Now that we know we have an even longer stretch of time before the offseason ends...
...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)
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)
Who is the ultimate Nebraska defensive lineman?

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.
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.
