    Cyclones and the College Football Hall of Fame

    I know there is another thread about the College Football Hall of Fame, but it seems to only discuss Troy Davis. Here's a look at all Cyclones that have either been enshrined or are currently eligible for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame ...

    Cyclones enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame:

    Pop Warner, Head Coach (1895-99)
    Ed Bock, (1936-38)
    Earle Bruce, Head Coach (1973-78)


    Iowa State players currently eligible for induction:

    Troy Davis, RB (1994-96)
    Mike Busch, TE (1986-89)
    Karl Nelson, OL (1979-82)
    Luther Blue, SE (1974-76)
    Matt Blair, LB (1971-73)
    Geary Murdock, OL (1970-72)
    John Van Sicklen, OL (1962-64)
    Tom Vaughn, FB (1962-64)


    Iowa State coaches currently eligible for induction:

    None

    Here is the criteria:

    1. FIRST AND FOREMOST, A PLAYER MUST HAVE RECEIVED MAJOR FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICA RECOGNITION.

    2. A player becomes eligible for consideration by the Foundation's Honors Court 10 years after his last year of intercollegiate football played.

    3. While each nominee's football achievements are of prime consideration, his post-football record as a citizen is also weighed. He must have proven himself worthy as a citizen, carrying the ideals of football forward into his relations with his community and his fellow man with love of his country. Consideration may also be given for academic honors and whether or not the candidate earned a college degree.

    4. In accordance with the 50-year rule,* players must have played their last year of intercollegiate football within the last 50 years. For example, to be eligible for the 2005 ballot, the player must have played his last year in 1955 or thereafter. In addition, players who are playing professionally and coaches who are coaching on the professional level are not eligible until after they retire.

    5. A coach becomes eligible three years after retirement or immediately following retirement provided he is at least 70 years of age. Active coaches become eligible at 75 years of age. He must have been a head coach for a minimum of 10 years and coached at least 100 games with a .600 winning percentage*.

    *Those players that do not comply with the 50-year rule may still be eligible for consideration by the FBS and Divisional Honors Review Committees, which examine unique cases.


    Induction procedures:

    1. Nominations may be made by any dues-paying member of the National Football Foundation, or by athletic directors, coaches, or CoSIDA members representing dues-paying colleges or universities.

    2. Statistics and records, personal recommendations by coaches, fellow players, and opponents are all considered.

    3. The National Football Foundation staff will screen each candidate. After ascertaining that nominations satisfy the requirements, the nominees are submitted to the District Screening Committee (DSC) nearest to which the nominee played. New nominees as well as individuals who appeared on the previous year's ballot will be included in this process.

    4. The top vote getters from the DSC are forwarded to The National Football Foundation staff for inclusion on the ballot. (The ballot also carries names of candidates held over from the previous year. These carryover names are decided upon by the Honors Court).

    5. Any candidate not selected to the current year's Hall of Fame class will automatically go through the voting procedures again the following year. There is no need to nominate the candidate again.

    6. The ballot selection is approved by the Awards Committee of The National Football Foundation.

    7. The ballot of players and coaches is mailed to all dues-paying members for a member vote, of which results are provided to the Honors Court as part of the information for its meeting. The Honors Court selects the Class.


    You can't discuss the topic until you know the rules.

    I heard them say on Sirius radio yesterday that Johnny Majors does not have a .600 overall winning percentage because of those last few years he was at Pitt.

    FiredUpCyclone is correct. Majors does not have a high enough winning percentage, and those last 4 years at Pitt killed his record.

    So... anyone a member? Is TD even getting nominated? If not then a mere $40 will get him a nomination. Actually, join and then submit all of our guys. Problem solved.
