For many years some of the top high school football talent in Texas — a state ripe with football players — have ventured north to South Bend, Indiana, to play football at Notre Dame. Well, now it seems that the state of Texas would like to take something back from South Bend for itself. Specifically, the College Football Hall of Fame.
Dallas mayor Tom Leppert has joined a star-studded group of people including Roger Staubach, Deion Sanders, and T. Boone Pickens in campaigning to have the Hall of Fame relocated to Dallas where Leppert believes that they can bring a lot more to the experience.
Things seem to be rolling Roger Staubach’s way. First, his Navy Midshipmen finally beat Notre Dame for the first time since Roger was under center in Annapolis. Now, the ex-Cowboys QB is about to become $700 million richer.
