The big twelve championship game did not acquire the Huskers a title, but it did get the nations attention. As I have surfed around looking at different sites, blogs, message boards around the nation, one thing is clear. If you didn't know about #93 from the Huskers, you do now. Fans of Nebraska or not, you can't help but notice that Ndamukong Suh is the most dominate defensive player this season.
Any team that has played the Huskers, has to develop there schemes around Suh. Why, because he will beat your team down. Double and triple teamed all season long his numbers do not lie. Suh currently leads all defensive tackles in the nation in sacks with 12 (tied for sixth overall) and is second among DTs in tackles for loss with 23 (fifth overall). Pair that with his team-leading 50 solo tackles, 82 total tackles, 24 quarterback hurries and three blocked kicks, and you can easily make the case that no player in the nation means more or does more for his team than Suh. That is what the Heisman Trophy is supposed to be about. Recognizing the best impact player in the nation. How does Suh not get the award?
On Sat eve, the nations pick, Mr, McCoy went head to head with Suh and received the beat down of his collage career. I am not saying the McCoy has not been tested before, but usually he rises to the challenge. This did not happen, not only did he struggle, McCoy looked like he was scared for his life. Why wouldn't he be, he was dominated by Suh the entire game. We as fans scream for head to head competition of the best of the best. Well Sat night, you had the best on the field and Suh showed why he should be the Heisman Trophy winner. A total dominate performance.
Ndamukong Suh has started his week of receiving all of the awards he deserves. If this doesn't sound like the best player in collage football I don't know what does.
Charlotte, N.C., to attend the banquet tonight for the Nagurski Award. Suh is a finalist for the award. Houston, for the Lombardi Award on Wed night. Orlando on Thurs for the espn college awards show, Suh is up for the Outland Trophy, Bednarik Award and the Walter Camp Award. Last but certainly not least, IF named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, he SHOULD be in New York on Friday for festivities, and what should be his Trophy presentation on Saturday.
