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.
Why Niles, Why?
