July 4th Week and Nominations for TET’s Auburn Football Hall of Fame

All-American running back, Joe Cribbs, was one of the best to ever play at Running back U.

The celebration of our nation’s independence is a time-honored tradition. It’s a time for fireworks, barbecues, and vacations. And, traditionally, it’s a time for the staff here at Track ‘Em Tigers to take our annual week’s vacation.

We appreciate all of you that make TET a part of your daily lives and wish you a happy and restful holiday weekend. We will be back with our regular postings on Monday, following the July 4th week.

In the interim, we have something we would like for you, our readers, to help us with.

The next few days we will be taking nominations to fill out our ballot for the fifth class of our own Auburn Tigers Football Hall of Fame. TET’s Hall now includes forty-one former Auburn  players and coaches. You can find a list of those names at the end of this article.

The rules for the selection process are:

(1) Nominate only one person from each of the following positions: QB, RB, FB, WR, TE, OL, DL, LB, DB, ST, and Coach. 
(2) We have two classifications for nominations. One representing players from the last 40 years and one representing “old school” Tigers – those who played before 1976.
(3) To be eligible, players and/or inactive coaches should have been out of college for four years. Ten names, nine chosen by our readers, will go into the 2016 class and may come from any period in Auburn history.
(4) Although it would be good for you to have seen the nominee play or coach (at least on television), we recognize that in some cases that would not be possible.

You can tell us in the comment section why you think a player or coach is deserving of the nomination or just list their name. If your guy has already been nominated, you can still nominate himan action that will simply add to the nominee’s weight for placement on the final ballot.

Towards the end of this week, we will publish a list of the top vote getters along with a ballot/poll to decide which nominees will make up the 2015 class of TET’s Auburn Football Hall of Fame.

On behalf of the staff here at Track ‘Em Tigers, thank you in advance for your help. War Eagle, and we wish you all a safe and enjoyable 4h of July.

Editors note: The names of the forty-one current members of TET’s Hall of Fame are listed after the jump.
