A message board thread on Pack Pride, North Carolina State's Scout.com site, is reporting that former FSU assistant Chuck Amato has throat cancer. Reportedly, according to the poster who delivered the news, "They have caught it in the early stages and his prognosis is good."
If true, we wish Chuck The Chest a speedy recovery. True, Amato was a pinata for a lot of FSU fan frustration -- especially concerning his recruiting efforts since returning to Tallahassee. But not even the most whacked-out tomahawk chopper would want Amato cursed with this.
