LINCOLN — Though it's actually as flat as a washboard, Bo Pelini has always been a guy to coach with gut. His strategic compass, however intricate it might seem, still points true chutzpah. He doesn't get easily discouraged. And if he does, the mood does not last very long.
He took all of five minutes to move past the back-cracking he got in his old Horseshoe stomping grounds before declaring Nebraska had to “win out.” He took perhaps a night to mourn his team's fetid performance in the Big Ten title game before choosing Georgia as a bowl opponent.
