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."

Alright Brain, you don't like me, and I don't like you. But lets just do this, and I can get back to killing you with beer.

Wait, is this article stating that, perhaps, Kevin Nash was a disruptive force who cared more about himself than the team???
I must admit, I'd have never seen that one coming...

Man, if only he won Mr Basketball in his senior year and not placed second behind Magic Johnson, maybe then his career would have been different.

I was once WOTD, and nobody bothered to tell me?

The two main stories I've heard is the Hep C stuff and that he just had concussion problems and took a year off so that he didn't keep piling on injuries.
