    Why wasn't there some article about this after the USU player hit Taysom, helmet first, in the knee last year? But no one said anything about it. I guess it's the "curse of being a sports writer" and needing to find a story somewhere, anywhere, that makes headlines.

    That said, I am sorry to see Chuckie out for the season, just like any player that has a season-ending injury. It denies them their potential to showcase their skills.

    I remember a high school player that was a friend of my son that got hit from behind and required knee surgery. Of course the officials missed it because they were all 4 watching the ball carrier and not covering their part of the field as good mechanics require. The same visiting team did it again later in the game and once again, no foul was flagged. Such officials ought to not put on the stripes and be given a whistle. Players deserve good officiating. A lot of injuries just go with the territory, though, sadly.

    Old adage; be careful what you wish for.
    Who would ever want to be the target?
    Why not be the ammunition.

    The fame of being a Q distorts a persons reasoning skills.
    Kids in Little League, its feels better to hit than to get hit!

    Is whats sad is that it only takes a split second in life to erase a lifetime of work.

    Ha, I liked it because it made me laugh even though there is some truth to the QB curse!
