You ain't, unless you are willing to play ACC football a mere six weeks after having your spleen rupture during a game. That is exactly what Clemson's Cole Downer intends to do this week. Downer lost 4 pints of blood, endured a week long hospital stay and lost 20 pounds. Why you ask is Downer so intent on playing? In his words:

"This is my last year playing. I want to get in as many games as I could."

Sounds reasonable enough to me.
