"The reason I brought up the Cal player is this: We all have sickle cell players. "

See the Sports Illustrated article:
The reason I brought up the Cal player is this: We all have sickle cell players. To me, it's the most scary individual thing we face. There are no signs. There are no indicators. You test every one of your players when they come in. And there are players who come in that have no idea they have it. Then you've got to call the parents, sit the kid down and talk to them what it means -- what the possibilities of things happening are. It's a scary deal.

Those comments met with UC admin... outrage -and comments about who controls football- is all of that tactical, too? In light of other headlines on college athlete literacy, grad rates, stadium costs, and how race plays in...

A dream of a players association/union for college athletes floats around?

sickle cell,health disparities, college athletes
20+ million dollar college coach compensation packages
what would Pre-Med Ted have to say about it?
we will never get to know
can't the memorials be held first?
maybe -for now- just say - Rest In Peace.
