    Maggard said he was thinking about it and not sure how to implement it. My God, nothing hard here. Make and appointment and go take a physical. If it is mandatory the athletic department pays for it, if not it's up to you and your insurance.

    Please don't let the insurance mess this up.

    In the old days a number of companies had physicals, including some who did heart & GI testing, as part of their yearly medical plans. I don't think it's a bad deal for either party.

    It should not only be suggested, but expected.

    Almost all group carriers include an annual checkup. Really this shouldn't be a big decision.

    Friends and I talked about this after Robe's passing. This should be mandatory every summer for every coach on staff. We need this to happen. Even though I can't figure out why any coach over 40 would not be doing an annual physical.
