Well...crap (updated)

Of all the content that we need to publish, this gets the nod.
Texas junior running back Jamaal Charles, who rushed for 1,619 yards this season, has decided to leave the Longhorns to enter the NFL draft.

If true (the shortness of the article and lack of quotes from JC himself leaves some doubt in our minds), then we wish him nothing but the best. He could have stayed and might have become one of the all-time Texas greats. We'll be interested to see where he falls in the draft. Mack has now lost two juniors to the draft. Vondrell McGee, step right up!

UPDATE 4:46 PM-- Press release from UT is up, read it here. JC has won a title and rushed for 1,500+ yards this season. It's hard to hold it against him for leaving. We're hoping JC leaving opens the door for Darrel Scott to come to Texas.
