My favorite MiQuale Lewis story: I'm sitting in the stands in Lincoln in 2007. Nate is carving up the Cornhusker defense, with a big assist from the running game.

Prior to Quale's injury, a couple Nebraska fans sitting in front of us marveled at him.

"Hot damn! Where did you find this kid?" he asked.

I gave him the backstory as I knew it, noting that no other 1-A programs offered him because of his size. The man, who told me he's been coming to Nebraska games since the late 60s, shook his head.

"Unbelievable. That kid's a bowling ball. I'd take him on the Huskers any day of the week."

This was from a guy who has seen two Heisman trophy RBs, plus three national championship teams with loaded backfields, play for his team.

As opponent compliments go, it's hard to top one like that.
