Bo Pelini hates everything - except his cat
Nebraska's football players (Or Football Student-Athlete per the email) learned of Bo Pelini's firing via a rather bland and impersonal email. Why the rush to fire him after a come from behind victory? Couldn't they wait til Monday or Tuesday, which seems to be the M.O. from Michigan? The players would have been back and the excuse of so many players being away from campus would not have been needed.
Maybe I am oversensitive since we found out about my H.S. coach being fired by seeing it in the newspaper - but I think this is a pretty crappy way to treat (a) a winning coach in Bo, and (b) the players who clearly play their guts out for the guy.
“Dear Football Student-Athlete.”
How nice to personalize the emails. I certainly hope our players learn Hoke's fate in a much more personal way.
Rice has upped the ante in the world of recruiting (/s). They are recruiting J.T. Granato and hope an appeal to his kitty will sway him their way.
“As you know we’re trying to convince J.T. Rice is the place for him. I know you’d like to keep him close so he can feed you and change the litter box. Please help us to get him to choose us. Paw me if you have any questions.”
Must have done the trick, as Granato committed to Rice this week. MEOW!
Your move Bo.
