  1. Defensive Special Teamer (Gunner): Insane - Have you ever seen these idiots play football? They run as fast as they possibly can down the field in order to run into an oncoming wedge/defender head on! But, busting up a wedge to allow another player to make the tackle on the returner is very important. This poster probably has some weird and wild ideas, but still get the job done. Eric Martin is just the most recent example of this position, but Brandon Rigoni may be the best. Speedy - Once the ball is in the air, the defensive special teamers need to get to the ball as fast as possible to either make the tackle or down a punt close to the opposing goal-line. There's nothing that frustrates a coach more than giving the other team 20 free yards! We need someone who is a speed poster and has the body control and ability to down the ball inside the 10! Young - Coaches love to use true freshmen on special teams. Normally they don't want their skill players getting hurt on a kick/punt coverage or returning. I think this position should be filled by a "rookie" of HuskerBoard - maybe someone who has only been here for 3 months or less...longer if we can't think of anyone. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: spurs1990 & Hoosker (Gunners last year); GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1, Red Five, ScottyIce, TGHusker, famoustitles, B.B. Hemingway, Cdog923, RedDenver, Dilly Dilly, gobiggergoredder, commando, The Dude, lo country, NM11046, Qmany, huKSer, ladyhawke, The Murphinator (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE MARCH 21
  2. Punt Returner: Fair Catch ability - If the PR knows he's going to get drilled if he tries a runback, he needs to wave the arm, concentrate on the ball, and make the fair catch. This poster should always think about the best way to approach a question and to give the best answer as to not bring on extra attack from others (and a spear tackle from a gunner)! Makes the first guy miss - The most important move for the PR is making that quick sidestep to the left or right to get the first man in to commit to a poor tackle (like Niles Paul's return against Colorado this year). Once this is accomplished, the PR can follow his blocks and use his cutting ability to score the TD. To me, this guy is really a sneaky member! He'll give you enough of a comment to reel you into arguing with him, and then, BAM! You've just missed the point completely, and the poster looks like a fantasy genius with his reply to your opposing viewpoint! Shifty - Can change directions on a dime, makes people miss. Look no further than Johnny Rodgers' electrifying return in the Game of the Century for the ideal of this trait. Rodgers dipped, dived and dashed his way through the heart of the Sooner coverage team en route to maybe the most important TD in Nebraska history. Lightning-quick speed and reaction time, young, smart, able to make an opening for himself where one doesn't exist. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: Edison's Enemy (PR last year); GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1, Red Five, ScottyIce, TGHusker, famoustitles, B.B. Hemingway, Cdog923, RedDenver, Dilly Dilly, gobiggergoredder, commando, The Dude, lo country, NM11046, Qmany, huKSer, ladyhawke, The Murphinator (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE MARCH 21
  3. Kick Returner: RB wanna-be - When no opening is created, a Kick Returner normally tries to plow through the opposing special team members head on to try to gain some extra yards. Therefore, the ideal HuskerBoard KR has Running Back capabilities. You might want to consult the description of RB (not afraid to take hits, consistent, competitive, reliable) in order to best make a nomination/vote. High top speed – Josh Davis was the prototypical KR. He could run straight from his own goal line and reach a very high speed by the time he got to the 20. By this time, the defense has hit the wedge and he could either find the seam to take it to the house or blast through the best hole he could find to get some yardage. A poster who really gets on a roll with their posts and can find that bit of extra info that someone opened up for him would be a great KR. Dangerous - He may not be on the field a lot, but when he is, look out! A threat to take it all the way Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: TonyStalloni (KR last year)GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1, Red Five, ScottyIce, TGHusker, famoustitles, B.B. Hemingway, Cdog923, RedDenver, Dilly Dilly, gobiggergoredder, commando, The Dude, lo country, NM11046, Qmany, huKSer, ladyhawke, The Murphinator (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE MARCH 21
  4. Long Snapper: Versatile - You don't realize how much he is actually on the field. He's on the field when your team is doing well - scoring touchdowns or attempting field goals - and when they aren't doing as well - punting. Some of his snaps are long and some are short but always accurate. Has to be someone that contributes in a lot of ways. Unsung Hero - When he's doing a great job, you sometimes don't even realize he's there. A guy who contributes effectively and often but might not always get the recognition he deserves. Upwardly mobile - Might not get a lot of pub now but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a future. Every NFL team need a long snapper. Might cash in on a nice career by finding a niche and excelling at the next level. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: StPaulHusker (Gunners last year); GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1, Red Five, ScottyIce, TGHusker, famoustitles, B.B. Hemingway, Cdog923, RedDenver, Dilly Dilly, gobiggergoredder, commando, The Dude, lo country, NM11046, Qmany, huKSer, ladyhawke, The Murphinator (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE MARCH 21
  5. Punter: Big Leg - This guy booms the ball down the field (usually 60 yards - 45 yard punts plus their 15 yard dropback!) to give the other team bad field position for their offensive series. Following through the ball and a high leg finish are their trademarks! This member's posts go "a long way" to making his side of the argument better. Unsung Hero - The punter has a specific job, and he does it to the best of his ability. He doesn't normally get a chance to put points on the board, so some fans and players might forget about him. But when he pins the other team by their goal line, it's a big positive for the club! Maybe this guy doesn't get a whole lot of kudos around HuskerBoard, but he can be just as important as an offensive player or a regular poster. Limited appearance - The punter is only needed on 4th downs, so they normally only play 5 - 10 downs a game. I would therefore assume the best choice for HuskerBoard punter is one who isn't a super-prolific poster and is only used when it's necessary! Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: BlitzFirst (P last year); GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1, Red Five, ScottyIce, TGHusker, famoustitles, B.B. Hemingway, Cdog923, RedDenver, Dilly Dilly, gobiggergoredder, commando, The Dude, lo country, NM11046 & Qmany (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE MARCH 14
  6. Kicker: Consistency - This is a mentally draining position. The kicker has to be able to keep his head down, keep his eyes on the ball, and concentrate. This will lead to repeated precision in kicking field goals. This poster should contribute constantly and be focused intently on the main idea of any question or comment. Clutch - Since he's not on the field all the time, when the kicker is called upon to do his job, it needs to be done expertly. The entire game can ride on the leg of this (normally) little guy. Maybe this position shouldn't be filled by a "shock and awe" poster, but more by someone who only posts when he feels it necessary and when his idea will put the point "through the uprights!" Real Alex Henery type material! Strong Leg - Most times the placekicker will also be the kickoff kicker. He has to try to boot that ball off a 1-inch tee 70+ yards in the air and give sufficient hang time as to let his team get down to tackle the returner. Of course, he also has to be able to boot 50+ yard field goals into the wind/rain/snow to give his team those valuable 3 points! So, this guy needs to have powerful opinions backed up with hard facts. Also, if this poster's getting driven into the ground with his opinion, he has to trudge through and explain himself well in order to score! Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1, Red Five, ScottyIce, TGHusker, famoustitles, B.B. Hemingway, Cdog923, RedDenver, Dilly Dilly, gobiggergoredder, commando, The Dude, lo country, NM11046 & Qmany (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE MARCH 14
  7. Full Back: Hard-Nosed - When this guy runs the ball, it's going to be right through the line! If you need a first down, he's going to pound the ball fast and in your face. This poster tells it like it is and doesn't hold back any emotion. Blocker - The FB can be the guy who springs the last hole for the RB or could stand up an oncoming LB in his tracks. Any time a poster needs a little extra info to make his point, this guy is right there to help him out! As with other blockers, this poster might not get the flashy TV time like the QB, RB, and WR do. Sure Hands - Primarily involved on 3rd down, you have to watch for this guy's late screening ability. Not only can he get that last yard, but the FB can stop on a five yard route and bang his way to the first down or even a TD! So ideally, the person most befitting of FB might not be a "dedicated" poster, but when they are here, they make good on their appearance. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1, Red Five, ScottyIce, TGHusker, famoustitles, B.B. Hemingway, Cdog923, RedDenver, Dilly Dilly, gobiggergoredder, commando, The Dude, lo country, NM11046 & Qmany (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE MARCH 14
  8. Inside Linebacker: Defensive Leader - The LB sets up the defense in the huddle and keeps everyone abreast of how an offense is shifting or motioning. This poster is a well-respected member that keeps all others in line with his comments, while at the same time informs everyone of player news and other happenings in the NFL. Gap Filler - When a play is run and holes are made for the opposing RB, the LB fills the running lane and stuffs the RB from breaking free or stops him in the backfield completely! Our LB's are guys who keep threads interesting by adding their own insight and can stop a thread from running amok with useless info. Blitzer - When the rush is on, you can expect the LB's to be coming fast and furious through the line and get to the QB with blazing speed. When a breaking story hits, these guys rush to HuskerBoard to inform and add good content to the discussion. Team Pleayer - Holds his ground and knows what he's doing is important to the outcome, even if he doesnt get much recognition for what he does Alertness - Aware of the situations and reacts properly. Hard-Hitter - Relentless at the opposition. When he sees something being done wrong, he will take care of it, no questions asked. Not afraid to belt a receiver going across the middle, but isn't the kind of player to make unwarranted cheap shots. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: Decked, TAKODA & The Maudfather (LBs last year); GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1 & Red Five (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE FEBRUARY 21
  9. Outside Linebacker: Defensive Leader - The LB sets up the defense in the huddle and keeps everyone abreast of how an offense is shifting or motioning. This poster is a well-respected member that keeps all others in line with his comments, while at the same time informs everyone of player news and other happenings in the NFL. Plays in Space - Must be able to play a variety of roles. Run support, pass coverage, rushing the passer. These guys are expected to do a lot and deliver on that expectation. They can bring new information, offer in-depth analysis and put a quick stop to arguments that don't measure up. Blitzer - When the rush is on, you can expect the LB's to be coming fast and furious through the line and get to the QB with blazing speed. When a breaking story hits, these guys rush to HuskerBoard to inform and add good content to the discussion. Team Pleayer - Holds his ground and knows what he's doing is important to the outcome, even if he doesnt get much recognition for what he does Alertness - Aware of the situations and reacts properly. Hard-Hitter - Relentless at the opposition. When he sees something being done wrong, he will take care of it, no questions asked. Not afraid to belt a receiver going across the middle, but isn't the kind of player to make unwarranted cheap shots. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: Decked, TAKODA & The Maudfather (LBs last year); GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster, seaofred92, In the Deed the Glory, VectorVictor, dudeguyy, Stumpy1 & Red Five (already elected this year) NOMINATIONS CLOSE FEBRUARY 21
  10. Tight End: Durability - Not one to let the time of year or the game influence his play. Just as strong with the posts in March as in October. Knows what's needed - That ability to look around, know where the first down marker is, sit in coverage and convert. Nothing flashy but keeps the posts moving along. Safety valve - Knows that he is often the check-down receiver or the guy the QB looks for in a blitz package. A Mike McNeil type who establishes a reputation in forums and it's assumed he'll fill the role. Downfield blocker - Can move faster than lineman, is usually bigger than a blocking back, and so helps the really big running plays by sealing the corner or flattening a member of the opposing secondary. Versatility with what's said on occasion. Good "Liar" - The TE can act like he's blocking for the run but then quickly releases to become a pass catcher - especially on the fake dive/throw to the TE play at the goal line. That's one of my favorite plays! So, this guy might not always know exactly what he's talking about, but he knows enough to still score points with the members of HuskerBoard. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: RedRedJarvisRedwine & ColoradoHusk (TEs last year), GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster & seaofred92 (already elected) NOMINATIONS CLOSE FEBRUARY 14
  11. Wide Receiver: Fast - This guy has blazing speed and can burn any cornerback that stands in his way. Replies to messages and questions come from this poster at an alarming rate! Able to outrun any Georgia DB for a 99-yard TD when the team's backs are against the wall. Good Hands - When a pass is thrown his way, he always catches the pass where the defenders can't knock it away. Very rarely drops the ball when his vision isn't impaired. So, this poster backs up his content with documented info and normally answers the question very well. If you need someone in that end zone to clutch the Hail Mary, this is your guy. Route Runner - Slants, posts, and hook routes are this player's forte. Using these routes, this poster always finds the soft spot of a zone or gets good separation from tight coverage. This guy has a different "slant" on many topics, "posts" a lot of interesting information, and "hooks" you with his witticism and knowledge. Wily/Crafty - A student of the game. Recognizes patterns and coverage (knows the topics he's commenting on and the other people in the particular debate). Tends to use his skill to get away with things, isn't afraid to fight with the defense. A Maurice Purify type. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux, Hedley Lamarr, teachercd, BigRedBuster & seaofred92 (already elected) NOMINATIONS CLOSE FEBRUARY 14
  12. Defensive Tackle: Two words: Ndamukong Suh – The quintessential example of a legendary DT. The DT is a huge guy that makes it impossible for you to run straight up the middle. They have the toughness to fight through double teams and get in the gap to stop the RB. Our DT should present his big ideas to a topic and have them mean so much that an argument or question stops at that point. Quickness - This may be an overused item, but it's still important at the DT spot. If he can get through the line, he has a straight path to the QB! The faster he gets there, the better - this can create poor decisions and bad throws by the passer. HuskerBoard DT's should react fast to breaking news! Shifting ability - If the Huskers decide to go into a 3-4, a DT will become a nose tackle and line up over the center. If he can take on both running gaps and jam the inside, he allows the ILB's to make plays. The perfect DT takes on many tough issues in many forums to allow other posters the ability to answer the obvious questions (the easy stop as it were)! Relentless - This guy can really dig his heels in and eventually overpower the lesser player in front of him. Creates a surge towards his given target and then makes the tackle from any given angle. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: The Dude and QMany (last year's DTs), GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux & Hedley Lamarr (already elected) NOMINATIONS CLOSE FEBRUARY 7
  13. Defensive End: Technically Sound - When you're toying with a 320 pound offensive lineman, you need to know how to get past them. Hand technique is crucial! This poster should be a master of the "swim" move (has a free-style), the "rip" move (points out incorrect stats and states his opposing viewpoints freely), and the "bull rush" (sometimes has too much to talk about)! Grant Wistrom and Trev Alberts are two examples of the prototypical Rush End. Reads the QB's eyes - When in a passing situation (and when not trying to sack the QB), this guy is always looking at the passer to see which passing lane he should cover and gets his arms up when the ball is released to knock it down. Ideally, this member intently reads all the opinions of the previous posters and finds out how to best agree or disagree with the viewpoints presented. Great acceleration - This guy has to get off the line fast in order to get to the QB as fast as possible. He should have a sharp burst of energy when the ball is snapped. Therefore, I think this poster should be one of those guys who comes into the forums (the ball is snapped) and immediately posts 3-4 replies to the most recent threads. You see this person's name at the top of the forums a lot! Versatility - Having to be fast enough to get to the QB, big enough to take on the O-line, strong enough to bring down a RB, and quick enough to fall back into a cover-zone. This poster should be seen in all types of forums, flashing knowledge on a wide array of topics. A jack-of all trades. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: In the Deed the Glory & Guy Chamberlain (last year's DEs), GSG, zoogs, ColoradoHusk, Moiraine, Redux & Hedley Lamarr (already elected) NOMINATIONS CLOSE FEBRUARY 7
  14. Quarterback: Leader - A take charge kind of guy. He starts a majority of the threads here on the board, being a topic starter. Cannon Arm – The QB has a blast visiting HuskerBoard daily. He has an powerful way with posts (shooting at lot of posts at us daily). Offensive Minded - He makes the offense offensive. He may correct you to his way of thinking. Some of his remarks may offend you but he makes you dish it out like he dished on you. Great Size - The ideal "pocket passer" QB should have great size - 6'2" to 6' 5". This gives them the ability to see over the line and take big hits from defenders. Therefore, this poster should have a good volume of posts. We're not looking for ones that say "I agree" or "That's funny" though... These posts should all have good quality and stand above all other "defenders." Field Vision - He has to see what the defense is giving him and make the best of the situation. That means our QB reads pretty much all of the posts and gives what he feels to be the best answer/comment to the question - and many times it is the most noteworthy comment of the thread. Scrambling Ability - The QB should be able to "scramble when flushed out of the pocket" by an odd question. This poster can quickly answer the question posed from his own knowledge of Husker football or experience. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: Redux (last year's QB) NOMINATIONS CLOSE JANUARY 31
  15. Running Back: Not afraid to take hits - hits the holes hard and fast and dishes out just as well as he receives. Very consistent - This person gives good information on a constant basis and is dependable when opinions are needed. this person states his viewpoints and does not waver from them. Competitor - Even after fumbling (giving bad advice), this guy will always come back at you the next time with his best. Never afraid of the opposing linebacker (critic), will carry the ball until the cows come home. An "inside runner" - When the holes are made for him, he has to fly through with a quick step. This poster is able to find the inside information, then quickly divulge it to HuskerBoard so we can all "gain yardage!" Ability to "bounce it to the outside" - When the hole isn't there, this guy can use his lateral thinking skills (and lateral movement) to tiptoe the sidelines for a good gain. Catching out of the backfield - When a fellow poster (or his QB) gets in trouble in a topic, the RB has to be able to and bail him out. Short dumpoffs, designed draws, and screens should be easily fielded by this poster. Picking up the blitz - Handles several topics/Mocks/debates/etc... while always prioritizing correctly (reply to a topic first, then worry about debating on the Heisman winner or best college mascot). Reliable - Can be counted on to show up and play hard every week. Won't cough up the ball when taking a hard hit. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not eligible: Moiraine & ScottyIce (last year's running backs) NOMINATIONS CLOSE JANUARY 31
  16. Defensive Coordinator: Defensive mind - This guy is all about keeping people out of the end zone. It's his job to find the correct personnel for each situation and keep the offense from finding a hole or seam to advance the ball. So, when posting on HuskerBoard, this member employs the best info and stats available to defend his arguments from being shot down by others. Knows when to blitz - Sometimes an opponent is in a situation where a blitz will almost surely create a forced throw, a turnover, or a big loss. This poster brings the heat by quickly posting a counter argument to a weak or disjointed post. It almost always squashes the opposing viewpoint before posters can even bother to post against it...therefore many times it's not even necessary to pile it on! Experience - Just like an offensive coordinator, the DC is normally an old defensive player or coached linebackers, the secondary, or the defensive line for several years. We're looking for a veteran poster who has been able to defend HuskerBoard's honor in many ways during his years here. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not Eligible: Admins & Mods NOMINATIONS CLOSE 1/24
  17. Offensive Coordinator: Relayer - "The OC" (as he may be called) has to hand down the offensive play call from the Head Coach for it to be implemented in the game. So, this poster is someone who likes to give out new breaking stories or updates to players & coaches, and does it very often. Tactician - The Offensive Coordinator has to sense weaknesses in a defense throughout the whole game and can sense changes quickly enough to call a play that will exploit the opponent. In HuskerBoard-land, this poster is able to find flaws in weaker arguments and rebut it with the most pertinent facts and stats to gain himself "yardage" in the thread. Student of the game - Offensive Coordinators normally start out as a coach in another capacity on a team or several teams, such as QB or WR coach. They can teach the players on the field and call the plays during the game. So, I would have to say there's a lot of experience that must be gained to take this position. Therefore, this poster should be a veteran of the site who has been here long enough to understand the ins and outs of the "offense" in the form of posts and threads. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not Eligible: GSG (last year's Offensive Coordinator) NOMINATIONS CLOSE 1/24
  18. Head Coach: Teacher - You have come to learn from this guy on a regular basis. He has expert knowledge of Husker football. He is always helpful and willing to help you out with something you need, whether on the boards or PMs...especially newcomers. Play Caller - This guy “runs the show” in his mind. You often see him on HuskerBoard organizing several "audibles" at any given time in a heated topic of discussion. He’s been known to get some of his preseason predictions right, and his knowledge of Husker football is second to none. He often sways the opinions of the majority in a discussion thread. Worldly Knowledge - Even though some coaches use a "cheat sheet" with all the plays on them, our Head Coach doesn't need them. This member is active in numerous areas of HuskerBoard, offering insights on various topics already posted, and keeping HuskerBoard informed of breaking news or important subjects. Because of the crucial nature of this position, this member should be a veteran of many years at HuskerBoard. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not Eligible: Admins & Mods NOMINATIONS CLOSE 1/24
  19. Recruiting Staff: New To The Team – This is often the first position available to a new member on the staff, but someone whose impact can be felt right away. These posters should be someone who have never held a position in the Starting Lineup before, but whose contributions are unique to the board and whose fresh perspective have put him slightly ahead of the rest of the crowd. Lots of Hustle – A Recruiting Coordinator Intern has to keep all the pieces moving, keeping the staff up-to-date on all their travel plans, getting whatever is needed as fast as possible to keep the fresh recruits coming in. HuskerBoard’s Recruiting Interns should contribute more than just talk in Husker Football, whether that contribution is providing info in the Recruiting forum, helping answer questions in the Audio/Video forum, providing yummy recipes in Roxy's Recipes forum, or even making helpful and informative Status Updates. High Turnover – Unfortunately, the Recruiting Coordinator Intern is a position with lots of potential for turnover. Interns come, Interns go. This is your chance to give that new guy a well-deserved “attaboy” for his contributions, and make him feel like a member of the team. Who knows, he may stick around. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard. Not Eligible: Enhance89, GSG5545, El Diaco, 1995 Redux, Moiraine, MattyIce, Hedley Lamarr, BigRedBuster, teachercd, The Dude, QMany, In the Deed the Glory, Guy Chamberlin, Decked, TAKODA, The Maudfather, NM11046, dudeguyy, Landlord of Memorial Stadium, Red Five, Warrior10, lo country, Atbone95, ZRod, B.B.

  20. Equipment Staff: Upwardly Mobile – The Equipment Manager has dreams of climbing the coaching ranks, and gets this position because he has shown the potential to hold a higher office. HuskerBoard’s Equipment Manager is a guy who may be just starting out, but who already exhibits the potential to one day become a Head Coach or a Coordinator. Coachability – Aspiring to the coaching ranks is a noble pursuit, but there is a steep learning curve. The Equipment Manager needs to be able to take instruction well, and put that instruction to good use. So this position should be filled by a guy who learns from the Vets and applies what he learns in his posts. This is not just someone whose ideas have no conviction, just someone who is willing to listen and learn from solid advice. Starting Small – Let’s face it, the road to the coaching ranks begins at the lowest levels. Aspiring Offensive Coordinators and Head Coaches need to get their feet wet somehow. The Equipment Manager should be a guy who, while he hasn’t been around very long, already exhibits some of the qualities we see in the Head Coach and/or Offensive/Defensive Coordinator: gives instruction, fires off frequent posts and provides good information. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard.

  21. Strength & Conditioning Staff: Willingness to Serve – Strength & Conditioning is critical position in Husker Nation, and these guys must be willing to give their all to the team. Finding errors on the site or suggestions for the Feedback Forum, while not so glamorous, help HuskerBoard to be a better place for all. Uplifting – The S&C Interns keep the team on the field strong all four quarters, allowing us to dominate at the end of the game. HuskerBoard’s S&C Interns are guys who adds fresh perspective to the thread, or who bring out that key point that may have been missed so far in the conversation. These are also folks who stick around through the off season, providing witty commentary or bringing up interesting points to ponder during the 2/3 of the year without football. Unsung Hero – Weak players are bad players. The S&C Interns are the backbone of the program, but often get overlooked in the process. HuskerBoard’s S&C Interns should be those guys whose contributions, while worthwhile, somehow leave them out of the limelight. This is our chance to say “thanks” for all of their work that may seem to go unnoticed. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard.

  22. Long Snapper: Versatile - You don't realize how much he is actually on the field. He's on the field when your team is doing well - scoring touchdowns or attempting field goals - and when they aren't doing as well - punting. Some of his snaps are long and some are short but always accurate. Has to be someone that contributes in a lot of ways. Unsung Hero - When he's doing a great job, you sometimes don't even realize he's there. A guy who contributes effectively and often but might not always get the recognition he deserves. Upwardly mobile - Might not get a lot of pub now but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a future. Every NFL team need a long snapper. Might cash in on a nice career by finding a niche and excelling at the next level. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard.

  23. Kick Returner: RB wanna-be - When no opening is created, a Kick Returner normally tries to plow through the opposing special team members head on to try to gain some extra yards. Therefore, the ideal HuskerBoard KR has Running Back capabilities. You might want to consult the description of RB (not afraid to take hits, consistent, competitive, reliable) in order to best make a nomination/vote. High top speed – Josh Davis was the prototypical KR. He could run straight from his own goal line and reach a very high speed by the time he got to the 20. By this time, the defense has hit the wedge and he could either find the seam to take it to the house or blast through the best hole he could find to get some yardage. A poster who really gets on a roll with their posts and can find that bit of extra info that someone opened up for him would be a great KR. Dangerous - He may not be on the field a lot, but when he is, look out! A threat to take it all the way Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard.

  24. Punt Returner: Fair Catch ability - If the PR knows he's going to get drilled if he tries a runback, he needs to wave the arm, concentrate on the ball, and make the fair catch. This poster should always think about the best way to approach a question and to give the best answer as to not bring on extra attack from others (and a spear tackle from a gunner)! Makes the first guy miss - The most important move for the PR is making that quick sidestep to the left or right to get the first man in to commit to a poor tackle (like Niles Paul's return against Colorado this year). Once this is accomplished, the PR can follow his blocks and use his cutting ability to score the TD. To me, this guy is really a sneaky member! He'll give you enough of a comment to reel you into arguing with him, and then, BAM! You've just missed the point completely, and the poster looks like a fantasy genius with his reply to your opposing viewpoint! Shifty - Can change directions on a dime, makes people miss. Look no further than Johnny Rodgers' electrifying return in the Game of the Century for the ideal of this trait. Rodgers dipped, dived and dashed his way through the heart of the Sooner coverage team en route to maybe the most important TD in Nebraska history. Lightning-quick speed and reaction time, young, smart, able to make an opening for himself where one doesn't exist. Please nominate the person you feel best exemplifies these traits on HuskerBoard.

  25. Defensive Special Teamer (Gunner): Insane - Have you ever seen these idiots play football? They run as fast as they possibly can down the field in order to run into an oncoming wedge/defender head on! But, busting up a wedge to allow another player to make the tackle on the returner is very important. This poster probably has some weird and wild ideas, but still get the job done. Eric Martin is just the most recent example of this position, but Brandon Rigoni may be the best. Speedy - Once the ball is in the air, the defensive special teamers need to get to the ball as fast as possible to either make the tackle or down a punt close to the opposing goal-line. There's nothing that frustrates a coach more than giving the other team 20 free yards! We need someone who is a speed poster and has the body control and ability to down the ball inside the 10! Young - Coaches love to use true freshmen on special teams. Normally they don't want their skill players getting hurt on a kick/punt coverage or returning. I think this position should be filled by a "rookie" of HuskerBoard - maybe someone who has only been here for 3 months or less...longer if we can't think of anyone.
