When it comes to this week’s football stories, Dr. Julian Bailes is no Katie Couric.
Everybody is goosed to see Couric’s interview with Manti Te’o. Almost nobody wants to read what Bailes had to say, even though it could have about a million times more impact.
Bailes and his colleagues have found a way to detect serious concussion damage in living patients. That’s a boiled-down explanation of the study published Tuesday in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
Another way to put it is the nerdy guys in white lab coats may well crush football’s macho culture.
