    RUMOR... sad if true.

    The title says it all. Take it for what it is worth. All copied and pasted here:


    Vehicle hits student after confrontation / LJWorld.com
    From Tigerboard (Mizzouís blog)
    A close source, whom we consider quite reliable has informed us that the person responsible for hitting a pedestrian after a confrontation in Lawrence late Saturday night/early Sunday mornings is none other than RB Jocques Crawford. Our source says the pedestrian was a teamate, name unknown. The back of the skull was fractured in 4 places and had severe swelling of his brain. They donít think heíll make it so they are waiting to press charges accordingly. Once again, take this for what it is- a rumor(even as well backed up as we have heard.) We wish the best for the person lying in that hospital bed, no matter what the reason or who hit him. Hope this all turns out to be a rumor, but wanted to let you know what we are hearing.
    From another anonymous yet extremely reliable source close to the team:
    Apparently there was a bit of dust-up between Joc and Ben Lueken. Not sure who else was involved. Apparently Joc said something to Ben, who flew into a fit of rage. Ben was extremely intoxicated and jumped up on the hood of Jocís Tahoe. Joc slammed on the brakes and Ben flew off, cracking his head open. Awaiting word how bad the injury is.
    The team is very upset, for many reasons, about the whole situation."

    That doesn't sound too good.

    Re: RUMOR... sad if true.

    So the vehicle was moving, the guy jumped up on to the moving vehicle, the driver slammed on the brakes, and he flew off? Just not sure whats going on here...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    KU lineman Lueken hospitalized in good condition

    Kansas City Star today, 4/08/09
    LAWRENCE | Ben Lueken, a Kansas reserve offensive lineman who figures prominently in KU’s 2009 plans, was listed in good condition at KU Hospital after a weekend incident on campus involving a vehicle.
    The incident happened around 2 a.m. Sunday in the Jayhawker Towers parking lot. Lueken was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and transferred to KU Hospital.
    According to a source, it’s not clear whether Lueken was struck by a vehicle or fell off a vehicle.
    A suspect was identified and arrested, and then unarrested, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s office.
    Kansas football and athletic department officials would not comment.
    “Until we know all the facts, we can’t comment,” said Kansas associate athletic director Jim Marchiony.
    Lueken is a sophomore offensive lineman from St. Louis. He played in nine games for Kansas last season and is contending for a starting role for next season.

    Re: RUMOR... sad if true.

    So one report has him in good condition and another says he isn't going to make it?

    Re: RUMOR... sad if true.

    That Tahoe could be late model or an old rust bucket. You can purchase an older Tahoe for a song. The engines and transmissions are quite reliable so they translate into cheap transportation. Just the word "Tahoe" should not raise eyebrows.

    He was released from the hospital. This thing is being sat on by KU. Very little being reported.

    Don't they have a history of keeping things "hush,hush" on that campus?

    RB Jacques Crawford has been suspended from the football team indefinitely. No one in Lawrence expects his return anytime in this century.
