Reactions to obscene 2011 Bo Pelini tirade way funnier than NU head football coach's actual rant

The big news in football-mad Nebraska is DEADSPIN's posting, Monday, of a sotto voce rant by NU Football Head Coach Bo Pelini, efficiently employing the f-bomb to describe at various times, two sportswriters for the Omaha World-Herald, as well as Nebraska fans.
     ...our tipster was particularly exercised by Nebraska's flameout against UCLA on Saturday, which has led to some awkwardness in Huskerdom. In the 2011 audio, Pelini says the word "fuck" a lot. He seems to have no idea he was being recorded.
     Our tipster says the recording was made on Oct. 8, 2011, just after Nebraska had come back from three touchdowns down to beat Ohio State in Lincoln. He or she only recently had come into possession of this audio before sending it our way. It was recorded moments before Pelini did his postgame radio interview with Greg Sharpe of the Husker Sports Network. Pelini sounded anything but relieved by the big victory.
     Not to be ignored was Pelini's fake twitter account, FauxPelini, which is followed by more than 40,000 people and which went immediately into overdrive. Pelini will at least get spanked by NU chancellor Harvey Perlman, who has a sharp sense of humor, but was probably unamused when Nebraska's head football coach invited the Cornhuskers who have filled Memorial Stadium in consecutive sellouts since the 1960s to go fuck themselves.
