Media days are a good time for coaches and players to show off their personalities to the nation. While the Big Ten doesn’t have guys who spit out an amazing quote per minute like Steve Spurrier, Les Miles, or Mike Leach in the coaching ranks, there are still a few guys who know how to have some fun. Nebraska’s Bo Pelini has embraced his online alter-ego @FauxPelini over the last few months, and he continued to be in on the joke at today’s media session.
Bo Pelini says his cat is here and enjoying the hotel room right now.

This obviously harkens back to Nebraska’s spring football game, when Pelini walked out on the field with a cat, a nod to @FauxPelini’s amazing Twitter profile picture. Those of us who write about college football really hope this funny, self-deprecating Pelini is here to stay.
