CHICAGO – This Friday Bill Hazen Productions will distribute a special one-year anniversary edition of College Sports Weekly, celebrating the first year of the highly-acclaimed series. A group of special guests and features are planned for the show's 53rd airing.
The program's lead story will focus the famous football play known as the “Fumblerooski,” which the University of Nebraska used to win a national championship in 1984 with an Orange Bowl victory over the University of Miami. How Nebraska coach Tom Osborne discovered this play is a fascinating story which has never been told. Former Northern Illinois and Oregon State football coach Jerry Pettibone, a former assistant coach with the Huskers, will share his account of how it happened.
On the topic of national championships, North Dakota State football coach Craig Bohl knows all about them. His Bison are two-time defending FCS national champions, going for three in a row this year. Bohl will tell CSW listeners how North Dakota State has become a football power.
As always, listeners will hear media and conference executive Rex Lardner Talk Shop about this week's inside news in college athletics, as well as the media that cover it. Multi-award winning sportscaster Gene Delisio will provide his weekly coverage of the Small College Beat. Listeners will also hear from the people who make College Sports Weekly possible, including Executive Producer Keith Hoehne and Coordinating Producer Bo Carter. The presentation will also include some humorous moments from the program's first year.
“There's no doubt we've had a lot of fun with College Sports Weekly, said creator and host Bill Hazen. “The program has matured into a unique and compelling mix of reporting and storytelling.”
College Sports Weekly debuted on October 26th, 2012. The first guest on the program was Bill Hancock, Executive Director of the BCS.
“I've always felt there was a place for this kind of program,” Hazen said. “We're growing, and I'd like to thank our listeners and stations for making it possible.”
