L.D. Ablo: This still doesn't explain Manti Te'o.
Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: It's not about single big hits, it's about the constant tiny hits of your brain against your skull on almost every play, if you're a lineman. Repeated minor traumas add up.
FLMountainMan: Not really surprising. Soccer players show this same thing. I've played goalkeep in a rec league for the last four years. I'm 36, the rest of the team is in their twenties. I'm always chiding my defenders not to head long balls. It's just not worth it. I'd rather possibly give up a goal in a rec league than have them suffer brain damage. But 20 year old men don't worry about that sort of thing. It's something civilization has depended on for millenia.
Your Average Witty Fark User: Subby spelled "SEC" wrong.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: Yes, I can't believe this is news. During my two years playing HS football, I can think of dozens of times where I "got my bell rung," but never had a concussion (I would later find out what a "real" concussion was like).
ScouserDuck: Cal residents who can't get in then go to UC Tempe.
bronyaur1: We are looking at the beginning of the end of American football as it is currently known.\srs
