I didn't know about the no players from the same school in consecutive years rule.  That's stupid.

If that's the rule don't put them on the ballot.  Very dumb rule.

Well, it's a good thing they didn't let them in - they needed room for Jimmy Johnson and Philip Fulmer. *eyeroll*

Testaverde also left off...same stupid rule.

Frazier, Pace, Derrick Thomas, Bosworth, Testaverde and Ismail all left off. Ridiculous.

How is fulmer a HOF coach?

Only the truely special coaches have a tradition such as the Fulmer Cup named after them.

The only thing I can think of is that he did a lot with a little.  Recruiting guys to play in redneckville, USA is no easy task and he did pretty well with it.  He consistently finished #1 or #2 in the East, and that is no easy task with Florida in there.  I understand Tennessee isn't a traditional powerhouse, but they've been in shambles since he left.

My father and mother in law are Tennessee grads, and while I'm no UT fan, I have to stick up for them here. I'm not sure how you can say Tennessee isn't a 'traditional powerhouse'. They rank in the top 10 in total wins as a program and 2nd overall in total wins in the SEC (behind Alabama). They've been a very consistent program over the years. You are correct though, since Fulmer and then with the Kiffin experiment giving way to Derek Dooley, they've been horrible.

I'm not defending Fulmer, cause I can't stand the guy, but he did win a national title at Tennessee. He won 2 SEC titles and won the East 6 times, was 8-7 in bowl games and his winning percentage is about .750.
