Wrestling with the truth in Nebraska
Nebraska-Omaha says wrestling, football programs must be cut; analysis differs
OMAHA, Neb. -- The chance to play football was "98 percent" of the reason Max Dennis decided to enroll at the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 2007, even if it meant paying out-of-state tuition with not even a partial athletic scholarship.
Four years and almost $80,000 in student loans later, Dennis lost his final year as a linebacker for the Mavericks when the university announced in March it planned to drop its football and wrestling programs and move to Division I.
