Solich sits troubled freshman

Posted September 1, 1999

By The Associated Press

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska freshman Josh Davis will sit out Saturday's season opener at Iowa under team disciplinary guidelines, Coach Frank Solich said Tuesday.

Davis, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound freshman out of Loveland, Colo., was placed on probation in February after pleading guilty to felony burglary and misdemeanor theft charges. He received a two-year deferred sentence for the felony burglary count and a suspended sentence for the misdemeanor theft. He was accused of taking a Sony Playstation from a home in December.

Davis can ask to have the plea withdrawn and the felony charge dismissed if he successfully completes probation.

Davis is the son of former Nebraska running back Tony Davis, who played for the Huskers from 1973-75.
