Faux Bo Helping With Fund-Raiser


Husker fans are likely familiar with the Twitter work of @FauxPelini. The man behind the tweets is stepping it up a notch.

You've seen the infamous image of Coach Bo Pelini walking out of the tunnel of the spring game carrying a cat. It was the coach's way of playfully responding to the fake Twitter account of him.

The picture shows a Photoshopped image of the coach in a sweater holding the cat.

We interviewed the man behind the fake Pelini account, keeping a lid on his anonymity. He’s signed a football along with Coach Pelini to auction for Legal Aid of Nebraska.

We asked Faux Pelini if he's going to sign the football with a paw print.

He said, “Willing to paw print, crazy comment, inappropriate something or another. If someone wants to pay to win the thing, we'll figure that out.

“I'm really just a passenger on this but happy to help out. And help publicize it through the Tweets."

The idea came from the organizer of the auction. You can bid on the football through the end of the month on eBay. Click here.
