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

Default Re: The Greatest Sports Figure From Each State

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!)

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