About half of the people who watch the Super Bowl aren't watching it for the actual game. They're watching it for the commercials.
On the morning of March 25, a fresh blanket of snow covered the turf. Maybe it was fitting, for the tenants of Al F. Caniglia Field were about to get the cold shoulder. West of the field, through the doors of Sapp Fieldhouse and up a flight of steps, wrestling's national championship banners hung from the rafters as remnants of the past. Down in Lincoln, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents met to unplug the life support that the UNO Mavericks Football and Wrestling teams clung to so desperately.
It's tough to just sit here and know that a program I dedicated 5 years of my life to has vanished overnight.
