It's up on and it was just talked about it during the draft. Tough for the Cards, who lost Darryl Kile a few years back.

From ESPN (

Tonight's game with Chicago (would have been the national game on ESPN) has been postponed. The Cardinals are supposed to release a statement around 3pm Central today.

For reasons of creative incompetence, this space will be left blank. Advertising opportunities are avaliable though!!! Contact (Number removed due to pending litigation) for details!

Sadly, he wasn't sober at the time of the accident. Police also found marijuana in the vehicle. ESPN's Coverage is here , though it appears to be an AP story. Still a sad loss, but it now becomes a cautionary tale.

University of Kentucky basketball isn't a matter of life and death, it's much more important than that.

Make that marijuana and a glass pipe. Tony LaRussa came out to say that on the two days before the accident, he'd gone out of his way to have heart-to-heart talks with Hancock. So clearly, something bad was going on and he had little control over the demons in his life. Sad. But in a month's time, few casual fans will recall this as Hancock wasn't a star. It's a shame, because stuff like this should serve a purpose to bring attention to others in need of the same help that Hancock was refusing. Ah well.

That system actually makes some sense, seems like it might save a little wear and tear on their young studs' arms.
