A Nebraska fan wrote a goodbye poem for Bo Pelini

Thursday December 4th, 2014

Bo Pelini was fired by Nebraska on Sunday, and the news has really hit a lot of people hard. 

On Tuesday night, Cornhusker players gathered to say goodbye to their coach and express their appreciation. One of the sports world's favorite parody accounts is now even in jeopardy because of the firing.  

Nebraska fans are joining in on the farewells...through poetry. 

7 non-football candidates to replace Bo Pelini

Ignoring how that the final verse sounds like a scene out of that sad Dan Fogelberg song, that's quite a poem. 

Lincoln may never be the same without 'Ole Bo.
