Huskers DT damages property in airport

It turns out Nebraska's defense did some damage in Madison after all.

But rather than punish Wisconsin stars Russell Wilson and Montee Ball, one Huskers defender took on a less intimidating opponent: a towel dispenser in the airport.

Nebraska DT Chase Rome reportedly was cited for damaging a paper towel dispenser at the Dane County Regional Airport shortly before the Huskers boarded their flight back to Lincoln.

From the Omaha World-Herald:

The Dane County Sheriff's Office issued the ticket just before 12:30 a.m. Sunday, said Elise Schaffer, a spokeswoman for the Dane County Sheriff's Office. The ticket carries a fine of $326.50.

I'll admit those paper towel dispensers can be annoying, especially the automated ones. But breaking one in the airport deprives everyone of dry hands. Not cool.

Needless to say, it was a rough night for Rome and the Huskers.
