TCFA Hall of Fame

What on earth is this Hall of Fame? The TCFA Hall of Fame is where past champions of the TCFA Guest Prognosticator Championship reside. For the past 10 years we here at TCFA have asked you, our readers and friends, to participate in the now legendary TCFA Guest Prognostication Competition. Each week, one of you accepts the challenge of picking six games. Those with the two best records after the season then face each other, on New Year's Day, in the TCFA Bowl.

Each year's winner is showered with gifts and, more importantly, is inducted into the TCFA Hall of Fame. Past inductees Kris McBride, Michigan Bob Seif and Rick Santangelo stand alongside TCFA Hall of Famers such as LaVar (no last name necessary), Drew Brees, Jack Ham and Woody Hayes. The TCFA College Football Contributors Committee has also inducted such luminaries as Beano Cook, Willie Nelson, Chris Fowler and Benjamin Franklin. In that order.
