  • I got a story to tell

    So I'm a Journalism major at the University of Nebraska, and I write for a student run satirical newspaper.

    Recently, we ran a story of mine on the cover about how Carl Pelini (Bo Pelini's brother and Husker defensive coordinator) is cheating on his wife with a prominent booster's daughter-in-law (which rumors have been rolling around the internet for a while).

    The story got a lot of **** from people who thought we were posing a threat to the football team, but we gained a ****-ton of readership because of it.

    Regardless, this story ran about a month and a half ago, but something strange happened today.

    I was walking to my dorm room and noticed an envelope taped to my door that had my name written on it. Curious, I opened it to find a single piece of paper with three lines typed in the upper left hand corner.

    It read:

    "Alex,

    Please call Bo at (insert phone number here)

    Thanks!"

    So I called the number and it went to voicemail, and the voice on the answering machine was none other than the head coach of the football team, Bo Pelini.

    Immediately, my hands started shaking, I dropped my phone and hit the floor. There are only two possible conclusion I came to:

    A) Being that I was just given the phone number of the most prominent man in the state of Nebraska.

    or

    B) Someone is really looking to **** with me.

    So I left a voicemail saying I got the note and to call me back tomorrow.

    Either way, I thought this story was interesting enough to spread with all ya'll.

    Oh, and here is a link to the story that got me into some shady dealings with the athletic department.

            People in Nebraska (I'm not from Nebraska) are kind of obsessed with Husker football. Anything that could be viewed as negative for the team is heavily heavily frowned upon.

              That is funny. People in MS worship Ole Miss (or State) but we they have a lot of articles making fun of Ole Miss football, people usually don't care either. Snead catches a lot of **** in our paper.

                    Did I just read it right and did a journalism major start an article by writing himself into his story? The way I was taught journalism that's a no-no.

                      #1 - journalism, at least in the US, is dead

                      #2 - in fairness, this paper appears to be a home-grown Nebraska version of The Onion, so standard journalism rules probably don't apply

                        I'm guessing it's the hidden option C: You've made up this story in hopes of getting more people to read your stuff.

                          I suspect you are right.

                              Doesn't matter, there's a few things that a journalism major shouldn't do. It's the kiss of death for any article. Never mention "I" "me" or "my".
