College Football Hall Of Fame To Be Bigger Than Expected, Open In Fall 2013

The College Football Hall of Fame was originally scheduled to open in Atlanta in March 2013, but its opening has been bumped back to the fall of that year. Chick-fil-A Bowl president and Atlanta Hall Management CEO and wearer of various other hats Gary Stokan says the delay is due to the facility's plans blooming from a 50,000-square-foot building to a 75,000-footer, which will draw no complaint from us.

Read Stokan's remarks in that link above -- he's pretty pumped about all the high-tech gadgetry the hall will incorporate. There's also a bunch of stuff about money and sponsorships and bonds and stuff, for those of you who care about those things.

And, yes, it will have a Chick-fil-A.

It's also convenient that it's now supposed to open near college football season. Accordingly, Stokan said he wants the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to play in the Chick-fil-A kickoff game at the Georgia Dome in 2013, providing even more local color for the unveiling.
