It’s not THE Hall of Fame call, but it’s A Hall of Fame call.
Former Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver will be inducted into the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame in 2016.
He joins Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball coach Bo Ryan in the class and that’s a pretty solid class.

The induction ceremony will be held April 30 in Milwaukee.
We imagine that Driver will soon be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, as well, especially since they got that Brett Favre nonsense out of the way.
Driver is the all-time leading receiver in Packers history, with 1,143 receptions and 10,137 yards.
While we know there are some of you out there who think that makes Driver the greatest receiver in the history of the Packers, we’re all about education.
So that’s why were going to once again, point out the fact that he’s not. You know, we don’t want you walking around saying things that make you look ignorant like a Vikings fan.
That list goes like this.
- Don Hutson
- James Lofton
- Sterling Sharpe
- Donald Driver (maybe)
We’d listen to a case for Sharpe being No. 2 over Lofton, but that’s about it.
Driver’s numbers are about longevity. At no time was he dominant like those other three guys were. Not to mention No. 1 and 2 are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Driver will not be joining that fraternity.
This honor is well-deserved, though.
