The Big Red faces off against the Spartans of San Jose State on Saturday. The Spartans boast a B-rated spread offense and a Dick-Tomey-coached aggressive defense.
Here are a few nuggets of wisdom as you contemplate blowing the kids' lunch money on the $30 pay-per-view broadcast.
1. Bo Pelini is quite the prankster...the hubbub around the state capital yesterday was the head coach yanking everybody's crank as he sat down for the press. "That was the worst practice I've been a part of in all my years of coaching," Pelini stated before relinquishing, "Just kidding."
As reported in the Lincoln Journal Star, the Husker press corps really got a kick out of that zinger. The LJS failed to note that following the joke, Tom Shatel held up something from the back row and yelled, "Hey Bo, you prankster, you almost got me with this phony dog poo!" Pelini responded matter of factly, "What phony dog poo?"
2. Turner Gill's Buffalo Bulls take on Steve Pederson's Pitt Panthers on Saturday. Coming off Buffalo's 42-17 dismantling of UTEP in Week One, Gill's squad will definitely have Pitt Head Coach Dave Wannstedt's attention.
It's been a hard week for the 'Stache. First, his team dumps the season opener to Bowling Green, then Norelco fires him as pitch man for the Touchdown Tickler Beard & Moustache Trimmer.
3. Don't be surprised if Cody Glenn plays a little more subdued this week. Rumor is the Big Red coaching staff busted him snorting lines of crushed crisp-meat burritos and free-basing ranch last week.
Looks like he'll have eat his Amigos the old fashion way—on the bathroom floor, Hasselhoff-style, after two Jack & Coke fishbowls and 12 shots of Blackhaus.
