Nebraska Football: Huskers Legend Frazier an Official Immortal

Another Heisman trophy may not sit in Lincoln, but after almost two decades of waiting, an honor just as distinguished has been bestowed upon one of the Huskers' finest.

It's been 18 years since he shrugged off three exhausted Florida Gators. He flowed like a river between tacklers and was as easy to bring down as if he were coated in oil. He won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award when the forward pass was considered Nebraska trickeration by many.

He may not have won the Heisman, but his time is now. No more snubs, no more hand-wringing, wailing or gnashing of teeth.

In a ceremony held earlier today, it was made official: Tommie Frazier is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.

Congratulations, Tommie. No more waiting. Now it's time to gripe about another Huskers' inevitable entry. Get your ballots in.
