Derrick Thomas Snubbed For Third-Straight Year By College Football Hall Of Fame

Former Kansas City Chiefs great and NFL Hall of Famer, Derrick Thomas, was denied entry into the College Football Hall of Fame today. It was the third-straight year Thomas has been snubbed.

While playing at Alabama, Thomas set the single-season sack record in 1988. He also holds the record for most career sacks, with 52. Both marks still stand.

Here is a list of players and coaches that made the cut.


  • Ted Brown, North Carolina State running back (1975-78)
  • Tedy Bruschi, Arizona defensive end (1992-95)
  • Ron Dayne, Wisconsin running back (1996-99)
  • Tommie Frazier, Nebraska quarterback (1992-95)
  • Jerry Gray, Texas defensive back (1981-84)
  • Steve Meilinger, Kentucky defensive end (1951-53)
  • Orlando Pace, Ohio State tackle (1994-96)
  • Rod Shoate, Oklahoma linebacker (1972-74)
  • Percy Snow, Michigan State linebacker (1986-89)
  • Vinny Testaverde, Miami quarterback (1985-86)
  • Don Trull, Baylor quarterback (1961-63)
  • Danny Wuerffel, Florida quarterback (1993-96)


  • Wayne Hardin, Navy /Temple
  • Bill McCartney, Colorado

What do you think, Addicts? Should DT already be in the College Football Hall of Fame?
