umm. No staff ever had a "press conference" about a verbal commitment. It's against NCAA rules for a school to talk about kids until they have signed a letter on or after NSD. You can bet that there will be a PC on NSD.

What's funny is that my kid applied (and got in) to Mines this year. When we were visiting over the summer, the student tour guide was telling us how Mines was a bit of a football powerhouse and that their coach was considered an offensive genius. Fast forward a couple of months and Brian is suddenly talking about Bob Stitt on the podcast and on the blog.

Oregon State Athletic Director Bob DeCarolis is a Michigan guy and friends with the Harbaugh family. Jimmy to Oregon State?
(It feels ridiculous to put this s here but someon will think I was serious if I don't do it. DeCarolis is a Michigan guy)

FWIW. I once wrote an email to Hollis over a nasty incident involving hockey. (We all know the one). He expressed concern over the incident, politely defended his school and then invited me to lunch.

Great work! As a practicing emergency physician, I agree with your overall message and strongly support your effort to inform.
I will, however, disagree on you continued use of a concussion grading scale. Both the American Academy of Neurology and the Concussion in Sports Group have dropped grading of concussion from their recommendations. When I talk to patients and their families, I do not use the grading scale for a number of reasons:
1) The scale had no prognostic value. A person who graded as "mild" could have cognitive effects that are more significant and longer in duration than someone graded as "severe." As you point out, recurrence of concussion, especially soon after a previous concussion is the most important factor.
2) When a concussion is termed "mild," it just serves to downplay the severity. Families always want me to tell them its "mild" and their future scholarship athlete can go to practice tomorrow. They get bummed when I tell them "no."
3) Its not an accepted diagnosis anymore.
I have a huge problem with Brandon using the term "mild" in his press release because no medical staff person, especially a neurologist who is a world expert in concussion, would use that term. I agree with you on the "probable" piece. You either have on or you don't.
Overall, great work! Just had to nitpick on a nursing colleague a little. ;-)

I just don't think it is an issue in a competent coaching staff. I think that Hoke has created a setting where people are afraid to communicate with him. I think a better managed team doesn't let this happen.
