Dave Butz, Shane Conlan make College Football HOF

The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame announced Thursday the 2014 College Football Hall of Fame Class, and former Purdue star defensive tackle Dave Butz (1970-72) was one of 14 players honored. Former Penn State linebacker Shane Conlan (1983-86), who starred in Happy Valley before the Nittany Lions entered the Big Ten, also made the cut.

I still remember Dave Butz playing for my Washington Redskins. He was a mountain of a man for the ‘Skins.

Disgraceful that Lorenzo White was passed over yet again.

Once again the Big 10 is claiming guys who never played in the Big 10.
STOP putting pre Big 10 Penn State and Nebraska guys under consideration for Big 10 honors.
They were not ours!

    That point is made in the first paragraph of the story.

Brent, it is disgraceful that the BTN keeps adding non Big 10 guys to awards.
Although I saw it in the story, too many times the BTN keeps offending Big 10 folks by overpassing them for Big 8, Big 12 and independent guys who never contributed to the Big 10.
Tom Osborne, John Cappaletti, Mike Rozier, Todd Blackledge, Jack Ham, Tommie Frazier and N. Suh were NOT Big 10 folks.
