Nebraska Ultimate Defensive Line Bracket: The Championship

Glover or Suh? Can I vote for them both?

Now that we know we have an even longer stretch of time before the offseason ends...

/sobs

...we return our attention to one of the more fun pandemic distractions we have going (thanks Brew!)

It is the championship! I doubt many are surprised to see Rich Glover and Ndamukong Suh make it through to the final vote. I really don’t know who I will vote for. Maybe I’ll flip a coin?

Brew used the same formula for the DL seedings as he did for the rush end. Here’s a reminder:

4 points for cuAA, 3 for cAA, 2 for AA, 1 for AC, and I added 1 for winning the Outland (although that didn’t change any seedings, so it was pointless). Ties were broken by draft position and I chose the 15 and 16 seeds among a bunch of 1-pointers. Some really good players didn’t make the list, this might be the deepest position in Nebraska history.

c = consensus
u = unanimous
AA = All-American
AC = All-Conference

1) Rich Glover – (8 pts) Outland, Lombardi, cuAA, AA, 2X AC. Made 22 tackles in the Game of the Century. The most ever in a game for a non-LB. That’s coming up big when it counts! (Huskers.com bio)

v

2) Ndamukong Suh – (7) Outland, cuAA 2X AC. Most dominant season ever for a defensive player. 7 TFL & 4.5 sacks in a conference title game. That’s coming up big when it counts! (Huskers.com bio)

Rich Glover

This one is not just Glover highlights, but is a 20 min recap of 1972 Nebraska vs Alabama in the Orange Bowl for the 1971 National Championship. Glover definitely makes some appearances.

Ndamukong Suh

Thanks to this series, I can again spell Ndamukong without checking with Wikipedia.

It believe there would be riots in the streets if I didn’t include the highlights of the 2009 Big Twelve championship game.
