Pelini has been with LSU for the past three years. Next week LSU will be playing in the National Championship game - it wasn't even a question if he would go back to take care of the defensive coaching for this game.

"It's the right thing to do", Pelini said, referring to him coaching in the championship game.

Yes, Bo, that is correct. You wouldn't want to lead a team to a national title game and then jump ship!

I completely support the decision to let him coach the championship game. He owes it to his team at LSU. Besides, a nice side effect of him coaching LSU to a national championship (I do believe LSU will win) is recuriting. Coming to play for someone that played a big part in taking a team to a national championship is an added bonus to what Bo already brings to the Nebraska.
I'm all for Bo coaching the Big Game. There is no doubt it will help for recruiting (especially if they win), and we will have a coach that's had the experience in coaching in a National Championship game. I just hope they get him to sign his contract before he goes.
ESPN was making a big deal about coaches jumping ship before bowl season gets under way and the possibility of changing rules so that a school cannot contact a school until after bowl season. I can see part of their point, with Nutt leaving early and with the cluster that Petrino caused, but if you have a coach that you want why not offer the job? You would think that a coach would want to coach HIS team in a bowl, if they were eligible, like Pelini.

This situation shows that Bo has the class and the respect for and of his teams. LSU asked him and he checked with TO, who of course is a class act himself, and he will coach the Tigers before resuming his duties with the Huskers.

This is an example of how things should be done, with the teams affected getting what they deserve and not the coaches jumping ship in the pursuit of more money.
