Listen: Nebraska, Football, Espn discussed on Only A Game
"A fan through memorabilia. They're all kinds of ways to do. You could be a fan through media. Nostalgia. Yep. What this thing with the women's tennis thing reminds me. Most of is the phenomenally stature decision that the NHL made years ago to get off ESPN and onto sports throat when they went to spike TV for the playoffs. Remember that went to the players before that they went to sports channel. They would ESPN's only professional league at the time and he did. You know they did it them up ESPN they did what he is being does, which is the hype them from the moon and then they moved onto sports. You know, that's what this reminds me of know. They made a big mistake and I think the good news is at least if you're a fan of tennis and I am because I watched the women as much as I watched the man. I'm happy that they're back can actually watch them for the season. And you know, finally, Charlie no-show, it'd be complete without at least some discussion of the Cleveland Browns. But here's a story about a different team, a barn. Iowa has a locked cooler full of Budweiser, Bud Light, but Budweiser that it will open when the Cornhuskers when its first football game of the season. Great idea, right? Yeah, I don't understand why barn. I always doing this, but. Okay. Just making fun of the. Husker's that cooler is likely going to stay closed for at least another week. But here's my question. What happened in Nebraska football? If you are of a certain generation, my late mother-in-law was from Nebraska, her brother and her father and her grandfather all played football for Nebraska. I think they've been crippled, I think by conference realignment and by the fact that the whole nature of college football's changed. The thing about those Nebraska teams was outside of people like Johnny Rodgers and Tommie Frazier, they were big goons. They would beat you to death over the up and down the field. The games changed to very big people who are really fast, and I don't think Nebraska's ever really caught up on that. We've come a long way since Tom rathman, Roger, Craig, there you go.
