Rebuff /n. ri-buhf, ree-buhf/


  1. a blunt or abrupt rejection, as of a person making advances.
  2. a peremptory refusal of a request, offer, etc.; snub.
  3. a check to action or progress.

Called the greatest Chief, and one of the top defenders of all-time, the late Derrick Thomas remains ignored by the College Football Hall of Fame. He was rebuffed again, and left out of the Hall of Fame yet another year. If you needed a reminder of the CFB HoF's illegitimacy, it is this.
