LL, a correction.
Univ of Georgia was not undefeated in Walker's sophomore year. Clemson University defeated the Bulldogs that season, en route to an undefeated season for the Tigers and a national championship, which Clemson secured by defeating Nebraska in the Orange Bow.

If it's not too personal, can Herschel talk a little about his finances? Did he make enough in football to be set for life? And what businesses is he involved in now?

Sorry to hear you had so much trouble.

I'm a big Viking fan and was thrilled when you came to the Vikings.

They just didn't know how to use you.

You could have been the greatest running back ever!
