- We see slices of ex-players’ brains tainted by chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE.
- We meet a surgeon who helped discover the disease, and who talks about how the politics of football essentially destroyed his career.
- We go inside the NFL’s odd decisions to rely on physicians like rheumatologist Elliot Pellman, who had no real competence in assessing or treating brain trauma, to set the league’s health and safety strategy.

be someone with no ties to Michigan, must like Montgommery(Iowa/Wyomming) who they have had on a short list for some time.
Hoke and friends would always have a list of possible coaching replacements as much as they have list of possible recruits.
Regardless it will be a great hire withTremendous upside fergodsakes!

is subject to change dramatically with new testing. Until now CTE dx was only possible through post mortum examination and staining.
This is about ti change dramatically.
CTE found in living ex-NFL players.
Brain scans performed on five former NFL players revealed images of the protein that causes football-related brain damage -- the first time researchers have identified signs of the crippling disease in living players.
Researchers who conducted the pilot study at UCLA described the findings as a significant step toward being able to diagnose the disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, in living patients.
"I've been saying that identifying CTE in a living person is the holy grail for this disease and for us to be able make advances in treatment," said Dr. Julian Bailes, co-director of NorthShore Neurological Institute in Evanston, Ill., and one of the study's co-authors. "It's not definitive, and there's a lot we still need to discover to help these people, but it's very compelling. It's a new discovery."
