    Pelini is a seriously disturbed individual. I’m glad he is gone.

    I agree with SusanB. It’s cowardly and childish for a human, who I’d like to consider a man, act more like the animal. Yes I said it, “ANIMAL”. Who are the ones to have less intelligence of human beings. No so………Bo!

    My points:

    1. Habitual lair. When his team is whipped so bad he throws his team under the bus. As in, “we practice all week and come game time it’s like they forget everything we taught them.” Thus, not manning up and taking responsibility for his failures as a coach. At the players meeting, “I’ve got your back’s, I’m the only who’s had your back’s”. One doesn’t match the other. Once again this means Bo is a Habitual Lair!

    2. The AD fired Tom Osborne comment. Wow! What a laughable comment! Come to think about it, when I go to the games I see the “Osborne Field. From a online site:

    The legend who cemented Nebraska’s place in college football history has his name back where it belongs, and that linked legacy to Big Red posterity will continue to inspire the hearts of Huskers on every Game Day, beginning this fall, throughout the next 50 years, and beyond.

    And when one walks into the North-side of the Athletic Dept, what is seen?

    The statue of Brook Berringer and Tom Osborne is located outside of the Tom and Nancy Osborne Athletic Complex on the North side of Memorial Stadium. It is a life-sized bronze sculpture of the two standing side by side, and Osborne appears to be coaching Berringer during a game.

    So really? Really Bo? Tom was fired? To Bo…..you are a freaking IDIOT! Even if you are fortunate to win (maybe a championship) at the D1-AA level, any BCS Athletic Director should never (a word I refrain from using but will make an exception in this case) NEVER ever hire you to represent their program. EVER! It would be shameful and frighting for any young male you would be associating yourself with. I feel bad for those young impressionable men at Youngstown as well.

    3. Recording rant…. not once… but TWICE! I read a few comments about the player shouldn’t have recorded it. We don’t know WHO recorded it. But the fact remains, Bo…you should have never said it! Vented about the fans in years past nor about loosing your job. Which you really didn’t deserve in the first place! Like JP or Beck, they were no more qualified to be Coordinators when you promoted them. Same out comes. NO championships! Big losses when it matter the most.

    4. The state of the program? I will take Dr. Tom’s advice and support Riley (get behind him). But as of now, I will reserve the right NOT to support the Chancellor. I feel his only good decision was bringing back Dr. Tom. Since then, both Dr. Tom and Harvey have made one bad decision after another. The future remains to be seen. So enough said from me for now.

    Mr. Poster. Please keep your blog alive. You bring good topics for discussion. We all can agree to disagree. It’s our right!

      Wow! Epic comment. Pelini came up with a lot of excuses for his embarssing losses and I noticed some of his players began echoing his many lame excuses, too. I wonder if Youngstown would have hired him if this latest recording had surfaced earlier? Have you ever heard about or seen a head coach in any sport act like this guy?

    Here’s a thought. Maybe Bo’s mentor in coaching came from the Basketball coach Bobby Knight? Recall his actions towards referees and players? kicking, throwing chairs, grabbing players and one time slapping one? Bo get’s the trophy though simply because this is the historic, “NE Football Program”. And come to think about the players echoing Bo’s comments, I caught that too. Almost like “talking points.” Nobody should be blind sided to see how young men get caught up following their leader. Hmmm???? How many will go on to coach like him? What brings out animal type instinct’s in sub-humans as these two people? I refuse to call them men!

      OK. Woody Hayes an Bob Knight were worse when it comes to physical acts but even when they got fired neither one insulted their university and AD like Pelini did. And he did it in front of the players. Obviously someone in the room didn’t like what he said and or they didn’t like him, so they were smart enough to think ahead and recorded the entire thing– probably figuring he would say something stupid. Nice they turned it over to the media so everyone else could see Bo Pelini for what he is. Now doubters can understand why a school would fire someone who won at least 9 games in each of his 7 seasons.
