I thought it was here to stay. However, I learned that I was wrong.
I should have guessed that when I learned Oscar Monterosso and Enrique “Kike” Morales were also the color commentator and play-by-play duo for the Kansas City Chiefs for the past ten years.
I should have realized that maybe the Spanish Football broadcast was a one-time deal.
For those that have no idea what I am talking about — a couple weeks ago Nebraska debuted the first Spanish-Language radio broadcast for the game against Northwestern. It was a perfect game for Monterosso and Morales as there were big plays and a game-winning field goal.
Here is their radio call for the Wan’Dale Robinson touchdown.

The percentage of Nebraskans that are Hispanic continues to grow which means that Nebraska needs to continue to reach out to those communities.
This is an opportunity for Nebraska football to stand out in a way from the pack and it obviously was very well received by the fans.
They should bring it back and make sure it stays.
Here is Enrique “Kike” Morales thanking the fans for showing so much support.
Thank you guys for so much love@LJSSportsWagner @PhilBergmanTV @HuskerFBNation @HuskerSports @LosHuskers @KCTicoSports pic.twitter.com/GGkFS8lCr5— Enrique (@KikeMorales88) October 7, 2019
