SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Former Ohio State linebacker Chris Spielman and former Texas defensive tackle Steve McMichael have told a crowd outside the College Football Hall of Fame that they didn't make it there on their own.
Both said that the key to their success was the players around them, saying other teams could have keyed on them and stopped them if they didn't have help. Twenty-four former players and coaches were being enshrined Saturday.
Notre Dame wide receiver Tim Brown drew a cheer from the crowd when he struck the Heisman Trophy pose after putting on his hall blue blazer. But it was Spielman who drew the biggest cheers, with nearly 100 people watching the event wearing his No. 36 Ohio State jersey.
