According to Omaha.com, Pelini had spent some time discussing challenges facing modern coaches, and what they deal with concerning players, families and backgrounds, when he was asked to elaborate. Pelini said:
“Let’s face it, [marijuana is] not OK. I think everybody that’s our age, my age, hopefully understands that it’s not OK. It’s not good. It’s not good for you. And these kids do it on a daily basis and a yearly basis … and it’s a real problem out there.
“Fortunately for us it is not (an issue) in our program. But I can tell you around college football and college athletics . . . serious in college. I guarantee you walk into dorms nowadays and it is a horrible problem.”
“I think it’s something in society we need to get fixed, but unfortunately they get bad information."
Meanwhile, the majority of of America thinks that marijuana should be legal and that laws are what really need fixing. Of course, the majority of America does not coach a major college football program.
Anyhow, with soundbites like these, the humorous Pelini, who blew up the Internet in April when he entered a spring game with his cat, has become a sort-of Big Ten version of his colorful former LSU colleague Les Miles. Incidentally, Les Miles LOVES grass.
