So I see that Troy Aikman has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
This is a great example of a guy being honored for what he did after his college career.
Don’t get me wrong, he was good in college, but Aikman never went to the Rose Bowl, never came close to winning a Heisman and was accorded the lofty status of All-Pac-10 honorable mention quarterback as a senior.
In 1988–Aikman’s senior year–the most important quarterbacks nationally were Tony Rice, Major Harris, Rodney Peete and Steve Walsh. None of them are in the Hall of Fame.
