If you've ever watched a Nebraska game while Bo Pelini has been serving as head coach, you know that Pelini is a bit, shall we say, intense. He's not just out there to have a good time as much as it seems he wants to eat your soul, spit it out and then kick it across the football field. A process that was well documented on television last season when Pelini got into quarterback Taylor Martinez's face during a game against Texas A&M.

Don't worry, those two have since kissed and made up.

Still, Pelini's reputation has not changed. So much so that the word "Pelini" is now included in the Urban Dictionary. I bet you can't guess what it means!
Pelini - A violent rage that cannot be controlled, often expressed in Tourette's-like cursing accompanied with demonic facial contortions. An angry sense of entitlement that will cause you to treat anyone around you with contempt and physical brutality, including game officials, innocent cameramen or possibly your own team.
Oh man, I bet Bo Pelini is going to go Pelini when he finds out.

Bo Pelini cracks the Urban Dictionary

Aggie 63 - The Nebraska Football team goes to class - team average GPA was a 3.0, the highest for a Husker Football team in 23 years.  In fact, the academic success of Husker student-athletes is well-documented. Nebraska has had more Academic All-Americans than any school in the nation.

Please do your homework before you make such an "unacademic" comment

Bo Pelini cracks the Urban Dictionary

Yes, I am an A&M fan and we owe a lot to the bi-polar Pelinis. Without their contortions, physical assaults on players, outbursts of rage, general out of control behavior and profanity on the sidelines of the 11-20-2010 game against UNL (9-6 A&M), we clearly would not have won the game against a team with VASTLY superior talent. Sixteen penalites in all, two against the bench for unsportsmanlike conduct, about eight for false starts, and various others for unsportsmanlike conduct, roughing the passer, etc., we never could have won without Bo's contribution. The false starts were due to players' fear of retaliation from Bo and Carl if they did not get off the line fast enough.

Any time UNL loses, its fans blame the referees and this game was no exception. I never heard so much whining and complaining.  Carl Pelini attacked a cameraman after the game. What they cannot seem to comprehend is that the Big 12 was different than the Big 8. Far higher academic standards in the Big 12, The kids actually had to go to class!

So, UNL fans, understand the following--Tom Osborne is no longer the coach, things have changed and the academic requirements in the Big 10 are just as high as the Big 12. You can no longer expect to win every game or win a national championship every 3 years.

I am glad you have the Pelinis. They would not fit in anywhere else.

Bo Pelini cracks the Urban Dictionary

It's pretty awesome I must say.  I agree with the passion amendment.  It's not that he's an evil man full of hate for anything that stands in his way, he is just very passionate about football, and is not afraid to "voice" his opinion.

Bo Pelini cracks the Urban Dictionary

I too am a Husker fan and love that Bo made the Urban Dictionary.  It shouls read a violent rage fueld by passion that cannot be controlled.  Cannot wait to see how they define "Getting Tresselled".

Go Big Red!!  Go Huskers!!!
