    That's too bad... It's crazy how fast all of that happened, he started feeling sick yesterday and went to the hospital at 5:30 pm, and 6 hours later he died.

    That's unfortunate. Don't share cups at parties this weekend.

    That's what I was wondering. I didn't know Bacterial Meningitis was so fast.. If I was a guessing man, I'd say he probably felt sick a couple days prior but didn't think anything of it, and when it got "really" bad he went to the hospital after it was too late.

    Most likely. It's not like you'd go to the hospital at the first sign of feeling sick. Still crazy fast though.

    That really sucks. I knew that guy. He was in my major for a couple years and we worked on steel bridge team together. He was an awesome guy and I remember tailgating with him even just last fall. Tragic.

    According to the CDC CDC - Meningitis: Questions and Answers symptoms can develop over 1-2 days, or within a few hours.

    Why settle for a surgical mask when you could live in a bubble?

    I know some peopel are having a little fun with this, but it really does suck. He was a great guy. That being said, it is scary to think of how quick that stuff can kill you.

    His friends at ISU are taking it pretty hard as to be expected. I heard he even had the preventative shot for it. Yikes.
