    Athlon released its Top 50 College Football Players of the past 50 Years (1957-2016), based upon the voting of a 16 member panel.

    Which dumbass panel member didn't vote for Nebraska QB Tommie Frazier? 33-3 as the Husker starter in leading Nebraska to 2 consecutive national championships -- which would have been 3 if not for a bogus flag that negated Corey Dixon's punt return TD and a missed 45 yard FG as the clock expired in an 18-16 loss to FSU in the '94 Orange Bowl.

    And all those great Miami (FL) and Florida State teams of the 80s & 90s and both teams only have one (1) player each selected (Ed Reed & Deion Sanders)? Unreal.

    Interestingly, Notre Dame didn't have a player selected for this Top 50. I wonder how close Raghib Ismail came to making the cut. He was scary returning kicks for the Irish at a time Notre Dame was actually pretty good at football.
