    By no means am I an expert in this field. To give you some context, I am a large, beastly man who hasn't experienced many injuries in his life. My most traumatic injury was a hang nail, and I haven't suffered from any illnesses beyond a runny nose since I was 7 months old. Many of my brothers from college won't bring their "lady friends" around me simply due to my "girth", and superior immune system. Sad, but true.

    But anyways, I must to ask, what the HELL is going on with these injuries? At what point does this stop being just a mere coincidence, and become a symptom of a larger problem in regards to our strength and training program? At this rate, we will be lucky to field a starting 5 come February!

    Where is the break down? Are we over-training guys? Are we not getting proper nutrition? Do we lack "flexibility" in our strength training? Just spit balling here!

    Whether it's guys taking a full calendar year to come back from ACL's or Aaron Thompson's mysterious wrist and knee injuries taking MONTHS to heal - I've got questions!

    What’s your favorite Bruce Springsteen song? Question for everyone.

    Thanks for asking, dawgs2014. Got to say my favorite from Bruce is Walk Like A Man (1987), which we are currently struggling to do.

    I'm more than willing to step in if I have to and give the boys some pointers.

    Barry, if you're reading this, I know we're on a "hiring freeze", but I'll come train the boys for 20 bucks a session. The ball is in your court.

    This is not a Bruce song, please stay on topic or take your inquiries to ask Jeeves dot com.

    No, I do not think we are facing issues with our strength and conditioning program. Ralf Rief and his team, and our strength coach are top notch.

    Injuries in sports is and has become a sad realization. In BU's situation it is an aberration.

    “I had a friend who was a big baseball player/
    Back in high schoooool...”

    Maybe Bruce meant big as in stature of the friend and not “extent to which he played the game”. What about that?

    I always have to laugh at Springsteen using the term “speedball” instead of fastball. Almost as confusing as Mellencamp’s use of the phrase, “sucking on chili dogs, outside the Tasty Freeze.”

    Similarly, are we sure John Denver is talking about West Virginia rather than the western region of the state of Virginia?

    Don’t you EVER ****ing question John Denver! It doesn’t matter - whichever way he meant it, he was RIGHT!

    I was hooking up with this girl a while back who knew NOTHING about sports. To her, every sport has “the sportsball”.

    She was hot, so it’s why we were hooking up but never dated haha.

    The song was actually written about rural Maryland, but West Virginia worked better. The writer, who was from Massachusetts, considered using that instead. Can you imagine?

    We’re actually the same person. Two different accounts. Two different perspectives.
