Spring Fever

When the boogeyman goes to sleep, he checks his closet for Bo Pelini.

Husker football players would be well-served to check themselves before crossing their coach.

Pelini’s mantra: I am the boss. Those who don’t agree with that will immediately be consumed by a ball of fire.

Okay, maybe there won’t be any flames.   But he might just light a fire under you to get his point across.

There is not a lot of room for debate. It is going to be done certain ways. If they want to do it another way there is a lot of other Division IA football programs they can play at. There are not a lot of things that are up for discussion as far as how the game is going to be played and how we are going to go about things.

These players have received the message. They know Pelini has a track record of success, and aren’t going to mess with a Bo in a china shop.

Pelini has preached time and again that it’s not what you do, it’s how you do it. In that same vein, fans should be excited not about the outcome of the upcoming season, but in how the team will play and prepare.

“Our foundation, what we do is build on effort first and attitude and focus. Not just what you are doing, but how you are doing it,” said Pelini.

Not the victory but the action.

  1. O man I can’t wait!! Been waiting for this day since the Colorado game!!

    Schick how do you think the Huskers will do next season right now? Before spring practice happens…

  2. Kyle,

    Including a bowl game, I believe this team will finish the year 8-4. No worse. They’ll fly around on defense, and actually find their footing more consistently on offense. It isn’t that difficult of a schedule. Road games in Norman and Lubbock will be tough to win, while they will split their two toughest home games between Virginia Tech and Missouri. They should get out of the box 4-1.


  3. Well I can wait.

    Although I’m excited about taking my 3 and 4 year olds to their first football game (the spring game) April 19th, I can certainly wait for next season to kick-off. I’m sick of winter and there’s a few things I’d like to do before August 30th.

    1. Watch the rest of the NCAA Basketball Championships. (My personal calender says when it’s done winter’s done.)
    2. Go Morel mushroom and wild asparagus hunting.
    3. Catch a few Baseball games. Huskers, Bluejays, and even a couple of ‘pick your seat’ Royals games.
    4. Go Walleye/Pike fishing.
    5. Go to the CWS.
    6. Catch Ralston’s 4th of July Parade.
    7. In between all that, spend some time on my back patio in shorts and a T-shirt grillin’ and chillin’!

    BTW my bracket’s still alive. Wisconsin beats Kansas in the Elite Eight. Texas beats Memphis, UCLA advances. North Carolina wins it all.

    Go Big Red (next fall of course).
