I wasn't talking about the brawl.... It was the double bird to everyone in the Big House as he was leaving that I thought might get him suspended for BIG 10 Championship Game.



I thought it was hilarious. What rule would he be breaking that would get him suspended for it? conduct detrimental to the team? I can get on board with that, but then my question would be is he being suspended for the act or because the act was caught on camera? If it's only an issue because everybody saw it on camera, then idk, that's a weak reason to suspend someone.

I was thinking more along the line of the BIG 10 Conference suspending him, not the school... I could see Delaney wanting to come down hard on it.


Marcus Hall will not be further reprimanded by the big 10 for his finger flicking as he left the field

Big Ten Conference Agreement 10.01 states in part that ?The Big Ten Conference expects all contests involving a member institution to be conducted without compromise to any fundamental element of sportsmanship? [including] integrity of the competition, civility toward all, and respect, particularly toward opponents and officials. The conference office also issued a public reprimand of the Ohio State football coaching staff for failing in its duty to effectively manage the process of escorting an ejected student-athlete from the playing field to the locker room.

Additionally, the Conference reviewed video of the incident that took place during the second quarter of the game and has concluded that the officials managed the situation properly and ejected the correct players for their actions. NCAA football playing rules provide that these players were to be disqualified for the remainder of the game since their ejections for fighting occurred during the first half of the contest. The officials and coaching staffs from both institutions did a good job of containing the situation once it started. As bad as it was, we?re fortunate the incident did not escalate any further. More can, and should, be done by both coaching staffs in the future to prevent similar incidents from detracting from this rivalry.

The Big Ten Conference considers this matter concluded and will have no further comment.

Also, Pelini will be fined $10,000 for his actions

The Big Ten office today issued a public reprimand of Nebraska football head coach Bo Pelini for violating the Big Ten Sportsmanship Policy following Nebraska?s game against Iowa on Nov. 29, 2013. In addition, the conference announced that the institution has been fined $10,000 as a result of the violation.

The Big Ten determined that Pelini?s postgame comments regarding officials were in violation of Big Ten Conference Agreement 10.01, which states in part that ?The Big Ten Conference expects all contests involving a member institution to be conducted without compromise to any fundamental element of sportsmanship. Such fundamental elements include integrity of competition, civility toward all, and respect, particularly toward opponents and officials.? Coaches are teachers as well, and there is an expectation that they set the example for student-athletes and others in areas of sportslike conduct.

?The University of Nebraska embraces and supports the Big Ten Conference?s Sportsmanship Policy,? said Nebraska Director of Athletics Shawn Eichorst. ?In that regard, we were disappointed with Coach Pelini?s actions this past Friday regarding game officials. We immediately recognized and addressed the situation with Coach Pelini and the Big Ten Conference. In addition, Coach Pelini acknowledged and accepted responsibility for the inappropriateness of his actions and issued a public apology in advance of this reprimand.?

The Big Ten Conference considers this matter concluded and will have no further comment.
