Huskers head coach Bo Pelini first said nothing definitive came from his discussion with Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel on the alleged spitting incident. Pelini also said he didn’t see anything on the tape to back up Mizzou quarterback Chase Daniel’s claims the Huskers played dirty.
I’d like to know what Pelini considers dirty, because the Huskers have been called for eight personal foul penalties this year, two of them coming Saturday night. One on a helmet-to-helmet hit by defensive end Zach Potter and another on offensive lineman Matt Slauson for an after-the-play altercation.
Well, it doesn’t get easier now for the Huskers. They’re first road game of the season and its the middle of October and they go up against the godfather of the spread offense, Mike Leatch’s Texas Tech Red Raiders.
The Huskers are banged up a little bit, but the key is the defensive secondary is pretty healthy to go up against Graham Harrell and Michael Crabtree.
