Game starting to slow down for player suffering stroke

Moments after he told coaches and teammates that the game was finally starting to slow down for him, Texas State freshman quarterback Blake Bailey was rushed to the hospital due to suffering what doctors are calling a massive stroke. "Blake came off the field and tried to say something to me," said offensive coordinator Chip Myers. "Something about the gauge plowing town? I don't know. It was complete gibberish. He was slurring all of his words." Bailey is expected to miss the rest of the season and may never play football again. Head coach Mike Larson hopes that's not the case. "We're getting into the heart of our conference schedule right now," he said. "If you don't have a broken bone, you need to be out there. Strokes are like stingers. Sit out a play and get back on the field."
