Back to "The Nebraska Way"
Welcome back to Nebraska Quin Pelini…you haven’t been here a week, and you already have your QB of the future, Pat Witt charged with disturbing the peace, trespassing, 3rd degree assault by menacing threats (ooo..that’s a good one) and minor in possession by consuming and possession of a fake ID. (Which..let’s face it…who here hasn’t?). And right off the bat, old Bo is doing things just the way dear old Tom would have…
“This matter will be dealt with internally”. Wow….that’s good stuff. Really Bo? When? In between running 4 and 4 drills in Baton Rogue? Perhaps via videophone? Or better yet, is Witt going to be punished by serving drinks at Nancy Osborne's next Bunko night?
Now I know what you’re saying….dude came into Lincoln with a 4.0 GPA, and now is charged with making threats and physically pushing an officer…(and then ran from him). It must be Callahan's fault! I realize we’re going to get the whole “boys will be boys” line from most of you…but come on. This isn’t exactly throwing a paper cup at some girl’s car now is it? (Looking back on that..you all should have been proud JC even hit the car with his accuracy).
So will Pelini slam the hammer down on Paddy Witt and make an example out of him? Will he simply wait for the cameras to turn off, give him a hug and a wink and tell him to play it cool next time? Only time will tell. I will give you credit though…just when I think we’re in an absolute black hole of topics…along comes a Husker QB to get into it wih the law. If Callahan's precident still stands...look for P Witt to be learning his lesson from Larry the Cable Guy's suite in week one.
Why I didn’t predict this a while ago is beyond me. Should be interesting to see how this whole thing pans out. I’m sure by the time LSU is done with their season, all will be forgotten. (If it isn't already)
Seems like old times indeed.
PS – SAVE it Creighton fans. I realize some of you went to school there. Some of you may have gone to a basketball camp in 1986 or whatever. Regardless, it doesn’t give you an excuse to completely distance yourself from Husker fans. DO NOT Pretend like you don’t cheer for Nebraska football, because I know for a fact 95% of you do. Why should you get a free pass? Poor TRUE Husker fan doesn’t get a pass. His team is off losing to SIU-Edwardsville and Western Kentucky, but at least he only acts like a prick from March through January.
Creighton fan earns a special place in my heart, not because they “cheer for a winning team”, but because they “cheer” for a fraud. It would be one thing if the Brie Jays were actually some sort of dominant force in college basketball.
If your biggest win of the season is 5 point rout over Northern Iowa…your team isn’t very good. I don’t care how many “mid major” upsets go on in March…he’ll PATRIOT LEAGUE teams win in the tourney…but their fans don’t act like arrogant jackasses about it.
And no, it doesn’t help that certain media outlets around here stick their tongue in Dana Altman’s ear. To top it off, everybody already knows that when Creighton was playing at the Civic and the press room was catered with pretzels and Mountain Dew, nobody with a camera gave a rat’s ass about you. But now that Orange Ruffy and Crème Brule are on the menu, here comes the hype machine.
And I’m already sick of it…and it’s not even Christmas yet.
