"What I watched was a mentally weak football team, a bad football team, especially on the defensive side of the football," Husker coach Bo Pelini said. "Call it what it is. We have a long, long, long way to go."

Bo Pelini is not talking about Nebraska's performance in the Capital One Bowl here, but rather the Huskers' showing at this weekend's spring practice. As you might imagine, Pelini had some additional thoughts to share with the Journal Star:
