The University of Nebraska football program emphasizes the importance and value of tradition. However, some of those traditions were removed from the walls of one of their training complex, instigating outrage from players in the program.
At the Suh Training Complex in Lincoln, weight room records from players past and present were traditionally recorded and displayed. Former Husker, Kenny Bell, now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, recently brought it to attention that those records were removed due to a lack of consistency between training and workouts.
Bell tweeted, “That hurts. Was told that because “we didnt train right” our records in the weight room at our Alma Mater are removed? Ouch.”
In addition to Bell, Husker alum, Ameer Abdullah, now with the Detroit Lions, echoed his discontent at the removal of the records.
But, the voices of these two important alumni, among others, were heard and Nebraska has restored the previously removed records to the weight room.
