WHoahhhhhh.... what?! What did I miss? Wha wha what?!
This is all i could find:

Big Red Today, Nov. 11

2:55 p.m.: Nebraska just announced that senior linebacker Cody Glenn has been suspended indefinitely from football team for an unspecified violation of team rules.

The announcement came in a press release from NU that said coach Bo Pelini and the Huskers would have no further comment on the matter.

Glenn, a converted I-back from Rusk, Texas, has started nine games and ranks third on the team with 51 tackles. His six tackles for loss rank fourth on the team.

We'll have more on this after practice tonight.

Thanks, i failed at putting a link to the news story, im too new at this.
No worries Tan, you broke the story! That's worth 100 Husker points! No cash value, but you can trade them in for 1,000,000 Colorado Buffalo Biscuits!

No seriously, good job, and welcome to my favorite little Husker Spot on the web.
Linebacker Glenn suspended from team

Tuesday, Nov 11, 2008 - 08:15:31 pm CST

No doubt No. 34 would have been among those wearing a Blackshirt on Tuesday afternoon.

But Cody Glenn wasn’t to be seen.

What seemed a ho-hum Husker Tuesday was shaken in mid afternoon by a statement from Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini saying the senior linebacker is indefinitely suspended from the program for violating team rules.

The two-sentence statement ended with Pelini saying that he, the remainder of the coaching staff and players would have no further comment on the matter.

No specific reason was given. Glenn’s name has not appeared on any recent city or campus arrest reports.

“I have no clue. I just heard about it,” said Glenn’s high school coach, Wayne Mahaffey, when reached by the Journal Star Tuesday afternoon. “I have no clue what’s going on. I wish I did. I’m puzzled by it.”

Bo Pelini does not usually speak with the media after practices on Tuesdays, and this one was no exception.

Defensive coordinator Carl Pelini answered questions about practice and the Blackshirts, which were handed out to starting defenders on Tuesday.

But he wasn’t going to answer any questions on Glenn.

“We’re not commenting on that situation just for the privacy of the young man,” Carl Pelini said. “It was a violation of team rules and that's going to be kept in-house.”

Pushed with another question on Glenn, the defensive coordinator said: “There’s lots of rules that cause suspension. Again, let’s move on to another topic.”

Glenn did practice Monday, and even did some interviews with a handful of reporters when it was over.

“Everybody understands this is one of those classic trap games,” he said of upcoming foe Kansas State, seemingly nothing the matter.

But now the Huskers, already thin at linebacker with an ankle injury to Phillip Dillard, must do without the man who had started nine of 10 games this season at WILL linebacker.

Despite missing the Texas Tech game with an injury, Glenn is third on the team in tackles with 51. He has six tackles for loss, four pass breakups and four quarterback hurries.

“We’ve got guys at that WILL linebacker position we’ve been working. And we just move on,” Carl Pelini said. “We play the guys who have earned the playing time.”

NU likely won’t use many three-linebacker sets against KSU. Tyler Wortman is likely to start at the MIKE spot, and Carl Pelini mentioned Blake Lawrence, Latravis Washington and Thomas Grove as guys who could see more action at the WILL spot with Glenn suspended.

“I think Blake Lawrence did a heckuva job in that WILL spot against Kansas,” Carl Pelini said. “I feel confident that our linebacker play is going to be just fine.”

Still, Glenn’s suspension cast a black cloud over what had been one of the better individual stories of this Husker season.

The native of Rusk, Texas, spent three years toiling for playing time at running back before switching in the spring to linebacker.

It was a gamble that paid off, Glenn only needing a few practices before he was earning reps with the No. 1 unit.

In July, Glenn told the Journal Star he had never been so excited for a Husker season as this one.

“Oh, I’m amped about it,” he said. “I’ve never felt this good going into a season healthwise, confidencewise, everything.”

Man, I wonder what he did. I really like watching him kick ass, and his was a fun story to keep watching him progress. What a way to put a damper on the handing out of Black Shirts.
for sure.....glenn should have been the 1st one with the blackshirt....wonder if that effected the other guys, however technically we have our blackshirts back! lets see what they can do. They have a big rep to live up too.
Yes they do. Our boys are back in black! Now they need to prove it.
this is a definite disappointment. If anyone hears what he did - please post as I'm sure we all want to know!
My wife and I are just quessing, we might think his grades in school might be effecting his playing time? That's al we could think of.
I'm efforting this right now. I have some friends in the Athletic Dept. who might be able to tell me something.
To me this has to be a trust issue. Bo Pelini made a decision after a violation had been made. Part of the learning process is making mistakes and taking responsibility for them. If the Coaching staff want to protect Cody Glenn's privacy so be it. It would be nice to have Glenn make a statement saying this is what is going on to all the Husker fans, rather than have rumors fly.

If Glenn is able to come back I will welcome him, and if he can't come back I wish him luck for his future.

I am sure that Bo Pelini has a zero tolerance policy, and no matter how important of a player you are you still have to follow the rules.

In any event I still am supporting the Players, Coaches, and Athletic staff. GBR!
