LINCOLN, Neb. – The usual throng of reporters was back in the Nebraska football complex Saturday, marking an end to coach Bo Pelini's three-day media lockout.
Pelini banned the media because he disagreed with the way some reporters were reporting a season-ending injury to linebacker Sean Fisher. The third-year coach was livid that reporters called Fisher's parents before he had a chance to speak with them.
Reporters found out about Fisher's injury from an Internet message-board posting by the friend of an assistant coach who attended practice Tuesday. Pelini also banned guests.
Practices under Pelini have always been closed to media.
Pelini announced Saturday that he's limiting media access from six days to three days next week.
