Louisville Wins the Battle, Loses Bush
The Louisville Cardinals rolled past in-state rival Kentucky Sunday night but lost prolific running back Michael Bush in the process. Bush is out for the season with a broken leg and his career at Louisville could be over. He passed on the NFL last year to up his pro stock and help his team make a push for the national title.
Injuries are a part of the game but it really is a shame to see a guy like Bush cut down. I hate it for him because injury is an athlete’s worst nightmare. And I hate it for the fans because well, Bush is an absolute beast.
He could have made a strong push for the Heisman this year, after leading all of Division 1-A in scoring in 2005. But forget about awards and trophies for a second, he is just fun to watch, and so is this Cardinals team.
They still have plenty of weapons to pepper Papa Johns stadium with touchdowns this year, but quarterback Brain Brohm put it best when he said Bush is “irreplaceable.”
Here’s to a speedy and full recovery Mr. Bush.
