Former Nebraska RB Rex Burkhead Supports Bo Pelini On Twitter, Writes "Those Fans Gave Up On Us"

Finally someone supporting Bo.

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini is finally getting some support.

Former Cornhuskers running back Rex Burkhead, now with the Cincinnati Bengals, took to Twitter this afternoon to stand up for his former coach, who has been recently criticized for the team's collapse this past Saturday against UCLA, his comments on former NU great Tommie Frazier, and an audio tape leaked by Deadspin in which he curses out fans giving up during the Ohio State game in 2011. Burkhead's response to the situation:

We'll see if any of his other former players come forward in support as well. It'd certainly help his cause.
