    It is very close in my mind. Taylor was the fastest ever to run and play. Johnny was wonderful too. Johnny never hot hurt bad, Taylor did, hence my caveat.

    extremely ironic coming from the guy who posts the same 3 things over and over while acting like everyone's witness to some grand epiphany.

    well John, I recognize that people who copy are flattering the original, but you should really find your own skit.. do something original for a change.

    "Elite" Qbs and development? How about talent evaluation.

    Luke McCaffrey was rated lower than any of the players on Pelini's list, but played more games at QB (4) in his true freshman season than the number of passes Carnes, Turner, and Starling combined to throw in their college careers (3). That's not a development issue, that's an evaluation issue (and yes, knowing whether or not the guy projects to be a top 5 pick in the MLB Draft is part of the evaluation process).

    I fully agree sir. When healthy he ran past the opponents at warp 7.

    If he didnt get hurt against misery in his freshman year he would have been a heisman finalist.

    Bo would still be here. One of the biggest what ifs for Nebraska football in the last 15 years. He was the definition of electric.

    Right behind 8f the Big 12 hadn't cheated and put a second back on the clock.

    We could have been back to back conference champions.

    And wouid probably still be in the Big 12.

    But how does he stop Wisconsin from rushing for 700 yards against us? And what happens after he leaves? Defenses figured him out, but he was probably the fastest QB I have ever seen along with Vick.

    He was probably faster than Vick on a straight line, but Vick had moves while Martinez didn't really have that.

    He was hurt for his entire career after Missouri. He couldn’t pass a physical to play in the league. I would say that played more of a factor than defenses “figuring him out”

    TM was quick. Everybody remembers that KState game on national television. We were all pumping our fists in the living room on that night. But yes, opponents figured out how to contain him. Ol' arm punt couldn't juke and avoided contact. The opposite of Eric Crouch.

    It still boggles my mind that people seem to think TM wasn't that good as a QB or was "figured out" look at his stats...he has one stat that sucks...fumbles.

    All his stats got better each year (until senior year when he got hurt), everything went up. All he did was get better each season.

    You were very kind to the creature. I'm sure that Bo appreciates it.

    This. We might have recruited 4 stars but they certainly weren't elite. I seem to remember we weren't exactly battling it out with bama and Oklahoma for these guys either. Wasn't carnes down to USF and western Kentucky? Jamal Turner, great athlete, but didn't we just give him a shot at qb to get him on the team? Did anyone else really recruit him as a qb? Starling wasn't coming so that didn't matter. On and on.

    The program was in a better place at the end of the Callahan years than at the end if the Riley years. There was NFL talent in the system for Bo to work with. Bo was better than Riley, but was his own worst enemy with his arrogance. Every time NU played a team with equal or more talent they got blasted.

    I think it's also true that the program was in a better place at the end of the Callahan years that at the end of the Pelini years. Pelini left the cupboard pretty bare.

    Well, for me anyways.....9 or 10 wins is far, far better than 4 or 5 wins.

    I will have to disagree with folks that are saying T. Martinez was the faster Husker ever. (40) He was very explosive in the first 20-30 yards and can be included in the conversation but to me was at top speed at that point. Personally I think I would have to go with Fabian Washington per the combine result. A. Green, Jay Sims, Derrick Brown were also very fast and the list goes on.. This discussion could be sorted out if they published and kept Husker Power records like in the old days but now these yahoos won't do that? Ticks me off. Martinez is probably higher in the discussion for the 10 yard dash but I think Niles Paul has that yet? (Husker power does show athletic index and 10 yard dash record holders in different sports) The index though is suspect to me as they tweak the formula throughout the years and does the formula really demonstrate true weight to power scores for comparison ranking? I take it with a grain of salt. Better than nothing I suppose. In researching Tmart's times he had a really good pro day but I think that's hand held and his official combine was 4.41?

    Ahman told one of my friends that Jay Sims was the fastest player on the team one time. I tend to believe that.

    Well I’ll agree to disagree on this..

    He has beaten Ohio St, Michigan, Penn St and Iowa not to mention Miami Fl, Georgia and Washington..

    So before you argue with me every game played is a meaningful game especially against some quality teams that I mentioned..

    case closed don’t be so negative of winning quality games..o_O

    And I have my faults with Bo Bo too.

    great. congrats. real program-savers.

    beating 8-4 teams, regardless of name value, means little.

    I don't think so compadre'. Also, I think you're way to sharp to really believe that.
