SOUTH BEND -- Friday was an important deadline between the city and the Hall of Fame.
The familiar sounds from the gridiron and other sights at the College Football Hall of Fame aren't going anywhere anytime soon. The city could have terminated its agreement with the Hall of Fame as a tenant in October.
It's not a touchdown, it's better to think of it as a first down of sorts. Both sides agree the College Football Hall of Fame will stick around until the end of the year.
It's possible the Hall will continue to call South Bend home in 2012, but, Don Inks, South Bend's Redevelopment Director, said we won't know for sure until late Summer.
"The next date is the key date August 1," said Inks. "By that date we need to have some mutual agreement that the College Football Hall of Fame will continue for another year or not.
