The Media Microscope is back in focus and this time around we have the host of Lincoln radio station 93.7 The Ticket's "Drop the Mike" Mike Welch under the lens.
If this is your first time reading this series, the goal of this feature is to evaluate Husker Nation's popular writers and personalities through the lens of the fan. Critique those that critique for a living. The rules are simple:
- I present the media personality up for your review (i.e. Joe Schmoe - Lincoln Journal Star)
- You vote in the poll at the bottom of the article
- You comment with the one thing you like most (Thumbs Up) and the one thing you dislike most (Thumbs Down) about the media personality under review (i.e. Thumbs Up - Love his honest take on the columns he writes/Thumbs Down - I wish he would stop referencing the previous coaching staff)
- After enough responses are gathered, I will summarize all positive and critical comments in a later post. If you have the same sentiment as others that's perfectly fine as the point is to find the common denominator for each media personality.
- Got it? Good.
Before you sing the praises of the popular radio host, here are a few of Welch's most notable works:
- Which Nebraska recruit could be 2015's DPE: Welch discusses which 2015 true freshman could have a De'Mornay Pierson-El-like impact next season.
- What is the biggest reason preseason #21 ranked Nebrasketball has struggled so much this season?: The Nebraska men's basketball team's inability to live up to preseason expectations and the outlook for the remainder of the season are discussed.
- Mike Riley talks about Tommy Armstrong, what will it take for anybody to dethrone Tommy as the starter?: Welch riffs on Nebraska head coach Mike Riley's comments about returning quarterback Tommy Armstrong and how Armstrong will fair under the tutelage of Riley and new offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf.
