Central Florida wide receiver Ereck Plancher was showing signs of distress during a team workout before he collapsed and later died, four UCF players told the Orlando Sentinel.

Plancher, 19, of Naples, Fla., collapsed and was taken to a hospital on March 18. He was pronounced dead a half-hour after the workout, known as a "mat drill."

The players, speaking on condition they remain anonymous, told the newspaper that the practice was more intense than the basic conditioning workout described by UCF officials in the immediate wake of Plancher's death.
Looks like George O'Leary is still a pretty prolific liar.
I'm at UCF as a grad student for about 10 more minutes, and I'll be the first to tell you that George O'Leary is a complete *******. In the two years I spent here listening to his interviews and post game comments, it would not surprise me in the least if he was dogging that poor kid while he was showing signs of severe fatigue and problems.
