The nice thing about being “Lincoln’s Husker Radio” is that you get a chance to not only air the games and SportsNightly (weeknights 6-9p hosted by Lane Grindle……..now you owe us commercial time…), but you also get access to the people who make the decisions around Husker athletics.
Wednesday, NU Senior Associate Athletic Director (fancy title for “Number 2”) Marc Boehm joined us to clarify the meaning behind the website redoutaroundtheworld.com. The athletic department/Omaha World Herald collaborative effort has raised a few eyebrows in the state about “targeting one game” (Texas) and not being “the Nebraska way.” But it has also drawn the interest of the national media, namely ESPN college football writer Pat Forde, who had some pointed things to say about how NU was shedding its image as a gracious and classy fan base.
Check out our interview with Marc Boehm and see why this may not be quite as inflammatory as some (namely Jack) make it out to be.
We also clear up some rumors about Big Ten Network appearances by the Huskers this upcoming sports season and talk about stadium expansion and the new basketball practice facility.
