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, ┬áhe 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.

Ameer Abdullah Gets Extra Slippery With New Adidas Jersey

Over the weekend the Lincoln Journal Star let Ameer Abdullah’s slippery new secret weapon out of the bag.

By all accounts Abdullah will be the first running back in college football to wear adidas’ new line of guacamole injected gear. If you thought he could slip through a hole like a greased pig before, wait till you see how he does slathered in $68 worth of guacamole upgrades at Chipotle. How adidas was able to keep such an innovative, technological achievement under wraps until a just a week before game day is some Skunk Works level secrecy.

Or, upon further review, this spy shot could have been recycled from the Gator Bowl against Georgia- a game highlighted by mud, a ridiculous 99 yard bomb, and a hard-fought Husker victory over a worthy SEC opponent or an injury riddled SEC-also-ran, depending on your world view.
