    Yep, never was the same after that. Was one of the nastiest falls I’ve seen in person in a college game.

    Copes also had a congenital hip condition - https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/george-masons-erik-copes-stuck-in-the-blocks:

    "Return from hip injury has been quite painful

    A surgically repaired hip has rendered George Mason's Erik Copes a shadow of the shot-blocking defensive force he was in his freshman year."

    "Copes knew recovery from surgery would be a long process. According to Dr. Thomas Byrd of Nashville, Tenn., who performed the procedure April 19, Copes had femoroacetabular impingement, a condition in which the hip bones are abnormally formed. Over time, they rub against each other and cause damage to the joint. As a result, Copes tore his right labrum in three places last year."
