    Unfortunate break for the Utes and for Porter. Sounds a lot like P.Rich's injury where it didn't seem bad initially.

    RS Sophomore that was slated as a starter for this season. Looks like they're going to be sliding a Safety over to fill his role, so they may not be too happy with the team depth at CB.

    Was wondering the same thing. Forman said that Keeney hurt his MCL, and while he can't prove it, he said that he would have had a torn ACL if not for the workouts they do or something like that.

    Jabari Ruffin, starting OLB at USC, also out for the season. Apparently they're looking at rolling Su'a Cravens up from safety to play LB.

    Looking at where teams on the schedule seem to be thin, the Buffs absolutely have to be able to run the ball well this year.

    Remember CU's saga with shoulder injuries under Doc Kreis, because of faulty training techniques?

    This is where Forman grabs his kudos = fewer injuries due to out-of-the-box thinking for a sports performance coach.

    Reading about his philosphies (and those of his mentor at Stanford) three things stand out:body/ muscular symmetry, flexibilty and understanding the need for rest in both training and rehab.

    "Old school" is pump as much weight as you can, for as many reps as possible to build up the strengtht and bulk of obvious muscles---biceps, pecs, abs, quads and calf muscles. Then when you get hurt, push around wheelbarrows full of sand for a time, until the pain goes away long enough to re-join practice.

    But Forman wants not only increased strength, but symmetry ,e.g. working those muscles in opposition to the primary ones listed, so as to gain symmetry and thus stability from overall body strength. That means working muscles often ignored and forcing a kid away from favorite exercises at which he might excel (bench and curl, to more difficult exercises, which are harder to do well, mostly because they work muscles not adequately developed before or require precise and accurate form in performing reps. Rehab consists of identifying the imbalance or assymetry causing the problem and correcting that issue over enough time to allow the body to stabilize the injured part, usually a joint; while doing other exercises to keep the rest of the body in shape. Also emphasized is flexibilty from stretching and certain other exercises.

    Buffs seem to avoid torn arm and shoulder muscles and hamstring injuries, many of which arise from being "wound too tight". KNOCK ON WOOD!
