    From Someone in NU Administration

    That was the subject title in an e-mail I received this morning from my CEO. He is a diehard college football fan... with kNU his team... He wouldn't say where it came from... but I do believe he knows quite a bit.... anyway after reading this it does make sense with last weeks game... and if true... which Martinez shows up to play... one who just wants to leave or one auditioning for a new team

    ***************
    Subject: Fwd: From Someone In NU Administration
    > Importance: Low
    >
    >
    > > > 1. Bo's meltdown against Taylor on Saturday night. All agree it was
    over a cell phone. When Taylor was injured, he was taken to the A&M locker
    room because that is where the X-Ray facility was. After being X-rayed and
    cleared, rather than hurry and return to the team, Taylor left the medical
    staff to walk all the way over to NU's locker room, retrieve his cell phone,
    and have a conversation with his father. All told, Taylor and his dad waste
    10-20 minutes. Bo is ****** on two different levels. One, he needs the kid
    back in the game and he's wasting time. Two, Bo has a very explicit rule
    about cell phones in the locker room and on the field. Evidently, Taylor has
    been busted for this kind of thing in the past.
    > > >
    > > > Taylor comes back out on the field and the medical staff informs Bo of
    Taylor's activities. You saw the conversation that ensued on national TV.
    Not pleasant. There are several 'lip-reader' interpretations out there. All
    have to do with a phone call.
    > > >
    > > > 2. Upon returning to Lincoln, the next day finds Taylor's dad having
    shown up on campus. He's ******. This has happened with Taylor's dad in the
    past and Bo pretty much hates dealing with it. They have a meeting with
    Taylor, Taylor's dad, and Pelini. Pelini explains that Taylor has violated
    team rules and will be suspended for a game. Evidently, Taylor's dad
    completely loses it, stating that it is their intention to transfer from NU
    to somewhere else and that calling it a 'suspension' will keep teams from
    wanting his son. Bo says, "Fine, call it whatever you want, but your son
    isn't playing on Friday." The meeting doesn't end well. Rumors swirl like
    crazy Sunday night that Taylor has quit the team. Technically, he hasn't,
    but there is enough truth in there to know that something has happened.
    > > >
    > > > 3. The next day, Taylor shows up with a walking boot on his foot to
    practice. Him and his dad want him to wear the boot so that people will
    believe that he is not playing this week because of his ankle, not because
    he's 'suspended'. As a 'screw you' to Pelini, however, Taylor wears the boot
    on the wrong foot, causing all sorts of confusion and strange questions from
    the press. Taylor, in his odd way, thinks this is all some kind of funny
    joke.
    > > >
    > > > As this little stunt makes its way through the team, former players
    such as Phillip Dillard start piping up via Twitter and Facebook, describing
    their thoughts on Taylor and his established history of stunts like this,
    neglect for team rules, his over-obsessive daddy, etc. Phil calls on the
    Unity Council to dismiss Martinez from the team. Speculation is that current
    players are the source of Dillard's anger.
    > > >
    > > > What the 'inside' people are reporting is this: Taylor Martinez is
    gone after this season. All agree this is the case. He may not play another
    game for Nebraska. Taylor wants to be gone, Taylor's dad wants him gone, and
    Bo and the rest of the team want him gone. Everyone within the program, from
    the coaches to the players, are tired of his prima donna attitude,
    helicopter dad, and general lack of respect for all things Nebraska. The
    'suspension' will never be publicized as such - but that's what it is
    according to others.

    Lolz


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Haha no, do you think I could stand it over there? Maybe I should have been more clear. I got the exact same email from a co-worker as the OP. I just copied and pasted it over here to get everyones reaction. I just got the email yesterday where it seems the OP got it today.
