The Nebraska Cornhuskers and several other coaches and ADs in the Big Ten are not happy with the way Commissioner Tony Petitti is handling Michigan.
It seems like every day, the Michigan sign stealing/videotaping/sneaking onto the sidelines scandal gets just a little bit worse. It also seems the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the rest of the conference not located in Ann Arbor are a bit fed up with the silence coming from league offices.
SI reports that the Wolverines returning to the field after a week off has lit a fire under some of the school’s rivals. That’s why a Thursday afternoon meeting with every conference AD including the four incoming athletic directors from the Pac-12 took quite a bit longer than originally expected.
At issue is that most other schools are reportedly wanting Commissioner Tony Petitti to do … something. Unfortunately, the commish’s hands are mostly tied because an investigation into just what Stalions was doing, at whose direction and when has really just begun.
Some believe that Michigan should have to sit out the Big Ten Title Game, should they win the East. Others believe even a bowl bid is too good for the reported cheaters.
What is clear is that this thing isn’t going away. If Petitti had hoped he could just sit it out, it doesn’t appear that’s going to be an option.
Nebraska Cornhuskers turnover margin is epic
When the Nebraska Football team takes on Michigan State on Saturday morning, they’ll be entering the contest as one of the true oddities of the college football world this season.
The Huskers are the only Power 5 program that has a turnover margin of -4 or worse with a winning record. They are one of just three FBS programs contending for a bowl game who are that bad at turning the ball over.
Keisei coming back for the Nebraska Cornhuskers
Keisei Tominaga suffered a sprained ankle in the Nebraska Basketball exhibition game against Doane and immediately, the season flashed before the eyes of many a Husker fan. However, it’s possible things aren’t as dire as they looked on Sunday evening.
Head coach Fred Hoiberg addressed the media on Thursday afternoon, just four days before Nebrasketball’s season opener and talked about how Keisei is progressing.
"“Keisei is out of the boot. And he’s walking around pretty well. He’s actually responded after that first day. He was very sore the next morning, swollen. They put him in the boot but got him out of it quickly. So hopefully (Friday) we can get him moving a little bit and then see where it goes from there.”"
Hoiberg was careful to point out that the season is a long one and they’re going to take it extremely carefully. That likely means Nebraska Cornhuskers fans shouldn’t expect to see him much, if at all, on Monday against Lindenwood.
