He was arrested at his girlfriends place, which was my neighbor at the time!  And yes, I was home the night they arrested him.  

 

MIllenials be like "Dude, why didn't you pull out your cell phone and take a vid?"

Widespread legitimate cameras on phones weren't really a thing in culture before probably 2010. 

 

Even now, lots of things happen all the time that nobody films. That's generally not people's first instinct.

People get hurt/murdered in public places without anyone getting it on film. The fact people film mundane crap no one really wants to see doesn't mean everything is captured.

 

Although I still think Bo blowing up at a baseball game probably would've been filmed by someone depending on what year that was.

Yes and no.  Lots of things happen unexpectedly and quickly, so yes, this is true.  The most recognizable guy in the state losing his mind in public in an altercation that (likely) lasted at least several minutes?  Seems less likely to be missed.

 

On an only-slightly-related note, I've had the same line of thinking about bigfoot, alien encounters and the Loch Ness Monster (etc.).  Given the proliferation of cell phone cameras, shouldn't we have all kinds of video evidence on these things by now?  :lol:

bigfoot lives in areas with limited cell service so everyone turns their phone off to conserve the battery. aliens can do funny stuff to make electronics inoperable. no idea why nobody has gotten video of nessy.

 

as for chad may, in interviews after the game he was going on and on about how dirty nebraska was. and he probably still whines about them being dirty to this day.

The weirdest thing about this is that Sal Aunese was 100% ineffective against Nebraska. Husker fans would have no reason to gloat at his demise.

 

This allegedly happened in 1990. Aunese hadn't been their starting quarterback in the two previous years, and Colorado had only beaten us once during Aunese's career - and that was with Darian Hagan at QB.

 

When Aunese started against Nebraska in 1988 he went 1-11 for 43 yards and no TDs. Nebraska beat Colorado 7-0 in that game. He's not someone Nebraska fans would care about. That's Eric Bienemy or Darian Hagan - those guys did all the damage to us those few years.

I was old enough to remember that time frame, and there were definitely signs and chants of "Sal is dead, GO BIG RED!"'

 

It's ok for NU fans to look ugly from time to time.  It's not a big deal.

Never heard that about LP. Not hard to believe, though.

 

Never heard that about Chad May. I would 100% believe it, though. The team did NOT like KSU in the 1990s. 

 

The Pederson thing... eh.

 

I've watched that play a lot, and Fryar does appear to deliberately drop the ball.

I'm older than you. I never heard anything like this in the stadium, and I sat in the student section when this allegedly happened. It's also interesting how the story evolved. First it was a sign on an overpass on the Interstate. Then it was graffiti, not a sign. Then there was another one in Omaha. Then it was chanted in the stadium. Then it was on a hat.

I don't think that's relevant - I'd be pissed about opposing fans chanting something similar whether it was a star player or a walk-on who never played.

I don't disagree with that, some fans are way too obsessed with being "the best fans in college football." But to me the chants would absolutely be crossing a line.

It's relevant in that Aunese didn't register with our fans. The only way we knew he was a thing was that CU was using his illness/death as a rallying cry for the season.

 

Again, none of that means that the graffiti didn't happen, or that some jackwagon(s) in the stands chanted "Sal is dead, Go Big Red" during a CU game.

 

What's really weird is that, for a relatively tame incident or two, we're still talking about it 30 years later.

 

There's stuff 10x worse than this said at games throughout the country every weekend. Why is this still a thing?

Amen!

 

Our fans would rather believe that Bo beat up a booster the morning of a game in a hotel basement and that he freaked out on a little league ump and was kicked out of the game and field (no footage of course) than the fans being jerks sometimes.

I want to believe the Cornhusker Hotel story real badly, because that's entirely in character with Bo. I'm also a fan of the "Ritchie Incognito fought the entire baseball team at a house party" story. 

 

The TO Gun story goes something like this: Riley Washington apparently robbed someone at gunpoint, apparently it was Tyronne Williams, gave the gun to TO, and he "hid" it under the auspices of waiting to turn it over to the police. 

Given Ritchie's well documented history of violence and just being an All-American A-hole....I totally believe it. Loved the dudes intensity and miss it, but that guy is a couple bricks short of a load. My all-time favorite Incognito story (completely true) is where he wanted to cut off his dead father's head at a funeral home....jeezuz.

The best way to find any evidence of Husker fans saying these things would be the Colorado 30 for 30. 

 

Is there evidence on that or is it Colorado players/coaches/fans talking about it?

 

I mean, you have film of Husker fans chanting stuff like that, that's pretty irrefutable. But if it's just CU-related people saying these things, I have no confidence in that.

Yep. Receivers don’t generally separate their hands and then let their arms flop down limp immediately after the ball hits their hands.

Opponent offenses scored less points per game in 2018 than 2017.

 

Even if they hadn’t, a defense that faces 15 more plays per game because their offense is fast is not necessarily worse even if they do allow more points. If you run a fast offense you’re choosing the risk of allowing more points just based on the simple fact that the defense tends to face more drives.

I even calculated it minus defensive scoring because I couldn’t figure out what he was on about and I got 33 in 2017 vs 29 in 2018.

There is a "bad call" and bo starts to lose it...

 

He gets so out of control that he is kicked out of the gym/field by the ref/ump...and no one filmed that s#!t???

 

I mean...when Joe Smith the dad of Tim Smith does that...it ends up on Twitter in 15 seconds...but when Bo Pelini does it NO ONE filmed it?

 

Just like Moos is sprawled out drunk at Lincoln bars and no one filmed it?  Come on.

<<pretend this is a photo of Carl's kids>>

 

 

If you didn't see any of the above people in the mirror, it should be intuitively obvious to you why it's not beneath Bo to go harass a booster at a hotel before a game who he thinks has slighted him. It sounds exactly like something he would do based on all of the other data. That's why it's a rumor that's not hard for people to believe.

 

As far as the cell phone point, it's a good one. But it doesn't mean it isn't the type of thing Bo is capable of. Again, that's why it makes for a good rumor.

There is no conjecture in what I wrote. I don't believe the hotel story. But it is absolutely within Bo's character to do something like that. I have all the information I need, it's readily available.
