So we enter Day No. 3 of the Marlon Lucky hospitalization and we don't know anything more on Wednesday night than we did on Monday afternoon. What is wrong with him and why is he still in the hospital?
I would like to know. I think everyone who follows Nebraska would like to know. There are few stories that I have heard, one in particular, that I tend to believe. But I will not speculate his condition due to the medical laws out there. Yet, the family statement has lead to more questions than answers. Define Illicit? What does that mean - illegal? Non- prescription?
Regardless, Nebraska all of a sudden has some serious issues with their running backs. Brandon Jackson is gone. Cody Glenn has a foot problem. Kenny Wilson was in the hospital for a knee condition and surgery. And now Lucky is in the hospital and his future at Nebraska is in doubt. The 2007 recruiting class has some nice backs but Callahan is not going to want to run with another true fresh. Especially since the team will have a 1 year player at Quarterback.
Jay Norvell has left for UCLA. John Blake has gone on to North Carolina. Many players have talked about relationships that they had with those 2 coaches. There a lot of questions out there right now for Nebraska and Spring practice will be watched very closely....at least, as closely as the media will be allowed to.
