Maybe Nebraska coach Bo Pelini really is kinder and gentler this year.
How else to explain his willingness to pose for a photo with a newlywed couple on Saturday -- the same day he learned he would be without three potential defensive starters for the season.
OK, so maybe Pelini doesn't look totally into the picture-taking. But, hey, he was willing to do it.
And if you're wondering about Pelini's T-shirt, it's one touting Cardinal Mooney High in Youngstown, Ohio, Pelini's high school alma mater. He also spent one season at the high school as an assistant coach -- overseeing the quarterbacks.
