Holly Warlick to ride without Caldwell

New LSU coach will participate in May fundraiser

Holly Warlick will be riding alone this weekend to raise money and awareness for breast cancer care and research.

Warlick, Tennessee's associate head coach for women's basketball, will not be joined by her usual sidekick Nikki Caldwell on a motorcycle ride across the state in support of their "The Champions For A Cause" Foundation. Caldwell, a former Lady Vol player and assistant, was introduced Monday as the new women's head coach at LSU.

"I talked to Holly and our Board,'' Caldwell said. "They understand, (given) what's transpiring right now."

Caldwell, an Oak Ridge High School graduate, said that she still intends to join Warlick next month for the main fundraising ride.

This week's event begins Thursday with a meet-and-greet session in Memphis.

The ride starts Friday in Bartlett and will make stops in Jackson, Dickson and Murfreesboro.

On Saturday, the tour will conclude with stops in Manchester, Chattanooga, Lenoir City and Maryville.

Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson, one of the tour's final stops, has donated a Harley Davidson that will be auctioned to benefit the charity.

As a 36-year cancer survivor, who participated in
Tough Enough to Wesr Pink and Relay for Life Fund raisers for cancer research and treatment,
I want to say that while Bicardirum has the right to express an opinion, everybody has the right to be wrong.

As we say in the south, "Bless your heart anyway."

Lighten up. You have some good points but you are so obsessed with being right you are forgetting that all efforts to help in the cancer effort should be applauded. You act like you were turned down for tenure....
