It’s a good thing nothing of interest happened in the Big Ten this week, isn’t it? I really can’t stand it when off-the-field issues distract from the competition we look forward to all week. Jerry Kill is fine and whether he’s fit to coach is really not for us to decide. Likewise, there’s no reason to talk about what Bo Pelini said a couple years ago in the heat of the moment when we have games to watch, great games like…
So anyway, about Pelini…
Missouri at Indiana
Here’s your marquee Big Ten matchup of the week, unless you think Michigan State’s performance against Youngstown State totally shows how they’ve turned the corner on offense. Missouri is, of course, an SEC team, though it seems like there have been some adjustment problems for the Tigers. Mizzou’s offense is for real, though. The Tigers bring a run-heavy attack with field-stretching receivers and a stout defense.
At least I think it’s stout. It’s hard to tell when they’ve only played Murray State
BEST OF MAXIM
ESPN college football analyst Lee Corso admonished Nebraska Cornhuskers head football coach Bo Pellini for his foul rant made behind the scenes two years ago that came public this week. Unfortunately, in the midst of ripping Pellini for his complaining about the Nebraska fans, Corso slipped up with accidental curse of his own (albeit a mild one) that sent the College Gameday crew...
After nearly 24 hours of Bob Pelini not knowing where he stood with his bosses, Nebraska released a statement basically saying they’re done with this whole ordeal and they’re moving on. Nebraska released a statement on Wednesday acknowledging their concern about Pelini’s comments and that the comments were “unfair” to Nebraska fans. But the statement also wanted to make...

One thing Bo Pelini is absolutely great at is being Bo Pelini. No one does it quite like him. He's a good coach who gets a little worked up and out of control at times. But one thing he'll never be good at?
Being Tom Osborne. Even harder: Being Tom Osborne while playing in the college football landscape of the 1980s.
And that's Pelini's problem, because Nebraska...
Bo Pelini's seat at Nebraska is so hot he'll be standing up for the remainder of his certain-to-be-brief career as Cornhusker-in-Chief.
Clubbed 41-21 at home by UCLA last week, Pelini's squad gave up 31 points in the second half and blew an 18-point lead. Former Nebraska quarterback and College Football Hall of Famer Tommie Frazier fired off an angry tweet during...
Fans stood, clapped and cheered — as usual — during the team's traditional entrance and pregame tunnel walk, as Nebraska tries to put head coach Bo Pelini's audio blunder behind them.
Nebraska Chancellor Harvey Perlman and Director of Athletics Shawn Eichorst issued a joint statement about coach Bo Pelini's curse-filled rant against his fans surfaced.
The national eyes of college football are focused on Lincoln, Nebraska this week. This has happened before, only it was the result of attendance records or Heisman candidates. This week, however, the focus is on an embattled coach who is already a topic in the state that rivals politics and religion.
An f-bomb laced conversation from two years ago where Bo Pelini ripped the Nebraska...
Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez missed practice Tuesday, putting his availability for Saturday's game against South Dakota State in question.
Coach Bo Pelini said Martinez was wearing a walking boot on his left foot the last two days because of turf toe.

Nebraska has some more trouble on its hands. If head coach Bo Pelini's now infamous rant against the fans wasn't bad enough, the Huskers may have lost the use of starting quarterback Taylor Martinez for next Saturday due to a case of turf toe.
According to Pellini, Martinez has been wearing a walking boot for the past...

Bo Pelini has been under fire this week since Deadspin’s release of a 2011 audio tape that features the Nebraska coach unleashing a profanity-laced tirade against the Cornhuskers’ fans, in which he proclaims “F*** you fans. F*** all of you.”
It was unclear why this video was suddenly leaked, but Deadspin’s informant provided the following explanation...
The ever unpredictable Lee Corso was at it again this morning as he said ************** not once but twice in a 30 second span when discussing the Bo Pelini incident at Nebraska. Now the term ************** really isn’t anything to get all up in arms about, Corso has done worse… much worse as you can […]
