It was a relatively rough day on the recruiting front for Bo Pelini, with Nebraska’s 2012 class coming in as low as No. 50 (Scout.com) according to one of the top recruiting services and no higher than No. 25 (Rivals.com) in the other two.
Unfortunately for the Cornhuskers head coach, it didn’t get much better later on in the day.
Pelini confirmed to the Lincoln Journal-Star that he was involved in a car accident on his way to a recruiting dinner Wednesday evening. From the paper’s description, Pelini was entering an intersection when another vehicle collided with the front passenger side of the coach’s vehicle.
“It was kind of nasty, but everybody’s OK,” Pelini told the paper.
While the individuals were OK, Pelini’s vehicle wasn’t; the coach had to take another vehicle to make his way to the recruiting affair.
