    Scary as ****. I think there was also a bad head on collision in the Arkansas game, not as bad as this one though.

    Walker was revived on the field and a tracheotomy was performed.
    ^^^This part was crazy to hear earlier today.

    Hopefully not as bad, but the Arkansas player was also taken off the field in an Ambulance. The player was responsive. But there is no word yet on what his injury is.

    I just hate seeing these kind of injuries. The bodies just go lifeless and rigid. Such a scary sight

    Best wishes to him, his family and Tulane

    Right, didn't look as bad I should have said, to my completely untrained eye it atleast looked like the Arkansas player moved his legs after the hit, which is hopefully a good sign.

    No offense, but hard to take you serious with Mr Bean staring at me like that.

    But yes it is sad and scary to see such a thing. Things like that remind you its just a game and very sad to see this.


    I'm not trying to be difficult, it comes naturally....

    Big props to the people that responded to him on the field for sure.

    Re: Tulane safety broken neck and collapsed lung

    I wonder if any thought was given, or if it's even an option in college football, to call a game for something like this. I mean watching a man very nearly die on the field and all, seems a little cold to cart him off and play on right away.

    They should have. This wasn't even a case where you could say that the integrity of the game demanded that a close game be finished, or some wild claim like that. It was 35-3. Game was over.

    Watch #18. It doesn't look that bad...until you see the slow-mo replay.

    Thoughts and prayers to him and his family.

    Sounds like a scholar athlete as well with his major, hope he can continue on with this.

    Walker is a senior majoring in cell and molecular biology. His brother, Raynard, told The Associated Press that their mother was watching the game on television when her son was injured.

    Yeah, coaches crying, and then having to go back to coaching a few minutes later, tough to ask them to do.
