I wonder who was the best player to wear #76 at CU?
Should have started with No. 80 - could have gone with Jon Embree :thumbsup:
Blame it on my indecision on the timing to start a countdown. Husker fans have been counting down since the loss to Texas last season for sure and I didn't want to have a very long countdown. If it wasn't for basketball, I would have started it sooner.
In 1976, the Buffs shared first place in the Big 8 and finished the season #16 in both polls.
In December of that year, the Pac-8 extended invites to Arizona and Arizona State. USC finished #2 in both polls and UCLA was #15 in both polls just ahead of the Buffs.
I wonder who the best player at nebraska to wear number 224 was.
Absolutely. No question about it.
some roided up walk-on kid from Goofbag, Nebraska who by the virtue of Dr. Tom and all that is holy in Bugeater football went from a 165 lb 8 man football halfback to a 300 lb OL in 3 months.
75 days to go!!!
74 days to go.
Anyone recall who the best player to wear 74 and 75?
Ruben Vaughn #75
Sam Wilder perhaps?
79 Stan Brock
78 Nate Solder
77 Dan Grimm
76 Ariel Solomon
75 Ruben Vaughan
74 Sam Wilder (?)
67 Joe Romig
I think 77 was also the # worn by Brundage (AA DL).
75 - Reuben Vaughn (DT - four-year letter winner; 1975-78)
74 - Bob Sebro (OT/C - three-year letter winner; 1979-81)
Some booster's wife - Carl Pelini goes at least 224, yeah?
73 more days to go!
Besides Ryan Miller, who would the best player to wear 73 be?
Like Ted Miller via Twitter said that have you noticed something about the blog?
You don't fear Lucille nearly enough.
How about the Salerno brothers? Sam lettered from 1953-55; Bob lettered from 1956-59. Both played tackle; both wore No. 73.
I was waiting for you to find this thread. It needs you.
72 more days to go!
In 1972, it was Eddie Crowder's last winning season as the Buffs would go 5-6 a year later and the Bill Mallory saga begins in 1974.
Please do not bump this thread for 72 more days:boring:
Last Big 12 event today, CU vs. Nebraska in tennis:
Caption: "OMG, like I totally should hit this tennis ball."
"Cup balls while griping the shaft of the racket. Like this."
The last Big 12 event today is a reason to celebrate today and I don't mean by joining 10,000 bozos on the lawn to light up a joint at 4:20 p.m. today.
After that is done, I'm sure we can finally start putting up Pac-12 stuff on the CU facilities. I was bummed that we didn't have a Pac-12 logo on the football field for the spring game like Utah did for theirs.
:bump: Best No. 72 ever ... OT Mark Vander Poel, All-Big Eight 1989 and 1990; honorable mention All-American in 1990. :gobuffs:
71 days to go!
1971 was a good year for the Big 8 as NU, OU, and CU finished 1-2-3 in the rankings at the end of the season.
No. 71 - let's go with Victor Rogers. :thumbsup:
Offensive tackle; four-year letterman (1998-2001). First-team All-Big 12 in 2001. Notably gave a rousing halftime speech (along with senior tight end Daniel Graham) during the Oklahoma State game, lifting the Buffs from a 16-7 halftime deficit to a 22-19 victory - http://www.cuatthegame.com/2001/oklahoma-state-33-yard-two-point-conversion/
