Nebraska coaches not happy with officials

December, 6, 2009
Apparently, the Nebraska coaches were not thrilled with how the Big 12 championship game ended, with replay officials putting another second on the clock, allowing Texas to kick the winning field goal for a 13-12 victory.

The Pelini brothers, just after the game ended, were yelling and asking for Walt Anderson, the Big 12 coordinator of officials and even Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe. Check it out in this Houston Chornicle story:

An enraged Bo Pelini demanded justice.

“I want to see Walt Anderson right now!” the Nebraska coach screamed to no one in particular, referring to the Big 12's coordinator of football officials.

Then his brother, Nebraska defensive coordinator Carl Pelini, chimed in.

“It's the same footsteps with the trophy,” he said. “They ought to be ashamed to accept that trophy.”

He fell silent but then resumed his rant.

“That's what this conference is about,” he added. “The (expletive) BCS.”
