Arians' backup plan was teaching P.E. and driver's ed while coaching football
ESPN
If Bruce Arians had it his way back in 1974, he would've been calling plays in a Washington, D.C., suburb, passing his offensive ingenuity onto a younger generation of football players. But instead of sharing it with Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, his plan was to draw up go routes and double moves for a junior high team in Reston, Virginia.

So should everyone just ditch milk altogether? The evidence against milk seems pretty damning if you conveniently ignore one of the most important words in the study title: cohort.
