That info usually isn't made public, a lot of it is seen better at the time of operation anyway. The big thing to understand is that acl recovery cannot really be that well predicted. Two people can undergo the exact same procedure and one be ready to go months before the other.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||Depends on if other||
Depends on if other structures are damaged. Meniscus tears are frequent with ACLs, as are cartilage injuries. Jake was a special case and I wouldn't count his recovery as the norm. Can he be back in 7 months? Yeah but to be 100% it takes a few more months and if he is sore or still weak then it is prudent to give him more time. Not Derrick Rose time but time nonetheless.

He's right. This thread is for michigan at Iowa. Michigan vs. Iowa is incorrect. Eat turds.

He decommitted because of a bad season? So should you commit to a school only if it had a good year? I bet a lot of kids wish they hadn't turned down auburn. Winning is unpredictable. How bout staying with a school you committed to and be one of the ones to make a great team rather than needing others before you to make the team great. Also, I'm sure all the whining bitches complaining all day on this site has no impact on the myriad of 17 year olds reading this site to stay up on their potential future teams. Keep up the work guys, you are all helping this team tremendously.

I would hate to have you and most of the posters on this site on my team. A bunch of quitters with no resolve. Down by 2 scores? I guess it's quitting time. Let's just lose before we start so we don't feel like failures. You suck.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||reality check||
I'm not sure if you understand how this game is typically played. Everyone likes to get on their high horse and demand that our players play with such class and boyscout honor. This is a very violent game. Most of the time, our players are trying to mame the guy across from them. It is war. It is an angry affair. Sometime emotion gets the best of you. Sometimes choking the guy you are going against or punching the guy in the throat with the ball when there is a fumble happens. With the amount of video analysis now this is getting more and more exposed. But make no mistake, the big uglies on the team are not there to play paddycake. They are out for blood. Like it or not, that is the game of football, and if you played on a competitive team, you would know that this is the norm. Sorry to burst all your sensitive bubbles. This is a game for men with anger and cock and balls. It is changing unfortunately, and it will soon be flag football and it's all going to be all your fault. Fuck me I quit America.

Why didn't you tell us that a few weeks ago before we got our hopes up?!?!

|51 weeks 6 days ago||Speeds||
I have to disagree about the slightly slower speeds. The Merritt has a bunch of hills, but there is one cop assigned to it per county. You can go pretty much as fast as you want. I have lived here for most of my life, and never got pulled over on the Merritt despite a very heavy foot. It is the Hutchinson parkway in new york, then runs into the Merritt.

I usually think Heiko is a bit out of his league when he asks the coaches questions about football that show how much he still needs to learn the game, but I thoroughly enjoyed his writing here. As he learns the game more he will become a better and better asset to this site.

777 207 3070
Super macho man code. I didn't know the Tyson one so I had to beat Super macho man first to fight Tyson. To this day I can beat Macho man without him touching me because I did it so many times while getting worked by Tyson.

I can't stand when you guys beat on Danny...he was on my high school team. Great kid, unfortunately this play will haunt him.

It is unwavering and constant. Why do anything else on such a night?
|1 year 29 weeks ago||You are correct. If Denard||
You are correct. If Denard has a repeat issue this will be corrected likely with an ulnar nerve decompression/transposition. That's what Andrews would do (I trained under him).
|1 year 29 weeks ago||They are very unlikely to be||
They are very unlikely to be linked. Superficial staph infections should have no bearing on the ulnar nerve which is deep and relatively protected from where his issue was before.

Orthopaedic surgeon here....fix it. Rehab to get your range of motion back first. I recommend autograft, not cadaver graft. Patellar tendon is my choice but hamstrings are good too. You cannot ski without an ACL without risking repeat injury.

|1 year 45 weeks ago||Your question||
I am an orthopaedic surgeon, with a fellowship in sports medicine. Elbow issues with throwers can sometimes be difficult to pin down, as often the pain is vague and difficult to pinpoint. However, an MRI will usually show anything with structural damage that needs to be addressed (typically the ulnar collateral ligament, or "Tommy John Ligament" is a biggie with baseball players). Part of evaluating the elbow in a thrower should always be paying particular attention to the ulnar nerve. Tapping the nerve might cause a sense of shock going down the arm into the little and ring finger, or may cause pain at the elbow itself. To look more specifically at the nerve, EMG/NCV testing can be done. I disagree with the statements made that sports medicine docs overlook nerve issues, as anyone with any type of competence will have that high up in their differential.
Another problem that is seen occasionally with baseball players, but is rare, is called thoracic outlet syndrome. That is a compression of the nerves way up in the shoulder area that occurs in the cocking position of throwing a ball, and can cause sporadic weakness. It is a great masquerader, but that is something you have to think of too with an odd weakness/numbness story. Let me know if you have any more questions.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Seriously? This is football.||
Seriously? This is football. This kid is soft. Coaches push, they yell, they slap you upside the helmet. If you ever played the game you most likely experienced it. It is not assault, it is the way the game is. If you don't think Hoke or Mattison grabs the players and shoves them in the middle of practice you are delusional.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||You can't just make things up||
You can't just make things up about concussion testing and state them as fact. A brain CT will likely show nothing in a concussed player unless they have a bleed. Also, reflexes and coordination are not an indicator of concussion. You make me angry.

1008 Oakland. 13 kegs in a kiddy pool full of ice. That was my 2002 graduation party idea. Split between 10 of us. It was worth every dollar of my dad's that I spent.

A young Cato June took me and a few now lifetime friends to a football party during orientation. They charged us $5 for a cup. Rule number 1 is never charge for beer. Boom, frat boy'd.

Alabama fans can drive but it is a real shitty drive, and most can't afford flights, let alone a dentist. We will show up in force. I like 50/50.

Can someone explain why these videos always freeze and don't load correctly for me. Whether I am watching the embed or on mgoblue it always freezes and makes me want to light my face on fire.

I think Denard wins. A 40 is not the same as a 100 meter. Plus Bolt would be mesmerized by Denards smile and start crying at the mere sight of such a thing.

I lived in Albany for 9 years and moved last year (thank god). Anyway the local alumni chapter watched games at Jillian's downtown. Not a great showing and the tv's and food sucked. I chose to watch at home so I could scream in peace.
