This week at Track ‘Em Tigers we have been taking nominations for our own Auburn Tigers Football Hall of Fame—class of 2017. We have had some great comments put forth in support of some outstanding nominations. But that’s not surprising since there have been hundreds of Tiger greats that have played on the Plains.

This year’s class will consist of 10 Tigers. Three staff selections have been made from the names provided by our TET members for Tigers who played before 1977. They are Jackie Burkett, Billy Atkins, and “Wild Bill” Cody. To get our other seven selections we prepared a ballot/poll based on the names provided during the nomination process. The poll will close Sunday.

The names receiving the highest number of votes will be included in this year’s class of  Track ‘Em Tigers Football Hall of Fame. So vote for the players you would like to see go into this year’s HOF class. Next week, we will publish a tribute article to the winners. A very brief bio of the candidates appears in the comment section under this article.

Thank you for your help and …

War Eagle!

    Suggestion on pol; it would be easier to vote if you had a line or two about each man in the article.

    How does Stan White get 101% (140 votes when the vote total is 138)?
    The Russians are at it again.

      Checked it out Panda. This is the first time we've had numbers that gave someone more than one hundred percent. Most of the time if the numbers do not total out right, someone voted for less than the total seven allowed not more. Only thing I can guess is what Acid said about some sort of rounding error in the poll widget. Seems to be functioning right now, but we'll continue to monitor it.

    KungFuPanda From Detroit, MI Hilary’s people have a lot of free time on their hands and this would not be the first election they tried to change, I would vote for Stan also!

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      ……I’m guessing Stan’s total is some sort of rounding error in the poll widget? I voted only once, and I did have Stan in the list.

      …..What I did was first check off everybody, then I went back and deleted votes for the ones I felt deserved it less, till I was at seven votes. Some were easy scratches, such as a player who left school early in order to get busted with a trunk-full of weed…. We could have used him, his senior year!

      • ATL_AU_FAN ATL_AU_FAN says:

        This is an issue with WP – The polls, as Acid and AUT state, use a “rounding” algorithm when the requisite number of selections are not made.
        In this case, the poll was designed for seven choices to be made and, at some point, someone, or more than one, did not choose the full seven. When this occurs, the algorithm “assigns” a point total to the highest vote recipient which, in this case, is Stan White, therefore, the end result is over 100%.
        Computers — Go figure…
        BUT, without them I would not have had a career!! 🙂
