About Mike

Mike Schaefer is part of the three-person group that makes up Husker247. Schaefer handles much of the football recruiting coverage on the site, while also helping with daily beat and game coverage. He’s been with 247Sports since 2011 and prior to that covered Nebraska football and high school athletics for the Columbus Telegram after college and for the Daily Nebraskan before receiving his Bachelor’s of Journalism from Nebraska in 2010.

Schaefer isn’t shy with his opinions. Examples can be found while he’s spouting off as a radio host, arguing with others as a recruiting reporter or holding firm as a crackpot who spends far too much time on Twitter. Need a sample? College athletes should be able to transfer without penalty at least once, conferences should do away with divisions and why hasn’t the NL started using a DH yet?

Experience those opinions and more every afternoon on The Recruiting Hour — Nebraska’s first show devoted to Nebraska recruiting coverage — from 2 to 3 PM on 93.7 The Ticket and TheTicketFM.com
