College football Hall-of-Famer Grant Wistrom joins Ryan and Pat midday to lay it all out there. He discusses being in Lincoln for the Huskers’ heyday, winning three national championships, the ferocity of Charlie McBride and the Blackshirts, watching Christian Peter smash a Christmas ornament over his head, Nebraska’s switch to the 3-4 defense under Bob Diaco, the current culture under Mike Riley, playing for Tom Osborne and Dick Vermeil, leaving Missouri to play for the Big Red, watching the Rams leave Missouri for Los Angeles, which NFL team he now roots for, who he’s destroyed on the field, who he wishes he had destroyed, what he really thinks of Chris and Chad Kelsay, his brother Tracey Wistrom’s success as a tight end, CrossFit and MORE! And of course, he discusses the Big Red Cobcast phenomenon #WistromWednesday. HIP! HIP! HOORAY!
The Big Red Cobcast is an irreverent Nebraska Cornhusker Football podcast hosted by Nebraska bred comedians. It’s the funniest thing to happen for Nebraska since we made Spurrier cry.
Pat janssen is the nerd, Joe Canale is the stoner and Tweedy is the dope ass, cool guy. Well, now you know who we are. So let’s do it to it.
Please follow us on Twitter (@bigredcobcast) for all of our hot takes, sweet jokes and fan favorites like #WistromWednesday, as well as some analysis and interviews with former stars, coaches and whoever the hell else we feel like talking to.
And most importantly – GBR baby!
