Former UCLA linebacker Patrick Larimore joined the show to explain why he left the team after suffereing head injuries.

Larimore said that his teammates and UCLA were both very supportive. He said his teammates were more concerned about his long-term health than

Larimore said he suffered “horrible” mood swings. He also said it was very difficult to sleep.

“There’s a lot of confusion,” Larimore said. “You’re usually isolated from the team. You don’t feel like you’re with your brothers any more.”

Larimore talked about how hard it will be for him to watch the Bruins’ season-opener against Rice.

Larimore said for him the key is for players to be able to openly communicate about concussion and symptoms.

Dan asked Larimore if he would let his kids play the game at some point. “I love football so much I can’t even describe it. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to play it. … I can’t sit here and say I’m not going to let my son play.”
