Lou Rosselli needs a Candy Loving to attract some decent recruits.

Did I ever tell you I interviewed with her for a job once?

She made a hell of an impression on the interviewer.

Sanders signed both contracts after he left school.  As far as I can tell, Murray set the standard.  There have been but a handful of crossovers. 

Roscoe Crosby had a $1.75 million signing bonus from the Kansas City Royals while a Clemson wide receiver in the early 2000s.

Kyle Parker was Clemson's quarterback after he got a $1.4 million signing bonus from the Colorado Rockies in 2010.

Murray was blessed with a $4.6 mil signing bonus and 1 year to play for the Sooners.

Another Sooner record!

I'm getting menstrual cramps reading all this data about head injuries.

At least now you know.

Ever watch a youth football game?  22 marshmellows having fun.  Absolutely zero risk of injury.

Here's some education.....

A report in the June 2016 issue of the Journal of Neurotrauma found that the likelihood of developing cognitive and emotional problems is linked to a football player’s overall exposure to contact and not just to his diagnosed concussions. In other words, every little hit adds up, which explains why NFL veterans who started playing before the age of 12 are more likely to have cognitive problems than those who picked up the game later. These days, many players start earlier — and the truly dedicated scrimmage all year long.

For years many doctors believed that children were less likely than adults to suffer serious head injuries in football, for the simple reason that they weigh less and run more slowly than adults do. Now it’s well understood that until about age 14, a kid’s head is much larger than an adult’s compared with his body, yet the neck is weaker, which means the head bounces around more in response to collisions. Researchers at Virginia Tech found that seven-year-old football players experienced head blows comparable in force to the impacts suffered by college players.

To make matters worse, the nerve fibers in children’s brains are not yet coated with the protective sheathing known as myelin. As a result, “it’s easier to tear apart neurons and their connections in children at lower impact,” says Dr. Robert Cantu, the author of Concussions and Our Kids and a leading researcher of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), the brain-wasting disease that has been diagnosed in dozens of deceased football players. The threat to emerging neural connections is particularly problematic at Brogan’s age. “If you injure your brain during that time,” Cantu says, “there is a high likelihood that you will not reach your maximal genetic endowment intellectually, and you’ll perhaps not have the same personality with regard to depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.”

That's because it's Reggie Bush that holds that title with a confirmed $300,000 personal take.

I said... "since" Cam.

Al joking aside... Is Murray the highest paid college football player of all time? Who else could it be?

I would rather subject my son to possible brain damage playing youth football than him becoming a pussy.

So ALL kids who didnt play youth football are pussies?

The taste?

Word.  If you have to put cheese sauce on to eat them, they aren't very good anyway.  Like putting A1 on a fine steak. 

Oh no no no.... Sprinkle them with olive oil (and very light dusting of parmesan, if you desire) then put them on the grill until just the edges blacken, then salten to taste.

No I get it.  Kind of like knee injuries start from the moment a child walks and the cumulative effects of gravity resulting in skeletal breakdowns.  The solution is for all of us to remain inert.

We all have to walk buck... We dont HAVE to subject our brains to repeated trauma

The risk of CTE in high school and younger is infinitesimal.  It's an absolute joke that parents are scared that their little boys will be injured.

The brains of young boys and girls are more vulnerable.
