when it finally airs. This is more softball than I planned on watching for my entire life.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||eff the bulls||
Pistons taught Jordan what it would actually take to win championships. Bad Boys are my all time favorites. Bulls were a bunch of cry babies and deserved the whooping they got.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||Wings bar in San fransico?||
Been drinking wine all day in Sonoma. Now on Rochioli Pinot. Anyone know a bar in San Fran that's wing friendly?
|2 years 21 weeks ago||What a play!!||
Great pass and play by zetterberg and datsyuk
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Michigan over Ohio for the Championship||
|2 years 26 weeks ago||In for both books||
Looking forward to it. Money flowing in fast.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Technically||
He was correct. It's an ORIF using an IMN.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Fitz was open too||
Injuries very similar. Fitz had an open fracture as well.
Risk of infection is very low. This happened in a clean environment. Usually these are from car/motorcycle wrecks or farm accidents still with quick antibiotic administration have a low infection rate.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||Tibial rod||
This injury is very similar to Fitz, open tibia fracture. Treatment is a titanium rod inserted through the knee, across the fracture to the ankle. ORIF as stated above.
With regards the severity, this injury is easier to rehab from than a ligamentous injury (Lattimore). This injury may look gruesome but it actually has a very good prognosis.
I would expect him back next season. Fitz is on track for a return this fall.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Depends on activity||
I didn't read all the posts but' I'm an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in sports med. Typically an active 35 yo would get the ACL reconstructed. Under 40 I still recommend using an autograft. Cadaver could be an option however there is a higher failure rate under 40. Unless you are a professional football player, there is essentially no diference in hamstring vs BTB in terms of outcome. They each have their advantages and disadvantages. Some surgeons have a preference based on their skills or outcomes. I personally do whatever the patients wants after they have all the information. I also send all patients to "prehab" prior to surgery to relieve swelling, gain full range of motion and strength. This is essential to a good outcome. Good luck. If you are in Ann Arbor, Bruce Miller is excellent.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Interesting||
Interesting that this chart projects Illinois at home to be more difficult than Ohio in Columbus. I'm not sure I agree with that one.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||That's a concussion||
Hope he recovers for NCST. He was unsteady but at least didn't look like he lost consiousness. Tough injury.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Ridiculous||
I'm sorry but as an engineer and a surgeon I can't let this one go. Absolutely ridiculous.
Just as there is no evidence that taping prevents sprains, there is no evidence that taping causes bones to fracture in a different location than if there was no tape.
Also FWIW, I would much rather fracture my tibia mid-shaft than have an ankle fracture dislocation (Woolfolk). Ankles are much harder to return to previous level of performance.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Looking at video||
Looking at the video, I would guess that was an open tibia fracture. If that is the case, #1 definitely better than a ligamentous knee injury as he should be back for next season #2 that would explain why he's in surgery already. Open fractures are best treated ASAP. However it is obviously a horrible injury to have, and he has a lot of work ahead of him to come back.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||ND is worse||
As was covered in a previous post. Those of us at the ND game this year experienced loud music and an obnoxiously amplified band right up and through the formation and any audible or called sets. It only stopped right at the snap. I strongly disagree that Michigan stadium is more offensive in regards to the music and I've been to plenty this year. ND was totally classless.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||I agree with this apporach||
Has anyone in the know actually confirmed what the official policy is? Ace?
I understand giving his spot away to someone else if he takes other visits but as far as I know, we haven't filled his spot.
He is still a good player and could help our team out, if he's looked around and confirmed we are the best fit for him, why not at least talk to him?
He has been through a lot this year and everyone should cut him some slack IMO.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Cortisone is not indicated for this||
Cortisone is not appropiate treatment for this injury. In addition, it takes hours to days for the affect to be felt. If you've noticed relief from any injection instantly, it wasn't the steriod, it was the numbing medicine it was mixed with.
There is a huge difference between cubital tunnel syndrome (a chronic nerve compression syndrome) and a direct impact to the nerve itself. The direct impact causes a neuropraxia and is treated entirely differently.
There is absolutely no "quick fix" or injection or therapy that will effectly allow him to return to a game any faster from the sideline.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Only partially true||
The unlar nerve controls the the main flexors of the ring and small fingers, however it also controls the intrinsic muscles of the hand for all fingers including the thumb. (these muscles control the side to side movement of your fingers and thumb strength) In summary, damage to the unlar nerve affects the entire hand.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Tough to treat||
He most likely has a contusion to his ulnar nerve. There is no quick treatment or recovery for this. You just have to give it time to recover. Injury to this nerve results in numbness and weakness in your hand. The duration and severity of the symptoms vary greatly depending on the degree of impact and location. Sometimes recovery can be very quick, sometimes several days. You could see him grab his wrist and hand when it happened, that's because when this nerve is impacted hard enough, it feels like a knife has been stuck in your hand, not very conducive to playing quarterback. The only treatment is time.
