Who is the greatest football alumnus from each Big XII Program?

CRITERIA

1. Judge players by both their college and pro careers. We are trying to find the baddest mofo who put on the shoulder pads at a given school.

2. Coaches are ineligible (Tom Osborne - Nebraska, Barry Switzer - Oklahoma) unless they played football at the school they are famous for coaching.

Close call between Winslow and Roger Wehrli. The latter is a Hall of Fame CB, 7x All Pro, and member of the NFL 1970's All Decade Team.

That doesn't matter. He's still one of the 50 best football players to walk on the Manhattan campus.

I remember reading somewhere in the late 70's or early 80's that NU had enough redshirt freshmen on their squad to field a team that would contend for a national title all by themselves.

I remember reading somewhere in the late 70's or early 80's that NU had enough redshirt freshmen on their squad to field a team that would contend for a national title all by themselves.

NU used to have so many players stockpiled it took 3 football fields for them to practice. Scholarship limitations took care of that.
