NEBRASKA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Photo: The Nebraska-@FauxPelini Love Affair Continues With This Amazing Huskers Hat Featuring A Cat

@FauxPelini may very well be the most successful Twitter parody account in sports at this point, especially after his real-life alter ego brought out a cat onto the field at Nebraska’s spring game. The Twitter account, school, and coach have been getting along very well for a few months now, but Nebraska won’t do something like…license baseball caps with the famous cat on the...

Can Nebraska’s Bo Pelini Become America’s Favorite College Football Coach?

There are times when Bo Pelini reminds me of my dad. My dad was a football coach. He helped found the Small Fry league in my tiny Upstate New York town. He coached kids between the ages of nine and 13. He taught the fundamentals. He taught trick plays. He taught you how to tackle the old fashioned way – hard and low – to make sure the runner didn’t go one more yard once you...

Bo Pelini and his cat give us the best sports moment of the year

Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Bo Pelini has shown a surprisingly self-deprecating side in recent weeks.  This new side of the steely coach centers around his interaction with one of the best parody accounts on Twitter – @FauxPelini.  We’ve already seen the coach interact with his doppelganger before, but during Saturday’s spring game, the Nebraska coach took it to another...

Video: Former Nebraska Offensive Lineman Jeremiah Sirles Successfully Proposes To Girlfriend At Huskers’ Spring Game

There aren’t really any winners or losers during spring games–teams scrimmage against themselves–but it’s probably safe to call Nebraska a winner today.  Nebraska began its spring game at Memorial Stadium with Bo Pelini holding a cat while walking out of the tunnel and then holding it up, circle-of-life style, before the crowd.

Bo Pelini has 78.4K followers on Twitter. Fake Bo Pelini has 84.9K followers on Twitter. When person pretending to be you has more Twitter followers than you, it might be upsetting.
