Don't call Broderick Thomas crazy. Just call him linebacker, which in his mind carries the same meaning. "You have to be a different person to be a linebacker," said the Nebraska senior, who will line up Saturday evening against UCLA at the Rose Bowl. "You have to have about 12 different moods. Some days, you don't want to be touched. Some days, you don't want people breathing around you. "You ask any linebacker. They all have those feelings.

Minnesota Viking linebacker Broderick Thomas was arrested near Houston on charges of driving while intoxicated and unlawfully carrying a weapon, police said. He was jailed on the two misdemeanor charges, then released pending a future court date after paying $1,300 for bail. It is not the first brush with the law for Thomas, who was arrested in July for trying to conceal an unloaded pistol before boarding a plane. The Vikings said Thomas won't return to the team next season.

Jimmy Johnson thought and thought and thought, but this was the only way to go. 2 GREEN BAY: TONY MANDARICH: OT:: Michigan State: Now he's being billed, not: just as the greatest line prospect since Anthony Munoz, but by Sports Illustrated as the greatest prospect ever.

If you can somehow overlook Broderick Thomas' tendency to deliver more entertaining monologues than anyone from Nebraska since Johnny Carson, you might find the Cornhuskers' senior All-American linebacker a little on the shy side. Kind of like his uncle, Mike Singletary, the Chicago Bears' all-pro linebacker and man of few words. "If you got to know him," said Tony Samuel, the Nebraska linebacker coach who has had Thomas for the last 3 seasons, "you'd find that he's a little reserved. Really."
