Any old timers out there remember Big Dan Hall. I read the article in the Floyd Co. Times where he states that, "outside influences, over which he had no control cut short his promising career at UK". He also states that, "individuals from his home county, rather than see him prosper at the next level, had worked feverishly to create adverse situations for him".
My question is, who were these " individuals" that created adverse situations for him? Also, what were the "adverse situations" he is talking about? You Youngins out there ask your parents about "Big Dan" & let us know what happened.

I for one remember Big Dan Hall. I am curious to know what these out side influences were. He had a wonderful Father and Mother. I am sure they wanted the best for him. So Dan explain yourself.

I started Dan playing basketball when he was in the 4th grade. His Mom Polly would bring him to the gym and sit patiently while he practiced. Dan was as big then as my 7th grade players, even though he was a little uncoordinated from growing pains. I would love to know who influenced him when he was at UK. It was a terrible thing to do to a great young man and his wonderful mom and dad.

Sometimes people get jealous when another kid gets attention as a sports star, and especially one who plays for the UK Wildcats. We will never know who the people were that led to him transferring to Marshall. I only know that Dan, his Mom, and Dad were outstanding people, and the culprits will never admit to the deed.
