What made the Nebraska Cornhuskers such great football teams, before they recently fell on harder times?
Here is a great story retold by Dwight Perry of The Seattle Times in his Feb. 28, 2005 "Sideline Chatter" under the title Cornhuskers got last laugh on Thomas.
We've heard of movies producing short runs before, but it's tough to top the legacy of 'Like Father, Like Son' in Stillwater, Okla., in 1987.
That's because the Nebraska and Oklahoma State teams both decided to hit the theater to watch the comedy on the eve of their football showdown. 'After the movie,' wrote Matt Humphrey of the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal-Star, 'OSU running back Thurman Thomas got on the NU bus and announced, 'Nobody here can tackle me.'
'Nebraska defensive tackle Neil Smith replied, 'But 11 of us can.' ...
'The next day, Nebraska won 35-0. Thomas, the nation's leading rusher, managed just seven yards on nine carries.' "
