    BOO PELINI?

    Anyone who thought Bo Pelini was going to be booed as he entered Memorial Stadium Saturday afternoon doesn't know Husker fans very well. First, and foremost, the Husker football program is bigger-much bigger than any one player, assistant coach, head coach, AD, Chancellor or anyone else you can ...

    Judging by the response at Memorial Stadium Saturday, Bo Pelini seems to have made some progress repairing his relationship with Nebraska's fan base. That seemed easy enough. It'll likely take a lot more work to go to get his defense fixed, though, and in the final analysis, Pelini's success or failure in Lincoln will be decided by his team's results on the field.

    Pelini seems more concerned about the defense than his reputation anyway, and probably, ...

    (Author's note: A lot has happened since the UCLA game, but I won't be addressing any of those things here as I prefer to keep these recaps to the game itself. Feel free to read my takes on the Tommie Frazier tweet and the leaked audio).

    INTRO

    So what did we learn?

    Nebraska reinforced itself as some of the best fans in the nation. Nebraska, and the student section did a wonderful job of respectfully honoring UCLA receiver Nick Pasquale who died a few days before the game. The Huskers wore memorial decals on their helmet and the university held a moment of silence in his honor. But it was the student section who really did Nebraska proud. During the moment of silence, they released blue and gold balloons and held up banners staying "N - 36" and "Two Schools - One Team". It was a truly touching gesture, and one that hopefully provided some comfort to a UCLA community grieving one of their own.

    The defense is not good enough to carry the offense. Six of Nebraska's 15 drives went three and out. Each of those drives only ...

    To refresh, Part 1 was a veiled prediction that, based on the latest D meltdown and already screeching tenor of the fan base, that Bo won’t survive what seems destiny to not be competitive for a B1G title and thus there was little point to engaging in raucous debate as to whether Bo should stay or go, when the answer is all but written.

    Secondly, since the two sides of Husker Nation are so polarized, convincing the opposing view to come around has become as hopeless as convincing ...

    LITTLE BO BLEEP-GATE?
    All is quiet in Lincolnville. Bo Pelini is still the Husker head coach and the planets are in alignment.. Fortunately for Husker fans, coaches, the University and the football program, "Bleep-Gate" had a short shelf life. That a two year old recording would have the impact it did, is surprising. But if the head coach on that tape is Bo Pelini and he's is dissing ...

    Bo Pelini's press conference yesterday already yielded enough good stories to talk about for two weeks. Between his reflective opening statement and his “we don't need” Tommie Frazier remark, a lot was left open to interpretation as to how ...

    Note:This was written before the Deadspin bomb, which won’t help Pelini, but at first scratch doesn’t seem to sway opinions from either side about the most divisive man in Nebraska. The following was not altered.

    The firestorm is raging over defunding the Pelini experiment and I’m sure many have tuned in to read this writer’s Affirmative Constructive for this debate, but there are two reasons not to argue this topic.

    One. ...

    By now, you are familiar with the (NSFW) bomb Deadspin.com dropped on the state of Nebraska, Bo Pelini, and the 2013 season. Having read the article, listened to the audio, and witnessed the media explosion that followed, I'm still trying to wrap my head around the situation. Here are some of my random thoughts as of Monday night:

    You have every right to be pissed off. I was upset when I first heard it. It was unsettling. Disturbing. Hurtful. As Nebraskans and fans, we have a deep pride in the program. Over the years, we've come to expect that our passion will be mocked and ridiculed by outsiders who don't understand what we have and why we treasure it. When the barbs come from some east coast media member or fan of a rival school, it is easy to deflect their words ...

    In the wake of Nebraska's ugly 41 - 21 collapse to UCLA, lots of strong statements and opinions were issued by fans, media, and alumni. As one might suspect, most of these opinions were not very positive towards Bo Pelini and his coaching staff.

    But among the millions of opinions spoken, printed, or (in this case) tweeted, one stands out:
    "After letting it sink in for about 4 hours I still struggling. It's time to get rid of the defensive play caller, the Dc, lb dl and db coaches. I hate saying this but this crap is getting old. How in the hell do you not make adjustments or put your players in the position to compete? If this is what is going to happen for the remainder of the season, count me out. I don't care if we lose a game but the way we are losing is just not what #Nebraska fans deserve. I have fought, bled, and cried over this program. I didn't do all that for the program to become what it has today. Time for change!"

    Those are strong words from anybody, but they didn't come from Joe Fan. They came from ...
