Statements from Perlman, Eichorst, and Pelini

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Harvey Perlman, Nebraska Director of Athletics Shawn Eichorst and Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini issued the following statements on Monday.

Harvey Perlman, Chancellor:

"I am aware of the publication of Coach Pelini's comments, I am disappointed and in discussions with Shawn Eichorst about addressing the issue." 

Shawn Eichorst, Director of Athletics: 

“I am disheartened and disappointed by the 2011 comments published today attributed to Coach Pelini about our dedicated and passionate fans and supporters. I have spoken with Chancellor Perlman and I have addressed the situation with Bo and expressed our deep concern."

Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini also issued the following statement.

“I want to sincerely apologize for my comments from two years ago which became public today.  I take full responsibility for these comments.  They were spoken in a private room following the Ohio State game.  I was venting following a series of emotional events which led to this moment.  That being said, these comments are in no way indicative of my true feelings.  I love it here in Nebraska and feel fortunate to be associated with such a great University and fan base.  I again apologize to anyone whom I have offended.”
