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

    Bring Jim Tressel to Lincoln!

    Agreed. That was on the same level as Johnny's return or even Tommie's Gator-shaking run in the Orange Bowl.
    5 National Titles. 9 Undefeated Seasons. 50 Bowl Appearances. 43 Conference Championships. 10 Division Titles.

    3 Heisman Winners. 54 Consensus All-Americans. 28 Major Award Winners. 23 College Football Hall of Famers.

    There is No Place Like Nebraska.

    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.
    Greatness is made in empty stadiums, but it’s revealed in full stadiums.

    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.
