South Bend to lose the Hall

The College Football Hall of Fame which boasts more than 20 exhibits is leaving South Bend, Indiana

It looks like an historical landmark is going to pull away from South Bend, Indiana in the coming years. The Dallas Morning News is reporting that the College Football Hall of Fame is leaving the graces of South Bend and will find a new home in downtown Atlanta.

Originally, it was anticipated that the Hall would attract at least 200,000 visitors per year. However, only a disappointing 65,000 would actually visit. The move to Atlanta (SEC  and ACC country) coupled with the SEC’s recent success should bolster new interest and draw more fans to the college football shrine.

Atlanta and Dallas were both fighting for the rights to be the new home. Big names such as Dallas’ backer Roger Staubach fought zealously to have the Hall come to Texas. However, Dallas ultimately lost to Atlanta because of Atlanta’s rich attractive downtown and tourist area.

It’s a shame the Hall is leaving the surroundings of such a storied football program in Notre Dame. The Matador just hopes there isn’t an oversized Coca-Cola logo plastered on the walls of the Hall.

    Retailing for under $100, London Fog handbags mimic the quality and craftsmanship of the brand’s coats and jackets; high quality and enduring. One of the more popular designs, the “Knightsbridge” handbag, is remarkably similar to the luxury French designer, Celine “Phantom” handbag.

    An fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you simply should write a lot more on this topic, it might not be a taboo topic but typically people today are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    This sucks, there is no football tradition in Atlanta.

    I’m not an ND fan, but I’m still sorry to hear this. I had the chance to visit the pro and college HOF’s a few years back, and the museum in South Bend was worlds more fun than its counterpart in Canton.
