Happy Birthday wish from Tom Osborne, former Nebraska coach:
"(Happy Birthday to) a competitor but still a good friend. The Nebraska-Oklahoma game was never a bitter rivalry, and this was due in large part to the fact that Barry and I were always able to keep the game in a proper perspective."
Switzer and Osborne
Switzer and Osborne were the fiercest of rivals on the field, but off the field they struck up a strong relationship that's still alive. OKLAHOMAN ARCHIVE PHOTO
