Default Am I the only one that worries

About all these guys playing basketball. It sure has me worred about injuries.

I understand letting the guys be college kids and do what college kids do but I also know how competitve these guys are.

After hearing about that one DT getting injured playing, I started to think about it. But then I remembered my time playing dodgeball with rendrick taylor and jacoby ford and they didn't get hurt so I'm cool. Can't keep these kids in a bubble forever

A similar issue came up several years ago about riding mopeds. What was the final on that? Are players allowed to ride mopeds around campus?

What I was told was other than when they playing each other, the defense is a little less intense. No one wants to be "the guy" that took out Trever or any of the other players.

Yes, it concerns me, but I also could see that being more restrictive could harm the culture Dabo has created. Sometimes you just have to let them make choices for themselves. I'm quite sure they warn them to be careful although it might fall on deaf ears.

That's the first thing I thought of. But how you gonna make em stop? You can't really.

don't take the fun out of being in college. If they were to get hurt then oh well, but don't ruin the experience for them along the way. I'd rather them be hurt and smiling and having fun than feeling like playing clemson football was a job.

I understand why Dabo lets them play and gives them some freedom to have fun, but it worries me as well. Those guys are so competitive, it doesn't take much to get hurt.
