From the weird story archives, a woman has sued Nebraska coach Bo Pelini‘s foundation and Cornhuskers offensive coordinator Tim Beck, according to the Associated Press.
The suit, filed Tuesday, alleges the woman suffered a traumatic brain injury two years ago while participating in a football clinic known as Football 101, which raises money for breast cancer. Per the AP, the woman “fell and hit the back of her head during a drill in which a gauntlet of women struck her with blocking pads…
“Beck oversaw the drill and, according to the lawsuit, encouraged the women in the lines to “hit her.” After Morgan fell, Beck helped her to a chair on the sideline and left. Morgan alleged Beck was negligent because he failed to warn participants of the dangers of the drill and never saw to it that she received on-site medical treatment.”
The woman claims her symptoms have included headaches, nausea, slurred speech, memory loss and blurred vision. She also claims she had to go to the hospital to alleviate bleeding on her brain.
The suit is seeking over $90,000.
