Hall of Fame

So was I...still remember the hush, etc...that accompany this type of injury. CPB showed his class all the way through this....I was at the game he got hurt in. Coach Bryant stayed in touch with him after his injury and I'm sure helped him all he could. So sad. RIP Kent.
I read an article about Waldrep once. The author said his office was decorated with Alabama memorabilia, but nothing from TCU.It embarrasses me because I’d been a Tide fan for over 20 years before I knew about this story. What’s sad is I’ve heard Texas fans say that us basically adopting Waldrep that, “Well TCU didn’t have a lot of money to handle that.”
When Chucky Mullins was paralyzed in little ole Mississippi, both Ole Miss AND State passed around buckets at games and raised over a million bucks - in Mississippi for a black orphan mind you during a recession. Texas could have done that if they wanted. They have so much money and what all.
