Obviously this isn't going to take as long as it did four years ago. A plane was spotted leaving Lincoln for Baton Rouge today, and everybody's already putting 2 and 2 together. This just two days after Bo Pellini's defense let former Husker dance partner Houston Nutt and his team ruin LSU's National Championship dreams.
Pellini would obviously be a very popular coach is he's still very loved among Husker Nation devotees. Most wanted him to take over after Frank Solich four years ago, and were stunned when Billy C didn't keep him on the staff. At any rate, it at least looks like the state of Nebraska won't be held hostage for the next 45 days.
