No way of knowing, but I think the rash of foot injuries to key players amounts to nuthin' more than bad luck. I doubt there is anyone to blame.
I totally disagree. I don't know as much as Puff, but overuse while playing heavier than what is optimal (excess mass) contributes, imo.

James Love was far from being heavier that what is optimal. They may be doing weight training that is detrimental but Love was not heavy at all.

Perhaps it's more than bad luck, but perhaps not.

As far as I know, there is no "proof" the foot injuries were/are more than coincidence.

If there is a reason, I hope they find out about it soon and get it fixed.

I assume if we fans on a message board are discussing this, then I'm fairly sure the coaching staff has been, as well. Hopefully, it is nothing more than just a string of unfortunate luck.

Get well soon, James.

Perhaps they should replace their medical and training staffs.

No team in the nation has anywhere near the numbers of games lost due to foot injuries that ours. I have said on here many times before, but someone needs to dig deep into this FACT and find out just WHY that is the case. If my kid was being recruited to play in Manhattan, it would be one of my top few questions to ask the coaching staff.
There’s something in the water for sure. I have my suspicions as I’ve stated several times. This is what I know for sure. The same guy who had two broken metatarsals in both feet, a completely torn plantar fasciitis, and numerous other foot injuries in Manhattan hasn’t had a twinge in many more minutes than he ever had at K-State. And that’s in summer league, 20 some NBA tryouts, G league, and the NBA. Go figure.
There is an enormous amount of smoke for there to be no fire imo. I guess hypothetically the plethora of foot injuries our bigs have experienced were just bad luck but it isn't statistically likely.

missouri lost a 5* porter kid last year and 4* tillmon this year to foot injuries.
Um.....no. Porter was multiple knee injuries. But thanks for playing.
If you’re talking Michael Porter, I thought it was back issues. Kept him from playing his first year with the Denver Nuggets also.

Exactly. I suppose in a court of law you couldn’t call it proof but a preponderance of the evidence shows there is a problem. Dean’s history this year vs. his career is about all you need to look at. DJ is another example. He could never really practice his entire career at K- State after his broken foot. And that’s over 3 years. And then he’s just “lucky” that he goes overseas a few months after he graduates and plays professionally for 3 years and has absolutely no foot problems?? Don’t think so either. And same extended problems in college for Maurice, Williams, Shadd, and Love?

Correct. Love wasn't, but Dean and DJ probably accrued more muscle mass than what was optimal for their frames, especially when you factor in the continuous training methods. I may be wrong, but I think it's happened way too much to be coincidence, especially when you factor in how healthy Dean has been since he left.

This argument is kind of moot. Everyone hopes the foot problems of our bigs goes away.
