Re: FAU coach Howard Schnellenberger hospitalized

First off, he wasn't "hospitalized".

The team was in route to Gainesville via bus, with a police escort, and had the bus had some trouble.

When they stopped Schnellenberger was having some leg spasms associated with the recent replacement, and this was caused by the small amount of leg room we are all familiar with on buses.

When they got off, as a precautionary move, his surgeon (who was traveling with them) suggested that he head to the local ER (in an ambulance as to remain in a laying down position) to have some x-rays done just to ensure there was no movement of the replacement.

Tests were negative, he is in a separate vehicle a little ways back from the team now, and is hopeful to make it to the walk through and be back on the field shortly.

It is good to know that it is nothing serious, I'm sure he has been riding the bus with his team all these years that it only seems natural to continue doing it this week.
