Both of our current coaches are controversial, and we've both had a few "Troubles" in the past.
*Wall won 1 of the major awards, but that's like claiming Draymond Green as this year's POY.
If that was directed at my comment that I was surprised by only 3 UK players being in the NBA HOF then I dont follow your thought pattern. The college game does not translate to the next level especially in basketball. But comparing Alabama in football to UK in basketball is like comparing apples to beach balls. There are 22 regular starters on a football team and that doesnt include special team players such as punters and place kickers. To equate Heismans to POY awards makes no sense to me. The Heisman is the Heisman the POY is speculative at best because so many organizations or media outlets have their own voting. And BTW, Alabama's success in the NFL not only dips into the Hall-of-Fame, but also shows up on Super Bowl rings on multiple starting QB's that were Bama alums.
