The following is a little project I'm helping my friend Tex Noel with. Tex is an accomplished college football stat historian and would appreciate your contributions to this project of his. I'd appreciate them as well, so if you have a moment put on the "homer" cap and send in something about your favorite team or players.
Since 1951, many outstanding players and coaches have been enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame--since 1995, located in South Bend, Indiana.
If you ever get the chance to visit, do so--while walking through its many exhibits and parts of the Hall, your own personal experience into the game's past will be enlightened.
I have been to the Hall three times--including the grand opening in 1995; (other seasons here include 1997-2000) and when it was housed near Cincinnati, in 1978-1979.
The Hall, as stated above, includes only players and coaches, with special sections for outstanding performances...
With that in mind, I am proposing the creation of a "Hall of Fame" for outstanding teams, games and statistical accomplishments and those who were a part of the game in this manner.
Visitors to CollegeFootballResource.com can be an active part in the selection of what teams, games or accomplishments will be enshrined.
There will be nominations and voting for a two-wee period and then the tabulation and release several times before inductions to forever remember these special moments in the game.
Regardless of level of competition (NCAA I-A, I-AA, II or III; NAIA or two-year schools, all teams and accomplishments are eligible to be included.
A list will be made available of each accomplishment and the voting will then take place from August 1-15, 2006 and after the tabulations, those receiving 70.1% of the votes cast will be enshrined. The reasoning for 70.1% is to eliminate ones that have garnered 69.99% making it in.
Several inductions will be held throughout the 2006 college football season and monthly in the offseason--at least for the first year.
Each accomplishment that is enshrined will include background; the percentage of votes received and also listed with the person(s) that nominated the member. It's all in fun, but cast your votes wisely and help preserve this part of the game.
If there are any questions, please email me or CFR.
