Congratulations to CCSU, UVM and Wellesley

Congratulations to the Central Connecticut State men on making it to the DII championships and a national (#39) ranking. Also wish the UVM women (should be ranked after beating Colgate #19) all the best in their DII round of 16 matchup vs. Vassar. Looks like the weather will be a little bit better this weekend. Nice job also to Wellesley on making it to the NSCRO Championships last weekend.

Good luck CCSU and UVM!

ImPACT Testing Effectiveness Debated

If you want motivation to read it (which I doubt you’ll need), take this quote into consideration:

Yet a study — really a study of studies — published last year in Current Sports Medicine Reports reviewed the entire span of research on ImPACT and concluded: “[T]he false positive rate appears to be 30 percent to 40 percent of subjects of ImPACT … the false negative rate may be comparable. … The use of baseline neuropsychological testing … is not likely to diminish risk, and to the extent that there is a risk associated with ‘premature’ return-to-play … may even increase that risk.”
