Nebraska plans to address Pelini about decorum

Sunday, November 21, 2010; 11:04 PM

Nebraska Chancellor Harvey Perlman told the Associated Press on Sunday that Coach Bo Pelini's verbal assault of officials during Saturday night's 9-6 loss at Texas A&M did not reflect well on the university or the football program.

"I think it was very unfortunate," Perlman said, "and I think it's something we'll have to address with Bo."

The game was televised on ABC, and Perlman said he felt uneasy about the numerous camera shots of Pelini's outbursts. Perlman spoke Sunday morning with Athletic Director Tom Osborne about Pelini's conduct, and the chancellor said he, Osborne or both would talk to Pelini about his decorum. Perlman wouldn't speculate on whether disciplinary action would be taken. . . .

Rob Lytle, an all-American running back at Michigan who scored a touchdown in the 1978 Super Bowl as a Denver Broncos rookie, has died. He was 56. He died of a heart attack Saturday night in Fremont, Ohio, Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Chasity O'Neill said.
