To me this was extremely petty especially coming from walk ons who apparently felt the need to purposely go out of their way to thank everyone but Mike Riley. They thanked Pelini for recruiting them as Juniors so I would assume that MR agreed to honor their walk on status once he got to Lincoln. He was a good guy that failed as a coach and to me this reeks of trying to stir up unnecessary drama and attention to football careers that before today I had never heard of. I also found the retired comment and long announcement as odd and bordering on grandstanding. I would liken it to me putting up one of those long farewell posts that took a few shots at HuskerMax members on the way out....most of you would read it and say who the hell was that guy?
