    That`s what I`ll NEVER understand. Same thing with pick up b`ball. Guess it just shows that wisdom really does come with age!

    Love the Twilight/soccer comparison but also love the Twilight series. *hides under table*
    Hate Soccer. Everyday, everyway. Hate Soccer.

    I agree that DT maybe should have skipped his senior season on the soccer team in favor of his scholarship to Bama.

    I wonder if anyone at Bama suggested this to him.

    I guess what`s so frustrating with situations like this is that you`d think common sense would prevail. Then again, when I was 18 or so I`m sure I wasn`t overly endowed with that particular attribute either. The "Immortality syndrome of youth", I suppose. That`s why they do so well in fighter planes and assaulting beaches!

    You can't stop competitors from competing. He's more than likely one of their better players and would be put under significant pressure by teammates and friends to keep playing...

    I wonder how many of our players play on intramural teams, which makes FAR less sense to me than playing another HS sport.

    That's basically it. Most of upper echelon players like him are highly driven, Type A personalities that want to compete at everything. Lots of these guys play sports year around. They just go straight from football to basketball to baseball to track, etc.

    part of what I've liked about Tomlinson since he commited was his pure athleticism that he shows in having success in multiple sports. accidents happen when you play sports no reason to debate whether this kid should have wrapped himself in bubble wrap placed himself in cold storage until the fall. High school athletes play high school sports.

    hopefully he recovers quick and can compete in the fall.

    Does wisdom come with age, or progressively painful, stiff knees when you crawl out of bed each morning?

    Well, assuming for a moment that I have more wisdom now than at 18, for me it`s both !

    This kid is one of my favorite recruits. I can't remember the last heavyweight wrestling champion Bama got. Holdbrooks maybe?
