Photo: Fans show support for Pelini with funny sign

It was one of the hottest questions heading into today’s South Dakota State-Nebraska game: How would Nebraska fans react when head coach Bo Pelini jogged onto the Memorial Stadium on Saturday?

As you can see here above, there were some boos heard in the crowd, which was expected after Pelini’s disparaging remarks about Nebraska fans following a 2011 comeback victory over Ohio State. But for the most part, it looks like the cheers did indeed outnumber the jeers.

Check out this fun photo of Nebraska fans showing support for their head coach.

I don’t know really what to think anymore, I don’t like the comments that he made about us fans, I know it was after a really emotional game and all but you just cant talk about your fan base like that. Now, I don’t like that it came out two years after the fact. So to me you have to let it go I guess. I do think that we have more talent on both sides of the ball than we have had in years but I think the assistant coaches/offensive and defensive coordinators are not performing up to their abilities, especially on the defensive side of the ball. YOU HAVE TO STOP THE RUN, first and formost. So if BO will not get the ship righted by getting the right people to coach up this talent then I guess it falls on Bo. On the other side, if you get rid of Bo the program starts over again, does nothing to further recruiting and if you look at what is out there, there really isn’t much better…unless you want to spend the money and I think we spend enough.

I don’t hear any boos, actually… I do hear the music playing in the background. Perhaps that was mistaken as boos? I was at the game, very near the tunnel, and never heard one disparaging remark toward Bo! In fact, there was a standing ovation when he left the field!

It should say “Now I’m a BoLeaver!”
