    I would probably make the time to go if I lived in Nebraska. Victory lap for Moos.

    Your Most Fun Time At A Huskers Game

    I'd describe the last 20 as lacking the exhilaration of being in the hunt for a NC. I remember T. Martinez talking about competing for a NC before season start. I just shook my head and knew it wasn't possible. We also don't have the same caliber of players making extraordinary plays which was a lot of fun to watch in the glory days. The defense in '09 was fun to watch in that regard. You never knew when TO might run a very creative trick play which was fun. I hope Frost brings a fun factor to the offense but I think we need some more playmakers before it's really FUN..

    It does seem unusually quiet around here.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    Mo needs a better attorney than Lewis's first So Lewis was facing a Class 4 felony, second degree assault charge and ended up pleading guilty to third degree assault. http://www.dailycamera.com/news/boulder/ci_25390118/alex-lewis-ex-cu-buffs-lineman-sentenced-45 I forgot he served 45 days in jail. Turns out Frost commenting about Mo's grades is relevant to the situation: Hopefully Mo can beat the felony rap and if he gets jail time he can do it next summer.

    Crab legs wasn’t charged on the sex assault incident. I don’t believe players get suspended for being investigated.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    If someone were to look into past cases where student athletes got into serious legal trouble they were probably kicked off the team and no longer NCAA athletes. Mo’s case is kind of strange since he’s facing a new law and he probably violated the child pornography law but isn’t a child pornographer. Once the legal process plays out it could get interesting based on the severity of punishment whether Mo can stay on the team. I get a feeling from Frost’s comments that if (worst case) Mo gets jail time then he’ll have no choice but to kick him off the team.

    Too much work. I guess I'm not that curious after all

    You're not helping. Alright, so to satisfy my curiousity about something I assumed nobody would have data on or care about, does @Huskers93-97 show up on the leaderboard? P.S. Ever since your status update, I noticed you limit your posts to humorous things that you know will get +1. I think you're a total rep:post ho!

    It’s probably only a handful of posters. I seem to remember @Toe mentioning his percentage in a status update and it was also remarkable. I believe @knapplc replied and his was pretty good. I’m curious if someone has the data on this.

    I wonder how many posters have a higher percentage than you.

    He should do a football oriented Jerry Springer format.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    I think I know what you are implying but how can he do this legitimately? He's a college student and I don't think his family is wealthy. These are questions the NCAA might ask. I've been thinking of ways for Mo to get money to pay for an attorney. It makes sense that someone might loan him say $50K if Mo agrees to pay back $100K when he turns pro, so the "collateral" he's putting up is pro potential. I don't think that somebody can be associated with UNL in any way without running afoul of some NCAA rule. A CA attorney that is a Nebraska alum willing to handle the case pro bono would probably be considered an impermissible benefit. Would the NCAA allow Mo to set up a GoFundMe for his defense? I have no idea how a normal person goes about getting money to pay for defending themselves against a criminal charge but it seems like being a NCAA athlete could restrict the possibilities.

    He's been out on bail. Since part of today's hearing was to review the bail amount I suppose the judge could have raised the amount and if Mo couldn't pay it then he would get locked up. To play it safe, Mo should check out some UNL distant learning courses for fall semester. https://www.omaha.com/huskers/football/husker-running-back-maurice-washington-pleads-not-guilty-in-california/article_07e17786-3ab8-50ed-86d9-caf251438b6e.html

The next trial on May 13 is to determine which lawyer will represent him essentially forcing him to find and pay for an attorney in CA. I'd advise borrowing money or selling assets in order to get good legal representation. I firmly believe "lawyering up" helps when trying to reach a plea agreement and sadly the severity of punishment received is inversely proportional to how much money you have and are willing to expend to fight in court. I don't think his prospects are good if he is represented by a public defender.
