    Tougher than yesterday but I will take Jim Pillen.

    Pillen is a good pick, but I have to go with Todd Brown. Walk-on receiver who beat out more highly regarded recruits for playing time, and had an excellent career at NU. Unsung hero of that excruciating 6-0 win at Missouri in '81.

    Rover/PR Kareem Moss. His interception to clinch the 1994 national title will forever be etch in my brain.

    (Granted, it was 4th down and intercepting vs. batting the ball to the ground was moot.)

    Honorable Mention...
    IB Scott Baldwin
    WB Shevin Wiggins
    K Jordan Congdon

    Moments...
    - Bryan Carpenter's 1989 touchdown at Colorado.

    - Current Orthopedic Surgeon and former Husker Safety/CB/Holder Kellen Huston punching a Missouri fan after the 2003 game in Columbia.

    Any video or mention of the Great White Hope is going to get a like from me. One of my favorite Huskers ever.

    Kellen Huston for his forearm shiver!
    Perhaps the best to ever wear #29 was DB Ted Vactor in the 60s. He had a nice NFL career.
