    OT:NCAA leader in receiving yards is done with football

    Injured Ball State WR Love likely out of football

    By MICHAEL MAROT, AP Sports Writer 2 hours, 3 minutes ago


    MUNCIE, Ind. (AP)—Ball State officials said injured receiver Dante Love will probably never play football again.

    Love was hurt during the second quarter of a game Saturday night at Indiana and underwent a 5-hour operation Sunday for a broken spine and an injury to his spinal cord.

    The university had said after the surgery that Love could move his arms and legs.

    “Due to the injury Dante sustained, his football career is expected to be over,” coach Brady Hoke told reporters during his weekly news conference Monday. “He should have normal and healthy functions for the rest of his life. He touched a lot of lives, and he will continue to do so.”

    Love entered Saturday’s game as the nation’s leader in yards receiving per game (144.3), and the fleet 5-foot-10, 179-pound senior was considered an NFL draft prospect.

    That's awful news.

    Football is a brutal sport. I love the game, but sometimes I can't help feeling like I'm in ancient Rome watching gladiators go at each other.

    Professional football players deserve every penny they get. And college players should be compensated in some way.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to this kid.
