Steve Sipple (LJS) with Bo on Taylor Martinez

+

Kudos to Sip for asking Bo some really tough questions regarding Taylor Martinez. We all know Bo doesn't really care for the media chasing rumors like this, but it has to be done. That having been said, this is what I've thought all along: the rumors are just that - rumors. Bo just doesn't play games with this stuff. Remember Cody Glenn? When he was suspended, he was suspended, pure and simple. Same with Philip Dillard - he didn't play because he wasn't fully on board. Even this season, LaVonte David goes for 19 tackles and Bo says "he made a lot of mistakes." It's not about being a jerk, it's about being 100% truthful with his players - and it's one of the things that kept this season's QB situation from exploding in the team's face (like Arizona State's situation did the year Sam Keller decided to transfer to NU). With Bo in charge, that kind of stuff just isn't going to happen. Players may leave, but it won't be due to Pelini or another coach lying to them or to the media about them - it appears that's just something Nebraska doesn't do, and I'm very happy about it.
