Terrell Owens held his own Hall of Fame ceremony at alma mater

The six-time Pro Bowl selection declined his invitation to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio this weekend, and instead gave his speech at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. So it should come as no surprise that at Owens' Hall of Fame ceremony at Chattanooga on Saturday, he told all, and didn't hold back a damn thing. And with his heart on his sleeve, he shared all the pain that he overcame in his personal life. Instead, the diva wide receiver had his gold jacket mailed to him and performed his acceptance speech almost 600 miles south of Canton, Ohio at his former college, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Speaking in front of a packed stadium, the 44-year-old went after the sportswriters who he blames for everything that took place. Like most of us, Owens also admired Bryant's unmatched work ethic and undying devotion to his craft.

But since the team's last championship, there have been a few players that stand out as Hall of Fame caliber players. But he also thanked the Pats coach for much more than football, which got a huge smile out of the otherwise surly Belichick. "Whether it is three years or 45 years, you should get what you rightfully earned".

One of the hardest-hitting and most versatile safeties in National Football League history, Dawkins stared at his bust and nodded his approval to the crowd. By holding his own ceremony, Owens heard short speeches from five coaches, including three former position coaches, with James Kirksey and Ray Sherman from the NFL. After the 2004 campaign, Moss was traded to the Oakland Raiders for linebacker Napoleon Harris and two draft picks, including the Raiders first round pick (No. 7 overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft. They were going to mail it to him Saturday.

"Kobe Bryant, thanks for showing me what passion and love for your craft looks like. It speaks volumes to the type of person that he is, even though other people may think other of him".
