Hastings Out for year

There was no need whatsoever for either of them to try to play this year.  Makes me question whoever is making those decisions.

Dr. James Andrews makes these decisions. He's only the most respected sports injury physician in the world.

Yeah he is. I don't see it. That's why I really hope we go after Kelly Bryant with all haste. 

Apparently the coach who doesn't know how to evaluate QB talent too well and never really makes his QBs better when they leave than when they got here thinks he is the most polished QB on the roster not named Stidham. Also apparently they expect him to waltz in and start as a true freshman. 

Regardless the forum will get a lot of posts out of this topic when the web competition goes all the way into the 5th game next year lol.

A "fast" recovery would be 9 months. Clearing him in 6 was idiotic. 

This is certainly the first time I've ever seen the world's premier sports doctor called idiotic. KUDOS, not everyone can achieve such greatness in just two posts.

I agree with your thoughts about James Andrews.  He was my ortho when I had a baseball injury in college.  He’s the very best in the business.

Which leads me to believe he left the decision up to Gus and Hastings.  And we all know great Gus’s decision-making is with regards to personnel, so...

That's not how it works. When Dr. Andrews says a player is cleared, the coaches are free to play him as they see fit. If Dr. Andrews doesn't clear the player, he can't play, period. Medical decisions are not left up to coaches.

LOL, you think Dr Andrews sees every one of our players. He doesn't even personally see a third of the professional players who come through his clinic

What I KNOW is that the coaches cannot use a player until Dr. Andrews or his staff clears that player. It's not up to the coaches to decide medical issues, Dr. Andrews and his staff do that. If they clear a guy, he's medically ready to go full speed. If they don't clear him the guy can't participate. End of story.

 

PS: Yes, Dr. Andrews sees all of Auburn's difficult cases. AU goes back to the very beginning with him, he got his start with AU athletes. We get priority with Dr. Andrews. You don't see him on the sidelines of NFL games, but he's on the sidelines of Auburn games. Does that tell you something?

That isn't entirely true either. It isn't always  black and white. Only thing that is true with would be concussions. Sometimes players face decisions like you can have surgery now or try and play through the season. In instances like that the staff tells the player the pros and cons of each and it is up to the player and his family. I had a player recently (we also use Andrews) who had an injury to his hand. There was a small risk that it could be further injured and the doctor actually said he wouldn't risk it because it could cause long-term arthritis at an early age, but the player didn't want to miss his senior year and his family decided to let him play.

Apparently, it was the wrong decision for Hastings.  It's ok though.  Even the best in the world make a mistake sometimes.

Unless you have access to the detailed medical records, you have no idea if a mistake was made or not. It very well could be that had Hastings never been injured, he'd have been injured on this occasion.

That isn't done with potentially dangerous knee injuries. You're trying to compare apples to oranges.

Sure it was probably just coincidence.  The 6 month early return from the torn ACL probably had nothing to do with it.:yes:

LOL, keep doubling down on things you have no idea about and telling us that you "KNOW."

Mikey, you're my new BFF. I ran out of Loves for your posts.

Other dudes and dudettes: you really don't know what you're talking about here. 

You may not can say, but was it a specific incident in a game that caused the setback?

To my knowledge it wasn't any one play, but he was pretty sore after a practice.

This is the state of the forum at the moment.  Some posters are now going after one of the most respected physicians in the world.  That just boggles my mind.

2 ACL surgeries? That really sucks. Hopefully he heals and gets the strength training he needs. Same with Stove. No need to rush back

I heard this time they're wrapping the new ligament with crocadlian tissue and injecting jellyfish stem cells in the area and he could be back within 3 months.

I feel odd agreeing with Mikey lately considering my overall opinion of Gussypants :D
