What Callahan was upset about was the crowd booing his team for kicking the field goal when OU had their starters in, calling time outs and trying to score up by 30pts with 40 seconds left in the game......
As for the "assault"...... LINK
NU coaches call pregame collision an accident
WORLD-HERALD NEWS SERVICE
NORMAN, Okla. - An Oklahoma newspaper called it an altercation. Nebraska is calling it an accident.
What happened during pregame activities of Saturday night's NU-Oklahoma game is still a mystery. The Daily Oklahoman reported Sunday that NU offensive lineman Darren DeLone was involved in a reported sideline altercation with a member of the Ruf/Neks, an OU spirit group. The report said DeLone attacked Adam Merritt in the northeast corner of Owen Field during pregame warmups after being heckled by members of the Ruf/Neks.
Citing witnesses in the student section and on the sideline, the paper reported DeLone head- butted Merritt in the face with his helmet and shoved him into the 3-foot brick wall.
Nebraska Coach Bill Callahan issued a statement on the incident, calling it a collision.
Said Callahan: "Several members of the Husker football team, including at least two coaches, witnessed the collision and immediately summoned a member of Nebraska's medical staff to assist. Players and coaches spoke with officials immediately following the game.
"All those involved with the University of Nebraska Athletic Department and its football team are sorry the accident happened and wish the young man a quick and full recovery."
Merritt reportedly was taken to Norman Regional Hospital after having several teeth knocked out and suffering facial lacerations. Merritt was treated and released from the hospital late Saturday.
OU's campus police declined to comment Sunday on any investigation. He referred questions to a sergeant who would be on duty today.
DeLone played a reserve role in Saturday night's 30-3 loss to the Sooners.
Personally, I wasn't there, I don't know what happened. But why are fans on the field getting in players faces anyhow? (this goes for the Missouri incident last year too).
Looking forward to the NU-CU game. A win by NU and Nebraska keeps their bowl streak alive. Funny thing is, I'll be in Denver during the game.......
the ruff nexs are kinda like cheer leaders, they are on the field for every game....they are at every basketball game too.
sounds like NU can't handle their suckatutude
