Nebraska v. OU
The University of Nebraska's storied football program has fallen on hard times recently, and it seems like forever since the Huskers were even competitive in a football game against their arch-rival, Oklahoma. And the program hasn't fared very well in the courtroom, either.
Following on the incident reported in this post from last fall, this CBS Sportsline article reports jury selection in Cleveland County, Oklahoma District Court for the former Nebraska offensive lineman who is charged with aggravated assault for ramming a University of Oklahoma's spirit squad member into the brick wall that surrounds OU's Owen Field prior to the most recent Nebraska v. OU football game last November. The Nebraska lineman faces up to five years in the slammer if convicted on the charge.
Given the home court advantage, the prosecution is favored. ;^)

The Huskers last defeated OU on 10/27/01. I am agnostic as to whether this interval meets the definition of "forever".

Did you note that the Cleveland County DA is named Tim Kuykendall?
A distant (poor spelling) relative of yours, Tom?
BTW, the over/under on the Neb football player's sentence is 2 years. The smart money in Norman is taking the overs.....

Jim Bob, I noticed that a Kuykendall was prosecuting the case, although I knew he could be a relative. If he were, he would be a defense attorney! ;^)
BTW, I'll take the over on that bet!
