  • TBP Ticker

Hi Guest,

In our efforts to raise funds for USF Football, the site is giving away a football season full of ad-free surfing at The Bulls Pen.

Would you consider buying a ticket or two to the raffle that will award this to you or a fellow member of the board?

Each ticket purchase goes directly to our effort to raise $10K in "fan money" for the program.  Below is the link:

Article finally posted about this today. Below is an excerpt:

Quote

Since May 13, McFarland has resided in a private room on the fourth floor of Ocala Regional Medical Center. In that morning’s wee hours, the red Infiniti sedan he was driving was rear-ended by a Ford F-150 on northbound I-75 in Marion County, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

From his bed, in a soft voice, McFarland says he remembers getting out of his car and walking to the rear of the vehicle to assess the damage.

His next memory is of waking up in the hospital affixed to a labyrinth of tubes.

Another FHP report, filed by a different trooper from essentially the same location, indicates McFarland stepped from the median of northbound I-75 toward the left traffic lane when he was struck by the driver-side mirror of a Nissan Versa. The front right corner of the Versa then struck the left rear side of a GMC Denali SUV, causing one to overturn and the other to hit a utility pole.

 

No fatalities were reported, and neither alcohol nor drug use was suspected. McFarland, who finished his USF career with 55 receptions, was cited for leaving a place of safety and entering the path of a vehicle.

He also broke his left tibia and fibula, fractured another bone in his right leg, suffered a lacerated colon and liver, a broken jaw, fractured rib and a broken right ankle. The accident left him in a coma for roughly two weeks.

We should.

Happy to see he is smiling in that bed after what he's been through, and still has to face.

If you arrange it on behalf us here at the Pen, I'll contribute as well as make up any shortfall.

I am about to leave on a trip in 5 minutes though.

Boy the citation is adding insult to injury. That's a pretty rare citation. He was prob disoriented from initial wreck which could screw up your thought process thus bad timing or decision. Best part is Mike will mend his way out of this life hurdle.

answered prayers, he should be smiling--could have gone so much worse...

Happy to hear "full recovery", speedy return Mike!
