Switzer Not Mad About Hall of Fame Delay

Former Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer says that he doesn't want to talk about why it took so long for him to be voted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Switzer will be enshrined into the hall on Saturday along with 25 other former college players and coaches, including former Sooner tight end Keith Jackson.

Switzer's record of 157 - 29 - 4 at Oklahoma is a winning percentage of .837, fourth best in Division I-A football history. He became eligible for the hall in 1991, three years after resigning under pressure after OU was placed on NCAA probation.

He wasn't eligible for the hall while coaching the Dallas Cowboys from 1994 to 1997. But the coach says that it's not important why it took so long for voters to select. Switzer says being selected is a great honor, and he's glad it's finally happening.
