Nebraska Football Rumors: Tunnel Walk Makeover In The Works?


The Tunnel Walk has been a Nebraska Football staple since 1994. The pregame festivities have been pomp, pageantry, the occasional song fans didn’t know the words to and the Tunnel Walk ever since.

The Alan Parsons Project’s Sirius may have been heard for the last time before Nebraska’s loss to Iowa last season. Nothing’s been made official yet, but there are some interesting movements being made that cause magnifying glasses to pop out.

Allegedly, a survey was sent out to gauge fan’s game day experience as a whole.

We may be seeing some results of that survey sooner than later.

Complaints about Memorial Stadium’s sound system are also apparently being addressed. Where does the Tunnel Walk come into play in all this?

Chris Pankonin, Video Production Specialist for HuskerVision, is familiar with how to work a crowd. He’s played music heard at Nebraska basketball, baseball and volleyball events.

He’ll now be working football games. You may not know Pankonin, but he’s a creative mind that could totally revamp the experience for everyone in attendance, including recruits.

For those of you getting your hopes up about AC/DC, Metallica, Johnny Cash or any of the standard suggestions introducing the Huskers, you’re likely to be let down. In fact, it wouldn’t shock me to hear all three stricken from the Memorial Stadium playlist.

What’s probable is a refreshing youth movement into 21st century music and culture. You may remember the teaser video for last year’s alternate uniforms.

If this is “So long, Sirius”, expect something similar to the above and a good amount of it.

      Disagree. Song is outdated. Time to change it up. I’d be all for “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash, but in reality we are going to opt for something that connects with recruits, and that’s the best route.
