    He was very deserving, IMO. I'd say this is the 2nd best punt return over the last 20+ years:

    For the loser now will be later to win. For the times they are a-changin'.

    Agreed. That was on the same level as Johnny's return or even Tommie's Gator-shaking run in the Orange Bowl.

    I thought this award wasn't going to be awarded until after the 2012 season. This seems like a rushed pick and event announcement, no?

    In the original article it explains why they chose one so soon.

    I hope the acceptance speech includes a shout-out to #41 in Volunteer orange, Adam's best blocker on that particular return.

    Electrifying return, but not a lot of great Special Teams play there.

    For the record: The award is coming home to Nebraska next season! AA is going to bring the trophy back where it started.
