2020 Episode 9: Fans At Football Games

September 30, 2020

The Big 10 Conference has said not fans at football games when the season starts on October 24.  The big wigs in the league changed their mind on even having a football season, will they change their minds when it comes to fans? Dr. Rob Zatechka and Travis Justice discuss on this edition of the podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy

Also, players are getting an extra year of eligibility because of COVID-19. Will seniors who have an NFL future stick around?  Dr. Rob gives an interesting answer on whether or not he would have stayed to play in 1995, even with an NFL contract in front of him. 

We drink beer, swear like sailors, and talk football.  Enjoy!

Where there is smoke, is there fire?  We are hearing a lot of rumor of the Big 10 Conference reversing course and could possibly start the season in October.  That's great news for college football fans as the Big 12 is scheduled to start next weekend and the ACC and SEC soon after that. 

 

In this episode of the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy, Dr. Rob Zatechka and Travis Justice discuss the possibility of getting the season started and what is needed right now to make it happen. 

 

Also, Desmond Howard has "unblocked" Dr. Rob from Twitter, but now Dr. Rob is getting a different kind of block, this time from the Grand Island Public Schools.
