Faux or Bo – Who Said It?

bo pelini madThey say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Sometimes, though, the impression is so impeccable that the line between parody and reality is blurred.

Bo Pelini’s reputation for being just a tad-bit short with everyone and anyone precedes him at this point of his career, but that’s not entirely a bad thing. Without his sideline explosions and Belichick-like approach to press conferences we might have never been introduced to the wildly entertaining Faux Pelini.

The imitator has done such a great job of channeling the original that some have questioned whether or not the real Bo Pelini isn’t behind the account. Although this is HIGHLY unlikely, I’m so confident that it’s not that I’d bet my Runza Eating license on it, you’d have a hard time deciphering between Faux’s Tweet’s and interview answers and the real Bo’s quotes.

Don’t believe me? Well, see if you can identify which quotes were Faux and which were Bo.


1. “The BCS! That’s why they made that call!”

2. “My job isn’t to win football games…”

3. “We just have to execute. Georgia is a good football team. It’s a process. Shut up. Next question.”

4. Regarding a recruit’s decommitment: “‘Best of luck, you’re going to need it.”

5. “If you’re going to kick a terrible punt try not to use backspin as well.”

6. Regarding typical message board fans: “”Biff the blogger who sits in his basement and has no job.”

7. “Contrary to what you guys think, I haven’t forgotten how to coach defense and how to stop the run.”

8. “Hey Carl, you got a minute?”

9. “I’d be 100% fine with it if we stopped committing pass interference on third down.”

10. “Nebraska is back and we’re here to stay.”

11. “Have at it, I gotta soccer game to go to.”

12. “I think every now and then you gotta get smacked in the face and get a wake up call.”

13. “You watched the game, you figure it out.”

14. Regarding what went wrong during the 1st half of a game: “Mainly the offense and defense.”

15. “So lets take that N, stick it underneath their chin FOR FOUR QUARTERS AND GET AFTER SOMEBODIES ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

16. “You c%#+-^(*@r!”

    It’s pretty easy when you spend so much time obsessing over the team that you can remember when all of these were said and by whom. Anyway, I should get a life.
