As everyone knows, Bowman gave up his blackshirt yesterday as a statement of his respect for the Husker "blackshirt"
. This says a lot about his unselfishness and team oriented mindset. He shouldn't have been the one to give it up though, as I see it. He was one of the top performers last saturday versus USC. Octavian should be able to keep his blackshirt, too. Bo Ruud and McKeon should be giving up their blackshirts. I've heard of talk that maybe they should make the blackshirt a reward for superior Husker defensive performance. I think this is a GREAT idea and would maybe make our defense work a little harder. We definitely needed more effort last Saturday versus USC. That was just pathetic.
