Huskers & Drugs - Chapter 2

The Omaha World-Herald finally looked into the case of the 3 drug traffickers and their connections to Husker athletes. (Better late than never.) The latest development is that one of the items these men were trafficking, Serostim (a human growth hormone) is not detected by the NCAA's drug testing program even though it is illegal. The article says that it can only be reliably detected using blood tests, and the NCAA only does urine testing.

The Nebraska State Patrol is still investigating, which means that we haven't heard the last of this story. Certainly now that the Omaha newspaper has ran the story, some of the local TV stations might now mention it. I still expect to hear some names, as the State Patrol spokesman says the drugs were distributed to "college-level athletes".

Who are the players who we know did it? Or even who are alleged to have done it?
