OMAHA – Bo Pelini veered off topic a little Friday morning at the Big Red Breakfast and took a strong stance against marijuana, telling a crowd of about 250 people that it’s a “real problem out there.”
Pelini called it not only an issue in high schools, middle schools and even grade schools, but society in general, saying: “It is out of control.”
“Let’s face it, it’s not OK,” Pelini said. “I think everybody that’s our age, my age, hopefully understands that it’s not OK. It’s not good. It’s not good for you. And these kids do it on a daily basis and a yearly basis … and it’s a real problem out there.
“Fortunately for us it is not (an issue) in our program. But I can tell you around college football and college athletics … serious in college. I guarantee you walk into dorms nowadays and it is a horrible problem.”
Pelini at earlier times Friday was discussing the modern challenges that coaches face and what they see with players, families and backgrounds.
His comments about marijuana followed when he was asked to expound.
“I think it’s something in society we need to get fixed, but unfortunately they get bad information,” he said.
Damnit Bo! What the hell! We were doing so well. Bo Pelini used to be the guy who was known by everybody as the mediocre football coach who kept getting in hot water for screaming at everybody all the time. His biggest hit was getting caught on tape telling fans to fuck themselves. Then, after an entire summer of viral videos and pictures, some funny aloof poses, we carefully cultivated an image of a guy who maybe wasn’t so bad after all. Maybe he was actually pretty chill.
Well you can cancel all that right now. Marijuana is out of control? It’s ruining society? Hey Bo how much of a square are you bro? The answer is total square. Sorry Bo, back to grumpy old dickhole for you.
PS – Yeah “fortunately for you it’s not a problem in your program.” Haha. Be more clueless dude. You have a bunch of college aged kids in the middle of the fucking corn fields of Nebraska. What exactly do you think they’re doing in their free time?
