    Aaron Rodgers showed up in Lincoln from Butte CC and played in 2003, 2004? Discuss.

    Well, in 2003, Nebraska got beat up pretty bad in the second half by Missouri, and pretty much trashed by Texas and K-State in those games. Would Rodgers have been enough of a spark to win two of those three games?

    Texas on the road with Vince Young probably not, K-State at home, I don't know, but it certainly would have been closer with a qb like Rodgers. Missouri? Complete collapse after totally dominating the first half, Rodgers may have been able to steer the offense in the right direction to get the win.

    I'd take that defense in 2003 in a hearbeat.

    Only 2009 has been better since.

    2003 - Would Rodgers have gotten the start over the veteran Lord?

    2004 - How many games could Rodgers have withstood BC's quarterback target practice that he called the West Coast Offense?
