Before we all go calling for his head, his blood alcohol level was .115 and the legal limit is .08. For a guy that weighs about 350 lbs, that's nothing. He wasn't swerving, he made a turn without a turn signal at 1:45 am. In other words the time when cops are looking for people who have been drinking.

Does this excuse it? No, but keep it in perspective.
You know that some people will. His already being called Bake WineCooler. In my opinion, if he uses his turn signal, he makes it home clean and clear. He's of drinking age, so that's not a problem, and his huge, so .115 is nothing. I'm sure he didn't feel impaired, when you consider his size and weight. The law is the law, and I get that, but this is a little lame.
I heard on the radio this morning that he was driving downtown in Lincoln with his head lights off too. Dumb mistakes, but he'll learn and be fine.
I got ya. I'm still not calling for his head though. When I was 18-21 not sure how old, I drove from Lincoln to Omaha around 3am, not after waking up early mind you, and fell asleep at the wheel. Luckily no one was hurt, and I didn't wreck the car, but STUPID none the less. We all make mistakes, only difference for mine was, I wasn't going to play in the bowl game either way.

As if we need him to beat UW!  This is not a bowl game, it is a practice game.

 

Let's face it.  Kids screw up.  No excuses.

They do indeed.  Even yours I bet.

Who's the backup for the guy?

Crick is just going to split in two and handle both spots.

I actually thought this was Crick's last season.  I'm syked to know he's coming back.  He's going to tear head's off.

Moore is pretty good.  We should be fine.
