Are we allowed to proactively give our players eye exams?

I assume there this is something that is provided via insurance through the university. Just reading how Stonum couldn't see deep balls, has an astigmatism (!). Thanks for the note three years later. RoundTree spent a year needing glasses before he finally got them. This seems like one of those basic things we should test with all of our players when they show up as freshmen. Is there a rule against doing something like this?

Typically the Sports Science videos are pretty cool, but not worthy of an MGoBlog post, in my opinion. This one is different. I think this is absolutely sweet, and it showcases a little bit of Larry Fitzgerald's raw skill.

P.S. I tried to embed the video, but wasn't able. I clicked the "Share" button, then copy/pasted the code from the "Embed" window, but when I previewed it here, it only showed the text. Any ideas? 

Edit: Here's the embed. Thanks Dudeness!

I came across this funny article this morning. It is the significant events from the SEC in the last decade seen through facebook. And since we are in the dog days before the start of the season and posting the same things over and over I thought it would be a nice change of pace. Alright time for links.

So I figure this is the place where people would appreciate this quick story...

Last night at football practice the coach had asked all the 10 yr old boys sitting around him what it takes to get people to "join the team" and "want to play together."  My boy quickly pipes in, "well coach, I know that Coach Rich Rod from Michigan starts by making X amount of phone calls a week and then sends out the assistant coaches to make in home visits.  Now sir,  anyone with a clue knows they start with their pipeline states first."

I sat off to the side wondering where I could find a tissue.  So excited about bringing him to his first gme at the Big House in a few weeks.
