Episode 103: Tommie Frazier’s constant College Football Hall of Fame snub, and Nebraska spring football preview
And previewing Nebraska spring football with Husker Locker
The 2012 College Football Hall of Fame ballot was released by the National Football Foundation today, which leaves us to wonder once more just how long it will take for former Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier to receive his invite to the hall.
Frazier may not have had the best passing numbers by a quarterback, but what he could do with his legs more than made up for it. Take a look at Frazier’s college numbers…
Frazier, in addition to being one of the top offensive players in the early to mid 1990s was the main cog of the 1995 Nebraska team that completed an undefeated season, and claimed a second consecutive national championship.* All Frazier and the Cornhuskers did was win games. So why has he not been voted in yet? Your guess, really, is as good as mine although I’m at a loss for an explanation.
So maybe somebody who has followed Nebraska’s football program for longer than I can shed some light on the debate. Brandon Cavanaugh, of Husker Locker, takes some time to discuss Frazier’s collegiate career, as well as Nebraska’s other two College Football Hall of Fame candidates, former linebacker Trev Alberts and Heisman-winning quarterback Eric Crouch. Once we get through that Hall o Fame discussion, we shift our focus to the Nebraska Cornhuskers of today, first by recapping the past year of transition from the Big 12 to the Big Ten and what we should be paying attention to this spring as Nebraska prepares to open spring practices next week.
Is there any chance Taylor Martinez can reach a new level or has he met his proverbial ceiling?
Can Rex Burkhead continue to be some dominant on offense?
Who will step up on defense for Nebraska this season?
Is there a chance Nebraska can make a run at a Big Ten title in year two of the new conference era?
