You read that correctly folks. Digger Phelps has been formally dianosed with cancer. Here's the scoop from ESPN themselves:
I dislike Digger as much as the next guy but I wouldn't wish cancer on my worst enemy. I'm rooting for him to make a full recovery so we can all dislike and complain about him again. It would also put quite the damper on his stake as the favorite for this year's LCPT, that is if it's not already being named after him. But seriously, get well soon Digger.
