What is Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini doing talking about the Cleveland Indians?

Well, Pelini is from Youngstown and an Indians fan, so when calling into a Nebraska sports radio show, his question for Huskers baseball coach Darin Erstad was a no-brainer.

"Wouldn’t you agree that the Cleveland Indians are gonna win the World Series and they’re the best team in the league?" Pelini asked.

Erstad, who played 14 years in the majors, was not as optimistic, saying the Indians have an "outside shot" but that he’d be shocked to see them return to the playoffs.

He did, however, offer praise to manager Terry Francona and the loyal fans of the Tribe.
