Bo Pelini's Wikipedia page got a weird makeover

Wednesday December 10th, 2014

Late Tuesday night someone vandalized former Nebraska coach Bo Pelini's Wikipedia page in a very weird and detailed way.

The prankster listed Pelini as the coach of the Nebraska State Springboks, a school that does not exist, and also filled out a section on the team's 12-1 2015 campaign, with its only loss coming in the SEC championship game to Alabama, after which it faced off against the Cornhuskers in the Citrus Bowl.

It also appears that the links for "Nebraska State" all head to Creighton University.

Could a time traveler be trying to tell us that Creighton will be changing its name, adding a football program and joining the SEC all before next season, or did someone just have a weird idea and a little too much time on their hands?
