Bo over Hammerin' Hank? Nope! ;)

In all seriousness, it would be a better argument if Bo's career wasn't cut short by injury.

Seriously, Spurrier should have been Tennessee's. He hasn't won three gold medals but then again she never challenged him either

:0 )

deion and bo both have arguments. this says greatest sports figure. greatest sports figure takes into account the off the field side as well. Bo's baseball and football and his Nike marketing is pretty great but Hank Aaron is Hank Aaron. Prime time stands out in Florida for sure

Hank is the best sports figure. Bo was the best athlete. Bo is be one of the greatest athletes of all time.

Saw the repeat of the 30 for 30 about him last night. If he could have stayed await from that injury, no telling what he could have accomplished. May have been in the Hall of Fame for both sports.

So I guess there's no argument against Frazier for y'all? I'm thinking Lombardi as "best sports figure" for NJ (fugeddaboudit!)

Lombardi was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.

At first I didn't see Babe Ruth on Maryland and was about to declare this map null and void lol.

Don't see how that would affect the map too much. Any changes you'd make if you were to update this?

Bear Bryant was born in Arkansas and finished high school there also.
