Domann’s season ends
LINCOLN, Neb .– JoJo Domann’s Nebraska career is over.
The senior outside linebacker in the sixth year said goodbye on Thursday afternoon via Twitter and justified his decision in his podcast “The Beat with JoJo Domann”.
Coach Scott Frost said after a 26-17 loss to Ohio State on Saturday that Domann was injured and that he would have to make a decision about the last two games.
Domann confirmed on his podcast that he had surgery on Monday to correct a hand injury he sustained against Purdue on October 30.
Domann said he hit his left hand on a helmet on the first drive against the Boilermakers and injured his middle finger.
“I remember looking down at my hand during the game and my ankle was dislocated and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s not good,'” Domann said. “I just wiggled my fingers around until it was back in place and then I just forgot about it and played the rest of the game.”
In the days after the game, however, Domann learned that he needed an operation. He decided to play one more game against the Buckeyes.
“My decision to go was first, I felt I needed a degree,” he said. “I didn’t want to end on these terms against Purdue. I wanted to know when my last game was. I was prepared for it to be played against Iowa and for that to be abbreviated I just needed a degree for myself.” And then it just didn’t fit in my body to leave the black shirts like that, leaving Isaac Gifford out on three-day notice against the No. 1 offenses in the country. It just didn’t fit right. “
So Domann went out and played one of the better games of his career, finishing with nine tackles (one for loss), an interception from OSU quarterback CJ Stroud in the first quarter, and two passes.
