Derrie Nelson just for the meanness factor. When he walked into the Brass Rail, full strut and scowl, it was like the Red Sea parting -- everybody backed up and got out of his way so that he wouldn't crush us just on principle. And he gets bonus points for being Bob Cerv's nephew.These were the first two I thought of as well. I think Derrie Nelson won a Big 8 Defensive POY award, in an era when OU tended to dominate those honors. Not bad for a one-time walk-on.
And then you think of the Coca-Cola bowl and smile, right?The first thing I think of when I hear 92 and Huskers is the birth of Tommie Frazier in a Husker uniform
Then I think of how we blew out top ten teams in back to back weeks.
but then I remember Ty Stewart. Ugh
That was like 2 or 3 different seasons in one.And then you think of the Coca-Cola bowl and smile, right?
What a strange season.
