Former Husker head coach Bo Pelini finally had a chance to talk with his team. A meeting was held last night at Lincoln North Star High School. Pelini, no longer employed by the University, had to hold the meeting off campus. Judging by the tweets sent out by quite a few players, it’s easy to see that Pelini earned their respect.
Many of the players tweeted with great admiration for Pelini, thanking him for the opportunity to play football for the University of Nebraska, and even deeper than that. Some players saying they wouldn’t be the man they are today without the support of Pelini. A tweet from kicker Mauro Bondi caught my attention. He threw athletic director Shawn Eichorst under the bus.
