Talked to Bo Yesterday

Recommended Posts

Me & the family went to the Youngstown State- Indiana State game in the snow yesterday. We was dressed in our Cornhuskers gear and got their early durring warm ups. I got Bo's attention and he came over to the stands to talk when he saw what we was wearing...he came over and shook our hands, grined and said you guys lost? Asked him if he would sign a helmet and he said no problem, I asked how he liked the YSU job and he said he felt relaxed and at home. He said he still follows the Huskers very closely and wishes his guys the best. Talked to him for about 10 minutes and he acted like we was old friends. It was first time we actually got o meet him in person. Good guy in my books.

Apparently, this kind of story is what almost everyone who meets Bo personally has to say, nothing but good things. And that's cool, he still wasn't the right man for the Nebraska job though.

 

As far as feeling relaxed, I'm pretty sure he wasn't feeling very relaxed at the end of the NDSU game. uhoh.gif

I've heard both sides from people who've met him. Some people have said he's a really nice guy, and I don't doubt that he was to them. My aunt said that she was on a flight that Bo and Carl were on and she briefly spoke with both of them, and while Carl was very friendly to her, Bo acted like he didn't want to be bothered. I'm sure it just depends on when and where you meet him.

Did he tell you to F#ck off and kiss his ass as he walked away, if not, this story it just bullship.

I saw him once at Millard North but did not talk to him. He was outside the gym and smiling. Recruiting I'm sure. He's not a monster just terribly flawed. He did so many positive things at DONU that it's sad to think he feels the way he (apparently) does.

If you are the person in your profile picture, of course he'd come talk to you.

I find it crazy how people can't wrap their minds around the idea that maybe sometimes Bo is stressed out and angry and sometimes he isn't. Are you always in the mood to have a friendly conversation with strangers? Like, 100% of the time? If not, does that mean you never ever feel like being cordial to people?

 

Yeah, Bo probably has an anger problem. Even the Hulk turns back into Bruce Banner sometimes.

 

*edit* Not speaking specifically to anyone in this thread, just something I noticed about people's opinion on the man.

Let's get this straight. Bo is a decent guy outside of the football field. He just loses his mind for whatever reason as soon as he steps on the turf.

He may be decent most of the time, but don't be in the immediate vicinity if he misses a putt ! (and the green there is not on a football field)

My kid sister was friendly with Bo's daughters. I wish him and his family well and will always appreciate how he helped the team transition away from the disaster that was Callahan but I am not at all sorry that he's no longer the Huskers coach.

Come on. Anybody that's a good guy and this:

 

 

He said he still follows the Huskers very closely and wishes his guys the best.

 

....Isn't going to show pleasure at the misfortune of guys he cares about.

I met him Thanksgiving 2009 at a Walmart of all places. This was probably about Midnight the night before the Colorado game. He said his wife sent him to buy an extension cord for the Christmas lights.

 

It was so f'ing random and weird.

Why the hell would he be wearing Cornhusker gear before coaching a game at Youngstown?

 

I'm not sure if this is a joke or if you didn't read the OP carefully.

 

Anyhow, I didn't meet him because I don't like bugging people in public places, but I saw him at Scheels in December 2013 and saw a bunch of different people come up to talk to him and he was gracious to everyone. That doesn't mean he doesn't have psychological issues.

He's asking if the author was lost, as in, not knowing where to go. ;)

I'm guessing reading comprehension isn't one of your strong suits.
