Vulgar language has been apart of Bo Pelini’s M.O. since we’ve known him as the head football coach at Nebraska and that was certainly on full display when you hear the tape of his 30 minute speech he gave to his players off campus after he was fired by Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst.
I’m not sure I entirely agree with the way Pelini handled the meeting with the players. I think he still has a responsibility to those young men to offer encouragement and I believe he did at some points during that meeting, but to throw the administration under the bus in front of those kids who will continue to play football at Nebraska was wrong.
However, having said that, I also think Husker nation got a good picture of the leadership style of Eichorst…the players may feel alienated. Eichorst needs to work on making himself more visible to the players.
