Turner could do it all. He was equally an excellent runner and passer. And he was a great leader. He would have won 2 NCs if not for 2 terrible calls in the 82 Penn State game and a mediocre D in 83.

The best all around. He could throw better than Frazier. His problem was that his defense wasn’t that good and two of the teams top players got bought off.

There's not one in MVP, either, but Tommie has three of those, as well.

Both were great. I enjoyed watch Turner more than I did Tommy.

I have great respect for Turner and what he has done for the Nebraska football program both as a player and as a former coach. With that being said Tommie led NU to 2 National championships. Turner 0

Two NC's, but odd that you didn't include the one who won the Heisman in this discussion.

I'd take Turner Gill everyday of the week and twice on Saturday. I also get that Tommie had much better defensive support than what Turner had. However, in the end Tommie has 2 Natty's.

MVP in three bowl games that determined the National Championship. TF was at his absolute best in the biggest games. To come back and play great against Miami after missing 3 months was amazing.

I love them both. They are the two best QBs in Nebraska history. Frazier gets the nod because of the NCs, though Gill could have won two, also.

I think Turner is so close to Tommie in numbers, but 2 Naty’s is a heck of a tie breaker. Tommy won when Turner didn’t.

We all know it takes great TEAMS to win the titles, and Frazier arguably had better overall teams. But it isn't just that. He was the MVP of three straight title games. No one else has that.

There was no better big-game QB than Frazier... MVP of 3 straight NCG.

I agree. Some years ago, some publication stated that Tommie was the all time best college QB because of leadership & not because of individual stats. Turner was great and really should have had 2 NC

Do you see the Huskers beating the point spread against Oklahoma this weekend?

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

I watched the Tulane game and I think Buffalo is a good team that the D shutdown. Plus I went to school in the 90’s and want us so badly to step up on National tv. We are due!! Skers

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
