Indianapolis Crew Transporting Kevin Ware Stayed Calm Amid Tears, Shock

(By Zak Keefer, and Shari Rudavsky)

"What you saw (Sunday) was everything we'd rehearsed, every single day, leading up to the event," said Ralph Reiff, who often runs the emergency medical crew at major sports events in Indianapolis. "You have a switch, and you do what you need to do."

The Louisville guard underwent successful surgery, and is already getting around on crutches, preparing to make the trip to his hometown of Atlanta to watch him teammates play in the Final Four.

Nice post, they did seem to do a fantastic job from the replay's I saw.

I think the teammate who was able to stay with Ware and tap him on the chest deserves some kudos as well, while no one else could look on (that would have been me too), he was right there with Ware trying to help as best he could, was nice to see.

Hopefully Ware is capable of a full recovery.

TWO YEARS LATER:

 

Amazingly, Ware actually came back and played 9 games last year for Louisville. ) O.o

He was able to get a red-shirt by sitting out the rest of the season, and transferred to Georgia State.

Ware had the best season of his career this year, starting for the first time ever (he was a reserve at Louisville), and helping lead the 14th-seeded Panthers to a stunning upset of #3-seeded Baylor in the N.C.A.A. tournament before they fell to Xavier in a tightly-contested Round of 32 game.

Ware has one more year of eligibility left (he will be a 5th-year senior next season.)

It will be great to see if his new team (Georgia State) can match or better what they were able to accomplish this season. ) :cool:

Ware is getting more playing time and scoring more pointed per game than he has n his entire 5-year college career now:

I'm happy for him, and glad to see that he is apparently faring very well, 3 years after his gruesome injury.

    • Looks like we are about even on slot amounts if Henderson's 2.3M amount is accurate.  Potential savings on both Rutschman and Watson deals.  I expect a minimum of 500K between those two deals.  Might be playing hardball with Watson.
    • This is not a surprise. One-dimensional guys don’t usually have trade value.
    • With Gunnar and AR signed, I'm content. Anything else is icing on the cake, IMO.  I do like both cake and icing. 
    • Your assumption is that the old man listened.  I disagree that he did or that AJ had any impact at all.  Peter Angelos did what Peter Angelos wanted to do.  Yes, Adam expressed very publically that he wanted Davis, Markakis, O’Day signed, David Price pursued, etc etc.   Buck said it in a more veiled and sophisticated way for PR purposes as he knew his role.  Brady never really said squat publically because he was a behind the scenes guy who had no official spokesman role.  Dan was Dan...Mr. Oblique, clearly not his call, but not somebody, after his Toronto dalliance, who was in any position to influence or advocate a different view with the old man.  Peter Angelos knew that Adam Jones was his employee, and was just a player, and knew Buck and DD and Brady were his employees too.   Period.   The deal was done by Peter Angelos and nobody else. 
    • I don't disagree with the conclusion, but I think it's overstated, and that if Mancini could maintain his current level of production, he should attract some serious intreese among contending teams (or teams that view themselves as contenders) looking to add offensive punch. If you throw Trey in with qualifying first baseman in both leagues, this season Trey would be tied for fifth in OPS, tied for seventh through 11th in HRs and 17th in RBIs. (In the latter two categories, there are two NYYs who are ahead of or tied with Trey.) He has hit better on the road than at Camden Yards. I would certainly expect his RBIs, and maybe his other stats, to improve if he played for a decent offensive team.  I think that package might appeal to some teams, though it probably would take beyond the end of July to establish the kind of consistency to attain that interest.
    • Things are falling into place nicely. If Rutschman and Henderson both sign up, that only leaves us with Watson (3), Dashbach (11), Hammer (13) and Roth (29) unsigned among our top 33 picks.  
    • Looks like the over slot money to Henderson is almost exactly what we saved on under slots so far.  Well orchestrated by Elias.  Looks like any late round over slots come down to Rutschman's deal.
