    Just an old-timer here that can't understand an elite athlete running the risks that surround actions like this.

    I don't understand it either. But then again, I had no issues knocking back 8 or 10 the night before baseball games in college when we played at home. Of course I wasn't an elite athlete. I'm guessing I would have been better off smoking a joint, since I definitely would have gotten more sleep.

    Let's be real. Nebraska ain't wining a ship either.

    A full scholarship to the University of Nebraska is worth about $160,000 over four years. Future NFL contract is worth ?? Or a lifetime of earnings from enhanced job opportunities with an education and network from the University of Nebraska is worth about $2-3 Mil.

    Do the math. It ain't worth the risk.

    What risks? It’s decriminalized in Nebraska for first offense so he’ll likely pay a fine equivalent to a speeding ticket.

    What is he risking? As I just mentioned, in Nebraska marijuana is decriminalized for first offense so he’ll likely pay a fine equivalent to a speeding ticket.

    $$$$$$?

    I think smoking has cost some NFL draft picks money in recent years.

    1. Like who? I’m thinking there were a couple of folks in the first round with failed drug tests in college because of marijuana. Seems like you hear it all of the time now.

    2. He hasn’t played his first down as a freshman but people think he will end up in the NFL? I hope so but let’s see how he handles Big 10 competition before we have him drafted to the NFL.

    3. Again, the national view of marijuana is softening at a rapid pace. The NFL has at least 5 teams playing in legal recreational marijuana states and it is a matter of time before it is removed from restricted lists in all sports.

    Absolutely certain his Nebraska coaching staff are excited about a top recruit getting busted for weed before he even sees the dawn of his first gameday. Let's put a lot of trust in this guy, perhaps he even could be a team leader. Certainly he sets a good example of making quality decisions. Yep, never have to worry about him making wrong decisions or being caught up in compromising situations or less than desirable elements.

    Assuming that he learns a lesson and this is his only offense, some embarrassment, maybe he gets passed over in a job interview, some other low level costs.

    But, if he doesn't learn a lesson and continues down that path, he could lose a scholarship and other higher level costs. If he has real talent, he may get second and third chances, but eventually he could run out of them.

    There is zero risk if he doesn't partake.

    Better to teach the value that marijuana, alcohol, other drugs, and premature parenthood can derail future plans and dreams. Worst case scenario is getting kicked out of two schools and throwing away the opportunities you had in your grasp. It has happened.

    The big one that comes to mind is OT Tunsil who was being talked about as the possible overall #1 pick in the draft. Then the gas mask/bong photo comes out. Tunsil is not only not the overall #1, he isn't even the top OT. He drops to the 3rd OT drafted. That weed smoking photo cost him a lot of money.

    Character was a point of emphasis by many teams in this year's draft and smoking weed is a negative on character. If he never gets to the NFL, many businesses could very well see this incident as a negative as they consider job candidates.

    Let me put it this way. This isn't nearly as big an issue today, but I don't see anything positive for him from this incident.
