The guys at Deadspin.com got their hands on some audio from two years ago of Nebraska football coach Bo “I Have a Job for Now” Pelini as he allegedly blasts fair-weather Husker fans and the media. He sure seems to enjoy dropping them f-bombs, doesn’t he?
In the recording, Pelini is talking to Sharpe and to a woman whose identity we’ve been unable to determine. Pelini initially seems upset with an unknown person who works at the Omaha World-Herald, whom he calls “a piece of shit.” [Update (5:31 p.m.): As another reader has since noted, Pelini wasn’t happy with the World-Herald’s Dirk Chatelain during his presser after the Ohio State game. Pelini had been angry about this Chatelain column.] Pelini then begins venting about World-Herald columnist Tom Shatel: “F*ck him, too. F*ck him. That’s what I’m going to tell him. He wants to walk out after my press conference? I’m gonna say, ‘Get the f*ck away from me. I’m done with you, motherf*cker.’ I’m done with him.”
All of that is just the prelude to Pelini’s message for the Huskers’ fans: “It took everything in my power to not say, ‘F*ck you, fans. F*ck all of you.’ F*ck ‘em.” After Sharpe says a lot of students had left at halftime, the woman starts to say that people did return to their seats. Pelini interjects: “Our crowd. What a bunch of f*cking fair-weather f*cking—they can all kiss my ass out the f*cking door. ‘Cause the day is f*cking coming now. We’ll see what they can do when I’m f*cking gone. I’m so f*cking pissed off.”
