Bankruptcy sale of former Husker lineman's trophies nets $28,500. Journal star.com. "A court-ordered auction of former Nebraska football player Aaron Taylor's championship hardware has brought in $28,500. It took about 30 minutes to sell Taylor's seven championship rings and his Outland Trophy on Saturday morning in Scottsbluff. Bids were taken in person and online. The trophy netted the highest bids, selling for $6,800. The rings sold for $2,000 to $5,900. The auction was forced by the failure of the Husker-themed Scarlet and Cream Letter Club restaurant Taylor started in Omaha with other former NU players and his resulting bankruptcy."
