    In real time that would be impossible to plan unless Kane is a ninja.

    Re: Mika's Eye Injury Update

    Okay... couple of things. First, Mika is only a freshman, right?... Wow. Kid's going to be good when/if he plays again after his two year mission...

    2nd: Both the elbow to the face and the eye poking looked like they were accidents. Kane's looked a heck of a lot worse, and after watching the replay, what choice did the refs really have. We can argue all we want about how Kane was anticipating the ball coming up and trying to strip it (but apparently thought Mika's face was the ball), but the reality is if you watch the replay, it looks like Kane is a freaking kung fu master taking Mika out. I truly believe it was a complete and unfortunate accident, and you can see Kane trying to pull his fingers back (curled back oddly) even as he does it, but he still freaking poked the guy in the face/eyes without even touching the ball. I can't argue much with the ejection. The replay looks terrible. On the other side, Mika's elbow did in fact look like a basketball move. I think the foul should have been wiped, but not sure if that's allowed or not. I didn't see any ill will/egregious elbows on Mika's part in this case either, just a result of a lot of normal contact, so agreed with the call after the review (other than the foul shot...). At the end of the day, the two incidents don't relate at all IMO just because the video looks so different. I'm 100% on board with Kane's inadvertent eye rake, but still, out of context, and not knowing Kane beyond his previous rep, it looks a lot worse... I'm hoping Kane sends an apology/get well of some sort, despite it being the accident it was.

    As for Ejim, c'mon buddy... Too much. I get it, you're frustrated... But you've gotta do better than/you're too smart for that. Paired with Kane's "eye raking" photo makes this team look bad... If I'm Hoiberg, I actually sit Ejim as punishment for the first half of the next game (though it could be argued that it doesn't really make a point given the next opponent). Kane's "rake" was an accident, but Ejim's incident was a poor decision, and uncharacteristic of him as a person. ISU needs to carry itself better than that... Leave the antics to CF and the Waxman (he needs a bigger jersey or something)... Keep winning, but don't forget to carry yourself as reps of ISU.

    Re: Mika's Eye Injury Update

    I'm glad to hear it was not more serious. I scratched my cornea once, and did some other damage to my eye from a piece of glass. I had to wear a patch over it for a few days, and did not like being out in the sunlight, but after the initial pain it was not too bad. Took forever it seemed for the eye to completely clear up though in appearance.

    He'll look like a tough guy for a while. There next game is Monday against Texas. He probably will be back for that....maybe with a pair of goggles.

    Glad to hear he'll survive.

    Hopefully he'll be able to lead some semblance of a normal life and BYU will honor his scholarship. My thoughts and prayers to him and his family.

    He will wear a patch for a day and be fine. Good news though anyway.

    I agree with this, but it also means it's not Kane's fault which I'd say about 90% of BYU fans would disagree with. If Mika can throw a faultless bloody elbow to the face, Kane can turn around bringing his hands up into a player's eye.

    Either way I hope he is better and doesn't miss games. We've had some violent things this year like Long getting stomped on the ground and I'm sure we'd be mad if our players were injured too.

    One thing for SURE that no BYU fan can admit. It's not a foul on Hogue's bloody face for coming into contact with Mika's saintly elbow...yet that was the call on that play. They got typical home calls and still lost, they need to get over it and accept it.

    Re: Mika's Eye Injury Update

    Glad to hear there is no risk of vision loss. The eye isn't the toughest of organs, so I was worried this would have some long lasting effects. Intent or no intent, it was a bad situation and he's a heck of a player. I was amazed to see he was a freshman with his frame and the polish to his post game.

    The scratched cornea thing happens in basketball, especially to taller players. Kareem Abdul Jabbar eventually started wearing the goggles after it happened a few times to him.

    Sioux City's own Kirk Hinrich has been wearing goggles for about 4 years now.

    Not true. From the other angle you clearly see that the BYU player already on the floor hit him pretty hard in the shin with the back of his head.

    Marcus Fizer wore goggles a few minutes in his first game at ISU. He promised his mom that he would try it because she was worried about his eyes. He couldn't stand them and took them off never to be seen again before the half was even over.
