It would have been nice to see Greg Austin listed at least as honorable mention. He'll always be remembered as one of the toughest Huskers ever along with Tom Novak.
Interesting that Maurice Purify made second team, even though he hasn't played a great deal, although he's made a huge impact.
Surprised to see Andrew Shanle on the list. Personally, I don't think he's played that well. Perhaps that shows what I know, eh?
