in the context of the leaked comment, completely understandable why he was furious. Why was this leaked and within the confins of a University sponsered program in a room with only 2-3 people. Who’s agenda and why wait for 2 yrs? Complete BS. #GBR

Not that this excludes Bo’s comments. Bob Deavaney probably said worse things the only difference is no one ever recorded what he said.

I am a Husker fan till I die; I am not offended by anything said by coach Pelini. If we are judged by things that we say when we believe we are in ‘private’, we would all be in hot water in some way or another. Pelini’s passion is refreshing and his loyalty is what Nebraskans should admire. He is a stand up man, a man who wants to win, all this ‘fire-storm’ talk is misplaced and over reaching.
