Maybe I was being a pollyanna, but I kind of expected Chase Rome to return. I may have been alone on this one, though.
Our @huskerextrabc tweets that Chase Rome is back with Nebraska. Shows what I know. Figured he was gone for good.Here's what I wrote last week about Rome:

Maybe Rome goes back to his apartment, sleeps on it, and talks to friends and family about what happened. Maybe he realizes that as a third-year sophomore, he only can play one more season at another 1-A school unless he gets his degree. Maybe after a cooling off period, Rome can sit down with the coaches, clear the air, and rejoin the program. Pelini seems to be leaving the door open for now, that's a positive.
