Tommie Frazier, Nebraska
Before quarterback Tommie Frazier led his University of Nebraska Cornhuskers teams to back-to-back National Championships in 1994 and 1995, it had been almost a quarter-century since any other quarterback had accomplished such a feat. Various publications now mention Frazier among the greatest college quarterbacks of the 20th century. During his career at Nebraska, Frazier had a 45-4 record with 5,476 total yards of offense and 79 touchdowns.
Unfortunately, concerns over his health caused NFL teams to shy away from him. Frazier got a chance in the CFL but only played one game before being hospitalized with pneumonia and retiring soon after that. He soon went into coaching, spending a few seasons at Baylor before an unsuccessful stint as the head coach at Doane College in Nebraska in 2005 and 2006.
