RB James Conner for Pitt has Hodgkins Lymphoma. Best of luck to him and his family--I worked with a guy years ago that had it and he was able to fully recover. It's a cliche, but something like that puts your whole life in perspective--maybe sports isn't something to get so crazy about. I know getting older and having a family has sure calmed me down as far as FSU goes--I mentioned it in another thread...I had a chest xray done for a physical about 3 months ago, and they found a "shadow" on one of my lungs. After a lot of hand-wringing and second opinions, I finally had a CT scan just before Thanksgiving, and thankfully (pun fully intended) there was nothing there. It was just a "confluence of shadows" on the xray. Considering my wife has gotten breast cancer twice now, we were due for a break, I guess.
In other news...Mark Richt is the bell of the ball at UM now, Kirby Smart goes to UGA, but South Carolina still doesn't have a head coach, even though it's one of the major college coaching jobs that's been open the longest. The "other" USC sticks with Sarkisian's replacement...I guess we'll see how that goes.
