Sounds like a great person... All the bad stuff that is said about college athletics and then it helps a great kid like Lucky. I wish him the best of successes in the future.

It's pretty obvious to me, I don't have tell you Marlon how much we Husker fans appreciate your contributions in helping your coaches and team mates in righting the ship. Among countless others over the years, you'll be remembered. Thank you for staying.

I'm glad that you can look back and see your Nebraska experience as something that helped you grow to become the man you are today. It's great that you were able to see all those that cared so much for you that although you might not have known before hand you certainly know now that family is not just those that shre the same blood type. You will be missed here in Nebraska and anytime you want to come home there will be 85,000 family members waiting for you in the stadium, don't forget about us, we will never forget Marlon Lucky and the man you've become.

Thank you for the great memories you provided my family with during your career as a Husker, Marlon. My wife converted from being a hardcore GA fan to a Nebraskan for life specifically because of your play, good work ethic, and the person that you are. Good luck in the pros; with your skill set and familiarity with the West Coast offense, I am confident that you will be a star given time and the right opportunity.

I've heard from multiple sources that dude had to be revived at the hospital after overdosing. He straight collapsed and was rushed to the hospital.

What more can I say? It is obvious that Nebraskans love and wish Marlon the best.

Disregard comments such as the one from #9 (Ignorant Iowa Fan)...unfortunately those of us who show compassion, care and quality life skills have to deal with ignorant people like this in our daily lives.

Probably just security issues or want some attention...right #9!

Thanks for your kind words of us Nebraska fans. You take a high road when at times it is was a difficult road for all of us. Deep down we will always be connected and you will be a treasured Nebraska player. I wish the best for you Marlon.

Marlon, you will always be welcomed in Nebraska. You did what was right for you and right for your team. In Nebraska, we love our football players. You will always have that love in Nebraska. Good luck in the draft on Saturday. Show those big shots you are still a five star player and a good young man.

It is nice to see Mr Lucky grow into a mature adult. I hope he realizes he will always have that support from the fans of NU. We will always be loyal to one of ours. Congratulations on getting your degree, and good luck in the draft.
