Kevin Coble keeping himself busy
By Eamonn Brennan
Injured Northwestern star Kevin Coble isn't doing what I'd be doing if I was rendered immobile by a Lisfranc fracture (and the subsequent reconstructive surgery) in my left foot: attempting to beat Modern Warfare 2 on "hardened" without ever dying. Rather, Coble is doing what highly motivated athletes do. He's challenging himself. Fortunately, there's video of these challenges.
Coble told Willhite one of the main positives to his injury is the ability to lift weights and get stronger when he is still relatively sedentary and can add weight. Practical, but I'd say one of the main positives is entertaining me with trick shots. Or developing an unstoppable 60-foot range which could revolutionize the game of basketball forever. Different strokes, I guess.
