Did you know that Will Muschamp is not only the head coach of the Florida Gators, but is also an educator of the human body? True story. His lessons are centered around woodpeckers and how they relate to the our anatomy.
Here’s your take home from today’s lesson:
Every situation when you’re dealing with the human body’s different. Every person is different.
Yesterday, we had Mickey Collins in, who’s a concussion expert, was talking to us about when you deal with concussions and when you come back from concussions. And he talked about a coach he once deal with that made the comment that, this player, you could take a shovel and hit him in the back of the head and nothing ever would happen, and this player could bump into a wall, and he’s gonna have a concussion. And Mickey simply said, ‘that’s right.’
Everyone is different. And everyone handles it different.
A woodpecker’s never gonna have a concussion. I bet you didn’t know that. That’s a true story. Isn’t it? He said it. They got an extra bone in their neck. They have an extra bone in their neck, and they never can have a concussion. You learn something new every day, and you just learned something new.
So, my point being, everyone’s different. I know one thing: he’s really excited to practice.
Thank you Thomas Goldkamp (247Sports) for bringing us this press conference gold.
