Name one player Nebraska can’t afford to lose coming into the 2010 football season. If you’re like us, you just said “Niles Paul” (actually, Jack muttered something about Curenski Gilleylan first). In any case, Niles was cited Friday night for what could be his second MIP in 14 months (and also, uhhh, de-possessing that alcohol on a fence). Remember BoPelini’s zero-tolerance policy on alcohol? Well, it seems that this alleged second offense was so intolerable that it merited the dreaded ‘handled internally’ treatment. Steve Sipple joins us Wednesday at 7:15 from the Big XII meetings to discuss this incident as well as Big XII President Dan Beebe’s ultimatums toward Nebraska and Missouri.
What you missed:
-Jack & John remembered Gary Coleman after his untimely death this weekend, which led to widespread memories of those times when certain sitcoms were deemed “A Very Special Episode”, including this incredibly weird Diff’rent Strokes, which forever affected the way we all look at both Gordon Jump (of WKRP fame) and bike shop owners.
-For the second time in as many iterations of the “Sex and the City” movie franchise, John Bishop boldly proclaimed he would not see the movie, and then within the next 48 hours, he went and saw it. In honor of his apparent inability to resist the franchise, Jack suggested John give his movie review on a scale of “5 cosmos” from now on. To hear Jack take John to task for his wishy-washiness, and to hear John’s interesting wardrobe choice for the chick flick, listen here.
–The guys thought it surprising that the Game & Parks commissioners decided to overturn the ban on alcohol by an overwhelming margin even though the public testimony and email response to the G&P main office seemed to indicate that there’s significant public support for the ban. Also, it was reported that teenagers who testified were seen crying as they exited the hearing after the vote was taken. Seriously?
