Boise State's Ian Johnson, college football's touchdown leader, is in the hospital with a partially collapsed lung.
I didn't read the whole article, but it's not exactly clear what caused the injury. The most likely scenario is that it's a sucking chest wound suffered from shrapnel as a result of an improvised explosive device (IED). In this kind of scenario, the best treatment is to seal off the wound with a piece of plastic taped down on three of four sides — that will keep the lung inflated without letting him drown in his own blood.
Wait, Boise is in Iraq, right? My geography is kind of spotty sometimes.
This injury could have serious BCS implications, as the unbeaten Bronc–HAHAHAHA. Whew. Oh man, I almost finished that one. Boise State can go 8,713-0 this season, and they'd be lucky to break into the top 10.
