AUDIO OF THE HUSKERS’ VISIT is contained in the same trove of White House tapes that contributed to Nixon's downfall in the Watergate scandal. Recorder hum and other noise make the quality dicey, but here are a few of the clearer segments:

Nixon on O-line play

 

Nixon on virtue of sports

 

Nixon & Devaney on next season, juco athletes

 

Nixon sizing up players
