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.”
Somebody’s gonna get fired over that. I’d be figthing mad if it happened to me!
A spelling error on football stadium soft drink cups will forever mark this weekend’s Notre Dame game as the day of the ‘Figthing Irish.’ The typo was found on the 50-ounce cups sold at concession stands throughout Notre Dame Stadium, which boasts room for over 80,000 thirsty fans. The $8 cups quickly became fodder for jokes on social media and have just as quickly become a collector’s item. ‘Figthing Irish’? Concession cups at Notre Dame football stadium were sold Saturday with the team’s name spelled incorrectly The Catholic University is known for its brawling leprechaun mascot more than for biblical fruits and the cups were, of course, supposed to read ‘Fighting Irish.’ Notre Dame refuses to say how many cups were shipped, but insists the error will be corrected by the next home game.

The real question is: what kind of kid still wears a watch (and an expensive one to boot) these days? They all just check their cell phones for the current time, assuming they’re not texting at tht time.
Oregon City High School football coach Kevin Strasser was arrested Tuesday in connection with a watch that a former student reported as stolen last year. Strasser was charged with official misconduct and first-degree theft, a class C felony — a crime that means the pilfered item is valued at more than $1,000. Police said the watch was found at a Clackamas County pawn shop after the student lost it at the end of last school year. They identified the suspect as Strasser, who is also a teacher at Oregon City and arrested at his Milwaukie home. Staff members at A1 Pawn Shop in Glandstone said Strasser sold the watch for less than $100. The watch was an Ice Time brand. The company’s website lists watches that cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars up to $34,999.

Probably NOT the best coaching technique: a volunteer football coach at Lakeridge High School (OR) faces assault charges after he allegedly punched a player. Probably doesn’t help that he’s 6’7″ and about 270 lbs.
Lake Oswego police arrested Michael James Cole Tuesday night. Cole came to the police station to talk to police following the incident and was arrested after questioning, according to Lake Oswego Sgt. Tom Hamann. According to KGW’s news partner the Oregonian, the 6-foot-7, 265 pound volunteer coach jumped in when players began shoving each other. Hamann says Cole allegedly punched one of the players in the face. One of the other coaches ran over and pulled him off the victim and told Cole to leave. The player did not need medical attention. Hamann says he had a cut and a swollen lip. He’s not being identified by Lake Oswego Police as he’s a minor.
