What should be an exciting time for Tennessee's Jordan McRae, fresh off of week which saw him average 31 points per game against Florida and Georgia, instead turned tragic overnight.

Losing a member of the family is tough, and is even tougher when violence is involved. Hang in there young man. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Congrats to all the posters so far who didn't go overboard with negative assertions about Jordan and his family that NO information given out so far would support in any way. Any violent death is a tragedy; one involving a family member is even more of one.
