Select from the best of the guys who made quarterbacks miserable Happy Fourth of July everyone! I hope you are all well and safe and having a good time wherever you may be!
Chaos, mayhem and havoc. These are the guys that cause trouble for the quarterback. Nebraska has an impressive collection of talent – Brew said that every single one of the guys in this bracket was drafted.
Brew’s criteria for inclusion in this bracket:
This should be fun. OK, so what’s a Rush End? It can be a traditional DE or OLB, but not every DE or OLB qualifies. I had to kinda feel it out and go by my gut. They line up outside of the tackle and are responsible for creating chaos in the backfield. If you don’t see your favorite sackmaster, he’ll probably be included in either the LB bracket or the DL bracket.

Here’s the super duper secret decoder ring:

Consensus Unanimous All American (cuAA)
Consensus All American (cAA)
All American (AA)
All Conference (AC) – Must be 1st team.

1) Trev Alberts – cuAA, 2X AC. Nebraska’s only Butkus winner, most sacks all time (29.5), 3 sacks in ’94 Orange Bowl
V
16) Jay Moore – One heck of a rusher and current co-host of the Hail Varsity Radio show

***************
2) Grant Wistrom – 2X cAA, 3X AC. Most TFL all time (58.5), Lombardi Award winner
V
15) Chris Kelsay – Edges out big brother Chad for a spot on the list. They were both great.

****************
3) Broderick Thomas – cuAA, AA, 3X AC. The baddest man on Earth. The Sandman put running backs to sleep
V
14) Bob Martin – AA, 2X AC. Three year starter who produced year after year

*****************
4) Willie Harper – 2X cAA, 2X AC. No Husker has cost the opponent more yardage, 268 (!) yards in losses
V
13) Kyle Vanden Bosch – Blocked 3 kicks in one season

******************
5) Jared Tomich – AA, 2X AC. Walk-on becomes one of the best defenders on 2 NC teams
V
12) Derrie Nelson – AA, 2X AC. Captain of a defense that allowed 9.1 points/game

*******************
6) Randy Gregory – 2X AC. Makes the top ten all time sack list (17.5) in just 2 seasons
V
11) Mike Rucker – Better pro career than college, probably because he had to wait until Tomich and Wistrom graduated to earn a blackshirt

********************
7) Adam Carriker – 2X AC – The biggest Rush End on the list at 295 lbs. Seventh all-time in sacks (20.5)
V
10) George Andrews – AA, AC. One of the best defenders of the late 70′s
