Corn Flakes: Indispensable Players And The World Cup Is Here!

Eric Francis

Nebraska Cornhuskers most indispensable players - ESPN

Summer is a time in college football where the only news is usually bad news. With that in mind, we're looking at the most indispensable players on each Big Ten team. By indispensable, we don't necessarily mean best. We mean the players who would be hardest to replace between now and the start of the season if they got hurt/suspended/encounter Sharknado. That could be because of their value to the team or because of a lack of depth at their position.

Nebraska's two indispensable players? Kenny Bell and Randy Gregory.

It's impossible to argue with the selection of Gregory. He will be the player that the nation will be paying attention to because it stands that he can become a dominant force on this team this coming season.

Bell - I like that choice. Ameer Abdullah might be the choice for others, but when you look at Imani Cross, Adam Taylor and Terrell Newby in the backfield, Abdullah isn't as indispensable as one might think. That doesn't mean Abdullah isn't a stand out player, and that he isn't important, but that he is simply more replaceable than Bell at this point.
