Last Sunday I reported on a controversy involving a video shot by a Texas A&M sports website reporter after the Aggies-Nebraska game at Kyle Field on Saturday.
(Coverup always worse than the crime)
The video, shot by TexAgs.com co-Owner Brandon Jones, seemed to show that Nebraska assistant coach Carl Pelini may have instigated an altercation with Jones that included Pelini trying to grab the reporter’s camera.
Despite Jones insisting that was the case, Carl Pelini did not address the matter with the media himself after the game, instead letting brother Bo, the head coach of the Huskers, explain what happen during a press conference in Lincoln on Monday.
Before Bo spoke, this was the only video known of the confrontation:
With the video available of the confrontation still somewhat inconclusive, Bo said yesterday:
“There was a player in a group of people trying to get out of it, and Carl saw it and went over to try and pull the player into the locker room. I guess it happened on the way to the locker room, and as he did so apparently he went through the camera to get it, and if something happened to the camera, I know Carl regrets that it happened.
“That’s what happened and I talked to the player that was involved too.”
After Bo Pelini’s remarks, TexAgs.com posted additional screen shots from different, HD video that clearly showed Carl Pelini grabbing Jones’ camera on the field after the game. Read more…
