Nebraska Football Ultimate Wide Receiver Bracket: Johnny Rodgers is the Champion

He’s all the way home!

First - apologies for not getting this out a couple days ago as promised. My work schedule got crazy and I forgot to check on the poll.

With 79% of the vote, The Jet is your ultimate Nebraska wide receiver! Look for a couple of Rodgers highlights below (and the Game of the Century - the real one). There are also some polls for you - one on which position group to do next (BrewCityHSKR has a QB bracket already set up and I think he also has RBs?) and how often/week to publish these. I wanted enough time to allow voting, so I went with 2X per week, but I think that was too much time in between articles? Your thoughts are welcomed via poll or in the comments.

Again, shout out to BrewCityHSKR for setting this up!

The Champion

Johnny Rodgers – 1972 Heisman Trophy winner, 1970 and 1971 national championship teams, ( Bio)
