In a written statement released Thursday,
Coach Tom Osborne said Farley was immedi
ately suspended from the team.
If he was found guilty, the coach said, he
would be permanently dismissed.
‘Terrell had been receiving counseling and
treatment for alcohol abuse and had been noti
fied that any further problems in this area would
result in dismissal from the team,” Osborne said
in the statement.
After Thursday’s practice, Osborne was
characteristically tight-lipped. He added little
to the written statement, only to say that Farley
was probably done playing for the season.
‘‘He won’t play any more this year unless
something changes drastically from what we
know now,” he said.
But the Huskers have faced life without
Farley was first arrested for DWI on Aug.
30. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced Oct.
25 to one year of probation, a $200 fine and a
60-day license suspension.
After serving a two-game suspension at the
beginning of the season following the first ar
rest, Farley was allowed to rejoin the Huskers.
Since then, the preseason candidate for the
Butkus Award, which recognizes the nation’s
top linebacker, had recorded 43 tackles and was
third on the team with 10 tackles for losses.
Osborne said in a statement that Farley had
been tested and monitored daily for alcohol use.

‘To this point,” Osborne said, “he had re

Mayor, NU players promote tobacco-free lifestyle
Two NU football players and
Mayor Mike Johanns joined forces
with the American Cancer Society
Thursday to spread the message “to
bacco is trash” to Lincoln elementary
Offensive tackle Adam Treu, quar
terback Matt Turman and Johanns
threw away packs of cigarettes in front
of more than 200 McPhee School stu
dents in honor of the Great American
There is no place for tobacco in
athletics and healthy, successful ca
reers, they said.
“People who smoke and chew, I’m
going to say it, they’re losers,” Treu
Treu said he had smoked when he
was younger, but he said he knows
better now. His mother still smokes,
and his performance is affected if he
spends time before football practice
around the second-hand smoke, he
“I can tell on those days we run in
practice the second-hand smoke has
hindered me,” Treu said.
Turman said he has never used to
bacco, and that is part of his success
as an NU quarterback.

Cigarette dean-up costs thousands
By Brian Carlson
The costs of smoking involve more
than just health, according to a new
task force created by University of
Nebraska-Lincoln Landscape Ser
Cigarette butts account for 35 per
cent of all campus litter, costing die
department thousands of dollars and
hundreds of hours of clean-up time
Earlier this year, Landscape Ser
vices created the Litter Task Force to
study the problem of campus litter and
attempted to make the public aware of
its costs. The task force found that if
smokers would dispose of cigarette
butts in ash urns rather than oh die
ground, their department could save
726 hours of employee labor—about
$7,000 — every year.
Charles Zilhnger, Landscape Ser

department from focusing time and
energy on more desirable pursuits.
