A year after injury, Ware to leave Louisviile

Kevin Ware To Transfer From Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A year after his gruesome leg injury in the NCAA tournament, Kevin Ware is transferring from Louisville.

Ware became Louisville's rallying point on the way to the national title after he broke his leg in a win over Duke in the finals of the Midwest Regional last season.

He had a rod inserted in the leg and tried to come back this season. But he averaged 1.7 points over nine games and eventually took a medical redshirt.

He wasn't seen with the team over the past several weeks. On Saturday, the day after Louisville's season ended with a loss to Kentucky, the junior from the Atlanta area announced his decision.

"We wish Kevin Godspeed," coach Rick Pitino said.

Maybe married Ricky should have acted like an adult when he had sex with some waitress after hours at a bar.....stupid doesn't begin to describe it. Ruined his reputation is Lexington, for sure.

Don't you love it? Years ago, if we did a job like this, we'd be sooooooooooo fired. I find myself constantly shaking my head.

AOL / The Huffington Post is a propaganda organization. They care nothing about their Internet customers and maintaining good Internet service. AOL is a disaster. They also care nothing about the accuracy or facts concerning their on line articles. This one happens to be about sports, but the Huffington Post acquired AOL to specifically spread propaganda in order to influence public opinion...that is now their MAIN purpose. So don't be surprised if you find inaccuracies about this strory or any othr through AOL. Truth and facts are irrelevant to them.

What can we do, quit AOL? The best remedy would be to never click on any tease. They also have a lot of lefties loaded up to thin out the truly disgusted.
