Bo Pelini Fires Back at Tommie Frazier


Following Nebraska’s 41–21 blowout loss to UCLA on Saturday, former Cornhuskers QB Tommie Frazier posted an impassioned tweet calling for a complete overhaul to the defensive coaching staff.  “If this is what is going to happen for the remainder of the season, count me out,” Frazier wrote.

Head coach Bo Pelini didn’t take kindly to Frazier’s well-founded criticism on Monday:

“We have a staff, players and administration — everybody here — who’s busting their butt to do everything we can to win football games and to do everything we can for student-athletes,” Pelini said, according to Omaha.com. “Since I came back here, I’ve embraced the former players, and if he feels like that, so be it. We don’t need him. That’s a shame. Until you’ve sat in this seat — until you’ve sat and done it — anybody can have an opinion. Anybody can do that. It’s easy to point fingers and stand outside and throw stones. I take it for what it is.”

Frazier took to Twitter again afterward:

Insulting perhaps the most popular player in Nebraska history is not going to endear Pelini to a fan base that’s already started calling for his head.

He ought to ask predecessor Bill Callahan what happens when you show disrespect for Cornhusker lore.
