In an unbelievable turn of events in Lincoln, Bo Pelini has dismissed running back Quentin Castille from the team for a violation of team rules.

Pelini wouldn't elaborate on the infraction, but stated it was, "a clear violation of team rules."

This is truly a big blow to the Cornhuskers' running game and can't be understated.

Castille was coming off an outstanding performance in the Gator Bowl and was reportedly in even better shape this spring and fall.

Now, Nebraska must look to find a backup for starter Roy Helu.

Freshman running back Rex Burkhead from Texas appears to be the front runner for the job behind Helu, as he has been impressive in fall camp.

This should send a clear message to anyone, any athlete, that wants to play for Nebraska and Pelini.

No matter the star power, team rules apply to everyone and must be followed.
