    I'd love you all if you posted Wiki links for each person you nominate (just makes my job easier :p)

    92 nominations so far - after only 1 day. Well done guys =D=

    No! Not Len Bias! Are you trying to make the Celtics fans go crazy?

    Ok, as of now we have 118 nominations.

    So we need at least 10 more to have a good tournament. This probably won't be starting until sometime next week, so no real rush [face_peace]

    As a life-long ACC basketball watcher, I still see the death of Len Bias as the biggest tragedy in sports. Just like every Johnny-Come-Lately, Bias was the "next Jordan" and he's probably the only one who could've come close.

    It does, but you can always nominate more, and I'll (we'll) cull the list appropriately ;)
