Big Red Cobcast: The Grant Wistrom Interview

Big Red Cobcast Logo

There are few things that are cooler than National Signing Day. One of those things is Grant Wistrom. Grant Wistrom is cooler than almost everything. Grant wistrom is so cool that leather jackets ask for him for Christmas.

Here at the Big Red Cobcast, we have been begging Grant Wistrom to be our friend for over two years. As a matter of fact, we have dubbed every Wednesday since 2014 #WistromWednesday and hounded him with tweets about his uncanny awesomeness. We have bombarded him with so many pictures and quotes and facts about himself that he finally gave in and “GRANTed” us an interview.

See what I did there?

It was pretty subtle, so you may have missed it. Let me repeat myself, to make doubly sure that you did, in fact, see what I did there. He “GRANTed” us an interview.

This is tied for the most epic day of my life.

These are the epic days I have had in order:

1. 1994 National Championship

1. 1995 National Championship

1. 1997 National Championship

1. Talking to Grant Wistrom

5. Getting Married

It’s not that I don’t love my wife. Don’t get me wrong, I love her very much. It’s just that Husker football doesn’t give two shits if I leave the cupboards open. Also, she doesn’t read these. So it’s cool.

This interview is a must listen. We talked about everything from Charlie McBride and the Blackshirts to Tom Osborne. He opened up about St. Louis moving to Los Angeles and his time in the NFL. we even talked about the 3-4 vs. 4-3.

I also got to brag about my Dead Lift. He said I was strong. NBD.

He also said Pat and I were funny. Again, NBD.
