that being vegan causes more injuries. The idea that being vegan can cause more injuries seems to have been made up on Tigerboard and for some reason, people believe it. Porter's injuries are more than likely hereditary and not vegan related but for some reason, people want to try and blame veganism.

"Genetics play a real factor in injuries like the strength of your ligaments, the laxity in your ligaments, and your body-mass index. Some people just have weaker ligaments, some people have weaker backs, it's the way they're built."

Porter Jr. and his herniated disc is a prime example. He's jumped tens of thousands of times in his life, but that's not the problem --- it's when he lands.

But ...

"It's not just the impacts, it's all the hyper-extension (when your back goes backwards) he does that puts a load on your disc space," Snyder said. "That can lead not only to a herniated disc, but stress fractures.

"Having said that, it's almost unheard of for an 18 year-old to have this, like 1 in 10,000."

There's another good example of the genetics at work, right here in Jefferson City.

"Look and Mike and Kirk Farmer, both of them hurt, constantly," Snyder said. "I wasn't here went Mike was here (in the 1960s), but Kirk Farmer (1990s) is built like a Greek Adonis and he couldn't make it through a season.

"He got hurt his junior year with the Jays, he got hurt every year he was at Mizzou --- broke his leg, broke his hand, broke his collarbone. It was every, stinkin' year. If you looked at him, he was the last person you'd think would get hurt.

"Some people, genetically, are just not as strong in their bones or ligaments. And there's absolutely nothing you can do about it.

"And honestly, with the Porters, I think there's also been a lot of bad luck."
