Former head coach Lou Holtz was named an inductee into the College Football Hall of Fame on Thursday headling this year’s class along with former UCLA quarterback Troy Aikman.
Holtz, a studio analyst for ESPN’s college football coverage, coached six schools to 249 victories in a career that spanned more than 30 years. He won a national title with Notre Dame in 1988. – AP
Apparently winning a Heisman Trophy is not enough to get inducted into the Hall of Fame as Tim Brown was snubbed again this year. Dave Casper and Jim Seymour were also on the list of finalists but did not make the cut. How Brown isn’t inducted when Don McPherson, the Syracuse quarterback he beat for the Heisman in ’87, was this year is a bit curious.
