    Blythe and MONO may affect him next year.

    I heard that Blythe had epstein barr virus (wich is mono). If this is true most people dont realize how bad this is. Iowas highly recruited Dan Doering contracted it LAST year before the season started and he still has not gotten back to full strength yet. (which is why he has not played yet)

    On another note Superstud cyclist Daminao Cunego from italy contracted the Mono virus (epstein barr) Right after his first tour de france and it took him Two seasons to get back to top form. For those of us who have had it it was probably not noticed for so long. But when you are a high profile athelte the edge can take months if not longer to get form back. I hope Blythe recovers fully. I was NOT a high profile athelete but In High School I ran a 56 quarter mile as a soph. I got mono right after the season. I never broke 60 seconds until my senior year (ran a 55 yay). In fact My junior season of football I just couldn't get the stamina to last a whole game without nearly dropping over from fatigue. Most people don't realize the residual effects from this illness take the edge off speed strength and stamina for a very long time.

    If you let it turn into pnemonia, it can linger for months...with todays care, I bet he's back for Mizzou.

    Re: Blythe and MONO may affect him next year.

    Yeah I read my post and it sounded alarmist. He likely will be fine. But I guarantee you it will definately affect his training for at least the next 3-4 months. Even people with "mild" EBV get wiped. Even if he feels fine there is no way he could play. Risking death from an abdominal blow just isn't worth it. Most people don't realize that EBV causes a fragile enlarged spleen which can rupture at even the slightest blow. Some girl in southern Iowa a few years ago died during a softball game from taking a pitch in the gut while playing against her doctors advice. Her spleen ruptured and she bled to death. YIKES!
