    Aaron Hernandez found to have severe CTE. One of the examiners said it was the worst case he has seen in someone Hernandez's age.

    Probably can't blame CTE on him being a murderous thug, but it likely didn't help, either.

    That's a lot of prison fights! Not that I'd put it past him.

    I post this this morning and then I read this article. Doh!

    Cranial collisions are haunting the sports world more and more. A recent survey of 111 former football player's brains found that 110 showed signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative disease caused by repeated blows like those delivered in the high-contact sport.

    In my defense, it isn't in the headline, just the first paragraph.

    At least BYU is stepping in to save the day.
