    I think this deserves it's own thread. Let's pray for a quick and full recovery for Shavon - basketball or no basketball.

    Understatement of the night...we need Shavon back...quickly.

     

    It sounds like it's up in the air whether or not he'll show up to watch Saturday's game, much less play in it.

    I know it's just been 3 days. And I know with concussions nowadays, you get put into the protocol, and from there it's a wait a see type thing. But it's still a little disappointing that they literally know nothing or at least aren't sharing. And it's super discouraging that the possibility of Shavon not returning at all has been brought up even though nobody truly knows. I'm sure Shavon has been thrown into that brain research-athletics collaboration that UNL has going on. I don't know specifics but it's something about being able to track eye movement while monitoring brain activity. Obviously, everyone wants the very best for Shavon, but it would be my hope that the research doesn't get in the way of him returning in a safe and healthy manner and according to current timeframes for what's currently understood about concussions. In other words, I don't think it would, but hopefully the research doesn't delay his return.

    Why? Why put his health at risk on a lost season? That is absurd.

    That is absurd. I'm not suggesting putting his health at risk at all. He needs to come back when he is fully healed. Not that I believe it would happen, but I was just saying that hopefully his return would be dictated by current concussion protocol (it sounds like it is) and not some lengthened experimental protocol based on the cutting edge research that is happening at UNL. I'm sure Shavon wants to get back out there if he can, as soon as he is safely cleared to do so.

    I am sorry but if you think current protocol is enough you haven't done enough research. If shavon was my son he wouldn't suit up the rest of the season.

    Ok let's cancel sports altogether. Way too much risk involved. I don't know anything about the current protocol other than that it's what they are currently using. I'm sure it's the NFL protocol or something very similar. More is understood now about concussions than ever before but everything feels like just the tip of the iceberg. When is the brain healed? When is it okay to return to activity? How many concussions are too many? It's certainly a scary topic. I'm sure the neurologists will weigh in and they are way more smarter than me. Get well soon Shavon.

    Shavon will be ready when he's ready...it's really no more complex than that.

    First step is whether he can be cleared to even attend the Penn State game and/or attend class.

    Fifty years from now this whole discussion will seem as archaic as debating the merits of using leather helmets for football. Meanwhile we should take Shavon out of our equation, try to squeak out 3 more wins and become a team no one is eager to play in the Big10 tourney.

    Yep hyperbolic false dichotomy, that's exactly what we are advocating.

    Shavon has butt his heart and soul into Nebrasketball and he found feel no pressure to come back after a concussion. Take a step back.

    Take a step back from what? This is me not taking a step back because I have not once suggested that he needs to rush back or that he should come back before its time. All I've done is to ask questions about the process. Why would Shavon feel any pressure to get back? In fact, if he did feel pressure to get back, it wouldn't matter one lick. No doctor is going to clear him to get back before it's safe for him to do so.

    Could see him in noise canceling head phones if he makes it to the game Saturday.  We use them here at school for some of our kids that have trouble with noise at assemblies.

    I pray that's the case. But again concussions are serious business and there is no reason to rush or want shields to suit up again. Kids will always say they are ready to play.

    That's true and they may have to lock Shields up. For as much as he has given to the program there's no doubting that he wants to get out there and play-he doesn't want to go out this way-throw away year or not. Yes, he has his future to consider but as far as his Nebraska career goes, this is it for him. I'm sure everyone involved will make the correct/safe calls.
