Thoughts on Shady

With the basketball team playing as well as it has, Shady's departure while not an afterthought, is certainly sharing some of the spotlight with the hoops team. I think it will hit home more in the Spring and of course, in the Fall when football is getting started up again.

I know that lots has been made of the fact that the running back situation is in good hands next year. But it's still hard to lose an all-world talent like McCoy. He would have been a legitimate Heisman candidate next year and could have really cemented his legacy as a Panther with another great year and could have, in my opinion, had his number retired if he stuck around. I don't think there's a chance that happens now since he only stayed two years.

All in all, it was a fun ride and you can only hope that Pitt lands more players like him.
