Husker Football's Mount Rushmore


If you could carve out your own Mount Rushmore of Nebraska Football, who would make the cut?

National Signing Day has come and gone and with no real news in sight until at least mid-April, all you die-hard Nebraska football fans are probably in the initial stages of Football Depression. Yes, it would be awesome if the powers that be decided to alter the college football schedule to be as long as the never-ending MLB slate, but that isn't happening anytime soon.

In the meantime, let's try and take small break from all the Bo talk and the "Stars do/don't matter" conversations to discuss something we all can enjoy: the illustrious history of Nebraska football!

To do so, we decided to conduct an interactive poll of sorts on certain aspects of Nebraska's rich past by asking YOU who would be on Nebraska's various Mount Rushmores.

To get things started, let's go with an easy one. Who would you place on the Mount Rushmore of Nebraska Football? Personally, I would have a Big Red mountain side consisting of Bob Devaney (The Architect), Tom Osborne (The Face), Brook Berringer (The Heart and Soul), and Charlie McBride (The Leader of the Blackshirts). But, what about Touchdown Tommie, The Jet, Mike Rozier, and Eric Crouch? What about Boyd Epley? Ok, maybe this wasn't an easy one, but it should be a fun exercise nonetheless.

Here's what you need to do:

1) Comment with who you think should be on the Mount Rushmore of Nebraska Football? Only four selections, please. Unlike the college football playoff, Mount Rushmore will not be expanded to fit eight faces.

2) If you want to rank others who just missed the cut, put them as money faces ($1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100). $1 would be consider 5th, and $100 would be 10th. (ex: $1 Tommie Frazier, $100 Herbie Husker)

3) Rec commenters picks that you like. In the results post, I'll rank the most popular picks and discuss some of the highlights from the discussion.

Have at it, Corn Nationites.

Editor's Note: Carter Lake Creighton Jays "fans", we are talking about football here. Doug McDermott is not a Husker. Or a football player. I know this can be a little confusing for y'all since it is February and we're talking about Nebraska. Carry on!
