The start of the college football season might not get here soon enough for Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini. Last week it was reported lineman Alex Lewis had a motion rejected by a Colorado court for a reduced sentence. Today another report comes out saying linebacker Josh Banderas is facing charges for helping to steal a total of seven bicycles from a bike rack.
According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Banderas and his bicycle-stealing accomplice Lucas Keifer, a member of the Nebraska track and field team, were allegedly witnessed clipping bike locks with a bolt cutter and loading the bicycles onto a truck. Keifer was the driver of the truck that was later pulled over by police. The two were taken to jail and released on Tuesday on $3,500 bond. A court date of June 17 has been set for each.
Banderas had 28 tackles in 2013 for the Huskers.
