    My picks...

    Academic All-American Punter Mike Stigge
    LB LeRoy Etienne

    Honorable Mention to TE Dusty Keiser for is serviceable replacement of Matt Herian after his gruesome leg injury.

    Two old-timers, Ray Richards of Pawnee City and Charlie Brock of Columbus, wore this number. They were highly decorated All-Americans. Two good punters also -- Mike Stigge and Dan Wingard. I'll go with Wingard just because of his son's hair.
    PS. Speaking of his son, don't think about the fact that he grew up loving NU, and attending camps in Lincoln, or that he is the all-time leading tackler in Mountain West Conference history and was a four-year starter who made the NFL as an undrafted free agent. Nope, just think about the fact that our staff never recruited him.
