Dickerson snubbed again by College HOF

Postby Ikus » Mon Jan 07, 2019 2:46 pm

The new class was announced, and there are some very deserving names: Troy Polamalu, Rocket Ismael, Joe Thomas.

But any Hall that takes Lorenzo White, Vince Young, Darren McFadden, etc. and doesn't have Eric Dickerson is a joke. Did SMU make any effort to promote Dickerson? Our SMU bias aside, there are few players from any school who can claim to be more deserving.

My protest of the College Football Hall of Fame continues until at least one of these two is inducted.

The college football hall of fame also made the Goodyear blimp a member today.

It can't be because of any allegations of cheating considering they freaking let Dennis Erickson in today!

bunch of hypocrites if this is about SMU's cheating in those years...as if half of college football wasn't, and might still be.

I believe the members of the Football Foundation do the voting, which anyone that wants to pay for membership can join. Not a great way to do it, but there you are. To join, it costs $40/year or $1000 for lifetime membership. Check out the website to see more. footballfoundation.org.

Dickerson is being black-balled when I don't even think that Dickerson was a target of a serious NCAA violation finding. SMU was never punished because of the "Trans A&M"*


*I'm fully aware that a decade later the Bishops Report found on-going decades old payroll that included evidence of a list of about 12 players from the early 1980s that I believe included Dickerson's name but that wasn't an NCAA finding and was well past the NCAA statute of limitations
"With a quarter of a tank of gas, we can get everything we need right here in DFW." -SMU Head Coach Chad Morris

When momentum starts rolling downhill in recruiting-WATCH OUT.

And clearly the College Football Hall of Fame has very high character standards because *checks notes* Joe Paterno is in.
