Jasper Brinkley's Worst Fear

All-SEC Linebacker Jasper Brinkley may have jinxed himself earlier this season.

Anyone who follows SEC football at all knows that Brinkley is out for the season after suffering a knee injury very early in South Carolina's game against LSU game last weekend. I was flipping through an ESPN magazine at my house and stumbled across this quote from the 9/24/07 issue regarding his biggest fear...

(My biggest fear is) tearing my ACL. It seems like every person in their senior year gets hurt, and it's always the ACL. I remember I tweaked my hamstring in practice, and all I could think was ACL, ACL, ACL.
