Nebraska junior offensive lineman Nouredin Nouili, who started the final seven games last fall, will miss the 2022 season because of a failed drug test.
Nouili announced on Twitter that the NCAA declared him ineligible for the season. He will be allowed to practice with Nebraska this fall and plans to return in 2023.
"I would like to apologize to my family, teammates, coaches, and Husker fans for my error in judgement," Nouili's post reads. "It is an honor to be a part of this football program and represent this university, and I do not take that responsibility likely. Thanks to Coach [Scott] Frost, our athletic and university administration for allowing me to continue to be part of this program in 2022."

A native of Frankfurt, Germany, Nouili was an exchange student and finished high school in Firth, Nebraska, not far from Nebraska's campus. He began his college career at Colorado State and started seven games at guard in 2019 before transferring to Nebraska and joining the team as a walk-on. Nebraska put the 6-foot-4, 315-pound Nouili on scholarship in early November after he became a starter at left guard.
"We will fully support Nouredin Nouili as he continues his academic career at the University of Nebraska," Frost said in a statement. "He is an outstanding young man, who made a mistake that will force him to miss the 2022 season and forfeit a year of eligibility. Noure will be a full participant in practice this fall, and we look forward to him resuming his playing career in 2023."

Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade; states can ban abortion

The Supreme Court has ended constitutional protections for abortion that had been in place nearly 50 years in a decision by its conservative majority to overturn Roe v. Wade. Friday's outcome is expected to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states.
The decision, unthinkable just a few years ago, was the culmination of decades of efforts by abortion opponents, made possible by an emboldened right side of the court that has been fortified by three appointees of former President Donald Trump.
The ruling came more than a month after the stunning leak of a draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito indicating the court was prepared to take this momentous step.

It puts the court at odds with a majority of Americans who favored preserving Roe, according to opinion polls.
Alito, in the final opinion issued Friday, wrote that Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 decision that reaffirmed the right to abortion, were wrong the day they were decided and must be overturned.

"We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision," Alito wrote.
Authority to regulate abortion rests with the political branches, not the courts, Alito wrote.

Joining Alito were Justices Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. The latter three justices are Trump appointees. Thomas first voted to overrule Roe 30 years ago.

Chief Justice John Roberts would have stopped short of ending the abortion right, noting that he would have upheld the Mississippi law at the heart of the case, a ban on abortion after 15 weeks, and said no more.
Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan — the diminished liberal wing of the court — were in dissent.
"With sorrow—for this Court, but more, for the many millions of American women who have today lost a fundamental constitutional protection—we dissent," they wrote.
