    OTL: A&M, others may have broken medical rules

    Not sure I agree with the premise of complete independence, as the Head Football trainer is effectively the football coach for the 5 months of year the football coach can’t have contact with the team. It is important to have someone that understands your system and that you trust in that role. Urban hired Mariotti at UF and brought him to Ohio State for that reason. I understand that team physicians should have medical independence, but unsure with regard to the Head Trainer role.

    I suppose most people in Florida will not see this as an unusual situation, considering any time you have a workplace injury, you are sent to the company's chosen physician rather than your own.

    Damn long article, but that jacket fits dumbo like a potato sack, certainly he can buy a better fitting suit off the rack or heaven forbid, a tailor.

    I was under the impression that Mariotti was the Strength coach not the head medical trainer. Was that incorrect?

    Thanks. I may be misinformed as to roles. I thought the S&C coach in football was the football athletic trainer and the off-season coach coordinating efforts when the head coach can’t have contact. I thought this is who the article was speaking of when they discussed the coach bringing their own guy with them from other programs. I did not think this person was a Medicsl doctor, but you would likely know better than me.

    Shocker that Franklin and and Jimbo’s names came up in conjunction with shady behavior.
    I like A&M, but I hope they have to eat that contract like an episode of fear factor where someone is forced is forced to eat cockroaches.

    If Jimbo gets sanctioned, I’ll feel about the same way I did when OJ was convicted for armed robbery, kidnapping et al. Very weak reason to indict a normal person under normal circumstances. But the circumstances aren’t normal when the accused already got away with so much worse at an earlier time.
