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.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
