    Blue, you must remember that Gofer is a Minny fan. J Rob hasnt been interviewed since he made the olympic team and when he was asked about how he felt he replied "No comment."

    Seriously though, you are right Blue and coaches understandably keep stuff under wraps.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I never ask directly if they are injured -just when I might expect to see them back in the line up-Some are very forthcoming and some are not -some are downright cryptic -saying ''we cannot give out info but we recommend you keep him '' or words to that affect.
    Hinkle was so nice he sent me a Purdue Tshirt and has e-mailed me several more times -good guy and has converted me from the hoosiers -which was not hard .

    Actually, HIPAA is the reason for so little communication on injuries. It's one reason why you hear so little on the nature of football injuries during a broadcast. Unless the school has a release in writing that allows the coach to comment, a word is a violation. Some schools get the release included in the overall Acknowledgment of Risk athletes are asked to sign. PS, it ain't a parent thing, 99% are old enough to not need a parent co-sign.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    In clarification, I also do NOT ask about an injury, I do ask for a return date however.

    No, I know parents have no legal right, but they're still a factor, regardless of the kid's age. Does it help to piss parents off? Nope. Notice I didn't say that I would sue if I were a parent. I said I wouldn't be happy about it.

    As a former athletic trainer I will say that all athletes sign an authorization of release to allow the athletic trainers access to patients/athletes information. This is done more so to help with recovery/rehab and possible prevention if the condition is pre-existing. At my university that only covered releasing information to us. An athletes medical information never went beyond us.

    Other schools might include some sort of media release, but they would have to get permission from the athlete. And even with the legal release all persons involved especially the trainer would still be bound by ethical decisions. All decisions would be made by a team including coach, athlete, parents, team physician, athletic trainer, athletic director, etc.

    That release is to allow access to personal medical information outside the a participation injury. Typically, they look for allergies and pre-existing conditions that could affect treatment.

    Back in my day, we had a QB / Safety that was recruited by Iowa. Nice four /five year ride. For registration he had to submit a medical profile which was also used prior to the annual physical. Turns out the kid was borne with one kidney. The doc flagged him and Iowa had to yank his ride because he was not medically qualified to participate. He started 4 years for our HS at QB. The school never new he one kidney. They never asked, his parents never told. One wicked sack, helmet to the side, he would have been dead. So much for the thoroughness of HS physicals. The questionnaire never posed a question that would have raised a positive response from the kid.

    Wait, there are actually people on this site who email coaches asking whether they should drop a kid from their fantasy lineup?
