Ever wonder what Memorial Stadium looks like from an athletic director's suite? Ever think about how much fun it would be to sprint from the North Stadium tunnel with Bo Pelini leading the charge of jumping players while trumpets blare and fans scream?
Well, wonder no more. Huskers.com Auctions has a couple of Spring Game experiences that begin today and will be finalized and processed by next Wednesday afternoon, in plenty of time for some savvy bidder to orchestrate a first-ever auction involving 10 seats in the visiting athletic director's suite at Memorial Stadium.
One Husker family of four from Papillion, Neb., already has experienced the fabled Nebraska Tunnel Walk. Because last spring's product lived up to its promotion - the Papillion family considers the experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity - we are offering the same auction this year and expect this Spring Game Tunnel Walk Experience to become an annual event.
Bidding on the first Huskers.com Spring Game Auction Package includes 10 seats in the visiting athletic director's suite on the sixth floor of the Nebraska press box; a guided tour of the Tom and Nancy Osborne Athletic Complex, including the Nebraska Football Experience Room; a sideline tour of pre-game atmosphere directly on the field during warm-ups; a catered lunch in the visiting AD's suite; and a personal visit in your suite-for-the-day from Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne.
Bidding on the Huskers.com Tunnel Walk Experience for Four includes four seats in the Corporate Sideline Seating Area; the opportunity to take the field with the team right behind the players as they make their entrance during the famed Tunnel Walk; your own Huskers.com video to help you remember that rare experience; a guided tour of the Tom and Nancy Osborne Athletic Complex, including the Nebraska Football Experience Room; and a personally signed football by both Pelini and Osborne.
While those two major auctions begin Friday and end next Wednesday, three more Huskers.com auctions also begin Friday and will end on Tuesday, April 19 - 1) a hand-painted picture of Jerry Tagge's historic touchdown in the 17-12 national championship win over LSU in the 1971 Orange Bowl; 2) a 1962 vintage helmet signed by Osborne; and 3) an autographed football signed by three Husker Heisman Trophy winners and three Sooner Heisman Trophy winners.
