    “I thought Coach Osborne was very genuine. I knew he really cared about me as a person, even more than he did as a football player. Yes, he recognized me initially because of my football talents and all that, but I knew he cared about me deeply as a person. That means a lot to me.”

    -- Turner Gill. Former Head Coach at Buffalo, and now the newest of the Big Twelve Head Coaches. Gill took the position of Head Coach at Kansas on Monday.

    From “Beyond the Final Score” by Tom Osborne, 2009 published by Regal

    "Becoming a Division I football player, becoming a starting quarterback, winning a national championship as a coach, three national titles, and being undefeated for two and a half years. Coach Osborne started and reached his goal—seeing a great coach doing things the right way and treating people the right way and showing people you can be a nice guy and still win” -- Turner Gill



    In “Then Osborne Said to Rozier” by Steven Richardson, published by Triumph Books in 2008, former Cornhusker Quarterback and coach, Turner Gill lists above the rewards of being in Nebraska. Current Buffalo Head Coach Gill had his best year in 1983 when he passed for 1,516 yards and fourteen touchdowns.

    “He taught me so much about life and the spiritual part of myself. He was the main reason I chose the University of Nebraska in the first place, and he was the one who helped me grow into the person I am. I knew he would make me a better person, not necessarily a better quarterback or better football player. And I was right. We have so much tradition, loyalty, and integrity at Nebraska, and that’s what this football program has been about for all these years. I thank God for putting Nebraska there for me.” -- Turner Gill

    This is Buffalo head coach Turner Gill’s remarks in What It Means To Be A Husker by Jeff Snook in his 2004 publication.

    "You are never 100 percent perfect in recruiting. You would miss on some scholarship players. By redshirting players, by their junior or senior years, particularly walk-ons would be ready to play and they would be just like (good) scholarship players. This would be particularly true of positions like tight ends, fullbacks, and the offensive line, where there were a lot of walk-ons. It helped Nebraska to never have a bad year." -Turner Gill

    Turner Gill was Quarterback for Nebraska in the Osborne era and went on the coach at Nebraska and is Head Coach at Buffalo. He took the Buffalo team from losing years to the championship game.
