team does the rest of the season,
they’ll have to do it without Karl
The Comhusker senior and the
team’s No. 2 player was dismissed
from the team for disciplinary rea
sons following the team ’ s 1 -2 record
at the San Diego Team Tourna
ment last weekend.
Nebraska coach Kerry
McDermott said the decision to
dismiss Falkland was not sudden.
“I talked with him several times
and he just hasn’t responded,”
McDermott said Falkland had
expressed disappointment in not
being the team’s No. 1 player, a
position currently held by Matthias
Falkland had made news earlier
in the year by being one of two Big
Eight singles qualifiers for the
NCAA Indoor Championships. He
could not be reached for comment.
McDermott said his players un

the sake of the team.
“The guys know this is a disci

“We’re just going to practice
really hard,” McDermott said. “We
need to concentrate on hard work
and having a positive attitude.”
McDermott said the remainder
of the season would be difficult,
especially without Falkland.
“Definitely, it’s going to be
tougher when we play Kansas and
Oklahoma,” McDermott said. “But
I think we can do it.”
Before Nebraska begins its Big
Eight season, they will have to play
Southwest Missouri State in Kan

The Bears have not lost a No. 1
match in the region this year.
McDermott said the dual would be
