    That Ware injury is one of the worst things I've ever seen as a sports fan and I follow gymnastics which has had some HORRIBLE things happen to it's athletes. I just happened to see it when my uncle and cousins were watching the game on the other side of the room. I wish I hadn't looked over there at just the wrong time.

    BTW-I just saw on Twitter that Ware had successful surgery and will remain in the hospital until at least Tuesday. All my best wishes and prayers to him and his family/friends.

    Just saw an HD pic of the injury on imgur (don't ask). The bone was sticking out a good 4-5 inches.

    I think I saw the same picture as you did.

    After seeing it, it was worse than I originally thought. And what I originally thought was that it was the worst injury I had ever seen. The sound was probably brutal. The players reactions tell the whole story.

    We had to tell the young kids to look away when they showed the replay. Really pulling for him to make a full recovery.

    They made the Elite 8, but they beat a 14 seed, 11 seed, and 15 seed to get there. Not exactly murderer's row... The SEC was weak this year, and Florida was a lot more athletic. They had athletes, but they didn't have much inside scoring, and no consistent scorers on the perimeter. When they played an equally athletic team with real scorers, they were lost.

    What a dud for Regional Semifinals. The only game that was actually a contest was the Ohio St. game, and that was nearly a blowout. These games are generally high tension nail biters. Not this year. Just a weird tournament.

    As horrific as the Ware injury looked, I've heard (and believe me, I'm no doctor so I'm completely relying on others here) that he may be better off in the long run than if he had torn up a knee. That assumes there was no major nerve damage that cannot be repaired.

    So what about them early in the year made them look unbeatable if you think they are so awful?

    It's likely nobody on the team will ever do anything in the NBA beyond the D-league, it was a great coaching job by Donovan to get them as far as he did.

    I don't know. When I saw them beat Marquette and Wisconsin in November, they looked sensational. Sure seemed to have plenty of talent back then. Something went wrong.

    That "something" was running into a Michigan team that is finally starting to assert itself, largely due to McGary establishing himself as an all-around -- scoring, rebounding, blocking shots -- threat down low, complimenting the team's perimeter threats, many of which can also create their own shot.

    Sure, like any team in a single elimination tournament, they can flame out quickly. But after dispatching Kansas in dramatic fashion, this team has all the confidence in the world and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the Wolverines emerge victorious next Monday night.

    Let the debate begin as to which L.A school - UCLA or USC -made the better hire.

    But I'll say this...Pat Haden, in a relatively short time, has already proven to be more astute than the previous A.D, Mike "head in sand" Garrett.
