    Prime Time's Ticket Not Punched

    When the players and coaches elected to the College Football Hall of Fame were announced this past week, Deion Sanders was noticeably missing from the list.

    This is the second year in a row that the former Nole great has been denied entry into the College Football Hall of Fame. So what gives?

    There is no question that Sanders was one of the most talented athletes to ever play for FSU or in college football. However, Sanders lack of entry may have something to do with g-r-a-d-e-s. Some are speculating that he did not get voted in because he wasn't going to class in his final semester. The voting criteria does say that consideration can be given to any "academic honors and whether or not the candidate earned a college degree.''

    A lot of Nole fans are probably not that upset given Deion's lackluster support for FSU. Many Nole fans were upset when highly touted but troubled Noel Devine went to West Virginia after his mentor and father figure Sanders went out of his way to discourage him from going to FSU.
