We wrote for today's paper about Cris Carter and the conundrum facing the Pro Football Hall of Fame voters as they attempt to sift through various wide receivers eligible (or soon-to-be-eligible) for the HOF.
Our question now, though, is this: Who is the best former Minnesota athlete who is NOT in the top Hall of Fame in his sport?
Does Carter top your list? Maybe you prefer Jim Marshall. How about Mick Tingelhoff, as long as we're still talking about the Vikings.
Or maybe you prefer Jack Morris, the St. Paul native who only pitched one year with the Twins but made it a memorable one? A case could even be made for Tony Oliva, who had an incredible eight-year stretch from 1964-71.
Hockey? Basketball? Soccer? Are we missing anyone? Who do you like?
