Alabama’s Derrick Thomas, TCU’s LaDainian Tomlinson and Penn State’s Shane Conlan highlight the College Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2014.

Thomas inexplicably had to wait to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame for years after being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but finally the time has come to honor Thomas among the greats in college football for years to come. Tomlinson remains one of the top players out of TCU’s football program and to many may be the iconic figure representing the Horned Frogs to this day, certainly those of a younger generation. Conlan is one f the legends of Penn State’s Linebacker U lineage and holds the bar for linebackers at Penn State to this day.

Other notable players entering the College Football Hal of Fame include Sterling Sharpe of South Carolina, Tony Boselli of USC and Willie Roaf of Louisiana Tech.

Former coaches Mike Belloti and Jerry Moore are also heading to the hall of fame in Atlanta. Belloti led the Oregon football program during a time that saw the Ducks program build the foundation for years of future success later to be seen in Eugene. Moore was in charge of an Appalachian State program that was a dominant force at the FCS level and coached the Mountaineers to one of the biggest upsets in college football history with a season-opening victory over Michigan.

Some of the notable players not inducted in this year’s class include former Heisman Trophy winners Ricky Williams of Texas and Eric Crouch of Nebraska as well as Brian Bosworth of Oklahoma.

    Hope LT never makes it,but he will. Look at the past few years when drug heads make the HOF. What a shame.

    Shane Conlan goes in the College HOF before Bosworth – what a joke.
