Bo Pelini responds to fan who questions Nebraska's direction

Bo Pelini is in his seventh year leading the Nebraska football program. Following the Huskers’ blowout loss to Wisconsin this past Saturday, there are some questioning if the 46-year-old coach should get an eighth.  One such Nebraska fan called into Pelini’s weekly radio show this evening.  Fan on Pelini’s show questions whether Nebraska is going in the right direction...

Bo Pelini could be in trouble at Nebraska

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini has always had to deal with detractors during his tenure. He has the Cornhuskers sitting at 8-2 with Minnesota on deck this weekend. But after an embarrassing loss against Wisconsin, the complaints about the state of the program have started to get louder. Losing to the Badgers was bad, but the way they lost is what has Big Red Nation fired up. Wisconsin...

Minnesota-Nebraska Preview

Nebraska's embarrassing loss last week likely cost it a shot at a Big Ten title and has Bo Pelini under fire. The 21st-ranked Cornhuskers' battered defense has little time to recover before matching up with another potent running attack Saturday when it hosts Minnesota, which is No. 25 in the College Football Playoff rankings. Nebraska (8-2, 4-2) controlled its own destiny...

A Number Of Nebraska Defensive Players Chose Not To Wear Their Blackshirts At Practice Today

For roughly half of Nebraska’s defense, Saturday’s performance against Wisconsin resulted in a temporary handing in of the Blackshirts.  The Huskers’ defense, which allowed 59 points and a record-setting 408 rushing yards by Melvin Gordon in a loss to Wisconsin, was given their Blackshirts by Bo Pelini on Oct. 21.  At today’s practice, seven defensive players opted to not...

Bo Pelini’s big game inability keeps Nebraska Cornhuskers from being elite

What’s with Wisconsin and Bo Pelini? I mean, the Badgers have taken out some serious aggression on Pelini’s Huskers everywhere but Lincoln, Neb. since joining the Big Ten. It’s Wisconsin 174, Nebraska 72. Think about that for a second. In three games played outside of Lincoln, Neb. the Huskers have barely topped the 2012 Big Ten championship point total for Wisconsin. But,...

Pelini: Nebraska moving in right direction

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska coach Bo Pelini says he has nothing to apologize for and that his program has not hit a ceiling in his seventh year on the job. Pelini defended his program Monday in the wake of Saturday's 59-24 loss at Wisconsin. The Badgers' Melvin Gordon set an FBS single-game record with 408 yards rushing. Pelini says the Cornhuskers have been consistent and...

Faux Pelini put up a better fight than Nebraska did vs Wisconsin

He is one of the superstars of College Football Twitter, the internet coach whose buyout would be the largest if a Twitter account’s popularity could be monetized. Fake Bo Pelini — @FauxPelini is the handle — creates ripples of laughs across the web, especially on college football Saturdays.

Pelini seeks answers after another Nebraska tumble

Shortly after watching Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon run through his charges in record-setting fashion, Nebraska defensive coordinator John Papuchis issued the challenge for this week. ''A lot of who we are as a program, coaches and players, is going to be revealed when we play against Minnesota,'' Papuchis said in Madison, Wisconsin. It's going to be a rough...

3 Keys To Victory: Nebraska vs Wisconsin

Nebraska-Wisconsin: A Day To Escape Shadows In the Big Ten West

In November, shadows lengthen, so it’s very much a paradox that the Wisconsin Badgers and Nebraska Cornhuskers are trying to escape shadows when they meet inside Camp Randall Stadium on the third Saturday of college football’s cruelest month. Everything about this game evokes the image of shadows… and the accompanying need to leave them behind. * Last Saturday, the clash between...

Opposition Research: Q&A with Husker Corner

With that in mind we reached out our friends at Husker Corner, and specifically, co-editor Brandon Cavanaugh. We’ll get the answers to the key questions facing Nebraska, including what’s up with the verbal games played by Pelini about...

Wisconsin Badgers vs Nebraska Cornhuskers: Pelini, Andersen look for signature wins.

Fasten your seat belts B1G fans, because at approximately 2:30pm central time on Saturday, November 15th, the race for the B1G West division will all but be decided over the course of a 3 hour football game. Technically, Minnesota is still in contention for the West division as well, but it would take not one, but two massive upsets in Lincoln and Madison (in back to back weeks...

Nebraska Path to College Football Playoff Still Exists, But Barely

Although certainly buried underneath the bigger story lines near the top of the third College Football Playoff committee rankings this week, Nebraska’s drop three spots during a bye week is telling. Apparently the committee continues to be willing to punish teams severely for losses that look worse as the season goes along, and the Big Ten also fails to get the benefit of the doubt...

Bo Pelini’s Calendar for the Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Wisconsin Badgers Game

Bo Pelini has had a pretty full couple of weeks.  What with somehow dropping the soap in the prison-shower-scene that is the College Football Playoff committee, trying to get the blood on his contract with the devil to dry in time for Ameer Abdullah to make a miraculous return to health, and attempting to win yet [&hellip (Visited 5 times, 5 visits today) The post Bo Pelini’s...

Nebraska DT Vincent Valentine Is Mad That The Huskers Fell In The College Football Playoff Rankings Despite Having A Bye

In the latest College Football Playoff rankings, the Nebraska Cornhuskers fell three spots. Bo Pelini’s squad was the No. 13 team in America last week, but this week, the squad is ranked 16th. Falling that far usually only happens after a team loses, but last weekend, the Cornhuskers had a bye. Unsurprisingly, this upset some people, like Nebraska defensive tackle Vincent Valentine...

Kenny Bell Responds To Nebraska’s College Football Playoff Ranking, Says Team Needs To “Just Win”

One team that didn’t receive much love in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings is Nebraska. Despite being 8-1 and the No. 11 squad in America in both the AP and Coaches’ polls, the Huskers were only ranked 16th in the most recent rankings by the playoff committee. While some Huskers fans may have been upset, WR Kenny Bell has a simple solution on how the team can...

Video: Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah Is Practicing Today, Wearing Protective Brace On Knee

On this morning’s Big Ten coaches’ conference call, Bo Pelini said he expects Ameer Abdullah to play against Wisconsin, but he’s “not a doctor,” so the Nebraska coach isn’t sure if his star running back will be good to go.  If today’s practice is any indication of Abdullah’s status for Saturday, it appears the Huskers’ senior tailback will at least attempt to give...

Nebraska’s Bo Pelini Says He Expects Star RB Ameer Abdullah To Play vs. Wisconsin, But He’s ‘Not A Doctor’

This Saturday’s Nebraska-Wisconsin game will feature the Big Ten West Division’s two top teams and, hopefully, the two best running backs in the conference in the Badgers’ Melvin Gordon and the Huskers’ Ameer Abdullah.  Abdullah’s status for the game is in doubt, though. The Nebraska senior running back strained his MCL during a Nov. 1 game against Purdue and might not...

Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini Expects Ameer Abdullah To Be 100% For Wisconsin Game

Twitter/@Huskers This week’s bye could not have come at a better time for Nebraska. Not only does it give Bo Pelini and his staff an extra week to prepare for an incredibly important game against Wisconsin, but it should also allow star running back Ameer Abdullah to fully recover from the mild sprain that he suffered over the weekend. Pelini is confident that he will have Abdullah...

The consternations over ESPN’s perceived SEC bias have reached a fever pitch recently.  They were given some legitimacy when Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said the ESPN/SEC relationship was not good for college football.  That came on the heels of #FSUTwitter conspiracy theories that ESPN was out to get Florida State and Jameis Winston and threats of GameDay boycotts.

Earlier this week, Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini made it clear that he thinks that ESPN (partially because of the SEC Network) is a bit biased when it comes to its coverage of the Southeastern Conference. Wednesday, network broadcaster Joe Tessitore joined Paul Finebaum on his radio show to explain exactly why he believes that the league hasn’t been “propped up” by the network...
