Nebraska's coach applied to lead student section

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) It looks as if Nebraska coach Tim Miles will not get his wish of being the leader of the ''Red Zone'' student section at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Miles sent an application for the job to the Iron N club, which organizes student sections for the university's teams. He announced Tuesday on Twitter he didn't get the job and is ''totally hurt.'' He also posted his application.

The 48-year-old Miles checked ''senior or above'' for his year in college. The third-year coach wrote he had attended every home and away game for two years and sneaks into arenas early so he gets a front-row seat.

The tongue-in-cheek application is the latest stunt by the fun-loving Miles to drum up interest in the 21st-ranked Cornhuskers.

A message was left with the Iron N.
