One of the sports world's most popular Twitter accounts could soon be no more.

The man behind @FauxPelini, a parody account of ex-Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, told the Associated Press that he's "not sure" right now whether the account will continue now that the real Pelini was fired on Sunday

The @FauxPelini account was created in December 2010 and currently has 161,000 followers. All that is known about the man behind it is that he is a Nebraska fan who lives in the Chicago area, according to the AP.

The account, which features a classic profile picture of the real Pelini holding a cat, became so popular that Pelini came out of the tunnel for the Cornhuskers' spring game in 2014 holding a cat above his head in a nod to @FauxPelini. 

The Fake Pelini met Sunday's news about as amazingly as you would expect:
