    I have spent some time rewatching a lot of the Bo Pelini era on YouTube since sports went away. This got me thinking, if someone were to write a book on the Bo Pelini era at Nebraska, what are some must have chapters that the book would need to include?

    My votes:
    2009 Big 12 Championship game (0:01)
    2010 Texas A&M game (Pelini-Martinez sideline incident)
    2011 Ohio State game (largest comeback and taped Pelini post-game leak)

    What’s the point of this? Most of us don’t want to be reminded of his time at Nebraska.

    Just for fun. It was an interesting era, with some controversy throughout, depending on who you ask. Rewatching these games made me nostalgic. Wasn't as bad as everyone remembers when you consider we never lost more than 4 games.

    I have a title — The Sound and the Fury.

    “A man is the sum of his misfortunes. One day you'd think misfortune would get tired but then time is your misfortune."

    “Because no battle is ever won he said. They are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly and despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools."

    “Once a bitch always a bitch, what I say.”

    Does anyone ever wonder what would have happened if Solich HC + Pelini DC would have been given a few more years to settle in?

    “We’re back” should be the title. Bo declared that after we demolished Arizona in the Holiday Bowl. I was there in attendance that night.

    say what you want about Bo - at least he showed some emotion on the sideline. Never looked like he was shocked/about to cry in a loss or indifferent

    I bought into it. Still think 2010 was Bo’s best team. Had a really good defense and offense. Don’t think we’ve had good multiple units since 2001(except 2010). A crying shame that we lost 4 games that year.

    True. And it’s also true that you are a troll.
