MSU’s Nickoe Whitley Played Most of ’13 with Torn ACL

I don’t know about you, but I think if a guy can play through the season with a torn knee ligament, he should have his own line in the school fight song:

“I met with Nickoe and said, ‘Hey, you can have surgery now and hopefully be healed for the (NFL) combine, or you can suck it up and play with it the rest of the year. It’s not going to get a lot worse. You’ll still have to have the surgery afterward,’” Mullen said according to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger. “He said, ‘I’m not giving up on the team, I’m going to play it out, and I’ll (have surgery) after the last regular-season game.’”
