Several Former Huskers have taken to the Twitterverse to support their head coach Bo Pelini after the release of an audio tape filled with discouraging comments about the Nebraska fan base. Pelini has given an apology to the fans and is awaiting possible discipline from NU chancellor Harvey Perlmen.
Coach Bo was mad at the fans who were booing and left the game early. Why wouldn’t he? Those fans gave up on us. I was ticked!
