I know a lot of us are coming from other boards and know the big man. I just received word that he is in ICU at Ochsner. I'm being told that he has high white blood cell count. Has anyone else heard anything?
Just received word that it doesn't look good. They only give him a 30% chance of making it through the night! I will keep all posted.
I am having a hard time writing this. We have lost the big man. Please pray for his family!

Prayers sent. Always enjoyed his insight.
Some play for fun....we play for Championships!
Spoke with his mother and he is in the ICU. They are trying to rid his system of white blood cell levels which are too high right now.
Diggs had health concerns when he was younger. Out of respect for him and his family, I will keep that off the board.
Guys say a prayer if you can. He is a fighter and needs our thoughts and the power of prayer right now.

Sad day. He is walking on the golden beach with the lord and savor dawning a purple robe. Prayers sent to his family. Diggs was a good man, coach, and friend.
We will all miss you, diggs. God Bless all you did for the young men you inspired.
This is some of the worst news I have ever gotten.
Prayers go out to the family and loved ones
Horrible news. He was a good guy
Such horrible news. I'm so sad to hear this. I was praying very hard for him. I will continue to pray for his family.
Prayers to the family

I'm in a state of disbelief. RIP Diggs!
Prayers sent to his family... this sucks he seemed like a great Guy really nice on the boards
Truly the worst news I've gotten in a long long time. One of my favorite people I've met in this industry.
I'm at a loss. Damn.
You'll be missed Diggs.
