Welcome to day two of the post-Pelini era for the Huskers. It is currently 16 in Lincoln with cloudy skies and windchill a balmy 1 degree.
The weather couldn’t be more perfect following a break up. Gloom and bone chilling cold. Good thing no recruits are coming to town anytime soon.
Pair that with most folks having to return to the daily slog of work life following Thanksgiving weekend and you have the perfect combo for one of the shittiest Mondays of the year.
But who woke up still happy from yesterday’s news that Pelini got the ax? Athletic Director Shawn Eichort’s early Sunday announcement gave Husker fans a solid 12 hours to blow their wads on the Facebook and the Twitter.
Could anyone really not be tuckered from talking Pelini and the Huskers?
But what is a little refreshing is the “don’t let the door hit you on the way out” smugness has at least been turned down a notch.
Not that that’s a good thing.
WTF: Does this even mean, Evan? Are you saying all the meals at the training table made the Huskers bulimic?

Your days are numbered, Sean Callahan. Shayla has the rumor mill on lock down.
That’s funny. Twitter said Jim Tressel was spotted in Lincoln yesterday.
Besides, Barney Cotton is now the Huskers’ head coach.
Clearly Jeremy has never experienced the joy of Lincoln’s cheaper-than-Mexico beer prices.
Man. Bo Pelini getting fired is not how I wanted to celebrate Ben Stiller's birthday.

Us too brother, us too. And on a related note, has anyone else found The Secret Life of Walter Mitty to be totally unwatchable?
Cool your jets, Austin. Your zingers are lost on a spam bot.
Wait. How did I miss Bo Pelini getting fired? #MackBrownCurse

Sometimes when you miss news or another big happening, it’s OK to not share your cluelessness with the world.

A mind blowing gem from the “classiest fans in college football.”
Maxipad bringing the Monday morning thunder!
So far through my morning search I've yet to see any cyber Monday deals on a new head football coach #Huskers

Well played, Andrew. This was actually kinda clever.
It's an unfollow Monday for me! I gotta clean up some garbage in my timeline so I can focus on this #Huskers coaching search!

Or, you could make a list of your favorite Husker tweeters and have a dedicated stream that is everything you want with none of the annoying filler.
Yes. Yes they did, Thomas. Crazy comebacks were a hallmark of the Pelini era.

And we thought we had it rough having to make a new banner for our site.
(For the record: These Tweets were found either searching Huskers, Bo Pelini, or Bo Pelini fired.)
