The University of Nebraska produced the most touching moment of college football’s first weekend when they took the field with only ten men to honor Sam Foltz, their punter who died in a car accident during the offseason. With Foltz’s family in attendance, it was an incredibly emotional day for the Cornhuskers’ fan base. Unfortunately, one Nebraskan took the opportunity to commit one of the most cruelly pragmatic crimes you can imagine: Breaking into Foltz’s brother’s house and stealing stuff because the family was gone.

According to Jordan Foltz, the thief (or thieves) took a flat screen TV from his house and tools from his Jeep, parked outside. The police are treating the case as a targeted robbery, due to the public nature of the event the family was attending. It begs the question: Is nothing sacred?
