NU chancellor unhappy with Pelini's actions

Nebraska coach Bo Pelini will be hearing from university chancellor Harvey Perlman, athletic director Tom Osborne or both later this week regarding his behavior on the sideline during Saturday night's 9-6 loss to Texas A&M.

Perlman told The Associated Press on Sunday that Pelini's verbal assault of officials during Saturday's game at Texas A&M did not reflect well on the university or the football program.

The game was televised on ABC, and Perlman called camera shots of Pelini's outbursts "unfortunate." He said he, athletic director Tom Osborne or both of them will address the matter with Pelini. Perlman wouldn't speculate on whether disciplinary action would be taken.

The Cornhuskers were penalized 16 times for 140 yards in the 9-6 loss. Pelini was seen yelling at officials after many of the penalties, and he was called for unsportsmanlike conduct early in the fourth quarter.

Pelini also was seen ripping into quarterback Taylor Martinez.
