"Lastly, thank you again for respecting my privacy."
This is great news, not only for Lucky and his family but for Husker fans. I pointed out comments made earlier in the week by the Omaha World Herald in which they stated he'd never lived up to his enormous expectations. He still has a couple of years to explode - he's a young guy.
I take issue with the Husker Extra article in which it states that Lucky served as a backup for most of 2006. Technically, that's true, but I believe that last year's Husker team showed how a group of good running backs can compliment each other more than having a single superstar. With the size and speed of the players in today's game of football, running backs take a pounding throughout the season, and having guys like Marlon Lucky around can make a good team great. I'm glad he hasn't left us whether it be on the gridiron or with serious health issues and I look forward to seeing Marlon Lucky hit the field once again in the fall. Great things are still ahead of the kid.
