Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014 at 4 p.m. EST will go down in history as one of the greatest Twitter moments of all time. That’s because that’s when the parody Twitter account @FauxPelini, inspired by the now-former the University of Nebraska football coach Bo Pelini, began penning, er, typing a legendary welcome letter to the new Cornhuskers coach Mike Riley.
After starting off with a bang, the letter written by “Fake Bo Pelini,” who once influenced the real Pelini to carry a real-life cat onto a football field, began to dish out some much-needed advice to Riley (or whoever).
The person behind the Twitter account, which has racked up more than 166,000 followers, got in a crack in on Nebraska’s athletic director, as well.
And certain former employees … ahem, Carl Pelini.
Fake Pelini then offers some more general guidelines to follow. Or maybe not to follow.
Fake Pelini then takes aim at college athletics, in general.
And then Fake Pelini bids adieu.
Whatever the case, @FauxPelini’s dropped the mic for now.
