It appears a war of words has developed between Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Bo Pelini and former Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier. The 39-year-old Frazier criticized Pelini and his staff after the Cornhuskers squandered a 21-3 lead against the UCLA Bruins on Saturday.
And I thought people from the Midwest were supposed to be nice.
Here’s what Frazier had to say:
How in the hell do you not make adjustments or put your players in the position to compete? If this is what is going to happen for the remainder of the season, count me out. I don’t care if we lose a game but the way we are losing is just not what #Nebraska fans deserve. I have fought, bled and cried over this program. I didn’t do all that for the program to become what it has today. Time for change! (ESPN)
(It’s worth noting that Frazier released this rant on Twitter and didn’t actually say “hashtag Nebraska” out loud.)
If he feels like that, then so be it. We don’t need him. That’s a shame. Until you’ve sat in this seat, until you’ve sat here and done it, anybody can have an opinion. It’s easy to point fingers when you stand outside and throw stones.
Frazier, however, landed the final blow: “I said what I said. He’s right: He doesn’t need me. He needs someone to help him. But what he’s doing is not what Nebraska fans deserve, period.”
