I’m kind of taking a shining to this “new” Bo Pelini.
After a tumultuous 2013 season that appeared to be on the verge of costing him his job, the Nebraska head coach has morphed into, well, the anti-Pelini. Or, at least, the Pelini we’ve become accustomed to.
Mainly, this new persona revolves around the fake Twitter version of Pelini and a feline, with the real Pelini doing his best Lion King impersonation with a real cat at NU’s spring game. There have been a couple of other instances that have turned the on-the-sideline volatile Pelini into something (gasp!) endearing.
The latest example? Friday morning, Nebraska unveiled its new football uniforms. During the course of the unveiling, well, this happened:
There’s really nothing else to say, other than it looks like Coach Pelini could morph very easily back into Player Pelini.
Oh, and there’s also the uniforms themselves: they will be worn during the Sept. 27 Homecoming game against Illinois. But probably not by Pelini. Maybe.
