One year after setting a school record with a 44.98 punting average, punter Dan Hadenfeldt's career average of 44.39 was etches in the Husker record books in 2000 as the all-time best.  His career average of 44.39 is nearly three yards better than the previous NU career record holder (Jesse Kosch, 41.9, 1994-97).  31 of his 104 career punts were inside the opponent's 20-yard line.

Hadenfeldt and fellow senior Jason Schwab were two bonus "recruits" for Nebraska in 2000, as both were awarded a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.  Hadenfeldt, the only player to participate in two Hula Bowls, made good use of his extra year, posting a 43.8 average, which ranked eighth nationally and second in the Big 12.  For his efforts, Hadenfeldt earned first-team All-Big 12 honors by the league coaches and the Houston Chronicle and earned second-team honors from the AP, The Sporting News, and the Dallas Morning News.  He was also named to the Ray Guy Award Watch List.
