Jack Palance (1919-2006)

Often mentioned in the obituaries for actor Jack Palance, was that his ticket out of coal-mining country back when he was Vladimir Palahnuik was a football scholarship to the University of North Carolina.

Palance left after two years, according to some reports because he was "disgusted by [the] commercialization of the sport." This was in 1940.
