Protesters Damage College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Wisconsin

As protests in Atlanta continued Friday night, many college football fans got a bit of a shock. Last night, the College Football Hall of Fame was damaged and looted during the Atlanta protests.

The College Football Hall of Fame moved from South Bend Indiana to downtown Atlanta back in 2014 into a new $68.5 million dollar facility. And while the pictures show some serious damage it is still unknown as to what is all missing from the hall that is home to countless artifacts and memorabilia of the great sport, we all love.

In a statement, College Football Hall of Fame CEO Kimberly Beaudin said she was “heartbroken” to see the damage. “We support the peaceful protests that honor Floyd’s (George Floyd) memory but unfortunately deteriorated into chaos and disorder,” Beaudin said. “We are heartbroken to see the damage to our city and the Hall of Fame. In the coming days and weeks, we’ll work to pick up the pieces to rebuild the sacred walls that housed memories and honored those who played the game, many of whom fought these same injustices throughout their storied career
