Suicide isn't a new thing, bro. Been going on through recorded history. I would bet this kid had some sort of untreated mental illness (depression, bi-polar, etc.) Throw in the stresses of college academics, college football, and being away from home and it could be a perfect storm for a tragedy like this. I think college football coaches need to keep an eye on their players for stuff like this. We do a good job with physical injuries, but we need to keep an eye on their mental health more, imo. No player should ever feel embarrassed to approach his coaches about something like this and the university should have mental health professionals on staff. It's sad, man. I hate reading about shite like this. There's no need for it to happen.

What does that kid's generation and their coping skills have to do with mental health?

I feel for his family. Lost my younger brother the same way. Not easy to deal with. Questions will never be answered.

If you're serious please go seek help. Depression is an illness that can deter rational thinking. The good thing is it is treatable. I urge you to talk to a physician.

Check out the comments on the tweet. A young life is gone and all people want to talk about is the word "demise" used in the press release. :banghead:
