Know It All Notes: Penn State Gets B1G Love; Bo Pelini Rides a Train

We are just about a month away from all of the Big Ten teams opening fall practice in preparation for the 2014 season. That’s great news for information starved fans like myself (and I assume you, too), as we are starting to see our favorite sports and news sites fill up with more and more college football content. As the season approaches, I’ve taken another periodic look around...

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...

Photos: Tim Miles, Bo Pelini Taking ‘Big Red Express’ Train Throughout Nebraska Today

Nebraska is known for having one of the most supportive and loyal fan bases in college sports. The Huskers have sold out every game in Memorial Stadium since 1962, a record streak of 333 consecutive games. The basketball program’s recently-opened arena was packed with a sell-out crowd for each game during the 2013-14 season.  Today, Nebraska is honoring its fans throughout the...

Nebraska Cornhusker Fan Expectations…Here We Go Again

I live in Nebraska. I’m not a native, but I respect the history and tradition of Nebraska football. I respect the program, the players and the coaches. Because I have settled in Nebraska, I’ve even tried to become an actual Nebraska Cornhusker football fan. I couldn’t do it. Why? The Fans. I’m not talking about all of the fans. There are some Nebraska fans that get it. They...

Bo Pelini wants to get rid of national signing day

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini has a solution to slow down the recruiting process: Eliminate national signing day altogether and put greater accountability behind scholarship offers. Pelini thinks high school players should be able to sign with teams as soon as they receive scholarship offers. If coaches choose to offer scholarships to freshmen and sophomores -- an increasingly common...

Nebraska’s Bo Pelini Offers Solution To Recruiting Issues: Eliminate National Signing Day

College football recruiting has become, with lack of a better word, a circus. High school prospects are committing and de-committing, giving verbals to schools with little confidence they’ll actually attend said school, and coaches treat scholarship offers like candy, giving them out to anyone who will bite.  Nebraska’s Bo Pelini has a solution to the problem that is college...

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.

Carl Pelini: AD's agenda led to firing at FAU

OMAHA, Neb.

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...
