    Please nominate your players. I would like to see more participation, especially since most users have been at their respective schools for at least a couple seasons.

    Deadline to post is after offseason is completed, but you need to save stats before we advance past player's leaving.


    Couple rules before I get to the criteria
    - Graduating seniors or players entering the draft early are eligible for this year's class
    - Please include as much information as possible on the player, I have provided an outline in the section below
    - I'd also like a picture for each athlete, so make sure to save one before the last game of this season
    - There is no limit on how many players can be nominated from 1 team.
    After we have nominees the league will vote on which player or players should be inducted. It will work on a point scale which will be announced once I know the number of candidates. It is possible for more than one player to get in but it is also possible no players are elected during certain years.
    Outline

    Name - Larry Walters
    Overall rating - 99 (RS SR)
    Position - QB
    Career Stats - 207.0 706-1035 12,850 130 TD/36 INT; 5 rushing TD
    Awards Won - None
    Team Accomplishments - BCS Championship Runner-Up (1); Big 10 Championship (1); Rose Bowl (1)
    Coach's Comment - A four year starter for OSU that broke every school passing record. The stat that might be most impressive is the 52 straight starts. He has started every single game for the Buckeyes since taking over the QB position from Pryor. In his first year as starter he got the Buckeyes to the BCS Championship, and only a failed 2 point conversion kept him from winning that game. His worst season as starter was a 10-3 record last year, and twice the time finished with a 12-1 record while he was starting QB.

    Name - Ross Hand
    Overall rating - 99 (RS SR)
    Position - FS/CB (starting FS for freshman and sophomore seasons, starting CB for junior and senior seasons)
    Career Stats - 188 tackles (140 solo, 48 assisted) 9 tackles for loss 1 sack 18 interceptions 30 pass deflections 5 fumbles forced 2 fumble recoveries 1 defensive TD
    Awards Won - All-American 1st Team (2)
    Team Accomplishments - BCS Championship Runner-Up (1); Big 10 Championship (1); Rose Bowl (1)
    Coach's Comment - Hand is another four year starter for the Buckeyes and he has been a contributor since stepping on the field. As a free safety he was a tackling machine and was always near team lead in that category. After some graduations he offered to switch to CB to help OSU get the most talented players on the field. As a CB he intercepted 7 passes in his junior season and 9 in his senior season. Both seasons as a CB he was honored as an NCAA first team All-American and I think he was a second team All-American as a freshman.

    Name - Chad Bailey
    Overall rating - 93
    Position - Tight End
    Career Stats - 132 receptions 1,791 yards 10 TDs
    Awards Won -None
    Team Accomplishments - BCS National Championship(1), Fiesta Bowl Champions(2), BIG XII Championship(3)
    Coach's Comment - Bailey was a 4yr starter and Texas' go to guy when they needed to move the chains. Bailey proved to be an all purpose everydown tight end as he could block in the power formations and catch the ball in passing situations.

    Name - Josh Holloway
    Overall rating - 98
    Position - Corner Back
    Career Stats - 138 Tot Tackles, 99 Solo, 13 TFL, 11 Ints, 32 Pass Deflections, 1 Forced Fumble, 4 TDs
    Awards Won - None
    Team Accomplishments - BCS National Championship(1), Fiesta Bowl Champions(2), BIG XII Championship(3)
    Coach's Comment - 4 yr starter. Holloway was Texas shut-down corner his entire career. His numbers may appear low because teams simply would not throw to his side or he was covering his receiver like a blanket and teams would have to throw to a different option. With 32 pass deflections shows when teams would try to force a pass in he was right there to knock it down.

    Name - Cedric Heinz

    Overall rating - 96
    Position - Free Safety
    Career Stats - 220 Tot Tackles, 153 Solo, 14 TFL, 1 Sack, 8 Ints, 23 Pass Deflections, 7 Forced Fumble, 3 Fumble Rec, 1 TDs
    Awards Won - None

    Team Accomplishments - BCS National Championship(1), Fiesta Bowl Champions(2), BIG XII Championship(3)
    Coach's Comment - 4 yr starter. Heinz played the run just as well as he played the pass. He allowed Texas to play man and be aggressive with its front 7 with him patroling the deep secondary with 23 pass deflections. He also loved to get his nose dirty supporting the run with 220 tackles and 7 forced fumbles.

    Name - Herb Hill
    Overall rating - 91

    Position - Strong Safety
    Career Stats - 181 Tot Tackles, 126 Solo, 9 TFL, 1 Sack, 7 Ints, 20 Pass Deflections, 4 Fumble Rec, 1 TDs
    Awards Won - None
    Team Accomplishments - BCS National Championship(1), Fiesta Bowl Champions(2), BIG XII Championship(3)
    Co

    ach's Comment - 4 yr starter. Hill was the perfect hybrid safety/linebacker. He could cover in man coverage like a corner and support the run like a linebacker. Hill spent a lot of time up at the line of scrimmage and would lay the wood to you if he got the chance.

    If there is a player on the cut, I may need you to vote. The voting method is based on 12, but in most cases a player is either in or eliminated by the 10th or 11th person
