    Mo Purify, "always a Cornhusker"

    Received this photo & note from a reader:

    I was at the Iowa Barnstormer game in Des Moines Sat night and Maurice Purify was tearing up the place with one great catch after another. ... He was wearing a Nebraska lumbar spine pad, exposed, during the game. The Hawkeye and Cyclone fans were giving him the business about it but he sure backed it up with stellar play. He is nearly unstoppable in arena football. If they cover close he goes deep, if they give him room he moves the chains. And, they canít tackle him.

    I would be bitter too if had to have spent time as a husker with BC. The BC taint prolly hurt some more than others.

    Any chance he might get another look in the NFL?

    Love it. He is the anti-Nicks. I want to see him get a shot at the NFL but I hope he stays in Arena through into the summer. I have tickets right on the boards when Arizona comes to Spokane to play in June.

    This is good to see as I remember reading or hearing the total opposite during his time in the NFL (as far as Husker pride). Also heard that it wasn't talent that kept him from excelling in that league but rather work ethic.
    Full disclosure: I grew up in an era of Husker football when it was blasphemous for a coach to say he was "spooked" out of calling a run play. Of course, that was when hard-nosed running defined the program.

    It's difficult to establish a strong run game without firm resolve. Daily resolve. In too many instances ó such as when Nebraska calls for passes on third-and-3 in four-down territory ó a lack of commitment is evident.

    I always wanted mo' of Mo. Thought he was under-utilized while he was here.

    This is what I recall of many of the seniors in 2007. Bitterness toward NU fans for being unhappy with a 5-win season.

    Time heals all wounds, and I'm glad he's proud to be a cornhusker. I'm glad he's doing well at Arena ball, and wish him the best.
    Heart. Play with it. Every play.

    Balance >>> winning.

    I really don't care what he said on his way out. If he considers himself a Husker, I consider him a Husker, and I'll celebrate his accomplishments.

    He's more of what a Husker is than Carl Nicks ever will be, IMO.
