Huskers and Steroids

The Lincoln Journal-Star reports that one of the three men arrested in Lincoln for trafficing steroids claims that Husker football players were involved. In fact, one of the men roomed with former kicker Sandro DeAngelis.

I don't think this will be the last of this story, and we'll hear much more about this story. The issue really shouldn't be "are any Huskers taking steroids?", because in a program the size of Nebraska's, there are bound to be some players who want to take that chance. Plus, we know of players that have been disciplined in the past, allegedly for this. (Not to mention the legends of past players going on steroid rampages through downtown Lincoln.) The question really is, how widespread the problem is, and is the athletic department doing everything it can to deal with the problem.
