Say what you will about Bo Pelini as a coach, but this is pretty funny:
Bo Pelini: “First of all, my cat is enjoying a nap up in the room. He is here in Chicago, enjoying the Windy City.”

If you don’t know what Pelini’s getting at, that means you’re not following Faux Pelini on Twitter, which means you’re doing Twitter wrong. This isn’t the first time the real Nebraska coach has engaged the fake Nebraska coach — back in January during the BCS Championship, Pelini asked the parody account if he could have his cat back.
Pelini has a reputation of being an incredibly intense coach on the sidelines — which stems from moments like this — but he said at Big Ten Media Days on Monday that he’s trying to show he’s a different person off the field:
Bo: “I’m not that intense, competitive animal running around all the time.” #huskers

And hey, if his cat and a parody Twitter account are the vehicle for showing that, it’s pretty awesome.
