The really ugly situation involves offensive lineman Andy Christensen, who found himself in trouble at....hold on, 1 guess...THE BRASS RAIL and was so worked up that it allegedly took seven or eight of Lincoln's finest to finally pin him down. Wow, who knew that somebody had that much anger pent up inside of them about Callahan leaving? Bond was set at a whopping $500,000. Uhm, isn't going to the Rail a bad idea for ANY current Husker?
Here's how much goodwill Pelini has in Nebraska. A caller to an Omaha radio station actually had the nerve to call in -- and really, get through -- and suggest that Christensen's sort of enthusiasm at the Rail is what the Huskers have been missing. The radio hosts immediately dumped the caller, to their credit, and said, "That's probably the worst call in the short history of this show."
But just as Pelini was ready to nip the Christensen story in the bud and get his game on to see The Boss, three current Huskers were mixing up their own trouble. It turns out they were out with two former Husker players, one of whom was...again, this is about as predictable as the Brass Rail here, Maurice Purify.
Hopefully somebody's suggested to the Boss that he play "State Trooper" from the Nebraska album on Friday night and dedicate it to Pelini.
