Weird thought at 2:30 in the morning, I admit. But... what Tennessee basketball players have tried their luck on the football field at Tennessee?

I remember when Stanley Asumnu did. And there’s one other one that I remember from the last couple of decades but his name escapes me. Anyone?

Nathan W. Dougherty, 1906-1912, was captain of Tennessee football and basketball. He participated in track.
Bobby Dodd played football 1928-1930. He also won varsity letters in basketball, baseball and ran track.

A name we have been using lately that fits this conversation,, Ron W. I know, I know, he didn't just try he "made it" in most things sports he tried.
