After taking a month off, the Husker Football Fan Podcast is back for our second season! Episode 1 is a preview of the Oregon game with Kirk Carpenter, a lifelong Oregon fan from the west coast. We discuss the matchup, talk about the Ducks’ recent coaching changes, and look at their fall schedule: Direct link to listen: http://traffic.libsyn.com/huskerpod/S02E01_-_Oregon_Preview.mp3 Podcast episode page: http://huskerpod.libsyn.com/s02e01-oregon-preview You can also subscribe on iTunes. We have a number of interviews lined up, so we're going to continue with a weekly format for the month of July. Next week we'll be publishing an interview with Kyle Jones of Eleven Warriors (Ohio State's Huskermax equivalent), and after that will be Zach Pereles of Inside NU (SBNation's Northwestern beat). And as if that wasn't enough, we also just published a midsummer update discussing the Friday Night Lights camps and the state of the sellout streak.

This is a different format from what we did during the season, so we're open to constructive criticism. Thanks for listening
+ + Why College Football Should Be Banned from the Wall Street Journal The costs are high, the benefits to students are low, argues Buzz Bissinger, and academics pay the price. + Sports Journalist, Daily Beast columnist and Friday Night Lights author Harry Gerald "Buzz" Bissinger argues that College Football is an expensive and pointless excess that should be banned. + + "College Football has no academic purpose. Which is why it needs to be banned." + "If the vast majority of major college football programs made money, the argument to ban football might be a more precarious one. But too many of them don't-to the detriment of academic budgets." + "There is a false concept of the football student-athlete that the NCAA endlessly tries to sell, when any major college player will tell you that the demands of the game, a year-round commitment, makes the student half of the equation secondary and superfluous." + "Call me the Grinch. But I would much prefer students going to college to learn...rather than dumping fees on them to subsidize football programs that, far from enhancing the academic mission instead make a mockery of it."
