There was news yesterday that heralded Shitt recruit Cam Saddler tore his ACL during a non-contact drill. This is a big blow to a team that expected him contribute as a true freshman.
While some of you may be smiling because Saddler cheered for Pitt during his official visit to Morgantown last year. You should wipe that smile off your damn face. It is never appropriate to cheer or root for a kid to get injured. Remember, karma is a bitch and it could happen to a guy on our team too.
Charley and I had an infamous incident in which we almost caused a fight at Kegler’s after some idiot cheered when Micheal Bush broke his leg against Kentucky in ’06. I for one hope Saddler fully recovers, makes it back for next years Backyard Brawl at Mountaineer Field, and gets his head taken off when catching a pass over the middle. That, would be the appropriate form of payback.
Don’t be an asshole and cheer when opposing players get injured. If you cheer near me when an opposing player gets hut, expect a shoe to the side of the face. (stepping off soapbox)
