College Football Hall of Fame Nominates Tommie Frazier, Eric Crouch, and Trev Alberts

Why Tommie Frazier isn't already in the college football Hall of Fame is perhaps one of the biggest mysteries today. And it's an absolute injustice and disgrace for the Hall of Fame.

The National Football Foundation has released the 2013 College Football Hall of Fame ballot, and once again, the names of former Huskers Tommie Frazier, Eric Crouch, and Trev Alberts are listed. All three were nominated last season, but it turns out that all three were ineligible to be selected due to an obscure rule that Ivan Maisel uncovered last year:

The Hall (of Fame) has a rule against taking players from the same school in consecutive years.

Since Will Shields was inducted in 2011, no Huskers were apparently eligible to be inducted last year. That's a decision that sparked outrage throughout the college football world, not just in the state of Nebraska.

And it's still a sore point throughout the college football world:

You'd have to think that Frazier is a lock, right? Well, you'd like to think so...except that I thought Frazier was a lock in 2011. They chose Shields instead. Last year was a technicality. What possibly could keep Tommie Frazier out in 2013?

We'll know in May.
