  • Ronnie Green and Trev Alberts issue statement on conference alliance Saturday, August 21, 2021

    We've all been waiting for when the other conferences might react to the change of Oklahoma and Texas moving to the SEC at some point in the future. Would there be another round of expansion? Would the Big 12 continue to get raided? Who makes the next move?

    Then silence. A lot of silence.

    The Athletic reported recently that the heads of the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten and Pac-12 were beginning to find footing in a mutual agreement to line up their votes and potential for non-conference scheduling behind each other to aggressively protect their interests in college athletics.

  • UNL, World-Herald join to examine racism in Nebraska Sunday, August 30, 2020

    The Aug. 23 police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, amplifies our national soul-searching set off by the killing of George Floyd in May under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer. Many Nebraskans are pondering what it means to be racist, how systemic racism uniquely shows itself in Nebraska — and what they must do to create change.

    These are questions also being asked at the state’s flagship public university and its oldest and largest newspaper. As leaders of those institutions, we must acknowledge they have their own histories of exclusion, discrimination and misguided assumptions. Our institutions, however, have both the resources and the obligation to open this important dialogue and guide it toward lasting change for our state and the people who live, learn and work here.

    Between them, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (founded in 1869) and the Omaha World-Herald (founded in 1885) have 285 years of experience informing and educating Nebraskans and fostering dialogue about the critical issues facing our state and our nation.
