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.

Tommie was the best option Q-back I have ever seen at Nebraska, point blank

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.

This was a tough call. I take Tommy by a hair. Loved Turner Gill as well.

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
