It started a couple of years ago when Mark Manning, the Nebraska wrestling coach, was bragging that he could take Brandon Rigoni, a special teams standout on the Husker football team.
The back and forth went on for a couple of years until Rigoni used up his eligibility.
They finally got it on last week. Manning was given five shots to stop Rigoni from scoring. Among those in attendance were Bo Pelini and Tom Osborne.
Bo Pelini has yet to lose his first game as Nebraska coach, but he's already feeling the heat. Pelini showed up at Tuesday's weekly news conference and became the news when he wasn't wearing red.
"I don't see the difference for a press conference," said Pelini, who wore khaki pants and a striped blue polo shirt. "Am I going to get a lot of heat from you guys?"
Although Cornhusker fans might give Pelini a pass this time, they are mindful of Bill Callahan's fashion choices last season. As the losses mounted, Callahan started wearing tan sweaters to news conferences.
