    AP moved a photo of him breaking his leg. I am going back and forth on running it. He was a legit Heisman candidate. What would you do/are you doing?

    I checked the pic online. It isn't gruesome, but you can tell pretty easily why he snapped his leg. It is definitely the biggest story to come out of a game that Louisville won with ease. Run it.

    When Alabama's Tyrone Prothro got hurt, did you run it?
    That was just as gruesome. Use that as your measuring stick.

    It wasn't as bad as the pics of the Alabama receiver last year. I'd run it.

    We did, and that is my justification for running it -- and where we put it. Just wanted to hear what others thought.

    I almost always erro on the side of caution on these things, but I agree with others: I have seen much worse. I'd run it. ESPN yesterday showed Theismann's injury. In slow motion. Now THAT was gruesome.

    Looking at the box score, should he have even been in the game?

    It's kinda nasty, but I'd go with it Too bad, I thought with him, they were the best team in the Big East.

    The box score kind of belied the situation. Kentucky was not that far from getting back in the game at that point; it had come to life in the final minutes of the first half.
     
  12. UK down 31-14 at the time of the injury. first possession of second half. no reason to pull the starters at that point.
