Pelini: "F*** you (Nebraska) fans, f*** all of you"

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on September 16th, 2013 at 6:10 PM

Pretty interesting stuff to say the least. On top of former QB Tommie Frazier bashing Pelini, he went on a little tirade in a presser as reported by Deadspin. There is audio of him saying it in the link.

EDIT: Thanks for the heads up on the mistake. Apparently this was in 2011. Nebraska fans are pissed all over the twitter.



"It took everything in my power to not say, 'Fuck you, fans. Fuck all of you.' Fuck 'em."

"Our crowd. What a bunch of fucking fair-weather fucking—they can all kiss my ass out the fucking door. 'Cause the day is fucking coming now. We'll see what they can do when I'm fucking gone. I'm so fucking pissed off."

The article says the recording is from October 8, 2011, after Nebraska had come back from Ohio State.

EDIT: Three posters above beat me to it.  Well done.

People don't sit on this stuff for 2 years and then "randomly" release it into the air without a major agenda by "insiders".  This looks vaguely familiar....

Pelini had no connection with Nebraska other than a year as DC, losing that job when Frank Solich lost his.  He came to Nebraska from the DC job at LSU.  Nebraska is in the top 20 in the country in revenue and spending and that's mostly from when they were in the Big 12; B1G money will boost that much higher.  They have a huge and extremely loyal fanbase.  I don't see why they can't both afford and attract a very good coach.

So, add Nebraska to the list of programs looking for a new HC after this year? So far we're looking at USC, Texas, and Neb. Perhaps even Bama and ND if their coaches decide to look for greener pastures (Saban pending any action against Bama, maybe NFL, and Kelly perhaps if the Lions make a serious run at him; he's already looked at NFL jobs). Could be an interesting year for coaching hires...

He thinks highly of himself..As a Youngstown native i will say i am amazed how he is spoken of in these parts..He has not impressed me..And now he acts as if Nebraska is nothing without him...You have done nothing..and your defense stinks every year and yet you are a defensive mind ? id tell him get lost

If any potential cannings take place based on performance, then I have to wonder if the Nebraska DC John Papuchis is on a hotter seat than Pelini - I do tend to think Pelini's seat is at least warming, however. Granted, this recording coming out is a lot of things that you really shouldn't say about fans or the people who cover your team ever really, but I do have to wonder if there is a staffing shakeup before they would go after Pelini, even despite this particular revelation. 

That being said, I think the recording - even being two years old - inhibits Pelini's longevity at Nebraska definitely, at least to some degree, perhaps even as soon as the end of the year. It definitely brings his desire to be at Nebraska into question, and an employee that demonstrates that sort of disengagement typically means an eventual departure. We'll see what the AD thinks, I suppose.

I'm not talking about the state. I'm talking about the team he played for and the fans that set in that stadium. I mean any player that gets a kick out  of the cheerleaders doing a Village People imitation spelling out four letters, usually in correct order, has been subjected to high standards as to fandom.

I wouldn't be surprised if Hoke thought that for a second or two when the boo birds came out on Saturday.  Of course thinking something and actually saying it, particularly in a maniacal fashion, are two different things.

It definitely pissed me off to hear people booing.
