    Fullback - Andra Fraklin and Bill Olds. Oldies but goodies!

    Wasn't Kinney an IB?

    He'll get nominated for the NFL HOF ... probably won't have enough support to make it.

    He had one hugely critical goal-line fumble against Texas that cost NU the game!

    Loved watching him and Rathman raise havoc in San Francisco.

    By decade and/or coaching staff and side of ball:
    70s: JR on O. Willie Harper on D
    80s: O Rimington, D Broderick Thomas
    90s Osborne: O Tommy. D (tough!) Mike Brown gets nod by a hair over Wistrom
    90s early 2000s Solich: O Raiola, D/ST Groce (Super Demorio super close)
    Callahan: O Zac Taylor (would be T. Nunn if he didn't drop pass against Texas). D C. Grixby
    Pelini: O Ganz. D Suh
    Riley: O Westy. D Kalu

    Some really tough ones to leave off: B. Ruud (you know which one), Johnny Mitchell, Ed Stewart, Ralph Brown, Fonoti, Craver, Minter, C. Polk, J. Foreman, KENNY WALKER, Peter bros., Gdowski, Bullocks bros., Calvin Jones and Derek Brown.

    Fun, but rough exercise with all the great ones.

    Rathman. Franklin. Schlesinger for how he brought the 94 title home. Makovicka.

    Love the Lance Lewis and Omar Soto mentions.

    Wonder how much Andra could have done if he never got hurt in the NFL. Stud.

    This might have been posted already, but I just ran across it. Don’t remember hearing about this play before!

    I'm going to say Dan Schneiss, because that's when this Husker sickness seed took root! Though you gotta love Schles and Rathman.

    Great story Prof. Cory was a year behind me at Columbus High and even then he was a tank.

    Loved the Mackovickas. Have to like anyone that opened the holes for the I-backs to receive the glory. FB was a position of mostly sacrificing the body.
    I was on the CU sideline for Rathman’s game breaking run in 1985. It quickly reminded me why I quit playing after jr high. As he hit full speed, I was thinking “it is someone’s job to get in front of that?”

    I was at NU when Wilkening quit football and remember the surprising reasons. I was at Orange Bowl against LSU where he (almost positive it was him) dropped that fake kick pass while running uncovered down the sideline. Oh well, we won anyway. I’ll never forget hearing crying in the stands as the clock wound down. It was a couple from LSU with tears streaming down their faces.
