Well done, Nebraska.

That was some porous defense.

Good on 'em.

Eh, they're still trying to make up for inflicting Lawrence Phillips, Christian Peter, and the rest of that scum from the 90s on the rest of society.

It started out as a nice human interest story, but it's descended into a giant circlejerk for Husker fans and the media looking for a feel-good story. Hope the kid gets better, but damn I'm tired of hearing about Nebraska's little P.R. stunt.

If this kid beats cancer and goes on to become a big star in the NFL and people drop their indifference toward football cards, this rookie card will be valuable.

It would've been awesome if a defender had let the kid get to the 5 yard line and then just destroyed him.

Uh, where was the flag for excessive celebration?  There were clearly multiple people involved in the celebration after the TD.

Will the stats on the back show his white blood cell count?

Is the Husker's defense always that porous?

right.  because if there is one thing the world doesn't need right now, it's a feel-good story.
