This has to be great news for CP. She had to be upset at not winning the Kentucky Derby.

Why is not news worthy just because it is not about murder, politics, etc? Candace is a Knoxville celebrity..we like knowing that she is happy and in love. Congratulations Candace!

Congratulation Candice I wish you all the best and thanks for all you done for the Lady Vols. Much Love and success in all you do. And yes this is worth putting in the news, it's to much negative new. It's like a breath of fresh air.

Congrats to both Sheldon and Candance. They are both great role models and work so hard. It is nice that they will have someone who understands the amount of effort each puts forth to be such outstanding atheletes. Having a daugher just gradutating from Duke and being a UT fan and grad, I have had the privilege to watch both play with all of their hearts. I wish them the very best that life has to offer.

After she was in People magazine and Candace started getting so much attention I figure Sheldon thought he better snatch her up quick before she realized she could do so much better. She is going to have money one day so she doesn't need that from a man.

Anybody else think he looks like a bulldog?

And people actually care about this? I don't believe this can be considered news worthy at all. Typical UToxville news reporting.
No kidding! Yahoo, it's great that she's happy, but how many OTHER Knoxville women just got engaged & are happy (and do more for the community than play VOLS basketball)??

Breath of fresh air from all the murders, etc., SURE, but news-worthy, NO IT IS NOT....

I guess next we're going to see her wedding on the 6pm news?? UNBELIEVABLE!!

"A Knoxville Celebrity"?? Did you just say that? It may be a surprise to you, but not ALL of us live & die UT football & Lady Vols basketball. In fact, I've never even heard her name until now, so NO, this is NOT news worthy.

Peyton Manning, now HE is news worthy, but Candace whatever her name is?? NOT-SO-MUCH!

yes! it is newsworthy! How wonderful to hear about two successful athletes who are,also, outstanding students and citizens! I love the fact that you post good news about athletes, instead of all the negatives, with which a "few" bad apples seem to tarnish the accomplishments of the, overwhelmingly, upstanding and hard-working majority of student athletes! Yea Candace and Sheldon!!

You must be a very unhappy person, to put such ugly comments in print about two nice, young people, who are probably, ecstatic about life right now. Shame on you!

I was actually complimenting Candace. You must be a very unintelligent person to have not figured that out. The bulldog comment was simply stating an opinion of his resemblance. A lot of people think bulldogs are cute.

Shouldn't you KNOW that they are loving life right now? I mean you know them so well by calling them nice people. They could torture animals for all we know behind closed doors.

Damn, you read my mind. When she turns, say 29, and if they're still married she'll realize the very same point. I don't mean to be superficial but CP is fine and definantly could much better if the looks or your mate should be compatible with yours.

Wow...Say it aint so. Compatability is one of the main barometers of the potential for a successful relationship. If the compatability of looks is part of the equation they will be divorced within a year. CP is fine as hell. Sheldon is butt ugly!!!

She'd never marry him if she saw the parade of white women chasing those NBA buses. Besides that's Asumnu's woman.
