    "useless forms of communication.".....kinda like Maahvin's tweets.

    I won't disagree with that. In fact I would go as far as to say the tweets of ALL athletes are useless.

    A great article. I wish that more could do research on this topic. The young kid made a wise decision in not playing anymore. It's not worth the risk. This is serious business.

    hopefully their research on this is better than research being done in the AFAM department.

    Well UNC athletes can't get a concussion from banging their head on classroom desk. They don't go to class anyway.

    UNC's football team avoids concussions by avoiding physical contact with their opponents

    — Posted by patriotsrevenge

    Yeah, Gio Bernard did an excellent job of avoiding contact vs Moo U that's for sure!

  • 75Tarheel Feb 15, 9:11 a.m.

    EVERY middle school and high school that I know of has modeled their Concussion information to Administrators, A.D.s, Coaches, parents and players after seminars conducted by UNC's nation leading program. As Coaches we have to go through an initial training and refresher courses each year. We give this info to each student and parent(s) that tries out for any team or club that has the possibility of physical contact i.e. Cheerleaders, etc. It's simply changed the way athletic progams approach concussions or the possibility of one.

    GO HEELS!!
