    I need to hit the road for work this morning, sorry to preempt your post, @rrthusker.

    I'll pick one on each side of the ball...

    - IB Ken Clark (RIP). His duel with Barry Sanders in 1988 was spectacular.

    - Poor Safety turned All-American Linebacker and Current Big 12 Executive Associate Commissioner for Football Ed Stewart.

    Honorable Mention...
    - IB Brandon Jackson. The start of a new-breed, one-cut RB for NU.
    - IB Imani Cross. He was a bruiser who developed into more over his career, even though his yards per carry steadily dropped.

    Favorite #32 Moment...
    - K Dale Endorf's performance against Colorado in 2002 in place of Josh Brown. Player of the Game for NU that day. There are clips of Josh Brown and Frank Solich elated on the sideline over his kicks.

    I would give the nod to Stewart, though Jackson and Clark were outstanding RBs. Going back a ways, Adrian Fiala was also a notable player who wore #32.

    And even farther back, I really liked Woody Cox.
    And seriously, no one has yet mentioned Isaiah Moses Hipp!!??

    Tough call between Ed Stewart and I.M. Hipp. What do you guys think?

    Sorry, did not see you had started the thread.

    Let’s not forget the late Adrain Fiala.

    Ed Stewart on Defense and I.M Hipp on offense..

    Ken Clark is 7th all time on RB list at Nebraska. Great runningback. He's got my vote.

    He is 8th all time Calvin Jones is 7th and I.M Hipp is 10th..

    Hipp was really the first famous walk- on that made it big he was 1st team all Big 8 in 1977..

    Ken Clark

    #8 All Time Career rusher with 3037 yards...would be much higher if he played in as many games as some of the guys above him on the list.

    I was lucky enough to attend the Ken Clark vs Barry Sanders game...unreal!! He also had a huge run in the game in Norman to help lead the Huskers victory against the Sooners. Check out the run 2 minutes into the OU game video. He unloads on a defender.

    I have the 2005 Texas game going in the background this morning. At about 46:40 in the link, we line Brandon Jackson up at fullback in front of Cody Glenn and he successfully runs a wheel route:


    That 2006 WCO was really humming.

    Happy I could help!

    That and the Le Kevin Smith fumble against Texas Tech in 2005 were absolute gut punches.
