Huskers forgive rant

THURSDAY, SEPT. 19, 2013

Nebraska is ready to move on from Bo Pelini’s profane rant against fans two years ago. Chancellor Harvey Perlman and athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in a joint statement Wednesday that they believe the football coach was sincere in his apology for what he said in an audio leaked to the Deadspin.com sports website this week. There was no mention of any disciplinary action taken against Pelini. Pelini’s rant has captivated a Cornhuskers fan base that has sold out an NCAA-record 328 consecutive games since 1962. Pelini became unhinged minutes after the Huskers had beaten Ohio State 34-27 in Lincoln in October 2011. – AP
