October 11, 2012

Will the real Bo Pelini please stand up?
I’ve been waiting to write this column since the season started and now I have enough ammo to back it up.

It proved something that most of you may recognize but don't want to admit it or face the fact.
The fact that Bo Pelini just isn’t that great at coaching defense.
