Good news for Syracuse's Rob Long

One of the sadder stories in college football last season was the story of Syracuse punter Rob Long. Last fall Long was diagnosed with brain cancer, and had to have a malignant tumor removed from his brain on December 14, and during his post-operation checkup more malignant cells were found in his brain. Which meant that Long would have to undergo more treatment, including six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy.

You never want to hear about anybody having to deal with such a disease, let alone a 22-year old kid. But that's why this tweet from Long on Wednesday morning was so nice to see.

Of course, if Long does get back on the field to play football again, it won't be at Syracuse, but in the NFL. Everyone here at the Eye on College Football blog and CBSSports wishes him well in both his recovery and his bid to get back on the field. We'll be rooting for you, Rob.
