Head coach Bo Pelini and the Nebraska Cornhuskers hit the field on Saturday for their annual spring scrimmage as they get set to make a run in the Big Ten this season, and even before the game got underway, Pelini had everyone around the college football world talking.
Prior to the game, he and the team did their tunnel walk, only for this outing, Pelini brought along his cat for the tradition:
Pelini’s cat is most famous for being the centerpiece of the feud between Pelini and his twitter parody, @FauxPelini. The battle escalated during the BCS National Championship Game this past January when the real Pelini tweeted at the fake one, asking for the beloved cat back.
Spring games aren’t just a time for coaches and fans to get a look at their teams prior to the season starting, they’re also a time to have some fun as we have to sit through a long summer before the season begins, and no one brought more fun on Saturday than the Nebraska coach.
