ArtosRC: Saw the video on Youtube. Between this and Lattimore's gruesome injury, it's a toss-up.

I mean, it's horrific. Louisville better honor that scholarship.


They will.

In a way he's lucky the injury was so graphic and public. They can't afford to bring national attention to the regular exploitation of college athletes, and a high profile case like this would motivate legislatures to address the issue.

I watched it a dozen times while eating dinner

Birnone: ...splinters of bone were grinding around among the torn flesh and muscle.

I had that with my elbow (shattered). I remember my tricep spasming as the bone chips dug in. It took the pediatric surgeon between three or four hours to get them out.

If the internet has taught me one thing, it's to not look at stuff that people tell me not to look at. Ogrish broke me of that habit.

So I'm going to hope the kid ends up okay and be happy to keep this particular video from rattling around in my brain for the rest of my life.

shoegaze99: legion_of_doo: Bad enough that they killed the live feed. Bad enough that you don't want to see the replay even if you're curious, unless you're a total sadist.

This is one of those things where I'm curious just so I know what people are talking about, but can't bring myself to watch it because that sort of thing just doesn't sit well with me.


I'm not sure you need a video to know that the kid broke his lower leg in half

I saw the replay from the camera at the other end of the floor. I kept it in small low definition video and shut it off the instant I saw it.

Yikes, that was brutal.  The entire Louisville bench cowered in fear.

yes it was worse that theismann.

best wishes for a speedy recovery to kevin ware. i almost started crying after watching it live.

desertgeek: taglius: hershy799: I didn't get to watch the game, and I refuse to watch the injury... but on a scale of 1 to Theismann, how bad was the injury?

/Saw the Theismann video once, which was more than enough

It was about 1.22 Theismanns

Theismann.  Scale may need to be recalibrated bad, in fact.

What they said. Ware is the new Theismann.


Does that mean he's gonna tell us he needs to pee every five minutes as well?

VERY GRAPHIC CONTENT. You will be able to see the bone sticking out of the leg.

For those who missed it.

I caved, and clicked. What has been seen cannot be unseen.


Well, being as how you asked (and we'll all be weighing in, if we haven't already), where would you rate it?  Just curious.

I heard about the injury and came to the internets to see the video of it.  After seeing descriptions and reactions to it I decided not to watch.

Won't watch it...

This. Definitely this.

KiwDaWabbit: Myria: Did the bone go through the skin?

Yes, it was a compound fracture. I would estimate that it was protruding by three or four inches...difficult to say.


Doctors say 6 inches protrusion

Kevin Ware. There, it has been said. It was Kevin Ware that was injured in this game, not Joe Theismann. Joe Theissman has healed. If any non-sports people are reading this, it is Kevin Ware who was injured and would appreciate your healing thoughts and prayers.

My brother was watching the game, and all of the sudden I heard him gasp and then start moaning, like he was in pain. I came running because I thought he'd hurt himself, and he replayed the injury for me. It was gruesome.

I'd rate it at a Theismann, with the potential for a higher rating. The visible bone gives points in favor of Ware, but LT essentially giving Joe Theismann a new knee gives points to Theismann. It's quite possible that additional camera angles will require the scale to be re-calibrated with Ware being the new high score, but I'm seriously (this time) not going to watch those.

As awful as the injury looks, he'll probably recover fully. In the long run, it's much better to break a bone that to tear cartilage or a tendon.

I guess this is a good litmus test for those of us who don't care either way. Low standards means high options.

Reports are that he'll be out for a year, at least. If he's lucky, he'll play again as a senior.

Yeah, I think it depends on what we're really asking.  Theismann had the worse injury, hands down.  But I think this one was worse from a 'sh*t you might just as soon not see' standpoint.
 
2013-03-31 09:04:09 PM
Looks and sounds like a bone malformation or a disease of some kind. Not enough to snap a healthy leg bone. Did he have tattoos ? Paging Dr. House...

Pitino said after the game it's the same injury Michael Bush had.

Considering Michael Bush is now playing running back in the NFL that bodes well for his recovery.

after that mess, the NCAA might give him 5 extra years of eligibility. The Theismann of our generation. I hope to see him back playing ball.
 
2013-03-31 09:04:44 PM
Subby, you are a horrible, horrible person.  +1.

Prior to this, the worst injury I'd seen when it happened was McGahee at the Fiesta Bowl, and that was cringe worthy.  Nothing will take that cringe away, but this was worse, plain and simple.

hershy799: I didn't get to watch the game, and I refuse to watch the injury... but on a scale of 1 to Theismann, how bad was the injury?


Based on the Theismann video, I'd say that Theismann's injury was a 7/8 of a Ware.

I've heard speculation that he might have had a stress fracture already.

steveGswine: Didn't see the game, or the injury...  but I know that the hospital where he was taken (Methodist Hospital in Indy) is the one that puts Indy 500 drivers back together after they hit the wall.

I think they keep miracles in stock there.


Wow, that's awesome.  Considering the quality of their triage I wouldn't be surprised if he plays ball again.
 
2013-03-31 09:07:06 PM
Nasty injury, but the video is more "oooh, a leg shouldn't do that" than horrific gore. You can extrapolate from the video what that injury would've felt like and sounded like and looked like up close and *that's* pretty gruesome.

When I first saw it, I wondered how a guy who spends much of his life leaping through the air could have had such a huge break occur on a fairly routine landing.  There must have been something preexisting.

Um, no.  No, no, NO.  You're thinking of broken bones where the skin keeps everything covered.  This was a compound fracture.  With prompt medical attention (check), competent care (check I guess) and a little luck (?), he'll make a full recovery.  But if the luck element is missing or there's a goof during surgery or prep, he could lose the leg to infection.  The interior of bone is nice spongy blood factory.  It's not something you ever want exposed to air.

He'll probably recover fully?  Likely in this day and age, and the hospital's likely to take every precaution with such a high-profile injury.  But no no no no NO, this is one case where you'd gladly take torn cartilage AND a torn tendon.  Hell, throw in a couple blown-out ligaments while you're at it.

someone in the game thread saying that doesn't make it speculation.
 
2013-03-31 09:12:00 PM
I had a friend who was out jogging and snapped her femur. That's the upper leg bone, and the hardest to break. She was just jogging. It turns out there was a type of tumor in the bone, slowly growing and overtaking the bone mass, and replacing it with tumor. It snapped like a twig right above the knee with nothing more than a small leap off a curb to cause it.

/gross story, bro.
 
2013-03-31 09:12:52 PM
That one was in no way worse than Theismann.

Having said that, my buddy and I were only half-assed watching the game and I was unfortunate enough to be paying attention.We both just stopped dead in our tracks when it happened.

CBS showed 3 quick replays and then stopped them in favor of player reactions. Unfortunately, at least 2 of the player reactions had his injury lingering in the back ground with his shin damn near out of his skin (may have been).

On a scale of 1-10, id give it a 8. Just brutal.

Yeah, that was me, so I should be honest and say I have no formal medical training, so I could get smacked down by an M.D. here.  But otherwise, I really don't think bone should just snap like that on a landing, which led to the "maybe his leg was already damaged" hypothesis.
