Brian Kelly spoke on the SEC Coaches Teleconference Wednesday morning about safety Greg Brooks Jr., who underwent emergency surgery last week to remove a brain tumor.

Brooks, who suffered from vertigo in fall camp, experienced another "dizziness episode" last Wednesday, which led to him having an MRI that revealed the tumor, Kelly said.

Before the surgery, Brooks expressed a desire to play again this season, but Kelly could not give an educated answer on his return as there are many questions that still need to be figured out.

This story has really made me think about the recent episodes I've had with vertigo. My doctor explained it away as a malady we face as we age, something to do with the small hairs deep in our ears help regulate the body's equilibrium, but after having multiple episodes of it in the last few months, after reading this, it's very disconcerting, and I will speak to my family doctor about this. When your legs get gimpy under you, and world is swimming in front of your eyes, it's a frightening thing. I used to think vertigo was just people getting butterflies in their stomach looking out over the edge to someplace far below. When you've experienced it, though, it's nothing like that at all. If he's having those kinds of symptoms and they discovered it was caused by a brain tumor, he is one lucky guy.

I mean an MRI is fairly cheap to find out what’s going on. I’ve had vertigo once in my lifetime and it was around age 22 and it’s never occurred again. That could be explained away as your Dr. said but I would absolutely check that out, especially if you’re having any kind of headaches. Dr.s are people just like us and if you have a personal relationship then I’d definitely get another opinion at the very least. I feel for Brooks. Hope he has a full recovery and best wishes to you as well. Check that out!

I was checked several years ago but it did wind up being an old age issue. Never hurts to find out.

God bless you and your family Greg.

Praying for a speedy recovery.

I’ll be rooting for you every day until you run out of the tunnel at Jordan-Hare next season….and probably still will.

Godspeed.
