Wow, I had the understanding it happened today. Well at least he has already had surgery and is on path to recovery. God speed Banks, we all have your back

down of football at Clemson, he will certainly accomplish great things in his professional life in whatever he chooses to pursue. I had the distinct pleasure of attending the annual Iptay banquet on the floor of Littlejohn last May. Two student athletes are chosen each year to speak in front of the 500+ attendees, one female and one male athlete. They obviously have to be very intelligent, be model citizens and representative of everything Clemson stands for. Travis Blanks gave a rousing speech that made me want to offer him a job upon graduation and then train him for my industry, regardless of his educational background.

He is a tremendously gifted young man and makes me proud to be Tiger. Obviously, we all want Travis back in a uniform and knocking heads for the Tigers next year.......we need his leadership on a young defense. But Again, don't worry about Travis if he never plays again for Clemson. He will be very successful at whatever he does in his life.

Mo, as I understand it he had acl surgery and re-injured it. Man, I hope that's
not true. Otherwise he would need further surgery.


Did he re-tear it, or was this a cleanup?***

Happened six weeks ago and they're just letting the public in on it?

Terrible setback for Blanks, hate it for him


They just found out too.

Really unfortunate. Tough to overcome 2 of these in your college career. Wish for the best for him.

Idk... Just makes me question how competent the doctors and training staff are with these injuries i.e. Charone Peake. Are they coming back too early, or are these just a couple of unfortunate incidents?

And here you will see the guy who doesn't understand

Anything that pertains to sports related injury, rehabilitation, surgery or how ligaments work so they blame an outside individual because they can't find anyone to blame. This is just the way they injuries are especially knees. Anyone who has had knee surgery can tell you its a far from perfect process and everyones body reacts differently, some are good to go extremely quickly and some will be plagued with inflammation and knee pain for the rest of their life. Everyone doesn't have the same knees, ligaments are different in everybody some are harder to fix in others. For travis blanks and peake it's just bad luck.

####, I've never torn one, but still hurt from me being

stupid and running through some severe knee tendinitis. You don't even have to tear it to be bothered by it.


Bummer!


Posted: Jan 26, 2015 5:21 PM
 

Praying for a complete and speedy recovery.

He's having the same kind a luck as Tony Steward. Hopefully for his sake he will make a full recovery soon.

I'm hearing his first surgery was never right.

His knee never felt right. Hearing this second surgery he's feeling alot better.

Weird that 2 high profile ACLs have sucked

Peake and Blanks both seem to have had dud surgeries.

so late in the process with only 1 or 2 spots left, I guess.

Keep your head up Kid!!! Theres a lot of time before spring practice. Positivity and understand that "this too will pass" put the work in and buy into the program.


ummmmm.......can somebody tell the real of what happened....


Posted: Jan 26, 2015 8:37 PM
 

Hmmmmm.......ok, so Blanks just had surgery on Jan 16, couple of weeks ago. But he reinjured the knee back in bowl practice. Don't even say the trainers and doctors didn't realize this when it happened. If so time for a new team doctor and new trainers. However, why was he even practicing? He was taking the entire year off to get his body back right and his mind back right rumors have it. So why in the h*ll is he practicing live for a bowl game when he hasn't set foot in one regular season game all of 2014..........things that make u go hmmmmmm!!


I am all in, but we seem to be less than forthright as it


Posted: Jan 26, 2015 8:43 PM
 

pertains to reporting injuries. Dabo seems to paint a rosy picture about injuries. Also, we should have the very best orthopedic doctor doing these.......like Andrews in Alabama?

REALLY?


Posted: Jan 26, 2015 8:47 PM
 

Dr. Bowman is the team surgeon and is one of the best in the NATION! He performed my knee surgery and it went perfectly. Some are just pre dispositioned with bad ligaments and just because we are fans, we aren't automatically allowed this information. If you call yourself a CLEMSON TIGERS, then cheer this kid on!


WOW I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT WE AS FANS AREN'T PRIVY TO

I guess the whooooshh is for you as well.

I'm not saying at all that we as fans deserve to know everything that happens on the team, but if your gonna report something at least tell the facts and the reason behind the facts. I know from personal experience things that are hush hush as for injuries on a college team, however to say that he didn't know when the injury occurred if complete bs. Nor one that's throwing the team Drs and trainers under the bus for not doing there job properly and evaluating this player. Maybe he knows he can't compete with the talent we have back there now, and maybe this will turn into a career ending injury.......makes no sense to miss spring practice tho. This could have been avoided all together, but time will tell......


Out for next season?


Posted: Jan 27, 2015 7:51 AM
 

This is terrible news for this young man. Nobody should have to go through ACL tear/surgery, but to then have to do it again sucks. Easy to talk about it as a "don't worry, he will just have surgery again", but surgery is not fun, nor is the rehab. Good luck Travis!

Any ideas if he is out for next year or will he be ready to go sometime in 2015

We eagerly await your return Travis.
