Father of WR Wan'Dale Robinson issues statement of support for Nebraska
Three-game losing streaks can be very difficult to get through. That’s what Nebraska is dealing with at the moment.
Actually, since College GameDay rolled into town on Sept. 28, the Cornhuskers own just a 1-4 record. Surely that’s very frustrating on both the players and coaches.
But the father of Nebraska’s leading pass-catcher, freshman wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson, issued a statement of support for the Cornhuskers via Twitter on Tuesday. Check it out below:

It’s a little unclear why Robinson’s father felt the need to issue such a statement. Even on the worst of losing streaks, it’s not very common for parents to tweet anything about supporting or not supporting the team or coaching staff. There’s no public knowledge of division between Robinson and the team or with the receiver and the Nebraska fans.
Towards the end of the matchup against Purdue on Saturday, the Cornhuskers held Robinson out of the game, and he was visually upset on the sidelines. Maybe that is simply why his father wanted to clear the air.
Robinson leads Nebraska with 40 catches and two receiving touchdowns this year. He also has 453 receiving yards, which is second on the team to junior wideout JD Spielman.
