I Am a Chris Lofton Fan

I really can't stand Tennessee, don't really like Bruce Pearl, and really didn't think too highly of Chris Lofton. Until now.

Read this ESPN article.

In an age when too many athletes seek the spotlight when they don't deserve it, make unnecessary excuses, or blame others for their own failures, this is a very refreshing story. Some of you might find it silly that Lofton didn't tell his teammates, his friends, or even some of his family members that he had cancer. I think it's admirable. He didn't complain, didn't make excuses, and didn't sulk. He quietly went about his business, struggled through an unbelievably tough hand, worked his ass off, and eventually beat cancer.

Kudos Mr. Lofton, you have a new fan.
