Digger Phelps Diagnosed With Cancer

You read that correctly folks. Digger Phelps has been formally dianosed with cancer. Here's the scoop from ESPN themselves:

Television analyst and former Notre Dame coach Digger Phelps has been diagnosed with bladder cancer, ESPN announced Thursday.

Phelps has had surgery and will start follow-up treatment next week near his home in South Bend, Indiana.

In a statement, Phelps said that "he and his family appreciate your thoughts and prayers as he prepares for the 2013-2014 college basketball season."

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.
