Deadspin HOF Nominee: Ned

When Florida International and The U had their infamous brawl last October, the actions of Miami then-broadcaster Lamar Thomas were funny enough. ("I did say you cant come into our house and try to slap us and not get slapped back. which is true so.") But little did we know about the true hero that would emerge.


Yes, it was Ned's crutches of destruction that inspired us, his historic courage in the face of overwhelming odds serving as a reminder of humanity's true potential for strength and hope. Ned stood for so much, if you can consider a guy with crutches "standing."

But is he a Hall of Famer? Seventy five percent is the threshold for induction. Vote below: Polls will be open until next Monday morning.
