    Agree 100%. They seemed to quit "researching" the piece after last week's post-game press conference. Complete hack job, based on what we've learned this week.

    This story is the flavor of the week. Bo and the Huskers have to own this. Although Howard seams to pile on, cause of his Michigan ties. And Corso is spot on. So keep winning Bo and this too will blow over.

    ...and then they say some nice things about Osborne -- unbelievable.

    Not necessarily. The brighter the spotlight on the program, the more speculation there will be about Pelini's "antics". The guy could act like an exuberant soccer mom for the rest of his career, but it seems like his reputation is sealed.

    We do that on here: "You know that Bo Pelini is no Tom Osborne."

    Unfortunately, Bo follows one of the greatest ever in the game...not many would look good in that comparison.

    Speaking from both sides of their mouth, utsker. In the first piece they talk about the negative "culture" that has been allowed in Lincoln, with the administration's consent. Then they talk about what a great guy the Athletic Director is? Strange to say the least...

    This has been picked at from time to time since the TM incident. Now it is out there again for all to see. No matter what is fair or not... If there are other incidents this year it will be hounded ad nausea, again. Win out

    Win out. Give ESPN the signal finger, and move on. Bo has improved his "antics" and he can keep improving if it's important to him. Perhaps his wife recorded this "Gameday" and Bo will get to see it at home.

    Meh ... they could do this on a quarter of the programs in CFB. Seems like they've got a hard-on for NU ... oh well, keep winning and recruits will keep coming.

    Alot of Bo defenders in the house...I'm guilty too, however, I realize if Pelini was at another school (Arkansas, Michigan, OSU, etc) and had no ties to Nebraska almost all of us on the board, including the serious koolaid drinkers that outright defend his alctions, would be all over him, just like you (they) are with the rationalizations and comparisons to Kelly, Tuberville, etal.
    Truth said, his demeanor is a factor in the public perception of the program and the bad press he creates. Winning helps, but his lack of the CEO image, regardless of what Kelly or the others do, has a negative effect on the program.

    Has nothing to do with Kool-Aid drinking on my part ... I simply don't have an issue with that STYLE of coaching. I've had both kinds of coaches and never had a problem with either. I'm sure some people do, but, given the players' comments, it doesn't seem to be a problem.
