Wiedmer: UT's Green working for little green

A couple of days ago, Kentucky freshman big man Daniel Orton explained why he was exploring the NBA draft.

"More than anything, it's money," the seasonlong substitute said. "In this world there's only one color that matters, and that's green."

Too bad Orton never met University of Tennessee basketball video coordinator and information specialist Aaron Green.

If he had, he might have learned that at least a few of those associated with college hoops do it for the love of the game, green or no green. Or at least for very little green.

This isn't to say Green wouldn't like a little more green in his bank account these days. It certainly would help him and wife Paige raise their 6-year-old daughter Kannon and 1-year-old son Kutler.
