    Terrible news. That's way too young.

    I'm beyond shocked. You'd think she would be at low risk.

    There's no recovery from this, is there? Just trying to slow it's progression.

    In most cases. In some it's a dramatic jump. I have a good friend who's mother is also facing it. She's gone from normal to terrible in about 2 years.

    From all he has said, it's largely genetic, or at least that is how it seems.

    Very sad to hear this.

    I admire that she's still trying to coach.

    This is just terrible news. I hate to hear it for anyone, but this is just wild...and she's not even 60, right? There are a lot of Tennessee memories to lose there....let alone the obvious family stuff.

    Like most other things...better treatment now than ever especially if it caught early...but still terribly unpredictable.

    Terrible news. Her announcement video was sad but as expected, her spirits seemed high. Unfortunately, she's likely to go downhill fast. I just hope she's able to maintain her dignity if she chooses to keep coaching.

    She will have a plan for that.

    I think you're right. She's a pro and exudes class. Her exit will be handled appropriately.

    the ladies were a legit threat this year, before all this. i'd have to think this will only make them hungrier.
