Bo Pelini was mad. Really mad. To show his anger, he violently swung his white hat at a referee. Within seconds, the official reacted by throwing a flag and hitting the head coach with a unsportsmanlike penalty.
Here’s a GIF of the ordeal:
Personally, I think it was a legit penalty. The ref flinched when the hat was swung at him. Head coaches need to compose themselves better than that.
After the game, Bo Pelini wasn’t any happier. Getting crushed 38-17 by Iowa kept him in a sour mood.
