ESPN: “Pelini improved to 67-27 as Nebraska’s coach on Friday with a 37-34 overtime win at Iowa. The victory pushed Pelini’s win total past Tom Osborne for the most ever at the school in a coach’s first seven years.”
Good luck finding a coach to replace nine wins per season.

Interesting, but not surprising. Colleges want to be in the national title hunt every year. At the end of the day Nebraska has to ask themselves what they’re willing to settle for. Fresno State had a similar situation with Pat Hill. He had a good record, and some good wins, but at the end of the day FSU wanted more. Either way.
Here’s the best part: “Pelini is owed $7.65 million by Nebraska on his contract, extended after last season through February 2019.” So it appears that they’re going to pay Pelini not to live in freezing cold Nebraska for the next few winters. Sign me up.
