Kent Pavelka, one of the great Husker play by play announcers once said, "If you are not a Nebraska fan you can't understand it. If you are a Nebraska fan you can't explain it”.
Highly talented Producer/Director Tweedy has done a remarkable job doing what Pavelka said can’t be done using the words of Husker fans from coast to coast (several scenes were shot at the OC Tavern). Tweedy and his crew spent the last two years shooting this self financed film which includes interviews with many of the legends associated with the Husker program including Tom Osborne, Johnny Rogers, Eric Crouch, Barry Switzer and Tommy Frasier to name just a few.
This is a quality film that that stands on its own as a documentary whether you are a Husker fan or not. If you have friends and neighbors that just don’t get why you are such a huge Husker fan, bring them along and they just might see the light. “Through These Gates” is a great prelude to the 2013 season opener against Wyoming on August 31st. Proceeds of this premiere benefit the Californians for Nebraska Scholarship Fund.
