Jimmy Johnson, R.C. Slocum, Art Monk and Dave Casper were among 24 former players and coaches enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame on Wednesday.

The hall has moved from South Bend, Ind., but the new building in downtown Atlanta is still under construction and scheduled to open in August 2014.

Atlanta was hosting its first enshrinement ceremony in a hotel ballroom adjacent to what will be a 94,256-square foot museum that organizers believe will host 500,000 visitors a year.

Other hall inductees included Charles Alexander, Steve Bartkowski, Jonathan Ogden, Phillip Fulmer and Art Shell.

Big Ten replays

The Big Ten is allowing an unlimited number of replays to be shown on video boards in football stadiums. The conference announced the new replay policy Wednesday.

Previously, stadiums were allowed to show one replay at no less than 75 percent of real-time speed. The new policy allows for multiple replays at any speed.

Senior associate commissioner Mark Rudner said the previous policy was an attempt to “limit the scope and size” of controversial plays.

The subcommittee also recommends that stadiums have wireless Internet access, exclusive content for their video boards and other amenities.

TCU women’s tennis

TCU women’s coach Dave Borelli announced that the Horned Frogs will take on at least 14 opponents this season who finished the 2012-13 season ranked in the top 75.

TCU, which return seven letter winners from last season, including Stefanie Tan who became TCU’s first singles All-American since 2009, will face at least 12 opponents who participated in the NCAA Championships last year and will host the ITA Regionals on Oct. 17-21.

TCU’s schedule includes eight fall tournaments, beginning with the Midland Invitational on Sept. 13-15.

The spring season kicks off Jan. 18 with a match against Syracuse. The spring home home opener is Feb. 15 against No. 32 Memphis. The Frogs begin Big 12 play at home on March 14 against No. 17 Texas, and TCU will host the Big 12 Conference Tournament on April 24-27.
