Bo Pelini: Harsher of Mellows

Whatever you do, don’t smuggle a one-hitter into Memorial Stadium on game day lest you want to catch this look from Bo Pelini.

Coach Pelini used his pulpit at the first Big Red Breakfast of the season to go off script and speak out against the dangers of the marijuana.

As Bo enters his 7th season as head coach and weed becomes more legal by the day, why did he wait until today to go all Nancy Reagan? It was so out of left field no one even reported on what he had to say about the upcoming season.

Pity those poor grown ups who dished out some serious loot to get a sunshine enema and ended up getting lectured on the dangers of getting the munchies.

But back to the question at hand. Why is Pelini suddenly so anti-pot?

Could it have anything to do with the NFL waiting to confirm Josh Gordon’s year-long suspension  after fantasy league drafts have taken place?

What are the odds that a guy from Ohio who was named after Ohio State and Cleveland Browns running back Bo Scott would done whatever it took to be able to draft a Cleveland Browns player who absolutely crushed it in fantasy football in 2013?

I’d say the odds are about as good as red balloons flying in the sky above Memorial Stadium sometime within the next three months.

Seriously, Bo’s rant was all Josh Gordon’s fault. Boom. Dots connected. Mystery solved.

SIDE NOTE: I played fantasy football for the first time ever last year and won a league filled with salty veterans thanks to needing a WR mid-season and picking up Josh Gordon on the basis of being the least sucky available player. That Sunday he went HAM and lead my charge from worst to first.

Bo Pelini Wears Blazer. Husker Nation Loses It.

It’s finally game week in Lincoln and the biggest news of the day was Bo Pelini absolutely rocking a red blazer at this season’s first Monday press conference.

And if that wasn’t enough,  he even smiled leading at least one fan to speculate that Bo is on the “happy pills.”

However, Ricky Fulton took to the Facebook pages of the Lincoln Journal Star and Omaha World Herald to object to the new and improved, shiny happy Pelini appearing in his newsfeed- even going so far to threaten to “block” the World Herald if it ever runs a story featuring a photo of Pelini again.

Um, Ricky, if the content of the Journal Star and World Herald appears in your newsfeed, it’s because you took the time to like their pages. In the the same place where you clicked “Like,” you can click “Unlike” and never be harassed again.

Or, you could take the time to come up with a wittier, non-repetive comment.
