LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska coach Bo Pelini had to know he would be peppered with questions about the state of his program following a second straight loss characterized by another embarrassing defensive performance.
At one point Monday during his weekly news conference, he interrupted an inquisitor and pleaded, "Could we talk about Iowa, please?"
Reporters obliged him, but only briefly, and then returned to the topic that has Nebraska fans preoccupied for a second straight November. It is Pelini's job status, not necessarily the Hawkeyes, that folks around here will be talking about over Thanksgiving dinner.
