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.

- Ted Brown, North Carolina State running back (1975-78)
- Tedy Bruschi, Arizona defensive end (1992-95)
- Ron Dayne, Wisconsin running back (1996-99)
