Pelini Gets Backing

Pelini Gets Backing

Nebraska is sticking behind head football coach Bo Pelini.  Tom Osborne issued a statement of support Wednesday.  He says he knew last year about the profanity-laced audio tape from 2011 in which Pelini rips Huskers fans for being “fair-weather.”  Nebraska looks to bounce back from a loss to UCLA, hosting South Dakota State on Saturday.
