When his time is done, will he be known as the Iron Man of Husker Football?
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
He'll be regarded as a tough guy who put it all on the line and very much respected.
Iron Man has to go to Tom Novak who actually played both sides of the ball.
I'm sure Mr. Novak would laugh at the 'platoon' type system of college football now in which guys don't play both sides of the ball.
Concur on Tom Novak.
Without question, though, Rex has earned the soubriquet, Superman.
King Rex seems a bit redundant. though.

He'll be known as a solid back, maybe top 15 in husker history. About it.
Depends on how he finishes his last year.

I think he may be more well-remembered than that. Rex is Nebraska's first All-B1G football, and will likely be no worse than top ten in rushing and could be top five.
Depending on how the team itself fares this year, he could be remembered for even more.
I think he ranks right up there with the toughest RBs in Nebraska history.
He will always be a fan favorite... no matter the stats... and people will always bring him up as one of thr best at NU.

Rex legacy will transcend stats or rankings, he will be known as much more than that.
