Nebraska coach Bo Pelini is not one for simplicity. His first six years in Lincoln have seen its fair share of theatrics, whether it is on the field or in front of the press. For reference, last fall, a tape was released of Pelini calling the Cornhuskers faithful "fair-weather" fans. Meanwhile, the coach won nine games, including a Hail Mary instant classic against Northwestern and a Gator Bowl win over Georgia.

Pelini is already starting 2014 off with eccentricities. To unveil the Cornhuskers' new "Red Rising" alternate jersey, Pelini surprised players by putting himself in the uniform.

Yes, that is a 46-year-old Pelini pushing his players around while disguised as an Adidas model ready to take the field at Memorial Stadium.

The players appear to get a kick out of it, but they are not overly surprised. Even summer days are not quiet in Lincoln under Pelini.
