Chicago, the 2nd City...
Home of the Navy Pier, World Famous Pizza, the Cubs and White Sox, and for these two days, the Big 10 Football Media Conference.
Nebraska football coach Bo Pelini and three of his players are there to talk about the upcoming 2014 season which starts August 30th against the Owls of Florida Atlantic.
Reporter Jeff Packer is also in the Windy City and got a chance to talk to those Huskers.
BO PELINI WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO TALK BO PELINI AT THE 2014 MEDIA DAYS HERE IN CHICAGO. HE PROMISED THE BALLROOM HERE AT THE DOWNTOWN CHICAGO HILTON HE'SNOT THAT AGRESSIVE FIERY QUOTE UN QUOTE ANIMAL WE'VE COME TO KNOW HIM AS ON THE SIDELINES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA.
YOU KNOW WHAT I'M NOT TRYING I'VE ALWAYS HAD FUN. I'VE ALWAYS BEEN I GUESS I'VE NEVER REALLY CHANGED VERY MUCH, I THINK I'VE GROWN. SOME PEOPLE AROUND ME HAVE ENCOURAGED ME TO SHOW THAT SIDE AND I'VE JUST TRIED TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF FUN WITH IT AND I HAVE HAD SOME FUN WITH IT.
LIKE I SAID I'D FOLLOW THAT MAN ANYWHERE. HE HAS BEEN MORE INSPIRATIONAL IN MY LIFE THAN ANYBODY AND I'VE SAID THAT.
HE IS THE STANDARD THAT TRICKLES DOWN TO THE SENIORS, THAT TRICKLES DOWN TO THE UNDERCLASSMEN OF WORKING WITH A PURPOSE. IF WE HAD THE FIGURE OF COACH PELINI TO LOOK UP TO RIGHT NOW I DON'T KNOW WHERE OUR OFF SEASON WOULD HAVE WENT AND I FEEL THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST OFF SEASONS WE'VE HAD.
PELINI FURTHER ADDED TO HIS PERCEPCION BY DISCUSSING THAT CAT RAISING ENTRANCE AT THE SPRING GAME WE ALL REMEMBER WE ALL REMEMBER BACK IN APRIL. HE PROMISED THAT THAT VERY CAT WAS HERE IN THE CHICAGO DOWNTOWN HILTON SLEEPING UPSTAIRS WHILE HE ADDRESSED THE MEDIA IN THE CHICAGO HILTON BALLROOM. HE HOPES THAT ACTIONS LIKE THAT WILL FURTHER HELP HIS PERCEPCION AROUND THE BIG TEN. REPORITNG IN CHICAGO JEFF PACKER.
