The College HOF ends in South Bend

On Sunday, the doors will close on the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Indiana. The institution is not shutting down; rather it is moving south to Atlanta where it will reopen in 2014. The National Football Foundation is making the move as the crowds (thus revenue) were nowhere what they hoped it would be when it moved it there from Ohio in 1995.

This leaves South Bend with a large downtown facility with no tenant. The College Football Hall has always (and always will be) in the shadow of the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Although the College game has grown substantially in the recent years, it has not translated into the respective Hall of Fame. It remains to be seen whether the move to Georgia will increase attendance. We will soon find out!
