Is Bo Pelini In The Mix At Wisconsin? A 247 Report Says So

I mean..

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Well, we were kid of burned the other day when former Nebraska Cornhuskers Head Coach Bo Pelini was reported to be in the mix at his hometown school of Youngstown State by FootballScoop.

This one.. I dunno man.

To be completely fair, this sounds very odd compared to the Youngstown State rumor. However, these 2 pieces (both VIP) are saying that former Nebraska Cornhuskers HC Bo Pelini is in the race to replace Gary Andersen at Wisconsin after Andersen took the Oregon State job... that was vacated by Mike Riley.. who left Oregon State to take over at Nebraska... that fired Bo Pelini. Cliff Notes will be available soon.

What to make of all this? Well, it's odd to think that a guy who was just fired by Shawn Eichorst, who is probably going to take over for Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez. But then, would Bo take the job knowing that Eichorst could fire him again?
