How 'Bout That Defense?

Big 12 Links

I'll spotlight two specific links here at the top.  I was very happy to see Jon writing most of what he did in the first link.  I obviously don't agree with even a "maybe" with the "Big 12 wants Nebraska to lose" conspiracy theories.  (You can't think of Dan Beebe as an incompetent boob and simultaneously think he's a mastermind capable of putting together a vast, untraceable officiating conspiracy.  He can't be both.  There is no "conspiracy" here -- Nebraska simply committed more penalties than Texas A&M.  They got hosed on a couple of key calls, but it wasn't the worst-officiated game I've ever seen. Not even close.)

But while I'm completely okay with the occasional airing of grievances -- Gary Pinkel clearly does it from time to time, and I usually like it when he does -- you simply cannot act as ridiculous and immature as the Pelinis did for the entire game, after good calls and bad ones.  He gets paid way too much money; he has to be able to control his emotions at least a bit.  I realize that most Nebraska fans not only support him in his ridiculousness, but probably one-up him in that department right now, but that doesn't make it right.  Honestly, he should be fined ... and if the Big 12 announced he was suspended for a game for his embarrassing tantrums, I would not find it that objectionable.  (Plus, it would be hilarious. But that's another story.)
