1Saw this about 1 month ago after the aTm game.
Two or three different sources all report a general version of events as
1. Bo's meltdown against Taylor on Saturday night. All agree it was over a
cell phone. When Taylor was injured, he was taken to the A&M locker room
because that is where the X-Ray facility was. After being X-rayed and
cleared, rather than hurry and return to the team, Taylor left the medical
staff to walk all the way over to NU's locker room, retrieve his cell
phone, and have a conversation with his father. All told, Taylor and his
dad waste 10-20 minutes. Bo is pissed on two different levels. One, he
needs the kid back in the game and he's wasting time. Two, Bo has a very
explicit rule about cell phones in the locker room and on the field.
Evidently, Taylor has been busted for this kind of thing in the past.
Taylor comes back out on the field and the medical staff informs Bo of
Taylor's activities. You saw the conversation that ensued on national TV.
Not pleasant. There are several 'lip-reader' interpretations out there.
All have to do with a phone call.
2. Upon returning to Lincoln, the next day finds Taylor's dad having shown
up on campus. He's pissed. This has happened with Taylor's dad in the past
and Bo pretty much hates dealing with it. They have a meeting with Taylor,
Taylor's dad, and Pelini. Pelini explains that Taylor has violated team
rules and will be suspended for a game. Evidently, Taylor's dad completely
loses it, stating that it is their intention to transfer from NU to
somewhere else and that calling it a 'suspension' will keep teams from
wanting his son. Bo says, "Fine, call it whatever you want, but your son
isn't playing on Friday." The meeting doesn't end well. Rumors swirl like
crazy Sunday night that Taylor has quit the team. Technically, he hasn't,
but there is enough truth in there to know that something has happened.
3. The next day, Taylor shows up with a walking boot on his foot to
practice. Him and his dad want him to wear the boot so that people will
believe that he is not playing this week because of his ankle, not because
he's 'suspended'. As a 'screw you' to Pelini, however, Taylor wears the
boot on the wrong foot, causing all sorts of confusion and strange
questions from the press. Taylor, in his odd way, thinks this is all some
kind of funny joke.
As this little stunt makes its way through the team, former players such
as Phillip Dillard start piping up via Twitter and Facebook, describing
their thoughts on Taylor and his established history of stunts like this,
neglect for team rules, his over-obsessive daddy, etc. Phil calls on the
Unity Council to dismiss Martinez from the team. Speculation is that
current players are the source of Dillard's anger.
What the 'inside' people are reporting is this: Taylor Martinez is gone
after this season. All agree this is the case. He may not play another
game for Nebraska. Taylor wants to be gone, Taylor's dad wants him gone,
and Bo and the rest of the team want him gone. Everyone within the
program, from the coaches to the players, are tired of his prima donna
attitude, helicopter dad, and general lack of respect for all things
Nebraska. The 'suspension' will never be publicized as such - but that's
what it is according to others.
2support bo pelini. this taylor cancer needs to be gone. he's not that good
