    flashback 1984..National Championship game

    When Tom Osborne made the same decision in 1984. On a much bigger stage.

    Yes, several Husker fans that I know have pointed out to me that CPR had his own Tom Osborne moment. However, they (and many other Husker posters) were quick to point out to me that TO made the decision due to his "respect for the game" and CPR's decision was motivated by his enormous ego - "obviously, he was only interested in getting some more recognition from the media, to add to his YouTube collection". I had to resist the urge to punch him in the face.
