Pelini takes cat joke to next level

Pelini takes cat joke to next level

Nebraska’s annual Red-White Spring Game, 4.12.14

Making light of an inside Twitter joke, Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini holds aloft a cat as the Huskers emerge from the tunnel walk prior to Nebraska’s annual Red-White Spring Game on Saturday, April 12, 2014, at Memorial Stadium.

Husker coach Bo Pelini had company as he conducted the Tunnel Walk for Saturday's Spring Game.

Wearing a stone-faced expression, Pelini cradled a cat in his arms as HuskerVision showed the coach leading his team onto the field.

It continued an ongoing joke Pelini has had with popular Twitter poster @FauxPelini, who uses a doctored photo of the Husker head coach holding a cat as his avatar.

The crowd roared as the real Pelini held the cat into the air like Simba in "The Lion King."

It seems even @FauxPelini was willing to concede Nebraska's head coach had won this joke-off.

We'll have more from the Spring Game, not all of it cat related.
