The Daily Beacon sports desk knows how much Ron Slay has meant to you as a student body over the past four years, but we want you to tell us anyway.
Over the next few weeks, we will accept letters to the 6-foot-8 forward, and we will publish a "Dear Ron" section as soon as the Tennessee basketball season ends.
You can be a freshman getting your first taste of the headband or a senior who has followed his whole boisterous career. Or if you're on the 10-year plan and you remember hearing about Slay's time at Nashville's Pearl-Cohn High School and Oak Hill Academy, let us know.
Send us anything. If we like it, we'll print it.
The deadline for entries is one day after Tennessee's basketball season ends, but you can send entries as early as today.
Please keep all entries under 100 words, and e-mail rockettalk@utk.edu or whattheruck@hotmail.com.
And on a side note, the Beacon sports desk wants you ... to join in the funk.
