ESPN said of Louisville's win (over Baylor. In the women's tournament) that "they shocked the world."

Yeah, or not.

i know i'm going to be the asshole here, but whatever, it's a broken leg.

Lawrence Taylor was one of the baddest dudes ever to put on an NFL uniform. He had a similar reaction to seeing Joe Theismann's bone poking out of his leg.

If you look at the Louisville roster, outside of Smith, there is no one that has stand out stats. They are a (undersized) defensive team that wins games by causing havoc with a relentless half court defense and full court press. In order for that to succeed, you need great, quick athletes at every position. One slow defender in a full court press usually leads to a slam dunk. Offensively, Smith is one of those guys that is going to get his points no matter what but their offense is really their defense.

Syracuse probably stands the best chance of beating them. They have a bigger backcourt and Williams is a stand out player on both ends of the court. Their 2-3 zone creates havoc because they are also great athletes than can move quickly and defend spots on the floor, they are very long inside (twss) and block a lot of shots. That being said, outside of Williams there is no offensive star so it comes down to which team can hold the other to 50 points or less.

I've managed to avoid seeing the clip. I intend to keep it that way.

The funny thing is (or not so funny in this case) is that he and a Duke player just jumped up for a ball, he came down and his right leg just gave out, it was weird. It wasn't like someone landed on him or one of those dunk attempts where the guys get their legs cut from under them. Never seen anything like it in basketball. On that type of play, you would expect a rolled ankle or some knee issue at worse.

Same here. I'm glad I was driving and listening to the game rather than watching the game on tv. Had I seen it on tv I probably would have been in tears, too.

I heard this morning that they're going to use a redshirt on him next year and hope he's ready for the following. I turned away when they started the replays, but I caught the end of one just to see his leg hanging there while on the ground. That was bad enough.

The most shocking part of that story is that he has a $3 mln contract to coach basketball at Rutgers, a state school that should be playing division II basketball. What am asshole on so many counts.

Yeah, when you work in post-secondary education, you think a lot about how much some coaches make.

Tom Izzo commentating got asked about the Rutgers situation and said "if I did that to my guys, they'd beat me up". Probably true.
