Bo Pelini brought a cat to Nebraska’s spring game Saturday.

Well, sure, he did. Cats just love this sort of thing.

The cat seems dubious, but the Cornhuskers coach actually had a not wholly unreasonable for doing this. The kitty became kind of a big deal last fall when @FauxPelini, a Twitter parody account, used a photo of Pelini and feline as its avatar. The coach playfully asked for him/her back in January.

He upped the ante Saturday.
