Regarding Harbaugh, given the level of your recruiting, maybe you should tone down the snark on him a wee bit. 

If Harbaugh would tone down his Harbaugh-ness, maybe we would lay off. But we know that's never gonna happen...

Sounds like he will remain on scholarship and be able to work toward his degree. Here's a statement from Pat Narduzzi:

“Each of these young men are very passionate about the game of football and our heart goes out to them,” Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said in a prepared statement. “Although they will not be able to play this fall, each of them will remain an active and important part of our family. They are, and will always be, Panthers. We are going to make sure they continue to benefit from a University of Pittsburgh education and being an important member of our football program.”

Pre-existing cardiac condition? Man. That could be a number of things with varying degrees of severity. Obviously whatever it is, it's enough to make him medically ineligible (for now, perhaps permanently?).

Hope he can still get his degree and if possible, maybe get back on the field in the future. Tough break, for sure.

Tennessee fans are the best. Living down here I have the absolute joy of living among them each and every day. It's a gift that keeps on giving.

The thing I'm very interested in this year is how Tennessee responds when they actually have expectations placed on them. Pretty much everyone is picking them to win the SEC East. They have a lot of pre-season hype, but will it last? Are they 'for real'?

As much crap as their fans talk when their team's not good, I don't know if I can live in a world with Tennessee fans if their team is winning.
