Bo Pelini Jokingly Says He Brought His Cat To Chicago For Big Ten Media Days

Media days are a good time for coaches and players to show off their personalities to the nation.

Nebraska’s Bo Pelini has embraced his online alter-ego @FauxPelini over the...

Nebraska Cornhuskers are Looking For a Few Good DJs

Many teams are looking to lighten practice and make it a little more fun for the kids (and coaches to I suppose) by blasting a little music.If you happen to be a student at Nebraska the football...

Relaxed Pelini optimistic about Nebraska's '14 season

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Bo Pelini was sans accessories on Monday -- no cat in his arms like the one he held up in jest before Nebraska's spring game, and not even a whistle -- as he worked the annual football camp held at his high school alma mater, Youngstown Cardinal Mooney. He wore a Nebraska logo on his chest, but not a very big one. He was just one of the guys helping a bunch...

Taylor Martinez’ brother Drake to transfer from Nebraska

Former Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez’ younger brother Drake will be transferring from the program. Drake Martinez, a safety, redshirted in 2013 as he dealt with several injuries. This transfer could be a result of the injuries and for slipping down the depth chart.  It is so unfortunate that Drake could not imitate Taylor’s success at Nebraska.  Perhaps he will create a name...

Nebraska WR Kenny Bell Ditched His Fro, Bo Pelini Is Sad About It

Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell, who is set to break many Cornhuskers receiving records in his upcoming senior year, will be sporting a new look his fall. Bell, who easily had the best afro in all of college football, lost a bet to Northern Colorado DE Devontae Chapple and was forced to shave it off. It is truly the end of an era.
