That is awful. Hope everything turns out okay for him.
Terrible news, but the right decision. Best of luck to him.
this really sucks kid was a good player.
Why was he still on the field? Holy crap.
The lawyers are gonna have a field day with colleges and the NFL some day.
I sure as shit hope so. Why the NCAA and NFL both do not require their players to wear mouth guards is so incredibly idiotic, that i honestly think the people running these associations are brain dead. I'm talking quality made custom fit mouth guards from dentists, not crappy boil and bites some of us received in high school.
^^^ Sorry the NCAA does require mouth guards.
Good luck to the young man. Osweiler is the future anyhow, all 6'8" of him, as OKCBuff can attest
It's a shame that he had to retire from football due to concussions.
good for him tho... at least he got out while he didnt ruin the rest of his life...
That's the truth! Oz is tall and has a strong arm and, once he got used to starting, improved drastically. (Note: I'm the coach at ASU in our AllBuffs NCAA Dynasty League.)
But seriously... that IS scary. Threet had a rough college career. Got to Michigan just in time for that whole situation to change and then goes to the Valley only to struggle there, get injured and see his backup become the hero of campus with a win over Arizona. Tough stuff. On the football side, I think ASU will be in good shape with Oz, so in the long run it isn't a big hit for the Devils other than depth. But on the personal side, this is absolutely heartbreaking and I hate to see it happen to any kid who tries his hardest to be a warrior on the gridiron. Prayers and good luck to him and his future.
Not going to fun for him dealing with dementia at 50 without NFL money.
