    OK, so now it becomes a wait and see deal to find out what happens to the guy. Is he kicked off the team? Is he suspended? Is he allowed back on the team pending the outcome of the trial? Back when Dr Tom was running the show, this would have been swept under the rug. Let's see how Cally deals with it.

    I really don't know. It's uncharted waters for Callahan. I won't insult the man by comparing him to Tom Osborne, who we all know would make sure Purify didn't miss one down.

    unless there is evidence of self-defense he needs to be cut.

    local radio is having a field-day right now..... one local jock said the NC's are just around the corner since the thuggery seems to be back...... pathetic thing to say but not far off the mark. We will get the first true test of Cally's spine here IMO. the best receiver on the team by far, maybe an all B12 1st or 2nd teamer. this will be interesting.

    and good luck trying to find more than two paragraphs in any of the local media outlets. a call-in to the same local jock claiming he was an eye witness said he was provoked but the paper makes me think he was not..... and that caller is wearing prescription husker vision eyewear..... developing.

    No chance he's kicked off the team for this. Also, this is no indication that a NC is around the corner. Hell, he didn't even use a firearm.

    reports are still sketchy..... per another local sports talk, another eye witness backs up the first, this dude was a bouncer at another bar, he is known for being a hard-ass and a loudmouth (I have met several bouncers who do fit that description). the two had a history from another bar where this guy refused entry to one of MP's boyz. Seems Purify passed by him in this bar and thats when the trouble started, the two got to jawing, the girlfriend was degrading him, jock this , jock that.... the bouncer boyfriend was nose to nose and Purify pushed him off "very hard" into a wall, the guy comes up swinging, Purify throws him over a table and basically whips his ass, the girl was in the cross fire when the BF came up swinging she was in MP's face, she did get hit but it is not clear who connected or if it might have been an elbow or shoulder, close quarter fight in a crowded bar.

    the resisting arrest is the hook here, IMO this would blow-over/cover-up were it not for the RA charge, seems MP was very emotionally upset by the time the cops arrived, seems this lady was really saying some "provocational", personal things??? still developing..... don't even know if the radio version of this is even true yet.... I have seen both types of people before, the jock with the chip on his shoulder and the loudmouth bouncer with the chip on his shoulder because he was not good enough to be a jock or likes the power trip of bouncing... as for the lady, I will not comment.

    according to this "eyewitness" Purify did make first contact but not in the form of a punch......

    Meh, sounds like most bar fights. If Waylon's account is true, then this isn't much.

    I gotta disagree with you there. This is exactly the kind of thing that these kids need to have drummed into their heads to avoid at all costs. Walk away. Don't provoke. Don't retaliate under any circumstances. Know that when you're out in public, especially in Lincoln or Omaha, you are a target. If the bouncer is a prick, just leave. I know that's hard to do, but you HAVE to do it. If Cally is smart (or has a spine), he'll take appropriate action.

    Let's see what he does.

    The RA is the real problem here, if he is charged you gotta do something, short of that this will blow over.

    I think that remains to be seen. I would say at a minimum he should be suspended for Fall practice and miss a few games to start the year. He's being charged with assault, after all.

    Same old lame post as normal I see you must have this on copy and paste.

    If the story actually happened like is being reported I think there is no way that he can't be punished in some way. If he did in fact hit the girl and start the fight he needs to be kicked off the team. This **** can't slide because these kids (all over sports) are under the impression that if they are good enough they can get away with anything. Obviously none of us are ever going to know the whole story and it's hard to believe the media anymore. Unless Purify comes out and says what happened we'll never know.

    bar fights: any athlete that is dumb enough to get into one is crazier than a pet ho on drugs.

    resisting arrest: i do not care how "emotional" you are, needing a hanky, your mommy and warm fuzzies from oprah, you do NOT resist arrest. ever.

    the Y chromosome: ensures the above happens all the time.

    :lol: way to go moe. :thumbsup:

    i actually went over to huskerpedia and saw a more balanced account. a few details that seem to be glossed over in your story:

    1. the bouncer works at another bar. the incident in question happened over a week ago. the bouncer denied entry of one of moe's friends (for whatever reason) last week.
    2. i don't care if the bouncer has a rep for being a hardass, it is clear that he was sitting back enjoying himself when moe walks by.
    3. mo spouts off. that he started is clear from the comments from people there that night posted to the newspaper. the bouncer does not have to just sit there waylon and take it. he replies in kind.
    4. mo shoves the bouncer into the wall. he then gets the bouncer on a table and starts to choke him.
    5. mo also manages to hit the bouncers girlfriend in the face. i would go insane if some caveman were choking anyone i was with. apparently, i am more creative with bar props than the girl in question is. the least mo can expect at this point is a, "take your ****ing hands off my boyfriend." sorry if this makes mo emotional.
    6. when the police arrive it takes four grown men to get mo under control.

    when it comes down to it, mo should know he has a lot to lose, and it just might not be worth it to start something over an incident from a week before?

    i think people should be able to make appropriate decisions no matter who is on a power trip or provoking. you think mo was an angel going out of his way to flap his jaw at the bouncer?

    ok new for you....

    Moe was pissed because the girl was teasing him because of his fumble 12 seconds into the Big XII championship game that set the tone for another Sooner beat down of the little red of cornville.....:thumbsup:

    oh better yet..... I heard the bouncer was actually praising hillbilly throatslash as a great college coach, and moe took exception to that becauuse will all know hillbilly throatslash sucks as a head coach.... :lol:

    if it was just a bar fight with another asshole he would be a whole lot better off. its the hitting a girl and resisting arrest thats going to get him in serious trouble.

    it's really not that uncharted for Callahan. In Callahan's first season he kicked off All American bound center Richie Incognito off the team because he was being a complete jerk and distraction and breaking team rules left and right. This was at a time when O-Line was a huge weakness of ours at the time.

    I think regardless of what he does he's going to get hammered by people. If he doesn't punish Mo with what appears to be a stiff penalty, like if they decide to handle it internally, whatever that is, then he'll look like he just wants to win, and if he kicks him off the team, he'll look like a jerk. I mean after all, it's just a barfight.

    By the way, it's sounding more and more like she jumped into the fracas and was hit by a punch that was not meant for her, like a hockey ref trying to stop a fight.

    by the way, everyone should know that I'm not defending Mo at all here. He was really stupid for doing what he did. I'm just saying, it's a barfight is all.

    I tend to agree, I think he should sit the first 2 games if all it turns out to be is a bar fight. I don't see a reason to throw him off the team for that.
