(Deadspin)   SDSU running back Adam Muema, who left the combine because God told him to, then went missing, was hanging out in an airport without eating for 3 days for the same reason. Careful, NFL teams, don't accidentally draft him twice in your excitement   (deadspin.com) divider line 31

Methinks he needs some professional help.

right about the age for schizophrenia to emerge.

Going before Sam?

I fully expect the Seahawks to bring him in as an undrafted free agent. They have no problem trying guys out to see if they can play. Who knows, he might be good enough to hang around as a #3 back.

So, if someone says God talks to them and tells them to do what they wanted to do anyway, everyone thinks that's normal. If God says to do something unusual but completely harmless (leave a job fair, sit around an airport), everyone thinks they're crazy.

Remember folks...TEBOW was a FIRST ROUND PICK.

So he said he was on a mission from God, disappeared for 3 days, then resurrected his location awareness?

I have a feeling him, Sam, Incognito...and Tebow will all end up being on my Raiders this season.  :(

Yeah. Reminds me of the lady who abandoned her toddler on the side of the road and committed suicide to go meet Jesus.

On the upside, it keeps the whargarble about the gay guy to a minimum.

Is that right? Would leaving the structured environment of scholastic athletics and being thrust into the world exacerbate that?

Does Incognito need a roommate?

Or roommates, as  the case may be?

No, no, God told him to. He's not crazy. Ordain him! We have pastor material over here!

Oh dear, psychotic break. About the right age for it - get him some care before the draft, please!

Yay...just when my SDSU Aztecs start pulling in better quality recruits and make a bunch of consecutive bowl games, a name-player from the program has to go and start acting bonkers.  This is not going to help matters.

Forget that Marshall Faulk went to SDSU...this is the shiat that'll be sticking in young recruits' heads.  Yay.

Question: do running backs need to be sane or have any connection to reality?

There's not much humor in mental disease peeking out on a young man with decent potential in life.

Maybe he's just really religious.

Yeah because the voices in his head telling him to do random things are not god. They are signs of an upcoming psychotic episode, which generally are best to be avoided.

This kid needs to get on meds sooner rather then later, but most people are not lucky enough or rational enough to take them before they have a complete break from reality.  There are still a lot of good reasons why he can still be able to be a successful football player. I hope everything turns out ok for the kid.

Yes, it is common for it to come out when moving to a new area, starting a new job. Generally certain stresses just exacerbates the situation like many other mental illnesses. Early 20's is about average for men to show signs of schizophrenia which this seems very likely the case.

Yeah.  I had a roommate who went from a little eccentric to completely obviously off her meds psychotic over a few months.

I have nothing but sympathy for someone going through something like that.

I managed group homes for psychotic adults for a few years. This is certainly similar to a lot of the histories I used to read about the people I dealt with back then. Like others have said, right around 20ish is the prime time for the break to occur, and it almost always involves some sort of religious, governmental, or space alien paranoia / delusions. Periods of stress will exacerbate (or in this case, possibly be the tipping point for) psychosis.  The themes all seem to be there: God speaking to him, lack of personal hygiene and care, and the numerology.

I'm really saddened to see this happening to someone with such promise. I saw so many cases like this in my previous career. It's really tragic.

On the other hand, it's a "30 By 30" movie to be made.

Given the meat grinder of a position that RB is these days, that connection will be gone when he's older anyway.

That, plus the extreme stress of the extended job interview process couldn't have helped.
