LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Two university regents and the governor are voicing their opposition to three Nebraska football players protesting racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem. Michael Rose-Ivey, Mohamed Barry and DaiShon (DAY-shawn) Neal each took a knee as the anthem played before Saturday’s game at Northwestern. Regents Hal Daub of Omaha and Jim Pillen of Columbus said Tuesday the three used poor judgment. Daub said it wasn’t the place for a “Colin Kaepernick cloning situation.”
