Anybody watch Duke-Loiusville?

Specifically that horrendous injury to the Louisville guy? That was sickening.

I think that it looked worse than Theisman's. One of those one's that gives you an instant sick feeling in your stomach.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: Anybody watch Duke-Loiusville?

It was difficult to watch. And if you caught Pitino's post-game comments, he laid it all out there. Said the bone was sticking several inches out of the young man's leg and all the kid could keep yelling was, "Win the game guys! Win the game!"

Prayers to that young man on this Easter Sunday, may he make a full recovery to play again, or at least not have any permanent affects that hinder his life after sports. He was just trying to hustle and make a play. It's just a game.

My own daughter is an Athletic Training major, a senior, at the University of Mount Union. Sounds like one of those proverbial "dumb jock" majors but just the opposite. Mount Union was one of the first to offer this as a specific major, and the number of clinical hours these students put into it are unreal. They work different sports hands-on starting right from the get-go, and she's seen broken bones, knees, ankles, busted noses, but nothing like this. I doubt few professional trainers have.

She did not see it live but saw the replays. Her knowledge of the anatomy and description of what they were probably seeing and dealing with makes me cringe.

The trainers immediately cover it with a towel so that the player, and more importantly those on the bench and stands are spared the sight. It is very important to try to keep the injured athlete as calm as possible, as well as everyone around him. She said with an injury of that severity, it is likely the pain was not as bad as we imagine due to physical and mental shock.

The reaction of all the players on the court and bench said it all. I like the NCAA March Madness, but I have no particular favorite. Now I'm rooting for Louisville to win it all so that young man might have a chance to be there to cut down the nets in his hometown of Atlanta.

A closed mind keeps the truth out

Especially since he'll likely never play the game again.

Exactly, most good hoops players go straight from high school to the NBA, which is why I think college basketball is the most pointless version of the worst sport on earth.

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

I'm not a big basketball fan, but I think the college version of the game is way better than the pros. In college, showboating is much lower and they actually play defense.

I gotta agree with you. I don't know how anybody can watch the NBA.

Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious
