Yeah, I'm guilty of getting mad about Dylan being too hurt to start the game we lost at KU but not hurt enough to keep him from almost mounting a comeback. Of course, I wasn't fully aware that our coaching staff has the same attitude toward injury that the staff on Varsity Blues had at that time, but that doesn't fully excuse me.

Of course he's masking the extent of his injuries, this program and this sport requires him to, that's the point slim.  Do you think Dalton Risner feels great playing on two sprained ankles? Pringle must have injured one of his eyes or something, he's playing.

You cannot place one tiny bit of blame on a player trying to play through pain. By the way, the fans require players to do it too.
so you want ertz to play on a torn meniscus am i gathering that right? what happened to #family?

I thought my point was clear, I'll state it again. First of all, I've said more than once that if he's but he shouldn't be playing. Secondly, I wish football culture allowed him to be hurt and to heal properly without being forced to play while injured.

At what point are we going to listen to the several coach/trainer complaints this staff has had?

Huh? Like the training/medical staff sucks?


Also, I have had a ton meniscus and did nothing and it just got better. But I'm not playing D1 football. I just wanted to share that little anecdote about me. :Rusty:

No, that they, in conjunction with the coaches are playing players who may not be comfortable being on the field. There were whispers of this with Alex Barnes last season and full blown roars with Corey Sutton this past summer. There have been other things that we've seen; Collin Klein with his concussion against OSU and Grant Gregory playing most of the season with a torn rotator cuff.

Again, I think these things are prevalent and expected in the sport. I don't think our staffs are worse than anyone else, just not any better either.

Agree MIR. We just notice it with QBs because of the demands with our run game. I know a former Big 12 level baseball coach who calls football at the D1 level a "surgical sport".

He should, but we will probably go with the same game plan in the 2nd half knowing this staff.
