September 16, 2013On Monday afternoon, Deadspin posted an audio clip of comments Bo Pelini made following the Huskers' 2011 win over Ohio State. Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman and athletic director Shawn Eichorst released statements later Monday evening.
Perlman: "I am aware of the publication of Coach Pelini's comments, I am disappointed and in discussions with Shawn Eichorst about addressing the issue."
Eichorst: "I am disheartened and disappointed by the 2011 comments published today attributed to Coach Pelini about our dedicated and passionate fans and supporters. I have spoken with Chancellor Perlman and I have addressed the situation with Bo and expressed our deep concern."
Later Monday night, Pelini himself released a statement.
"I want to sincerely apologize for my comments from two years ago which became public today. I take full responsibility for these comments. They were spoken in a private room following the Ohio State game. I was venting following a series of emotional events which led to this moment. That being said, these comments are in no way indicative of my true feelings. I love it here in Nebraska and feel fortunate to be associated with such a great University and fan base. I again apologize to anyone whom I have offended."
HuskerOnline will release any further updates when they are received.
