I normally laugh at the misfortune of Nebraska and Pelini, but the roughing the passer call was bogus. Considering that's two major questionable calls going against Nebbie (last year's Big 12 game) I'd be ****** if I were a Nebraska fan.
What was the bad call in last years big 12 championship? I don't remember any mistakes being made in that one.

Everytime I see Bo and his arrogant brother I just get this strong feeling that I want to punch their face in. The way he harrased that official was obsurd. Bo and Carl couldn't be a better representation to that university.
Props to the chancellor for stepping up and saying something about it. Somebody needs to talk with Pelini and it can't be Osborne because he'll just defend him and give him a weak slap on the wrist. The cameramen know to constantly monitor him because his emotional outbursts makes for good TV. He's going to have to dial it down a notch
Unless the kid did a cheap shot on the field or disrespected a coach on the sidelines, you in no way should get in his face like that. You can be upset with a player and let him know it to his face but foaming at the mouth and poking your finger in his chest is a little much
I loved his comment to the ref after having one of his players called for unnecessary roughness, "That's football". I think that pretty much says how Pelini coaches. He doesn't care if his players cheap shot someone. We've seen those plays all season and to hear the coach say that is football just shows what kind of respect he has for sportsmanship.
I live in Omaha and I can already hear the comments coming. After reading this thread, I watched the game and every one of those calls (except the roughing the passer) was a legit call BUT...this game was not lost because of refs. The fact is that A&M out played Nebraska. They should have won.
I grew up a Nebraska fan before I saw the light and I can't stand Bo. I have never seen a coach yell at players and refs more. I can't believe that TO would even think of allowing that to happen. I really hope Colorado beats the pants off of Nebby so that Nebraska doesn't go out of the Big 12 winning the North. That would actually make the fact that we aren't going to a bowl a little less painful.
