Birmingham should bid for Hall of Fame

College Football Talk reported that political and civic leaders in Dallas are attempting to lure the College Football Hall of Fame from South Bend, Indiana. The Hall of Fame would be located “in downtown Dallas near the downtown convention center.”

My question is why hasn’t Larry Langford joined the bidding? Birmingham is site of historic Legion Field. Birmingham is the Football Capital of the South. Birmingham is…

OK, so maybe Birmingham doesn’t have anything to offer the Hall of Fame, but if I were a political leader, I would pitch the Hall of Fame and the Domed Stadium together. You could spin a football mecca in the Magic City and get the bonds approved in short order because Alabamians love college football.
