.With two games left in his sixth season as Husker football coach, all Bo Pelini is focused on is finishing the season the right way, with a victory Friday against the Iowa Hawkeyes.

As News 5's Will Sherratt reports, the coach's future has been subject of plenty of discussion.

The hot topic around the Nebraska football program continues to be the job security of head coach Bo Pelini.

Pelini saying today that he addressed his team last week amidst the internet rumors that he was going to resign at the end of the season.

Calling the speculation quote "The Craziest thing I have ever seen", and that  the man speculating ought to be ashamed of himself.

The only opinion that counts is of course Shawn Eichorst's and Pelini says he hasn't spoken to the AD about his future at Nebraska.

Sean has a process he goes through. I would expect everybody else to have respect for that process. Like I said, as far as I'm concerned, it's business as usual. It's a short week. I'm just concerned with coaching football. That's all I'm worried about.

But if you aske the players, it's clear, they're behind their head coach.

We're so close in a lot of games. We have to put it together. We have been really consistant and that's one thing we can hang our hats on. Coach Bo has done a really good job getting the most out of his players.

Ask Bo and he'll tell you, the season has not met the expectations despite all his team has been through. And Despite three losses to date and a missed opportunity for a repeat trip to Indianapolis Pelini doesn't feel he is coaching for his job.

I want to be here. I want to be here if they want me here and I'm not saying Shawn does or doesn't, if they don't want me here then I will move on. I can say this, I can look myself in the mirror and feel good about what I have done for this program.

A good way to help silence some of the critics would be a victory on Friday as their rivals and I use the term loosely from Iowa City roll into town for an 11AM kick as the Huskers look for their 6th straight win over the Hawkeyes.
