Nebraska coach Bo Pelini is having a really bad couple of days.
After UCLA embarrassed his Huskers on Saturday, former Nebraska quarterback (and College Football Hall of Famer) Tommie Frazier called for Pelini’s ouster on Monday.
Now, Deadspin has obtained and released 2011 audio of a Pelini profanity-laced tirade pointed at fans and media.
And it's not pretty (earmuffs on the kids, people), even if it is two years old.
Is releasing a tape today that was recorded two years ago gratuitous piling on? Absolutely, but it's still going to fuel fire for Pelini's ouster.
The audio was taken after Nebraska had rallied from a three-touchdown deficit to defeat Ohio State in Lincoln. According to the website, Pelini was readying to do his postgame radio interview with Greg Sharpe of the Husker Sports Network when he decided to let some candid comments fly first.
When the Huskers trailed, fans made their way to the exits, which didn’t sit well with Pelini: "It took everything in my power to not say, 'F--- you, fans. F--- all of you.' F--- 'em."
An unidentified woman then informs Pelini several of the fans came back but that doesn’t seem to make Pelini any happier:
"Our crowd. What a bunch of f---ing fair-weather f-----g—they can all kiss my a-- out the f---ing door. 'Cause the day is f---ing coming now. We'll see what they can do when I'm f---ing gone. I'm so f---ing pissed off."
Pelini also has some colorful comments about Omaha World-Herald beat writer Dirk Chatelain and columnist Tom Shatel.
The whole audio is, um, interesting, but not at all shocking if you’ve followed Pelini’s antics during his time with the Huskers.
Is it time to add Pelini to the hot seat list with Texas’ Mack Brown and USC’s Lane Kiffin? Listen to the audio and you decide.
