I'm writing this as the news conference is being held. It's official. Bo Pelini has been chosen to be the new head coach for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Pelini is leaving his position as defensive coordinator at LSU to taking on the daunting task as the replacement for Bill Callahan.
Bo Pelini was once the defensive coordinator at Nebraska under former head coach, Frank Solich. When Callahan came in, Pelini was sent out and went on to help LSU get to where they are today.
As a die-hard Husker fan, I'm thrilled to hear that Pelini will be coming back to Nebraska. Bill Callahan had no idea how much we Nebraskans love our football, and when he came right out and said that he was doing away with the old Nebraska playbook and bringing in a West Coast offense, we knew our days were numbered.
I don't expect Nebraska to be the #1 team in the nation come next year, I do know that it's going to take a little time to get things back to where we're used to them being. I do know that with Bo Pelini heading the team, we're going to fight our way back to the top, and it's only a matter of time before the Nebraska Cornhuskers are #1 again.
