Those Hallowed Halls
by Andrew Cohen September 2009

It will next open its doors Nov. 21-22, when the New York State Public High School Athletic Association holds its championships there. Then, yesterday, the College Football Hall of Fame announced it would move from South Bend, Ind., to Atlanta when its lease is up on Dec. 31, 2010.
