I am really pleased that DT Mayes and Connie Keasling are being honored.

When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this too may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!

Bet I’m not the only one who isn’t impressed with the way we’ve selected these over the years. Too many deserved left out and several “who?” included, with several more who were children longer than they’ve been adults lol. Inducting 20-somethings into our HOF? Waters it down imho.

Their definition of HOF must be different than what I thought it was. We just might have a fan or two in it someday at this rate.

All were at the top of their sport, and all deserving. Yes, some might have been delayed longer. But with the dip in track and field for several years, they may have had fewer to consider of the older vintage. Consider the resume, and not the age.

HOF's are completely flawed to begin with. Otherwise, Pete Rose would be in the HOF. But that's way off into the weeds and a major argument for some.

Here is the Merriam-Webster definition of a “hall of fame”:

1 : a structure housing memorials to famous or illustrious individuals usually chosen by a group of electors
2 : a group of individuals in a particular category (such as a sport) who have been selected as particularly illustrious

Using those definitions I guess placing recent grads in ours isn’t as whacko as it appears to me, just seems odd. A couple of years ago we inducted a 2013 grad I believe.

Just make sure that all HOF inductees excelled in what they contributed to the school. That's all I ask. Otherwise, it all gets watered down. Also, I'm so glad Murray has held restraint on the retiring of numbers. VERY selective. As it should be.

I would like to nominate AJ Patty since he will live in infamy (with us anyway). :thumbup:

And it's been a few months without a reference so there we go.
