This year’s College Football Hall of Fame Ballot is a who’s who of talented players and coaches. If they were to field to competing squads with those up for elections, there is little doubt who would be tabbed to coach on each side.
For the first time since retiring, coaches Mack Brown and Frank Beamer are up for nomination.
Brown and Beamer sport two of the more illustrious College Football careers in history. Along with a number of other marquee names, they’ll vie for enshrinement and immortality in the Hall of Fame.
Both are certainly worthy.
Mack Brown’s illustrious career spanned parts of four decades with three different schools; most notably Texas. He called a career in 2013 and currently works as an analyst for ESPN. He finished with a 238-117-1 record as a head coach for Tulane, North Carolina, and Texas. His 13-8 bowl record includes a National Championship with the 2005 Texas Longhorns which was quarterbacked by Vince Young.
Beamer is no slouch either. The coach took over the responsibility of coaching the Virgina Tech Hokies in 1987, and would remain there all the way through the end of his career. He went 238-121, including an appearance in the National Championship. Virginia Tech appeared in a bowl game every season under Beamer from 1993 until his retirement in 2015.
Other notable names on the ballot are: Warren Sapp, Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, Eric Dickerson, and Tim Crouch.
