Video: NE football coach takes cat with him to spring scrimmage; a Lion King moment in front of crowd
He has tried to ignore the account and its snark (samples here and here) but @fauxPelini now has a stadium's worth of followers, so Coach decided to have some fun with his alter ego during Saturday's spring scrimmage. (Check out attendance in video of the stands, shot in football-mad Lincoln, and remember: this isn't even a real game.)
The cat, that Pelini held aloft a la The Lion King, isn't his.
More from SportsCenter, which had its own fun with the event:
