Some scary news for LSU fans: Tigers great Billy Cannon has been taken to a local hospital for a stroke.
The Advocate reported that Cannon was transported from the Louisiana State Penitentiary where he is a dentist, to a local Baton Rouge hospital. LSU confirmed later that Cannon, 75, did in fact have a stroke. Although Cannon is apparently alert and resting, he will remain in the hospital overnight.
Cannon won the 1959 Heisman Trophy and his punt return against Ole Miss on Halloween night will forever go down as one of the great moments in LSU football history.
