Nebraska coach Bo Pelini indicated through an athletic department spokesman Monday morning that sophomore Aaron Green has been released from his scholarship.

The short statement was emailed out around 9:25 a.m. Reads like this: Pelini has confirmed that Green has been “given permission to look at other schools to continue his college career.”

  1. third-down backs aren’t that valuable when the offense’s QB can’t throw.

      Coach Boo Boo’s way of getting another scholarship……….. sort of like Alabama…….but they man up and tell the kid straight out…………Son you’ve gotta leave….where as Boo Boo just sits him and let’s him rot………
      Real passion here……..

    C’mon we all saw this coming, i predicted Jamal, and Aaron would transfer at seasons end.
    I’m thinking Pelini asked Green to play DB.
    Green has seen the writing on the wall two years behind a situationally challanged QB.
    How can Pelini deny his request?

      Really? Two years?

  3. Dos Passos says:

    Just another instant-gratification dude. I’m disappointed he isn’t man enough to stick around and work his way to the top.

      You know this how? No… it couldn’t possibly be another answer. A top recruit transfers out of Nebraska… and it’s the recruit’s fault. Typical low rent thinking.

      1. BigFRed says:

        Doesn’t sound like you know either.

    If this were the corporate world Bo would go as well. How may blue chip athletes have to leave or turn down scholarships before the real problem of coaching is identified and addressed ?

    1. TNHusker says:

      Bo should have given him more carries, Aaron’s going to be good somewhere else. He should’ve wait til his turn though, also it’s to much hype on Burkhead.

      1. NUCORNDEVIL says:

        True’er words could have never been said, when you promise a recruit you will play him his first year so he will sign, don’t just give him 10 carries.
        I know, I know, it’s a ‘process.’

    No one is a bigger Aaron Green fan than Aaron Green. Dude is selfish. It hurts but NU is better off.
