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.

    • Lamar has at times been awful outside the hash marks yes, and certainly leaves a lot to be desired there. I too have my doubts as to how much he’ll be able to improve in that facet of his game. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t. But it’s abundantly clear to everyone except you that the passing game, particularly outside the numbers, has got to improve for us to win a championship. It’s just the way the league is now. And being that Lamar is going to be our QB for quite some time, the only way to improve said passing game is by infusing it with more pass catchers who can create separation and/or present mismatches, and/or beat press coverage. And Because of the perception of Lamar and our scheme that you eloquently highlighted in your post, it will be difficult to attract those pass catchers via free agency, leaving the draft as the best and perhaps only means of acquiring them. So I say address the pass rush and the o-line via free agency and spend a first rounder on a potentially elite target for Lamar. I like Pitts because he can do all of the things I mentioned above that will help keep defenses honest and keep the middle of the field less crowded for Lamar and the running backs. All pretty basic logic. 
    • They are going to keep expanding the passing game.  They have said this.  Part of the reason they haven’t is the lack of weapons.     I don’t think they get Pitts at 13 but if he was at 13, they would take him, for sure.   Just as they would take one of Waddle, Chase or Smith if they fell. And they certainly could trade down but they also could trade up some as well, if a weapon fell that they wanted. Tons of options but it’s very clear that adding more weapons for Lamar is on the agenda.
    • o   Actually, I did not know that. I only went there one time, when my cousin Donnie took me to see an Orioles/Yankees game in April of 1979. I knew about Wild Bill Hagy and Leonard "Big Wheel" Burrier (the Colts super fan), and that it was known as "The Asylum on 33rd Street." I also knew about the row of white houses that were situated directly in back of the stadium behind center-field, which some opposing hitters claimed gave Jim Palmer an extra advantage because his overhand delivery of the white baseball often blended in with those white houses ...... but I didn't know about the acoustics of the stadium making it louder. Thanks for the info.   o
    • How is it wrong ?    wait and see who they’d add off the scrap heap or draft! They won’t even sniff Pitts is they get the #13. They will trade back for additional picks as they should and fix the line.    They aren’t going to throw anymore than marginally more ....period!    You saying it’s wrong and being wrong are two very different things my friend.    Lamar wants to run! Roman wants to run! After those things happen the passing game gets the leftovers. Plus ...Lamar sucks at passing outside the numbers down the field. That’s why opponents are giving them 10 inside the hash looks. 
    • I won't lie, the Braves signing Travis Snider the other day stung a little here. Tejada still has him by 2407-2388.   I half feel that if Diaz has to wait 6 weeks - I'd rather it be for Markakis than DJ Stewart. Edwin Encarnacion is the only one ahead of him in Service Time among the unsigned FA in Fangraphs tracker.
    • I don’t see how you can have total trust in a guy, a guy who has barely been here relatively speaking and then question his methods and evaluation of talent.  It doesn’t make much sense. It’s not like Elias has some history as a GM to give him the benefit of the doubt.    His only history that is really positive is working with the Astros, where he was a scout and talent evaluator and worked the draft.
