    Posthumously, Pat Tillman On College Football Hall Of Fame Ballot...

    (Here's sincere hope that he gets in. )

    Late Pat Tillman On College Hall Ballot
    (Due to the nature of this story, I posted it here. Mods feel free to move it to "Play Ball", yet under the circumstances...)
    Tue Mar 11, 11:07 PM ET

    The late Pat Tillman, a former Arizona State linebacker who gave up a professional football career to join the military, is among 19 players up for election to the College Football Hall of Fame for the first time this year.

    The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame released a ballot Tuesday with 75 players and eight coaches eligible for election to the hall.

    Tillman played linebacker for the Sun Devils from 1994-97 and was one of the best defensive players in the Pac-10 over his final two seasons. He was one of the leaders of the last Arizona State team to play in the Rose Bowl. The Sun Devils lost to Ohio State 20-17 in 1997.

    Tillman went on to play safety for the Arizona Cardinals, but quit football, giving up millions of dollars in salary, and became an Army Ranger.

    He was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004.

    Also among the first-timers in the College Hall of Fame ballot are Kansas quarterback Bobby Douglas (1966-68), Florida linebacker Wilber Marshall (1980-83), Temple running back Paul Palmer (1983-86) and Michigan State linebacker Percy Snow (1986-89).

    Lou Holtz, who coached Notre Dame to a national championship and 249 games with six schools, is the only coach appearing on the ballot for the first time.

    Other notable players up for election include UCLA quarterback Troy Aikman, West Virginia quarterback Major Harris, Ohio State fullback Jim Otis and Notre Dame Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown.

    Voting will be done by the 12,000 National Football Foundation members and those votes will be submitted to the NFF's Honors Court, which selects the Hall of Fame class.

    The class of 2008 will be announced May 1 and inducted Dec. 9 at the NFF awards dinner in New York.

    I hope he gets in, he is a hero was a very noble man for what he did. Some people didn't like that he was getting so much hero worship after he died when average citizens walk away from their family and jobs to go fight for their country and get no publicity for it. I can understand their point. They are all heroes.

    Yes they are. Every single one of them is a hero.

    I was on staff at the school paper at ASU while Pat played, even then we knew he was something special.

    I love watching the encore presentation of ASU's shutout over Nebraska.

    Pat sealed the deal at the end of the fourth quarter.

    I hope he gets in.

    It was kind of funny when I first heard about it being a Van Halen “reunion”
