The part that puzzles me is throwing up blood. IDK about you but most medical professionals will tell you to get it checked out at the hospital if you are throwing up blood. Either there was some really, really poor management by the medical staff and whoever knew or they didn't know it had progressed that far for whatever reason. Without the esophagus injury/throwing up blood, while its unpleasant, I think the rest of the story falls within the current realm of college athletics (and football especially) and there are probably stories from all sorts of programs all over the country.From what I've read so far, it all seems like standard college sports stuff. The only thing that made me raise my eyebrows was the possible mishandling of a player who had physical and mental health issues. The question is how much did the coaches really know about that situation and is it being represented fairly. The part about a player being run out of the program? Welcome to the Big Ten. We all know that goes on every single year to make the scholarship numbers work. How delicately each of those situations is handled could be up for question I guess.
I know 2 former players. One was a walk on for Brewster and basically never got to play. The other played under Brewster and Kill and was a starter for 2 years. Both of them have nothing bad to say about either coach. From all that we've heard about PJ, it seems hard to believe he'd be more hard core than either Brewster or Kill when it comes to pushing players and disregarding their health.
If it gains steam I'd be interested to hear the staff's side of the story.
