On Radio and Television

University Beat gets you ready for some football with a visit to USF Bulls' practice, where the team isn't just preparing for the new season - they're also taking part in research that could one day save the lives of players from all levels, pee-wee to professional. The Director of the USF Division of Sports Medicine, Doctor Eric Coris, explains how a tiny pill that's actually a high-tech thermometer helps his staff know which players are showing signs of heat illnesses long before symptoms appear.
