Bucs rookie linebacker and former Nebraska player Barrett Ruud comes from a long line of Nebraska linebackers. His father, two uncles and great-grandfather all played linebacker at Nebraska.
Additionally, he thought the first version of Longest Yard was funnier than the Adam Sandler version.
And, oh yeah, he's white. To be honest, first time I saw his name I assumed he was black. Maybe I'm the only person who assumed that, but I don't imagine I'm alone. But then again, I am an idiot.
