Well, it appears Pelini’s taunts to Eichorst worked – Bo scared the little lawyer/bureaucrat who has no business in an AD job into giving into the loud-mouth and nasty child, undoubtedly out of personal fear. A ref could stand up to Pelini but not wimp-o Shawn. The rot goes all the way to the top; Shawn has proven how incompetent he is in his handling of this sordid affair.
Pelini should be fired – not just due to his lousy record (half his wins are doormats, so he’s less than 50% against semi-good teams), not just due to his lousy recruiting (who would want to play for an abuser and his recruiting classes prove this), not just due to his slow thinking where he has to take days watching film to figure out a game, not react in real time.
No, Pelini should be fired because he’s a petulant child who acts like he can do anything he wants when he’s even thinking at all (since most of the time his anger, NOT passion (I’m so sick of hearing that excuse), just spills over and controls him). Pelini is a total ass for his uncontrolled behavior, his stupidity, and his sense of entitlement.
We’re not talking about a guy-on-the-street here or the kids in the Boneyard acting like children or fools. We’re talking about a supposed pro who gets $3Mil to do an adult job. He can act like a child when he’s unemployed but as an employee of this state, the highest paid one at that, he owes the state some responsibility and grownup behavior.
Eichorst’s wimpy action (first, too gutless to quell rumors, now so gutless he gives in to Bo’s tantrum) has demonstrated what is wrong with Nebraska football. It’s not just Bo who is the spoiled child, it’s everyone who thinks winning is an entitlement simply because of history, tradition, and because they want it.
You have to earn wins. You have to earn head coaching jobs. You have to earn titles. No one gets them just because they act like spoiled brats. And certainly not AD’s who are gutless cowards and can’t do their job, acting like a grownup, an executive.
So this program is doomed to more mediocrity since no one has the guts (or brains) to see how stupid, incompetent, arrogant, obnoxious, and loser Bo is.
