Steven Threet Medically Retires from Football

Former Michigan starting quarterback Steven Threet has decided to give up football after sustaining two concussions last season at Arizona State and four concussions in the last five years. I don't know how the rest of you feel, but I can't help but feel sorry for Steven. If he didn't have bad luck, he seemingly would have no luck at all, at least when it comes to college football. First he committed to play at Georgia Tech under Chan Gailey. Gailey gets fired and replaced by Paul Johnson, who runs the option offense. Then he transfers back to Michigan to possibly start for a year or two after Ryan Mallett leaves for the NFL. Instead, Lloyd Carr retires and Rich Rodriguez is hired and installs an offense that Steven wasn't a good fit for all. Steven stuck it out for a year and then bolted for a third chance at running a pro style offense. Unfortunately for Steven, he chose Arizona State with its terrible offensive line and now he's out of football forever with one year of eligibility remaining. Best of luck to Steven in the future, it sounds like he still has post-concussion symptoms, hopefully he fully recovers soon.
