Pretty good interview with Nebraska’s Tom Osborne that aired on our Tailgate 48 show this week. The Huskers athletic director talks about what makes being at Nebraska so special, but we really like the archival footage. It’s great for fans of the other 11 Big Ten schools to get to know Nebraska through access like this. Reminds us of Mike Hall’s interview with Bo Pelini on Step Into My Office a few weeks ago.
