    Lincoln has a police department that is less than tolerant of downtown bars. So what do you you think the attitude in the police department is? Been to many games and Lincoln over the years and having watched the police in action with 40 some thing adults there are some bad apples who were not trained to work with people.
    Denard is a high profile individual he may be wrong.
    Denard may have been provoked too?
    What do you think recruits think? Maybe the police department can play football and pay the bills at the University.
    Just an opinion.
    You're reaching.

    If the basics of the report can be believed they were going to send him on his way 2 times. Seems they were being pretty reasonable.

    Why does the local media hate nebraska football? Identifying him as a Husker was COMPLETELY un-necessary! I mean his eligibility is exhausted!






    sarcasm alert.

    Talk about bad timing.

    Not even close. He wasn't going to sign for "millions" in the first place. He'll probably drop some but he'll still get drafted.

    I was pretty surprised to see him throw punches in the game. Now I am less so, but, pretty dissapointing nonetheless.

    If he went in the first round, it would be millions. I believe he was looking at no worse than late first round (but even if it was second and he dropped to third, it's huge).

    I just did a quick google.... in 2009 (probably more recent can be found, which would only add to it), the last pick in the first round received an $11.3 million contract ($6.1 million guaranteed, signing bonus). Only 5 picks later in the second round, $4.93 million ($2.15 million). Huge difference between the first and second round. Drop down to the beginning of the third round, and it's less than half that of the 5th pick of the second round. You don't have to fall far to cost yourself a ton of money.

    I feel bad for him. I know he made a bad decision (provoked or not), but let the person here that hasn't made mistakes step forward. I still appreciate all you have done for NU. Take care of this and then go kick butt the rest of your life.

    With the new labor agreement, those obscene first round salaries have gone bye-bye

    Not a smart move. I cannot understand why some of these kids work so hard to try and make the NFL then throw it away.

    Look on the bright side guys (if there is one), at least he didn't go all Scottie Baldwin on the cop.

    To have been through five years of higher education and do something as stupid as this is truly puzzling. To be so dedicated to a single purpose as to being a pro ball player and to flush dollars down the toilet at this stage means your focus isn't that great. Maybe it never was. Some people plain and simple should never consume alcohol. Dennard is plainly one of those people. A waste of education. Someone could have actually used the scholarship for something other than this, one would think. Maybe he can use this as a learning moment and walk away from the bottle, before he ends up penniless at forty as some do.
