Nebraska coach Bo Pelini had something to say about marijuana use at the 'Big Red Breakfast' Friday. Bo Pelini had several things to say about it, in fact.

Per the Omaha World-Herald, Pelini was asked to expound on some comments on the difficulties facing college coaches regarding players and their backgrounds, and responded by saying marijuana use is "out of control."

"I think everybody that's our age ... hopefully understands that it's not OK. It's not good. It's not good for you," he said. "And these kids do it on a daily basis and a yearly basis … it's a real problem out there."

"Fortunately for us it is not [an issue] in our program. But I can tell you around college football and college athletics … serious in college. I guarantee you walk into dorms nowadays and it is a horrible problem."

So, folks, there you go: Bo Pelini, not a big fan of marijuana use, at all.

The Huskers open their season Saturday as 22-point favorites at home vs. FAU.
