The Birmingham based S.W.A.T.S. group is mentioned meeting with two Alabama defenders and explaining how their products worked.
I dont need an article to tell me that. I got eyes. Jimbo needs to get the " nutrition" program upgraded since the NCAA's turning a blind eye.
Sports Illustrated reported in its story a pitch made by Christopher Key, the other half of the two-man company, to Alabama players in the week before they played LSU in the 2012 BCS National Championship Game.
Ray Lewis was given a product to help heal his torn triceps that contains a banned substance, according to a Sports Illustrated report, although he has not tested positive and denies using it, a team official told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.
It would not shock me one bit. Guys look like monsters.
If the NCAA isn't cracking down on something it will happen. It wouldn't surprise me at all, there is a huge list of banned substances that are legal and easy to access. As a bodybuilder I have used dozens of substances that are banned by the NCAA but are perfectly legal to buy and use. (no I don't compete at anything)
Statement from Alabama on the SI article:
“UA has been aware of this situation for some time, and we have monitored this company for several years. They have twice ignored cease and desist letters sent by our compliance office. We have maintained consistent education of our student-athletes regarding the substances in question and will continue to do so.”

Almost made me say "no sh**" Haha
I've just stopped caring. With modern science, PEDs are pretty healthy and pose little to no risk... Except, you feel better... feel stronger, more motivated... and get to fully recover from injuries in half the amount of time...Someone please tell me where do sign up?
If your occupation = giant bad asses, with abnormal size and genetics from the get go, natural super human strength and speed... who are choosing to collide with each other at high rates of speed.
Why in the hell should I be concerned about said bad asses taking substances that pose little to no danger... while supporting an occupation that poses TONS of danger to them, which will almost assure they end up crippled at some point, much earlier in their lifetime.... and have a short term memory that is borderline Alzheimer....
I equate this to someone in the army in afghanistan who smokes. Oh noes, smoking's not healthy.
The PEDs may increase the risk slightly, but with modern nutrition... I just don't view it of that significant of a change. The likelyhood of life-altering injuries over a career in college/nfl = very little effect due to PED usage.
Honestly, does anyone really care?
Not necessarily true.
The Future is Now.
The risk of ligament and tendon injuries as well as cardiovascular disease is significantly increased with the use of anabolic/androgenic hormone use.
On a different note, PED's are ingrained in the culture of sports worldwide, especially football. Anyone who refuses to believe this is naive. This is why I laughed and shook my head at the media's sensationalism of PED's.
This is my shocked face................

To act like almost every college football program whether it be any 4 year, prep school, junior college does not have at the very least one player on PED's is laughable too. I played for Fresno City college 8 years ago and in the two years there, I can think of probably 10 that used them.
The best part about this story other than it being a witch is that it fails to explain exactly what deer antler velvet actually is and what the players are trying to get out of it. First of all DAV is a natural extract from deer antlers hence the name. It has been found that the velvet contains IGF-1 which is what your body turns HGH into after it is metabolized by the endocrine system. The laughable part is you just can't ingest IGF-1 and expect it to have the same effect on the body as when you own body does the conversion itself in the blood stream. The ONLY way to sufficiently increase your bodies own IGF-1 is to inject the peptide directly into your blood stream. You can take all the deer antler spray and cream all you want and all you are going to do is piss out a lot of money. Deer antler is sold at GNC. What I tell my athletes is that if you can buy it in the store the general rule is that it doesn't have a significant effect on the body. The only thing it can do is trigger a positive drug test.
They asked Lance Armstrong how to stop doping in sports? His response = In order to catch it, you have to test on a frequent interval to determine baseline testosterone levels and abnormal spikes...
A random drug test, which test for the precursors... doesn't have a clue what your baseline T is... so it doesn't know if it's "high/spiked" or not... and cant be taken into consideration. To top it off, the precursor test is passable within a mere 18-hours of taking the banned PEDs.... with a passing specific gravity...
But you ask -- what if you don't have don't have 18-hours to cleanse?
30 minutes of chugging water will overflow your body and cause it to default into passing water. This will produce an inconclusive test, and trigger a re-test.... likely to take place outside of the 18-hour window.
In other words, the NCAA/MLB/NFL can bend over.... unless they think they can get the unions to agree to testing every other day...and are willing to spend the gazillion dollars it takes to pull it off fairly.

But who was prohormone.
Are you asking what about pro hormones or what are pro hormones or is DAV a pro hormone? Either way DAV is not a pro hormone, PH's have been removed from shelves since their ban in 2005 and yes some are effective but most dont have lasting effects or are no where near as effective as anabolic steroids.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but apparently deer antlers have something in them that gives athletes a boost or something. I think they use it as a spray or something? Not really sure.
