    Dude had a big tumor in his head and couldn't put a helmet on. Why would we trade draft picks for him?

    By the accounts I have seen he has recovered. Bigger concern to me is how he has recovered emotionally and does he have the same desire for the game. Those I have known that have recovered from life threatening conditions have changed and have a different perspective. Just a thought.

    Actually the college game is pretty restricted as to how long teams can practice, how many two-a-day practices can be held and how much contact teams are allowed.  Coaches are only allowed 20 hours per week for on field practice and classroom coaching.  You also don’t have pre-season games in college so all of the contact during camp is very much controlled.  Guys get hurt in college too, it’s just that unless you are following a team closely you don’t really hear about the injuries like you do in the NFL.  You also have much larger rosters in college so first team defense is rarely beating up on first team offense and vice versa.  Also, the guys are younger in college 18-22 years old, so naturally there will be less soft tissue injuries with those age groups as opposed to guys in their late 20’s and 30’s in the NFL.  

    Practices and  contact have been limited in just about all sports. Seem to recall an article I read once that describes the training staff as critical to college programs due to the fact they had the most exposure too players in the off season. Which I thought implied training programs were not as restive in college as it is in the pros. If that is the case it could be a factor. As you stated though the attention paid to these types of injuries is not as focused on by the general fan in college vs pros. Most likely due to fantasy football most fans now focus on the whole league rather than just one team.

    Seems like a lot of hamstring injuries. That gives me pause.  Hamstring injuries have a way of lingering. 

    Don’t have any real data, but just seems that since the last CBA limiting both training and practice time muscle injuries like Hamstring, Calf etc are up. Getting players into football shape is more difficult for training staffs. Maybe someone that follows the college Game closely can compare better. College game is not as restricted as Professionals.

    People getting a little too pumped up about pre-season

    Understand its pre-season. What has me pumped is the interaction of the coaching staff including Gase with the players. Not just in practice but during the game. Coaching should never end on the practice field.
