FOUR NU FOOTBALL PLAYERS stop for a picture in front of the
Washington Monument during a quick tour of Washington, D.C.,
before a ceremony at the White House. Even though it rained
most of the day, the team visited Arlington National Cemetery,
the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol.

Upon their arrival in Washington, the
Huskers began a five-hour tour of the nation’s
capital with a stop at Arlington National
Cemetery. The team then visited the Lincoln
Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial and the U.S.
“The main value of the trip was that 75 to 80
percent of these kids have never been here and
may never come back,” said Osborne, who
made the same trip with the 1994 NU national
championship team. “Hopefully, there was
some education involved with this.”
But even the sights didn’t compare to meet
ing Clinton, rush end Chad Kelsay said.
“It was so cool,” Kelsay said. “We knew
before we came here that we were going to have
the chance to do this, but you don’t realize what
an honor it is until you’re standing there next to

1 Co-champions accept
) shared national title
By Ted Taylor
WASHINGTON, D.C. - It would
| have been ideal had there been yard
markers painted on the White House
South Lawn on Thursday:
But while President Clinton’s
backyard may have been the perfect
place for the pickup game of the centu
ry, Nebraska and Michigan players and
fans agreed it really wasn’t necessary.
“We all wanted to play that game,”
said Husker senior rush end Chad
Kelsay, “but we know it’s just a bunch
of talk now.”
And if the Huskers and Wolverines
j couldn’t meet on the field, there’s no
better place to get together than the
White House, Michigan linebacker
Dhani Jones said after the ceremony.
“It was a neat way to recognize
both teams,” he said. “Both of us
| deserved a national championship.
“Sure we would have liked to play
| each other, but that’s not the way the
Clinton joked during die short cer
| emony in front of about 300 people
| that since the sun had finally come out,
the two teams should have headed for
the South Lawn. His joke was met by
loud cheers from both teams.
But even behind closed doors, the
nation’s No. 1 college football fan
wouldn’t say who he was really rooting
for in January.
“He wouldn’t reveal that to us,”
Michigan senior linebacker Chris
Singletary said. “He just told us we’re
both great teams.”
Getting the two teams there togeth
er was perfect, Michigan senior tight
end Jeremy Tuman said.
“I guess this is the fairest way to do
it,” he said.
Mike Nannes, a Washington
lawyer and 1974 Michigan alumnus,
who had was able to see the ceremony,
said as a Wolverine football fan, the
idea of a shared national championship
was absolutely better than nothing at
“I’ve had nothing at all for about 30
years,” he said. “I think most Michigan
fans, like myself, will take half.”
Nannes’ 12-year-old son, Cal, said
every Husker and Wolverine fan were
winners when both teams earned a
share of the title.
“If they would have given both
(titles) to one, it would have eliminated
half the happy fans.”
