Carl Pelini is sorry too, everybody

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini has already apologized for the way he acted during Saturday night's loss against Texas A&M, that behavior generally consisting of testing the boundaries of the human ear drum and vocal chords.  Well, Bo wasn't the only member of the Pelini family who acted somewhat regrettably on Saturday night.

Carl Pelini got a bit handsy with a cameraman following the game, and when I say handsy, I mean he went after the cameraman and knocking the camera out of his hands.  If you don't believe me, check out the video here.

Well, much like his brother did on Monday, Carl wanted to let everybody know he's sorry on Tuesday.

“I apologize for the events that occurred after Saturday night’s game at Texas A&M," Carl Pelini said in a statement. "It was a very emotional situation and the mob scene on the field after the game amplified that. Having been involved in a similar situation in 2003 at Missouri, and in witnessing the situation on the field, I made a poor decision in trying to prevent a reporter from recording the scene. I have acknowledged this from the very beginning. Unfortunately, in trying to prevent a scene, I created one. We have been in contact with Brandon Jones and I have apologized to him directly for putting my hands on his camera. I offered to pay for any damages to the camera, but Brandon indicated there were none."

While there may be no physical damage to the camera, there's no word on what kind of emotional distress the camera felt due to the incident.
