    Adam Carper

    If I recall, Carper tore his acl, mcl, and meniscus. They thought at the time it would probably be a career ender, and it was. He ended up helping coach LBs until he graduated this year.

    This. He could have come back and tried playing on it, but they told him it was high risk to happen again and he didn't want any of it.

    Re: Adam Carper

    yes terry did have a concussion and neck injury. I believe doctors told him that if he took another hard hit, that he might not wake up.

    don't remember what happened to adam carper really.

    I do recall a linebacker that got kicked off the team for testing possitive for drugs a few years back. anyone recall his name?

    Re: Adam Carper

    A relative of mine (2nd cousin) had something like this happen to him way back when. Not sure of the year. But he was a redshirting when we went to the peach bowl. He started the next year at linebacker as redshirt freshman, and tore up his knee in the middle of the season. he rehabed, then came back his sophomore and tore up the same knee again that same year.

    They wanted him to come back and play but he told them that he wanted to be able to walk when he graduated.

    It'd be kinda cool if anyone on here played with him or knows him. He goes by Joe or Joel Jensen.

    I might not be remembering correctly, but I believe that the story didn't end there. I thought that after Terry was told that ISU would not accept the risk of letting him continue to play, he ended up transferring to a smaller school and competing during his senior year.

    Matt Robertson. He kind of got a raw deal--they weren't illegal when he was taking them initially.

    Re: Adam Carper

    I don't think that was him. He played the year before, and was our only returning starting linebacker, but got kicked off the team.

    Re: Adam Carper

    It was Robertson. He had a good year and was looking solid but got kicked off for steroids.

    Re: Adam Carper

    Carper destroyed his entire knee... I saw him around campus a lot. I think he had multiple surgeries and it just wouldn't come back. Really unfortunate because he was going to be a very good player for us. He's a really nice guy too.

    I thougt it was a "nutritional supplement" - something illegal under NCAA guidelines, not-so-much 'roids. But I guess they'd qualify as a banned substance...
