Exit Alex Malzone

No surprise but now official.  

Wish he had gotten a chance to play but I guess the coaches did not see what he had displayed in HS.

No reason to think otherwise, even if Malzone was staying.

Good for him to have a UMich degree. Hope he is able to enjoy playing at a school with a good Master's program in whatever it is that he wants to do.

If he is able to finish his Master's degree in 2 years, he will have a graduate degree fully paid for by football. That's fantastic for the kid!

 I really wish things had gone differently for O'Korn, and that he hadn't targeted Tacopants as receiver so often. But it would be great to see him do well in a bowl game, and be able to play a set or two of downs.

Really love what I heard from the Carr family, and also his interaction with other kids who are hospitalized.

Yuck. He might be worried about getting passed (ok, he's already been passed and it is in fact getting late early for him) but he still has a lot to offer and I'd hate to lose him, flaws or otherwise.

Tough with all of the talent we have below him, though. DPJ was the #1 guy by the end of the season and Black was better than both of them before Black got hurt. I guess I sort of wondered if this would happen with Crawford or McDoom but hearing "on the fence" is still jarring.

Peters could have played in the osu game IMO. I really hope he begged to play and he is that type of competitor. I have no medical knowledge other than he walked into and out of the hospital.

It is way over the top nowadays with concussion protocol, but it sounds like he had no ill affects from the hit.

I have had several concussions in my life and never had a helmet on. Of course I have been diagnosed with some psycho issues, but that comes from my work background and the violence.

I am sure Peters can take a lot more than that one hit. I do hope he gets better blocking or a sixth sense like I have developed from always looking over your shoulder to make sure no one is behind you.

Putting all the crap aside, i look forward to him having a great game against the cocks.

Considering you only saw him get carted off.   There is no way you could possible know that.  I had a concussion from water skiing.  I seemed fine afterwards, drove home that afternoon, no obvious lingering affects.  But I couldn't go out and play hockey for months afterwards without throwing up and migraines just by getting on the ice.   After that, stress tests on a tread mill that would basically do the same thing.   

 

There seems to be an implication that one hit couldn't be dramatic to somebody, or that if you can walk you are ok.  Additionally, you seem to imply that if it is one hit it is somehow related "how tough" somebody is.   This thinking is a couple decades out of date.

After my Yooper accent faded and "yous guys" no longer occupied a slot in my everyday vernacular, I learned to say "all y'all" when I moved down south.   I'm one of very few people who can naturally toss out a "yous guys" and "all y'all" in consecutive sentences if I'm in the proper mood.
