If you know inside baseball when it comes to media coverage, then you probably have heard the term "5 o'clock news dump."
Typically, it's not-so-pleasant news. If you need put out a news release or statement and hope its gets lost over the weekend, 5 p.m. Friday is a pretty good landing spot.
So when the Nebraska Athletic Department released a tweet at 4:54 p.m. Friday that read 'BREAKING NEWS,' reporters and fans collectively stopped breathing for a second.
"The problems we have are so big. We need one small win."
And then Ander Christensen appeared.
The chicken wings, err, saucy nugs cavalier was back, and he — after interrupting Nebraska coach Scott Frost — has a message.
He wants football back, and now his celebrity status continues to soar.
Within 45 minutes of posting, the video had more than 100,000 views on Twitter.
