Fat Guy Almost-Play of the Day Courtesy of Nebraska Lineman Alex Lewis

This would have been the Fat Guy Play of the Day had it counted. Nothing against Penn State's big man, but anytime an offensive lineman can catch a pass like Nebraska Cornhusker's Alex Lewis did and run it in for a touchdown from 15-yards away it is award worthy.Alas, it was called an illegal forward pass and called back. Tommie Armstrong Jr. better be buying him a cheeseburger or...

Bo Had To Go: Nebraska Fires Bo Pelini, Rightly Expecting Something More

Throughout his tenure as head coach at the University of Nebraska, Bo Pelini was an energetic man, as the photo above shows. He was not known to repress his emotions or speak in soft tones — this is neither good nor bad in itself, because fans and pundits both make the mistake of ascribing too much value to emotionalism or too little value to stoicism.

Nebraska will not win the Big Ten this year. It won’t even win its division. Bo Pelini must endure another year of questions after his defense failed to protect another double-digit lead.
