LINCOLN — Tom Osborne wouldn't say how or if he disciplined Bo Pelini upon learning of the audiotape that eventually went public Monday, but on Wednesday he recalled telling the Nebraska football coach that it “could really be damaging to the program.”

The audio was first brought to Osborne's attention by Chris Anderson of the NU athletic department last fall, more than a year after the Pelini rant was taped without his knowledge on Oct. 8, 2011, in the aftermath of the Huskers' emotional 34-27 comeback win over Ohio State.
