The University of Nebraska won't punish Cornhuskers head football coach Bo Pelini after a profanity-laced rant directed at Nebraska fans two years ago was recorded and went viral this week.

The University of Nebraska won't punish head football coach Bo Pelini for his profanity-laced rant which went viral online. 

Both Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman and athletics director Shawn Eichorst affirmed this via a joint statement they released, per USA Today Sports' Scott Gleeson.

"The comments made by head football coach Bo Pelini in 2011, published Monday, are unfortunate and deeply concerning to us, as they would be to anyone who loves this university. Our coaches, staff and student-athletes must be held to a high standard and Coach Pelini's remarks were unfair to the legions of Nebraska fans and not what we expect from a representative of this university.

"Former Director of Athletics Tom Osborne became aware of these comments and existence of the recording more than a year ago, and addressed the matter with coach Pelini. We have observed, and many others have commented, that Coach Pelini's demeanor has significantly improved since the time of this incident.

"Coach Pelini has given us his assurance that he understands the seriousness and inappropriateness of his comments. We believe he is sincere in his apology and in his regret. We are prepared to put the matter to rest. Our football student-athletes, coaches and staff deserve all of our support and we know the Nebraska faithful will be there for them."  

Osborne, who retired on New Year's Day 2013, remembered telling Pelini that the audio tape "could really be damaging to the program," writes Rich Kaipust of the Omaha World-Herald. He also wouldn't specify details of his meeting with Pelini after the audio leaked out. 

"He's an adult person and he knows the consequences. So we worked it out. My main objective was to try to help Bo and make things better."  

Pelini expressed his apologies to the media on Tuesday. The day after, he told SiriusXM Radio he has an "idea" of who is behind the audio.

"I think we're a lot closer to (knowing), if it hasn't been completely determined already. I have an idea (of who it is)."

DeadSpin.com released a copy of the expletive-laden audio on Monday with Pelini talking to Greg Sharpe of the Husker Sports Network venting out and ripping two Omaha World-Herald columnists, including Tom Shatel, after a 34-27 win over the Ohio State Buckeyes on October 8, 2011. 

He then vented his ire on Cornhuskers fans saying,"Our crowd. What a bunch of f-----g fair-weather f-----g -- they can all kiss my a-- out the f-----g door."

Nebraska was down by three touchdowns at the half and a lot of fans were reported to have left the game at that point.

Chart suggests college football polls tend to be biased against the ACC

Oct 30 2014 1:58pm CDT | Source: SBNation

And suggests SEC teams tend to rank about a spot better than, say, Big 12 teams of similar quality. SEC bias has become one of the storylines of 2014's college football season, with four teams from its West division ranking in the top four of the computer consensus and in the top six of the first official College Football Playoff rankings. This arrived after multiple ESPN personalities addressed charges of conference bias during Sa ...

Coaching Search: How Likely Are Top 25 College Football Coaches To Leave?

Oct 29 2014 2:20pm CDT | Source: The Big Lead

College football head coaching positions will be available this winter. With television revenue distributed evenly within conferences, there may not be that many head coaches to fill them. It’s a bit premature. We’re not even sure who will be making the hire at Michigan yet. But, here’s a look at the current Top 25, with the probability of them leaving on a scale from 1-5. Keep an eye on Dan Mullen and Rich Rodriguez. 1. Dan Mullen [Mississippi State - 4.0] Mullen has ties, albeit compl ...

Lincoln – In a game that saw Bo Pelini (Blake Headley) play third base and a yellow teletubby (Wes Edrington) hit a home run off the left-field foul pole, the Red squad got a walkoff bases-loaded single by the White Power Ranger (Nathan Chunn) in the bottom of the sixth inning that gave the Reds a 5-4 win and a 2-1 series win in the a ...

Michigan's upcoming coaching search is perilous, but necessary

Sep 29 2014 10:25am CDT | Source: SBNation

There is little chance of rebounding for Brady Hoke at Michigan. Once athletic director Dave Brandon acknowledges this -- if he's not gone, too -- who's next for the Wolverines? Brady Hoke didn't become a terrible coach overnight. He didn't wake up one morning having forgotten every coaching lesson. Hoke is still the man who led Ball State to its first bowl game in more than a decade in 2007, then brought the Cardinals to the BCS ...

Nebraska Football: How the Cornhuskers Can Avoid Looking Ahead to Michigan State

Sep 25 2014 9:14pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Nebraska football fans will still be savoring the Cornhuskers’ win over Miami last week, but by this stage will already be worrying about facing Illinois on Saturday. Not about the Illini themselves, of course, but about how Nebraska could be overlooking Illinois in preparation for a monster game against Michigan State the following week. Of course, if Nebraska stubs its toe against Illinois on Saturda ...

College Football Rankings 2014 Week 4: Top 25 Teams on Upset Alert This Weekend

Sep 20 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Top 25 teams in college football were put on notice last week—no spot in the polls is safe, easy matchup or not.Really, it is a lesson that should not need reviewing. Old adages such as "That's why they play the game" exist for good reason. Last week's schedule seemed yawn-worthy, but then USC traveled to Boston College and lost, Virginia Tech got upended by Eastern Carolina, among other clo ...

Michigan and Nebraska must carry more of the Big Ten's load

Sep 12 2014 12:58pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Michigan State and Ohio State were prominently featured in the Big Ten's very bad Saturday, but they aren't what's wrong with the conference. Last weekend, what was shaping up to be one of the best time slots of the first month of college football in 2014 turned into yet another instance of "let's all laugh at the Big Ten." The league's prime time participants all came up short. Michigan State, a team known for its defense, allowed ...

Did you even *see* how many points Memphis scored, AP voters? Dear poll voters: You're doing it wrong. You clearly didn't watch the same Week 1 that I did. Georgia? The Dawgs won by 24 against Clemson, which isn't even a state. Texas A&M? Sure, they beat South Carolina, but how would they do against a real Carolina, like East Carolina? Baylor? Michigan State? Oklahoma? We've seen better. The math tells us. If you're going to base your p ...
