    I stand corrected, I'm still bitter from '94.

      Yeah, that team was beastly. You guys smashed my Ducks in the Rose Bowl 38-20. I still remember the first play of the game: 80 yard TD run by Ki-jana Carter. It was quite apparent at that point that we were over matched up front. Just another year where we all got robbed of seeing a true Championship game. That would've been a great matchup too. Might have gone down as one of the all time classics.

        Hey duck,
        While you're here, I have a question for you. I can't remember the year, but it was when Feeley got benched for Harrington. At the time I thought AJ was better, but Harrington had the hype. It turned out Feeley probably ended up being the better NFL QB since Joey had chance after chance, but always failed. Did most fans want Joey to start because of the hype?

            Nah, Joey was probably the better player. He truly was great during his years here. There's really nothing more we could have asked of him. He basically led us to the Championship game in '01, but we got screwed like you guys did in '94. And I'm not so sure I would say Feeley is the better player yet. I don't think Joey was worth the #3 pick, and I think people's view of him would be different had he been a lower pick like Feeley. Feeley is seen as an over achiever in the NFL, and Joey is seen as a bust. Even though Joey has actually been more productive on the field.

            But who knows how great Feeley might have been had he never injured his elbow during his junior year. He was having a hell of a year up to that point. But yeah, nobody ever had a reason to call for him once Joey became the starter, because Joey didn't lose games. We've been spoiled with great QB's here. Feeley never got a chance to establish himself as the man, so it was an easy transition to Harrington. Good question though. I think I just confused myself while answering it. Sorry for the ramble.

              Harrington is the better pro.

              That is correct comahan

                Form what Ive heard Oklahomas Oline during the 70s was pretty damn dominant.

                  How about Oklahoma's line the year they lost to USC in the Orange, didnt everyone on that line get drafted.

                    Yea, that O Line was highly regarded. That's why it was surprising when the USC D-Line was able pressure Jason White into all those picks and sack him all those times.

                      I remember that line having Jammal Brown, Davin Joseph, Vince Carter, and Wes Sims. Who else was on that line?

                      As far as the Husker lines of the mid 90's go they had some better pro prospects than people give them credit for. In '94 they had Zach Weigert, Brendan Stai, Arron Graham and Rob Zatechka. Wiegert and Stai went first day and turned out nice NFL careers and the other two were drafted as well. Combine that with the blocking of FB Cory Schlesinger and it's easy to see why Lawrence Phillips was so dominant in college.

                        Alright, I didn't really remember the specifics. I didn't recall AJ getting hurt, so was that 1999 or 2000 then? You guys are a good bit away from here so it's hard for me to remember 6-7 year old stuff from the west coast. Good luck this year, take down the evil empire.


                        Guru,
                        I don't care. I didn't go researching the stats to back up a casual comment I made in a conversation to someone that wasn't you. How old were you in 1999, 11-12? No need to stick your two cents in.

                            What does how old I was in 1999 have to do with Feeley and Harrington in the NFL? Both players were on the Dolphins and Harrington was average and Feeley was a pile of crap. I really don't care if you care or not, you said something wrong I corrected you.

                            That is correct comahan

                              The 1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers, best running attack and best team in college football history, that O-Line blew people off the ball even when everybody knew the run was coming.

                                Don't downplay LP's talent, that guy was an out of this world talent at RB with a deadly combo of size and speed. Guy was just a terrible person.
