The stakes were higher this year, requiring 5 votes. Out of 7 ballots and 1 carryover vote from last year, these three pulled through with exactly 5 votes:
Darrell Campbell: In the words of KankaManiac Andy Wolkiewicz, "best neighbor and snacky cake eater ever." Good luck with the Bears next year, Super Saian.
Fr. John I. Jenkins, CSC: The only person to qualify without a carryover vote from last year. Jenkins is best known for the controversial firing of Ty Willingham and subsequent hiring of Charlie Weis. To paraphrase Jenkins, a Notre Dame football coach has three responsibilities: to raise players with good character, to make sure those players perform academically, and to win football games.
Kanka: Hey, that's me (next to 2004 KankaNation Hall of Famer Coach Joe Yonto). Thanks guys.
The also rans. Look for all of them, especially Dick Lynch, to make a run next year.
