  1. Do these names merit consideration: Chief Kickingstallionsims, Boubacar Aw, Baskerville Holmes (basketball), Barkevious Mingo (football) and the eternal Bryan Suksomwong (UCLA Marching Band member)

    1. Chief was eliminated on Ballot 4 and Baskerville is on the current ballot. Everyone else may make a future list!
