Osborne Plans to Interview Gill; Booster Plane Arrives in Baton Rouge

New, 5 comments

Through the magic of the internet, Husker fans have tracked a plane owned by a Norfolk booster on a flight from Lincoln to Baton Rouge this afternoon, as reported by Nebraska State Paper and the Lincoln Journal-Star.

The plane is registered to Norfolk Iron & Metal Co, in Norfolk, Neb. The president of that company is Richard A. Robinson, whose family received the Clarence Swanson Memorial Award from Nebraska's Football Hall of Fame in 2006. The award is given for "outstanding contributions to the University of Nebraska and the Husker athletic department." Robinson also paid $750,000 for a 10-year lease on a skybox in Memorial Stadium.

Also, the Buffalo News reports that the University of Buffalo has granted permission to Nebraska to talk to Bulls head coach Turner Gill.
