Earlier today, both Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini and Defensive Coordinator Carl Pelini called me to apologize for the widely reported incident following Saturday night’s game at Kyle Field. Carl Pelini now has issued a public statement to the same effect. Coach Pelini and I share the same recollection of what occurred, and I have forgiven him.
I also was contacted by Athletic Director Tom Osborne, and I want to express my thanks to Coach Osborne for his sincere efforts to resolve the situation.
Contrary to some speculation, TexAgs.com’s motivation in reporting this incident was never punitive or financial. Certainly, at no point were we interested in creating a prolonged ordeal. Given the nature of what occurred and the subsequent events and statements, we had two primary interests: A public telling of the truth and an acknowledgement that what happened was not acceptable. We are satisfied that both have been achieved, and we consider the matter resolved.
