Denizens, as we begin this edition of the Perfect Football Weekend (and yes – sorry it’s late), we note that Nebraska head coach (and former PFW target) Bo Pelini was forced by the pussy-assed excuse-for-an-administration that is Nebraska U. to apologize for Yet Another Rant.
Oh, did we mention this was one he made two years ago?
Nebraska coach Bo Pelini apologized Monday for a profane rant from 2011 in which he criticized “fair-weather” Cornhuskers fans.
The website Deadspin posted the 2-year-old audio of the Cornhuskers’ coach going off on fans and newspaper reporters after a game.
What was already a bad day got much worse for Bo Pelini, who has some explaining to do to Nebraska fans, writes Mitch Sherman. Blog
Pelini’s problematic Monday came on the heels of yet another brutal loss for the Huskers. UCLA wiped out an 18-point deficit in Lincoln and beat Nebraska 41-21 on Saturday.
The tape caught Pelini speaking off air with Husker Sports Network play-by-play man Greg Sharpe before his postgame radio interview following Nebraska’s win over Ohio State in October 2011. Pelini had been criticized by fans and media in the days leading to the Ohio State game for the Huskers’ performance the week before in a 31-point loss at Wisconsin.
In the audio, Pelini repeatedly uses an expletive to refer to what he calls “fair-weather” fans.
Okay, in the first place, this was two fucking years ago, mkay?
Second, it was a private conversation, awright?
If i have a private conversation with someone two years ago, and some half-assed pussy site like Deadspin broadcasts it to the fucking world, the owners of Deadspin.com best hope I don’t ever find them. At the very least, they’ll be the proud recipients of an eight-digit minimum lawsuit. And if I happen to have a certain object in my possession…
Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman said he was disappointed by the comments.
“We are taking some time to consider it and what impact it would have on the university,” Perlman said.
Perlman declined to answer whether Pelini was in danger of losing his job.
Athletic director Shawn Eichorst said he talked to Pelini about the rant.
“I am disheartened and disappointed by the 2011 comments published today attributed to Coach Pelini about our dedicated and passionate fans and supporters,” Eichorst said in a statement. “I have spoken with Chancellor Perlman and I have addressed the situation with Bo and expressed our deep concern.”
Now, I’m no longer a Pelini fan (at least, as a head coach), but Perlman? Eichorst?
You fucknozzles are true douchebags. This is Yet Another Reason why Nebraska is no longer in the PFW.
Let’s go to the football. It’s Guaranteed Loss Night for my Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets, as they take on the Aledo Bearcats (at least, I think they’re the Bearcats). That’s Aledo, as in top-25-in-the-fucking-nation Aledo.
The SpatulaLine is in place on this one, and I’m setting it at 65. Don’t argue – Aledo’s that good, and Heights is that bad.
UPDATE: I’m gonna kill my Intelligence division.
Heights doesn’t lose to Aledo until next week.
Guess I get to run with three teams this week, after all. (sigh)
Saturday, Turner Gill’s Liberty Flames travel to Richmond to take on the Spyders. Richmond’s 1-2, but they should give Liberty all they can handle.
Sunday, Houston travels to Baltimore to take on the RAYMOND LEWIS!!!!!!!-less (as well as Ed Reed-less) Ravens. Andre Johnson will play this game, or so I’ve been led to believe, so give me Houston & the points (they’re a 1½-point road fave).
TCU is guaranteed not to lose this week…why, Wizard…?
MERLIN: Because they don’t play.
Now, I really need four teams to make this worth my while, so I’m gonna plug in the Cowgirls hosting the St. Louis
Ewes Rams Ewes. Vegas has the ‘Girlz by 3, so that means Dan Bailey will win it in overtime.
We’re back Monday for the recap. Hopefully.
