Pelini sheds fondness for Ohio State

LINCOLN, Neb.

To Bo Pelini, Nebraska’s visit to Ohio Stadium this week is strictly business.

There’s no time for something as frivolous as admitting to fond memories of his playing days at Ohio State.

That was the Nebraska coach’s message Monday when he was asked if taking his No. 21 Huskers (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) into the “Horseshoe” to play the 12th-ranked Buckeyes (5-0, 1-0) made him feel nostalgic.

“Why would it?” he said.

When it was suggested that lots of folks have a soft spot for their alma mater, Pelini said he once did — but not anymore.

“I’m at a different time in my life, a different place,” he said. “I mean, I have a job to do. That’s all I’m concerned with.”

Pelini didn’t play on vintage Ohio State teams. The Buckeyes were 25-18-3 over his four years (1986-90), never finished higher than a tie for third in the Big Ten and went to two bowls.

Looks like Nebraska mirrors Pelini record when he played for OSU. Never better than 3rd place! I bet he wishes he wasnt in the big ten anymore! Kick their butts Buckeyes!
Kick their butts!
