Patrick Edwards says he holds no animosity toward Marshall....his mom on the other hand is considering legal action. She has a case too, though I think the blame should fall on the NCAA and the officials as well as Marshall. Everyone failed in making the environment safe. The Marshall equipment manager or band crew or whoever failed by leaving the cart behind the endzone. The officials failed for not noticing the serious hazard the carts caused by being back there. And The NCAA has failed for years for not having rules in place to keep things like this from happening. As others have said I'm really surprised this hasn't happened more often.
dee probably can speak better to the legal aspect of this story though. Linkage
CHARLESTON, W. Va. — Houston wide receiver Patrick Edwards said Wednesday he holds no animosity toward Marshall, a day after he ran into a service cart and broke his leg in a game against the Thundering Herd.
A Cabell Huntington Hospital spokesman said Edwards was in good condition Wednesday following surgery.
His mother, Patricia Edwards, told Houston television station KRIV she is considering legal action against Marshall.
“I thought I didn’t have a son anymore, the way he flipped,” she said. “I thought we had lost him.”
