Nebraska Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst spoke more about the football team and head coach Bo Pelini during his monthly radio appearance on the Husker Sports Network. Eichorst said he was quote “darn proud” of Nebraska players for battling through injuries and miscues.
Eichorst said that Pelini has admitted his shortcomings, areas in which he needs to improve and he said he was proud of how the athletes played under the circumstances, being faced with injuries. Eichorst said he sees a good group of young people in their program who are really trying to get better.

Eichorst said a “great deal” of what was being written and said about Pelini and the program was “way too personal” and “just untrue.” The reason Eichorst didn’t comment earlier was due to the fact that he oversees 24 programs and it is unfair to get involved in week to week commentary.
