    Regarding Graham, I've never heard of bone spurs in the hip, but it sounds painful and not like something that just goes away. How do you treat bone spurs?

    Don't know about the hip but both my ex-wife and daughter had to have surgery on their feet for bone spurs. They are very painful.

    I just read Franz's article, that states that Dillon has bone spurs in BOTH hips, so I guess it must be a hereditary thing. Says they're treating him with anti-inflammatory drugs and rest.

    So, are these spurs calcium growths or something? I once hurt my wrist in a pickup basketball game. It hurt quite a bit for a few days, and then a little bump appeared. The pain eventually went away, but the bump is still there, ten years later. I don't know if that qualifies as a "spur".

    Actually, that is a very good suggestions.

    I used to have bone spurs that were extremely painful, and I simply kept doing what I usually did and then, in a while, they were gone.

    Western Medicine likes to cut and chop, however, there is not much to cut or chop with bone spurs. Perhaps there is some sort of laser surgery.

    BD said after the game that Graham is going to take the medical redshirt, and will have surgery shortly to repair the bone spurs.

    Probably the best approach. I wish Dillon a speedy recovery.

    Bone spurs in the feet is reactive bone formation in a tendon (Achilles), and plantar fascia, from tugging of those structures on the bone. Spurs in joints (hip, knee) is a different animal. Bone forms as a reaction to deficient cartilage and degenerative change. It is two different disease processes, and they are treated differently.

    If you have spurs in the hip, it means that you have cartilage issues (unless is around the hip, which could be bone formation at tendon attachments like the foot). So we don't know exactly were, but if I had to pick I rather have spurs around my joints than in my joints. Cartilage problems are more problematic. Microfracture surgery isn't that great yet, and once you lose cartilage, you will have issues with other joint structures for the rest of your life.

    With Hill out, I suspect that Carter will gut out 5-10 minutes per game until Wilbekin returns, and then opt to take a medical redshirt himself

    Devon Walker's improvement and continued progression is more important than ever now.

    Based on info fed to me from some pretty good sources, he has been diagnosed with Femoral Acetabular Impingement or FAI (Pincer) on both hips. Hear it's pretty painful. I looked it up, guess they'll scope him once all the tests are in. Hear he's had it for awhile, tried to play thru it, but finally got the best of him, plus the ankle roll just prior to the start of the season.
    Carter will take a medical RS as well based on all the reports . Hopefully Scottie & Tre make it back for the Jacksonville game & the tough 4 game out of conference stretch which starts with FSU. Then C. Walker returns to play in Jan. sometime. The team should be ok, just a tough start to the season with all the distractions. None better than Billy to weather the storm.

    If there is a silver lining amongst all of this it is the experience at various positions along with the added playing times some of the guys are getting.

    All this continuing bad luck makes you ever more grateful for the development of Jacob Kurtz.

    Yep, the kid needs a scholarship! I sat next to his mom down in sunrise when he made his first appearance in a gator basketball uniform. She was thrilled, to say the least. He didn't played all that game but he has gradually earned himself a spot
