During his tenure as the head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Bo Pelini has had more than a few animated moments. Some have gone as far as referring to him as Mt. Pelini, suggesting he is a volcano ready to erupt. Saturday, in a lopsided loss to Iowa, Pelini got into with an official to the point where the official called a penalty on Pelini, giving the Hawkeyes 15 yards and helping them set up a touchdown. The Big Ten announced that Pelini will receive no further penalty over the incident.
Many onlookers were quick to criticize Pelini, some going as far as suggesting Pelini should be fired over this latest incident, suggesting he had become known more for his eruptions than the team on the field. This announcement is also coming under fire from critics, unable to believe nothing was done in addition to the penalty.
The loss and the tirade had many in the media questioning Pelini after the game about his job security, which prompted Pelini to say if they wanted to fire him, go ahead, but that he was proud of the work he and his staff had done in Lincoln. The Nebraska first year Athletic Director has come out and said Pelini is to be kept on next year over the weekend.
