    Default Bo Pelini




    Bo Pelini isn’t real big on small talk.

    “I don’t always say a whole lot,” he told me recently. “But I notice everything.”

    As he climbed the coaching ladder, Pelini presumably noticed the strongest traits of George Seifert, Ray Rhodes, Pete Carroll, Mike Sherman, Les Miles, Bob Stoops and Frank Solich — men Pelini mentioned Sunday as being mentors.

    Now comes the chance to learn from another mentor. This will be fascinating to watch — Pelini and Tom Osborne. The brash and admittedly emotional former Ohio State free safety learning from the famously calm and understated former congressman and legendary coach. Together they will try to pull Nebraska from the depths of a startling football depression that sometimes seems surreal.

    If anyone remembers my Tom Osborne thread, comments are welcomed on both.

    Surely the Snyder situation was the impetus behind the reporter’s question: Your emotions and passions, will you have to temper them now? After all, goes the line of thinking, Pelini’s now a head coach for the first time.

    Pelini paused. He chuckled. It was a nervous chuckle. He started to answer, then paused. It was sort of uncomfortable for a few seconds.

    No problem. Pelini’s newest mentor was sitting right behind him. Pelini turned and looked at Osborne, as if seeking guidance. Osborne shrugged his shoulders, as if to say, “You’re on your own on this one, young fella.”

    Everyone laughed and comfort returned.

    Let the Pelini era begin.

    “I’m going to be who I am,” Pelini said. “I’m not going to change.”

    He repeated it for emphasis.

    “Bo Pelini’s not going to change.”

    The native of Youngstown, Ohio, is a boxing fan and a devoted family man. He enjoys Bruce Springsteen and coaching defense. Baby, he was born to lead (my apologies to The Boss). At least that’s what virtually every one of his former players will tell you. They’ll tell you he has a natural way of inspiring them. Maybe it’s his glare, or his tough-guy persona, or his ultraconfident demeanor, or his sheer intelligence. He’s whip-smart.


    Whatever the case, he gets players to play hard.

    “If you don’t play hard, you don’t have much of a chance,” said Osborne, the most powerful interim athletic director in the history of college sport.

    He's been an assistant at LSU so his games have been seen... just not with him as head coach... instead it's been Les Miles. He does seem to be pretty animated at times on the side lines but I think that's just part of having a good team on the field.

    I think Nebraska's made a good choice with him. Unlike what Arkansas has done with their coaching situation.

    Probably SLE
    MAYBE LSE, but I'm not sure. He reminds me of a more sane version of an SLE I know.
