Overview

Heart of a Husker is a portrait of Nebraska football coaching legend Tom Osborne, drawn with interviews from former players and coaches who were with the team during his 25 seasons as head coach. Osborne is a congressman now, in his third term in the House of Representatives.

Among the most successful coaches in college football history, Osborne's Cornhuskers had a combined record of 255-49-3 from 1973-1997. They won or shared 13 conference titles, went to bowls in each of his 25 seasons and won three national championships in his final four seasons. Osborne reached 200 victories and 250 victories quicker than any major college head football coach and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.
