Bo's return is great development for Husker Nation. He was a class act as Defensive Coordinator and his win in the Alamo Bowl (while serving as interim Head Coach) after the 2003 season should have earned him the job in the first place. I think though that his finest hour came before the bowl game. After Frank Solich was abruptly fired (despite going 9-3) many of the players were openly talking about refusing to play the bowl game. Pelini quelled this mutiny and somehow got his players to rise to the occasion and stomped Michigan State 17-3.
