This is why the NCAA should use some of the insane amounts of money it makes to cover athletes medical expenses from sports related injuries. It's a shame.

On September 9, 2014, former football stand-out, Stanley Doughty, will undergo critical spinal surgery to help alleviate the pain and numbness he currently suffers as a result of a helmet to helmet collision he suffered while playing at the University of South Carolina several years ago.

I thought he was filing some kind of lawsuit...was it not successful?

This is why American football needs to do away with the helmet.

I believe it is still pending but the problem they are going to have is that he was diagnosed with the narrowing and still kept playing football in HS and into college.

This story was just on CNN a few minutes ago. Apparently the suit is still on, and they're claiming the University's staff misdiagnosed the injury.

Just saw the interview with him on CNN again this morning. This crap right here is why the NCAA should take more control over the schools with injuries.

The Gamecocks aren't even bad with over using most players. There are schools out there that win games based on one player and would play them with a broken leg if it meant a win.

A tad off topic, but wasn't Clowney's injury basically missed until he got to the NFL? I forget what it was.. something like a hernia?
