Congressman Tom Osborne announced he will not ask the University of Nebraska to remove he and his wife Nancy's name from a new stadium project.

The former head coach says he and Nancy will honor their commitment, but he did give the University the option of changing the project's name if a corporate sponsor or individual donor stepped forward to fund the construction.

Osborne says he called the press conference as a way to let people know that he was unhappy with the way the situation was handled, but that his support for the program will never waiver.
