College Football Hall coming to Dallas?
A group of area political and civic leaders, as well as football legends such as Roger Staubach and Deion Sanders and oilman T. Boone Pickens, are pursuing relocating the College Football Hall of Fame from South Bend, Ind., to downtown Dallas, the Dallas Morning News reported Wed.
The group says it’s willing to pay for the entire cost of relocating, building and launching the facility, which would be slated for construction next to a planned Dallas Convention Center hotel at Young, Market and Lamar streets.
The College Football Hall of Fame is stocked with former Sooners from center Tom Brahaney, who was inducted last year, to coach Bennie Owen, inducted in 1951. But I doubt many Sooner fans have been to South Bend to see the Hall.
But if the Hall somehow relocated to Dallas, it would probably become a regular stop for Sooner fans, since OU plays in Dallas anywhere from 1-3 times a year.
Because of Dallas’ tradition in college football, and because of the money they’re going to throw at this, I think this is a definite possibility.
