According to multiple sources close to the situation, four Nebraska defensive players have been kicked off the team. Linebacker David Santos and Thomas Brown, cornerback Jonathan Rose, and defensive lineman Ernest Suttles are reportedly no longer members of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, according to sources.
Consumption of alcohol, marijuana, and paraphernalia, and a physical altercation are said to have taken place per sources, though there has been no official word yet from the university or coach Bo Pelini.
The news could be devastating for the Blackshirts, who were counting on Santos to step in and fill the void of the team losing all three of the starting linebackers from a year ago. We even had him in our X Factor list for the success of the Huskers last week.
If the rumors are true, Nebraska will have to break from their tradition of holding young players back. Nebraska has several young linebackers who will likely see the field in 2013.
