Big Red Cobcast: Nebraska’s New American Hero

Hoss Reuter is back. And with him comes everything that’s right with Nebraska.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Nebraska has produced its fair share of legendary Americana. Marlon Brando. Johnny Carson. Kool-Aid.

I vote that we add another to our home state’s list of amazing contributions. That addition? Corn Nation’s own Hoss Reuter. In fact, I would put Hoss ahead of all others. Peter Fonda, Hillary Swank and cans of Spam don’t talk offensive line and Danny Langsdorf’s offensive formations with us. Nor do they roam the aisles of Wal-Mart while spending an hour on the phone with us to go on the Cobcast.

But Hoss Reuter does!

So short answer: Hoss Reuter is better than Malcolm X, Father Flanagan and the Reuben sandwich.

I still love all of those things, but Hoss is, quite simply, The Man.

And The Man brought it once again. He broke down many of the differences between what we’ll see on offense for the Huskers this year compared to last year, who is better equipped to succeed at running back and offensive line, secondary depth, and how and when Mark Phillip’s strength and conditioning program will finally take shape.

We also discuss the difference in Huskers fans from different generations and what it means to grow up a Husker in varying eras. What’s it mean to be a teenager in the mid 90s versus being a teenager in the Bill Callahan days? Is Hoss simply a better man that us because he’s remained a big fan without witnessing Tommie Frazier with the eyes of a fully formed human? Short answer: Probably.

Oh, and of course, we compared dead lifts and squats. Spoiler alert: I beat everyone.

Don’t believe me? Listen for proof!
