I really enjoyed hearing Tom Osborne speak at the Little Rock Touchdown Club on 9-9-13 and Osborne started off his talk by telling a story. He said that at the end of the 1997 season his Nebraska team was undefeated and they faced Tennessee in the national championship game. He was amazed at how many press conferences they had leading up to the game. At the final press conference before the game he was sitting next to Phillip Fulmer and the Tennessee coach kept going on and on about how brilliant Peyton Manning is and how he knows so much. Then Fulmer called Manning up and asked him, “Peyton show people how smart you are, WHO IS YOUR FATHER’S BROTHER’S NEPHEW?” Peyton thought about it briefly   and he said, “That would be me.” Coach Fulmer responded, “That is the correct answer.”

Coach Osborne said he did not want to be outdone so he asked Steve Foster his starting QB to come up and Coach Osborne asked him the same question, “Who is your father’s brother’s nephew.” Foster leaned over and asked  Matt Davison and Davison told Foster, “The answer is ME.” Then Foster spoke loudly “The answer is Matt Davison.” Coach Osborne exclaimed, “No that is not the right answer!!! The answer is PEYTON MANNING!!!”
