“It saddens me to announce that Rickey Thenarse will be suspended for the Holiday Bowl due to a violation of team rules,” Husker coach Bo Pelini said in a statement Sunday night. “Rickey is a young man who has faced and overcome as much adversity and tragedy in his life as any person I’ve known. But he also understands that he’s accountable for his actions.
Looks like some walk-on will be making the Holiday Bowl trip and getting Rickey’s gift suite swag. Congrats, kid.
