Husker Nation saw some good Pelini, some bad Pelini

by Dave Bradley

Out of control.
Unfortunately, that’s how I’ll remember the Bo Pelini era at Nebraska.
Out of control, as in lopsided Husker losses when they mattered most.
Out of control, as in Bo’s behavior to officials when things didn’t go the Husker’s way.
Out of control, as in his behavior, at times, to his own players and assistant coaches.
And out of control, as in the crazy, wild, and inconsistent final product he put on the field in scarlet and cream, at times something close to yet at others something far less than championship football.
I do remember when Bo was hired. All of Husker Nation, including myself, was energized and couldn’t wait for the first game. I was thankful he came back to Nebraska after being the defensive coordinator for Frank Solich in 2003.
