Today's Tennessean had an article looking back at the 25th anniversary of the last University of Tennessee men's basketball team to win the SEC Tournament. They had a "Where Are They Now" listing, and on it was Kevin Nash. Nash was described as "finishing up a successful pro wrestling career" I had almost forgotten he was on that team. He was mainly known for being an underachiever & for his frequent run-in's with Coach Don Devoe. Below is a quote from a 1980 article in a Nashville newspaper when he left the team: "Former Tennessee basketball center Kevin Nash spent three years in the underdog role at Tennessee, three years of boos, three years of run-ins with the coach, trouble in the dorm. He spent three years trying to figure out what was going to go wrong next, sure something would.
It usually did. Nash quickly got the reputation of being big and dumb, a troublemaker, somebody trying to buck the system."
