Tommy and Tommie texting buddies?

Tommy and Tommie are talking. A former Husker great, giving advice and encouragement to one trying to become great.

According to a recent Tom Shatel article in the Omaha World Herald, Nebraska starting quarterback Tommy Armstrong is receiving some encouragement from someone who knows a thing or two about the position in Lincoln.

Tommie Frazier, a College Football Hall of Famer and former national championship winning quarterback as a Husker, has exchanged text messages with Armstrong, giving him words of encouragement.

“I’m not trying to coach,” Frazier said. “I don’t talk with (Armstrong) in-depth. I’m not here to say ‘What are you doing on offense?’

“I’m here to take the pressure off. I know what these guys are going through. The game moves so fast for a young quarterback. I want to see them perform well."

Shatel reports the relationship started when Tommy Armstrong's father Facebooked the former Husker, asking to give his son some words of encouragement last season.
