- 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.

They already have Manziel (and with the RNC announcement yesterday) they stand a good chance of landing Sarah Palin as well.
It would be a Trifecta for the ages!

I dont recall Mitch ever being braced in clam shell post op in accordance with most fusion protocols.
I still believe it was a minimally invasive procedure with a good chance of return tournament time.
Just coming out dressed and running warm ups with the Team would be a huge boost for them and better yet mess with the psychology of the other team.

All this is not sitting well with the faithful in KY.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||I talked a little about this on another thread||
I am a physician and I have expertise in rehab of all sorts of back surgeries.
There is no reason for him not to have statrted some form of rehab after seeing him on sidelines.
IMHO, he is silently participating in some form of rehab now with the goal of returning during tournament time depending on the teams record, seeding, etc.
If we had completely turtled after his surgery I would say he wouldnt have risked coming back.
But with what we have accomplished he is more than eager to come back and be a part of this.
I say this b/c his post game comments did not rule out a return.
The folks at UM are some of the best in the business in this area (ie Jake Ryan's ACL) and will have him fit and ready, if the circumstances are correct.
Just my 2 cents.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||It is entirely my opinion||
based on the fact I am a physician with expertise in rehabing minimally invasive spine surgery patients.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||no one is talking about it but||
McGary will be back for either B10 tournament or the NCAA.
|28 weeks 6 days ago||I think he will be back||
by tournament time.
Mininmally invasive surgery meaning no bone graphs or caging and/or fitted external bracing, tells me there was probably a small lateral extrusion that didnt respond to steroids. Odds are there was radiculopathy without motor weakness.
Given his age and pre-op conditioning he should bounce back rather quickly.
Just my 2 cents

though I have the room.
I instead have a 10 yr old daughter that living here in the heart of Buckeye land had as the #1 item on her Christmas list......Michigan Basketball tickets.
You can't teach passion like that...its in your DNA.

Dealing with Buckeye fan daily just cauterizes the hatred.

|1 year 6 weeks ago||Las t week we rented a beach house...||
..in South Haven MI for 5 days of relaxation.
Coming back through Ann Arbor on I94 there was no way my 9 y/o daughter would let us not stop at "The Big House" and the renovated Chrysler Arena. (She is still ticked I couldnt score some basketball tickets last season).
Living ing Buckeye-land...its Tremendous she has stayed away from the dark side.

who the older gentleman is that Coach B hugs at the end of the game? He is always sitting in the seat right next to players and coaches.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Inconceivable|
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Where was McGary||
in the second half?
I dont remeber seeing him in the game after his steal and breakaway near the end of the first?
Cant fault his effort infirst half
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I think it will||
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!
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Good programs||
