Husker Heartbeat 6/1: Barry, Beebe, Bo, Big East, Lew and Turner
A quick abbreviation key FYI: OWH=Omaha World-Herald, LJS=Lincoln Journal-Star, CN=Corn Nation, BRN=Big Red Network, HI=Huskers Illustrated, BRR=Big Red Report. If we need to add more - we will. Others, like ESPN, are self-explanatory.
*Why Barry Alvarez became a Husker.
*Talking Big 12 meetings heah! KC Star points to a Thursday showdown, while the LJS examines why the Big Ten Network is such a cash cow for the league. And even though you’re not that interested in the life story of Big 12 Commish Dan Beebe, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch offers it up anyway.
*Turner Gill tries to keep Kansas looking forward - not back at the Mark Mangino era.
*The LJS argues that Nebraska baseball is not alone in its struggles over the last two years, while head coach Mike Anderson explains why life for the southern schools is a little easier. Since Anderson is coming back in 2011, revisiting the failures of the last two years does little more than make excuses where they’re not needed.
*Bo Pelini wants the Big 12 to keep a north-south rotation for the Big 12 Championship.
*KU AD Lew Perkins was blackmailed for 7 months.
*As a football conference, the Big East is hanging on by a thread.
