If you listen to that entire Pelini speech it is astounding. his hate (and there is no other word for it) for his now former AD is stunning.
I can appreciate him baring his soul to his players and i believe him when he says he cares about them etc.
but i cant help but think he has so severely tainted that bunch of players for Riley that you could see mas defections from them in the next several months.
His comment about Osbourne being "forced out" was a bit revelatory.
As noted above i wonder if Tressell at al at YSU had heard that or knew of it before now. If not how will that be viewed by them?
I can understand his frustration and his going to down to YSU makes a great deal more sense, ie he simply wants to get away from the spot light and what that entails.
other things that caught my ear was saying he almost resigned the year before out of frustration with the lack of support and BS he was facing. Also his comment about how the negative atmosphere there was worse than anything he had experienced at OSU, LSU or Oklahoma.
Referencing how Frank Solich got fired and insinuating that it was a bad move, etc
appreciate the mans honest, but sometime discretion is the better part of valor and perhaps he should have bit his tongue just a bit.
That kind of speech can burn bridges not just with Braska, but now that it is out, it could taint the rest of his career. I think he can kiss any future big time jobs goodbye with that,,,and given his frustration perhaps he doesnt care and will be fine with just "being a coach".
