The full class of 2011 College Football Hall of Fame inductees will be unveiled in a Tuesday morning Times Square ceremony, but at least a couple names have made their way public, and I'm sure fans of each will be delighted to see the two forever linked. Ohio St. Buckeyes RB Eddie George and Michigan Wolverines coach Lloyd Carr have both made their way into the Sound Bend, Indiana hall.
Browse the ballot's list of 88 candidates to see which other players and coaches might join George and Carr in the July induction.
George won the 1995 Heisman Trophy and had his No. 27 retired before beginning a successful NFL career, almost all of it spent with the Tennessee Titans organization. Carr joined Michigan's staff as a defensive backs coach in 1980, taking over the head job in 1995 to win the 1997 national title and five Big Ten titles.
During George's four years in Columbus, Carr's team got the better end of the rivalry, going 2-1-1 against the Bucks.
