Head coach Bo Pelini and coordinators John Papuchis and Tim Beck met with the media following Tuesday’s practice as all three try to separate the week’s disruption of audio that surfaced from 2011 and this week’s upcoming game against South Dakota State.
Pelini took responsibility for what he said, but also added that it happened a long time ago and that he’s continued to grow as a coach. Pelini tried to emphasize that it was an extremely emotional week leading up to that Ohio State comeback win. He’s not excusing the behavior, but said “We’ve all said things that we don’t necessarily mean and get frustrated.”

Papuchis points to the many good things that Pelini has done and continues to do for the Husker football program from recruiting players the right way to graduating players.
Beck echoed those comments, saying everyone from the coaches to the players on the team were behind him 100%.
