Frank Solich was never a fullback in the traditional blocking running back we’ve had such as Mackovica or Franklin.Hands down Frank Solich
according to the United States Government the official abbreviation NE is Nebraska. New England and the North East can go.... well you know.Now that I look at the thread title, I’m not sure whether it is the greatest New England FB, the greatest Nebraska (state) fullback, or the greatest FB from the northeast.
Interesting take. By the way Craig def wins as the best teammate of all time. Whatever the team needed he did.
As good as roger Craig was, he has no business on this list. A Nebraska fullback is a blocker first second and third. All of this talk about rushing yards and TD is really missing the mark. Will shields and dean stienkuhler were cornhusker legends but it had little to nothing to do with the 2 carries they combined for. Obviously on a fan board this is a subjective list but mentioning roger Craig and Rex burkhead is a injustice to the many great FB in husker history that did there jobs wonderfully. Sure some rock totting came along with the job, but there is a reason BOTH Tom Osborne and bill walsh moved Craig from the position after roger had success playing it in college and the pro game, as both Craig and the position of fullback could be better utilized with different personal. Is that to say he, or burkhead for that matter couldnt play the position? No, but roger was an I back and Rathman was a FB.
