Bo-files in History: 2008-14

This morning Nebraska AD Shawn Eichorst fired Bo Pelini as head coach after seven years leading the Huskers. I’ve complied Pelini’s tenure (not that he was 26-25 against teams with winning records and 40-2 versus teams under .500) complete time in Lincoln. I’d like to state that I’m wasn’t for or against the decision made today however here’s everything from his time.
