"Actually, I (Pelini)didn't even know my name got thrown around," he said, when asked about the Arkansas opening. "I don't even know how that stuff happens. I'm here and I'm happy to be here."
The fifth-year Huskers coach called Nebraska "a destination job" and said his sole intention was to try and bring a championship to Lincoln. He said all other speculation linking him to Arkansas is "kind of ludicrous."
Really it is ludicrous thinking Pelini would want to leave Nebraska for Arkansas. Being head coach of the Cornhuskers is a higher profile job than Arkansas, and probably always will be. Razorback fans are just going to have to lower their expectations of who the Hogs next coach is going to be, because it won't be a blue-chipper.
