It Happened

The day Tom Osborne and Barry Switzer become good buddies is the day hell freezes over, right? Well, it happened. There was a time when Osborne and Switzer probably wanted to strangle each other, but those days are gone. Switzer, the former Oklahoma coach, made an appearance Wednesday with Osborne, the former Nebraska coach. The purpose? To rally support for Osborne's bid to become governor of Nebraska. "After what he did in winning national championships in the 1990s and dominating college football," Switzer said, "running this state would be easy." Osborne, a Republican, is serving his third term as 3rd District congressman in Nebraska and has steamrolled his competition in the political arena, and we suspect he will have the upper hand in this race, too.
