Uh oh. That's far too unusual too be coincidental. My immediate reaction is that they were ingesting creatine incorrectly. Or worse, they were unknowingly ingesting large amounts of creatine.

I hope the new coach wasn't encouraging excessive creatine use. If he is somehow implicated in this, he could be in trouble.

Coach, I see lawsuits in your future.

Maybe somebody on the team pee'd off a voodoo priest?
