Deadspin just dropped a bomb - "fu fans"

Recommended Posts

Can't remain silent any longer. Coach Bo is the best thing for this program. Highest graduation rate ever, highest GPA ever, top 5 program >

The process and let these coaches continue to groom these young men into winners on and off the field. Look at the big picture.

Look, we all realize Bo likes to use the fug word, I'm sure it was mentioned a couple dozen times during his first born's baptism.

 

I don't think it offends most ppl, and we all know coaches will be coaches and most don't love the media.

 

Unfortunately when something flies into a deadspin with the velocity of a piece of gum from Bo's mouth, it aint slowing down anytime soon. Be prepared for this to reach all of the nooks & crannies of Husker Nation. This will become the topic of conversation for quite a while - b/c there just isn't much better to talk about right now.

 

The result - every Husker fan on the planet will hear about this eventually. Many will shrug it off, but I have a feeling many will not. Regardless of when this was uttered or whether he said these words in the grips of intense labor pains, Bo was not intoxicated and knew exactly what he was saying.

 

I don't see Husker fans forgetting this. Husker fans want their leader to love being a Husker as much or more than they do. And here are 2 of the things Husker fans want the very least from their humble leader:

 

1) A person who belittles them and doesn't respect the tradition of "the Husker fan" - considering the sellout streak no other program compares to, it's tough to question this.

 

2) A person who alludes to riding off on his high horse with double barrel middle fingers blazing.

 

Not that I agree, but short of a Big 10 championship birth & very competitive game vs OSU, I don't see Mr. Bo outshining these images come judgement day at season's end.

 

Good luck sir.

16 pages in a day? Nearly 800 posts? 281 people viewing this thread at 10PM Central? Dang HB.

 

I'm not reading all that so someone bottom line the consensus for me...fire Bo or no fire Bo?

It was originally fire Bo then it devolved into shooting the messenger.

Holy cow. This thread is some serious whiplash. Castrate Bo to circle the wagons in 5 hours.

 

No one looks good in this mess. But good God is Pelini immature with the media. Is it his opinion that anyone who writes something critical of program is evil? If he just cannot handle bad press then we need a team of people to shelter him Truman Show style.

 

If we're starting a poll on who is the leaker, I vote Cotton. A man can only take so much.

It's not contradictory to think both.

Hmm. It is kind of low handed of whomever released the audio. Either put it out there the week of the 2011 OSU-NU game or let it die. Holding it for two years until you're sufficiently pissed off about some other game just seems kind of cowardly.

 

That being said I think you guys need to get real about where you stand and how this all will probably play out. Bo has one, maybe two, blowout losses left. They're going to happen. His position will be even worse if he refuses to change anything with coordinators and assistants. I'd say end of this season or definitely by the end of '14 you'll go out and get a new coach, hopefully with ties to NU, who has head coaching experience.

I just see it as a crummy situation all around for Nebraska. Even when this all blows over there's no scenario in which having Bo as the coach will be a positive in the long run. Either we continue to wither away or he turns it around just enough for him to repair his damaged reputation, and he bolts.

 

And yeah, I agree the person who released it is a weasel. But that's pretty inconsequential to the matter at hand.

Ah, the 2011 Ohio State game. While watching that game, I remember thinking that that night would lead to Pelini's demise. I may have been right after all, sadly.
