Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell took several questions on student-athlete welfare in the wake of news that Northwestern players will vote later this month on whether or not to form a union. The leader of that movement, former Wildcat quarterback Kain Colter, remains one of Bell's best friends. Bell and Colter talk at least weekly, Bell said Wednesday, and have been talking about student-athlete welfare for about a year.
Could that lead to a similar union movement at Nebraska?
