Bo Pelini is a hot head in need of some cooling.

Omaha World Herald reporter Lee Barfknecht responded in Sunday’s paper:
The World-Herald is by far the state’s largest news enterprise. As long as there is football at Nebraska, we will cover the actions of the football coach, whether it is Bo Pelini or Bo Diddley. And we’ll do it every day without fear, favor or malice.
