Bubba Starling won't practice with Nebraska

Bo Pelini has said that top recruit Bubba Starling won't practice with the Nebraska football program until he decides his future plans.  Starling was drafted by the Kansas City Royals and will be offered millions of dollars to sign a professional baseball contract.  He is currently enrolled in summer classes and living in the dorms.

"He's got a lot of risk," Pelini said.  This seems a little contrary to Bo's comments earlier this summer when he said, "His advisers aren't running our football program."  Leaving a couple open spots on the 105 man roster to accommodate Starling's decision seems a like special treatment, but I suppose the circumstances warrant it.

In Starling's defense, I think he's done the best he possibly could with the decision he has to make.  He promised Nebraska he would be here, he's here and enrolled in summer classes.  The only thing he hasn't done is fulfilled  the promise of being on the football team.  I wonder who ends up paying for those classes?

Bottom line, Bubba if it doesn't work out in baseball, come back in a couple years will ya?
