The Missouri-Nebraska game was full of newsworthy moments. The Tigers beat the Huskers in Lincoln for the first time in 30 years, a Nebraska player spit on Chase Daniel during pregame warmups and announcers Sean McDonough, Chris Spielman and Rob Stone spent an unseemly amount of time discussing Daniel's short stature and semi-prominent gut.

The guys at Friends of the Program set out for Vandy with a noble intention: to take lots of pictures during the pre- and postgame festivities (as well as at the game itself) and post a fun and informative photo essay. But passing out at a bar, losing a Blackberry and having to watch GameDay from a hotel room put a damper on those plans.
On Friday, we brought you The Love of Sports' list of the NCAA's best young guns. But freshman quarterbacks aren't the only ones making an impact this season, which is why The Angry T put together a thorough list of 2008's most fabulous freshman. When we said thorough, we meant it. Sure, WR A.J. Green, QB Robert Griffin and RB Jacquizz Rodgers all earned a mention, but so did lesser-known freshman phenom Ross Evans. (He's a kicker.)
